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.

Almost Perfect

Reviewed By: stcrowe on 18 Feb 2018

This is almost perfect. I love the color chose, and it is much better than the color given by the GameBoy color.

The only reason it is “Almost Perfect” but not quite, is because this hack has a game crashing bug.

When you have 16 metroids left, and your going to kill the 16th metroid, the game will crash as you move up the room right before the room with the 16th metroid.

I’ve tested this glitch with two different ROMs. So the only way to get around this is to play the hacked ROM up to the point of the crash, save, then use the original vanilla ROM, to kill the 16th metroid, save and then return to using the hacked ROM.

Besides that one issue, this is a must have hack.
