    Review updated again, after a fellow user informed me of the fact that the Fire Flower is actually a Superball Flower, and that those were Bombshell Koopas, not the normal kind that leave their shells behind.

    After doing some research, regarding Mario's sprite behavior, and talking with the author of the ROM-hack, I'm re-reviewing this game with a fresh mindset.

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.

Great! But we lose the intro

Reviewed By: Prince Valmont on 16 Nov 2018

I love the functionality added in by this hack. Echoing the others, it really makes the game feel complete.

However, no where was it mentioned that this hack completely removes the intro text at the title screen. It just remains on the Title until the player proceeds to the file select.

Version 0.3 Recommended - Yes
