Ice Metal 1: Uninstall

Hack of Super Metroid

Description:

Intro:

The great forces of the Galactic Federation Marine Corps were forced to evacuate planet Nerion III. The issue was too big for them to handle, yet too big for the federation to ignore. Therefore, once again, they had no choice but to turn to Samus Aran. An extraordinary bounty hunter armed with the end-all-be-all of Chozo warfare and survival technology, her mission was simple: “Venture into the deepest reaches of the planet and disable the Aurora Unit originally placed there for research.” But what vicious creatures lurk below the surface that can make even the fearless GFMC turn their backs and flee like sissies?

This is a ticket into the world of Ice Metal. Can you uncover the dark, deep secrets buried in Nerion III? Or will you die trying…?

Ice Metal is a Super Metroid hack that puts the focus on exploration, rather then raw skill. There are some new power ups and tricks you need to master in order to beat the game full out, but it mostly tries to stick to how hard the original game was.

There is one new move you need to learn to beat the game, which is mid air morphing. How-to: Press down twice in mid air while holding jump button down.

Ice metal was made for everyone, not just experienced players, beginners, nor casual players. Rather, regardless of your experience with Super Metroid you can jump in and enjoy this hack.

This is also one of the few Super Metroid hacks that futures a major plot. It is generally set after fusion in a “what could happen after fusion” scenario.

Hope you enjoy!

WOW!

Reviewed By: Leviathan Mist on 09 Sep 2010

This hack is the first one I’ve seen that truly brings back the feel of the original game, without requiring you to either be a Super Metroid god, or abuse savestates to get through it. It’s a complete overhaul, the graphics are outstanding, and best of all, it’s FUN to play. Playing this hack for the first time provides an experience equal to or better than playing the original Super Metroid, and that is truly saying something amazing about this game from someone who considers Super Metroid to be their all-time favorite platform game. If you like Metroid games, I guarantee you will love this hack. ‘nuff said.
