Hack of Metroid II: Return of Samus

Description:

This is basically an updated version of Dan Davis’ already excellent color file from the Game Boy Colorizer homepage. There are too many individual changes to list, but in general terms here are the changes in the updated version:

  • All inadvertently revealed secrets are once again secrets!
  • All mismatched tiles now match!
  • Small changes to a few sprites.
  • Very small color changes to a few background elements.

There are a few minor glitches which are documented at the Metroid Evolution site.

  • V 2.0 UPDATE

Spikeman & Drakon fixed a bunch of stuff and made it so this hack runs on the real hardware. This patch runs start to finish on the real hardware without and major issues.

User Review Information

Not xbox emulator compatible.

Reviewed By: keith courage on 13 Oct 2017

This hack looks fantastic. The only downfall is it started glitching and crashing once I got around the half way point when playing on a softmodded xbox using xboyadvance. However, the other color hack here on romhacking works perfectly with my xbox emulator. Luckily I was able to transfer my save state to that one instead. Just thought I’d mention it in case anyone else has the problem running this on an xbox. Great work on the hack.

Version 2.0 Recommended - Yes
