Hack of Metroid

Description:

This hack is the combination of three individual hacks. It was created to be the ultimate NES remake of a classic game.

The original palette has been utilized and the layout of the map is exactly as the original. The only exception is the room where you fight Ridley. To reduce flicker (as much as possible) I had to place Ridley above the doors.

I do not claim any credit for the actual content - only for the hard work of making it all work together.

All credits go to the below listed hacks and their individual authors:

I finally finished Metroid

Reviewed By: vlike2party on 08 Aug 2020

Before I never have any interest to play Nes Metroid. The main character sprite is not attractive. Even it’s a classic in a lot of people’s eyes, it age badly. This Hacks make a lot of change. Samus, enemy, main screen and background sprite all have a nice update. Make me start from begin to play this game till it end! And also go for second round for that less than an hour ending! :) Nice job dACE and all the order three authors, thanks!
