Another really old piece, but I still love the idea here! In the far future, a young reploid named ‘Fixer’ finds his way into the centuries’ long abandoned ruins of the lower city where he finds and begins to repair old robots, once corrupted by Dr. Wily’s reprogramming. As he fixes them, he also upgrades them, improving their AI and giving them purpose again. The bots begin to follow Fixer, helping more of their fallen comrades and also fighting scores of newer, updated robotic enemies. (I just love my old Nintendo classics and always wanted a way to play as some of my favorite MM bosses!) I figured this could be a more classic turn-based rpg where Fixer gives each of his friends new abilities based on defeated enemies, a new take on MM’s core gameplay theme.
