Metroid + Saving

Hack of Metroid

Description:

This hack replaces Metroid’s password system with a saving system, offering three save files. The file selection menu shows the player’s equipment, and as an added bonus, the player’s health is now saved (no need to grind for health every time you resume your game). The save system can be a handy addition for those who don’t like to use save-states, or those playing on a flash-cart.

Included is a scrollable map when the game is paused and the ability to combine wave and ice beams.

Version 0.3 fixes a bug that could prevent the game from booting correctly in some cases. The hack has been tested and confirmed to work on the PowerPak as well as a normal cart.

Glitched, but love the improvements!

THE CONS

I played through all the way past Brinstar and onto Norfair and the first thing I notice is the environmental enemies that look like a red button on the ground that spits popcorn at you (couldn’t figure out his name), in this hack they no longer ever spit popcorn. That enemy is broken for some reason and just looks like random red buttons lying on the ground now. I tried reloading and resetting but nothing makes them work (never any spitting). I stopped playing after that because I didn’t want to move forward after that, even though those enemies are only in 2 rooms. Still, I didn’t want to take the chance that more could be broken.

THE PROS

Saving is great. The map is the most important addition and saves new players from spoiling the treasure locations by looking online. It is also extremely convenient to just press pause and there’s your map. Didn’t get far enough to try combined beams.

Version 0.3 Recommended - No
