We've been having fun with charts and graphs each Friday over at Kombo, and this week we turn our attention to the blue bomber himself, Mega Man. I sat down with Eric Frederiksen and Joey Davidson to quantify Mega Man's many adventures, distilling the action into easy to read bar charts, line graphs, technical schematics, and even a Venn diagram with humorous results. It's a little something we call "Check Out This Game's Graphics!".
I'm very pleased with how these came out, but I like the Mega Man schematic most of all. While most of the mechanical parts are taken at face value, take note of the references to the Nintendo Entertainment System's CPU and a knock at the maligned Mega Man Soccer. The base image is taken from Mega Man: Dr. Wily's Revenge, while the font is CyFi which you may have seen recently during the opening title sequence fo the 1980s flashback episode of TV's Fringe. Layers upon layers, people.
