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:

Excelent hack, but only two things missing would make it a lot better...

Reviewed By: Tsukiyomaru0 on 08 Jul 2014

It’s one of the best Metroid hacks there is, but only two things could have been added to make it a LOT better.

1. A Save Station. Could be a room with a different Chozo Statue that triggers the Continue/Save prompt or even better: A floppy disc icon could appear in the corner of the screen to show that the game has been saved when going up or down elevators!

2. Starting Energy = Max Energy. One of the WORST things about the first Metroid is how it forces you to farm from health as soon as you choose to continue your game. Perhaps in future we could see this dealt with.
