Description

Things are looking up for the Bonne family. Having just finished getting their airship, the Gesellschaft, operational, Teisel Bonne sets out with younger brother Bon Bonne to explore an unexplored ruin. Unfortunately for Teisel the loan he took out to pay for the Gesellschaft just came due, and the two Bonne brothers are taken prisoner. Now it's up to Tron to save her siblings and pay off their debt the only way she knows how: Grand Larceny.

Most of the levels in The Misadventures of Tron Bonne are played similarly to Mega Man Legends, but with minor tweaks to controls. Tron's walking tank, the Gustaff, can't equip the wide range of alternate weapons like Mega Man, but it can pick up and hurl large objects like trees and cars. It can also launch beacon bombs which direct the Servbots following Tron to either attack or steal anything in the vicinity. Additional levels include a crate stacking puzzle minigame where Tron needs to steal selected crates of valuables in a limited number of moves, and a first person dungeon exploration section where Tron must depend on the Servbots alone to clear out traps and enemies. Despite the Servbots all looking alike, each one has unique stats and abilities. By taking them on missions, training them aboard the Gesellschaft, or using special items their stats can be raised, unlocking hidden talents.

Trivia

When you begin a new game, head straight for Mission 1: "Rob The Bank!". If you're playing Level 1 of the mission, shoot a Beacon Bomb into the house to the right of the animal hospital and let the Servbots go into the house. While in the house, one Servbot on your team will turn on a TV, and guess who's on it? None other that Capcom's very own Mega Man, complete with NES-style graphics and a little "Stage Chosen" fanfare from the first Mega Man game playing in the background!

Keep your eyes peeled during other parts of this game, as there are a lot more Mega Man refrences than just that one! ^_^
