Ancient Chozo

Hack of Super Metroid

Description:

Ancient Chozo is an expansion of the original Game that contains the original Super Metroid Map with extra rooms and areas locations, plus new routes to find.

It has new GFX in most of the areas and new palettes, Ancient Chozo based on Project Base Hack but it’s not the same. It has new color palette for the entire game, and more places to explore! The new routes makes the game more interesting. My intention is to keep the original route of Vanilla, but players with good skills can break the Game Sequence. Ancient Chozo Hack focused on Explorations and most of the original items locations has been changed!

There’s a lot new secrets to discover, no longer have the help of the X-Ray vision, players can explore and feel curious how to find new ways and upgrades to make the adventure even more enjoyable.

This is good but it needs critical work

Reviewed By: MagickMel on 10 Jun 2018

Visually this hack looks incredible and I am going to be finishing this as soon as I can but there are a couple of issues that need to be fixed or tweaked.

The first and most jarring is the intro sequence with Samus’ left eye. It is completely stationary and does not animate like the eye on the right. It looks incredibly bad and should probably be removed entirely.

The other thing I would recommend tweaking is the intro’s narrative as well as having the ability to speed up the text, similar to Hyper Metroid’s way to do this.

For the narrative, I think it would be best to steer away from the old Super Metroid intro entirely and write something yourself to help set your hack apart from the events that occurred during Super Metroid for your fan-canon.

Aside from this immediate issues, I love the fact that this jumps straight into Zebes instead of going to the space colony ship like every other hack. This is refreshing.

I also love the sprite work and the overall feel of this game so far.
