Metroid + Saving Unofficial Update

Hack of Metroid

Description:

An update to the famous Metroid + Saving hack initially designed by snarfblam. Based off the well-hidden 0.4 version (which included wall jumping and a corner map), this version tends to improve some of the graphical issues of that version and add in new content on top of that.

New content includes:

  • Reductions in missile door cost (5 missiles to 1 with red doors and 10 to 5 with yellow/purple doors)
  • Manual saving via Up+A
  • Restored Japanese RNG
  • Sped-up door transitions
  • Morphball glitch initially not seen in original game fixed
  • Health refilled 100% upon respawning

You’re allowed to use this hack as the base of your own hack or on other, already existing hacks (please keep in mind that the ROM of the hack must be expanded). If you would like to leave feedback on the project, please do so. This project was done with the idea of making Metroid a much more enjoyable experience, so if there’s any issues with the current version you’d like to see fixed, feel free to leave feedback or critiques in the review section. Special thanks to snarfblam for making the original + Saving hack.
