Ancient Chozo

Hack of Super Metroid


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

It has new GFX in most of the areas and new palettes, Ancient Chozo started from Project Base Hack, but it’s not the same, it has new color palette for the entire game, and even more places to explore plus new custom enemies, moves, puzzles, music, and some few more stuff The new routes makes the game more interesting and more fun to explore. My intention was to keep the original route of Vanilla and add some new routes that can curious players could find, and also the players with good skills can break the Game Sequence. The gameplay now rewards both types of players, those who likes going faster,can now beat the game faster than cause they have new shortcuts and new routes to travel between each area much faster! On the other hand,those who like exploring or breaking the game sequence, now gets most of the upgrades and power ups! Although it’s a task not to easy to perform! Chozo Hack focused on Explorations and most of the original items locations has been changed! There’s a lot of new secrets to discover, new areas, new rooms and no longer have the help of the X-Ray vision, but there’s a new feature find them, so the players can feel curious finding new secrets and upgrades using a different method, so that makes the adventure even more interesting and enjoyable. I’ve have added more rooms and more areas also new gfx and I’ll be adding some more in future versions.

Ancient Chozo Hack is my First Project! I always wanted to have a different Hack with the same map but much more to explore using new and rearranged graphics with some extra stuff like new music and more puzzles. So I just wanted to share some of that. I really like the feeling of loneliness and the ambience in the Metroid series, the ruined places like Chozo Ruins abandoned spots, it’s atmosphere, and the strange creatures, specially the race of the Chozo.

Just play Project Base instead...

Reviewed By: Shade.Usher on 04 Aug 2018

This game is kind of like Project Base, but worse. Project Base opened the game up massively, but this just shuts it right down. I’ve never seen a hack railroad you so hard to Spore Spawn. In general, the game is constantly trying to shut down sequence breaks; the Red Tower is now full of spikes, so you have to use infinite bomb jumps to get up it early. Speed blocks are everywhere for whatever reason.

In general, so much about this is “Project Base but worse”. It does a few things that are cute once, such as making you take a weird path after Spore Spawn to get to the Red Tower, but this is only neat the first time you see it. X-Ray is gone, to make finding things more annoying and tedious. Bosses often have annoyances added to try and make them harder; Spore Spawn being underwater is pure nonsense on every level, and it only serves to make an already tedious fight more tedious. One room has electrified water, which basically makes the water slowly hurt you but also knock you back; as a result, it’s, as far as I could tell, impossible to get out of the water, you’re just stuck there until you die. There are 60 damage spikes everywhere, including really early on when you only have 100 or 200 health. Why is the tube Maridia door permanently locked? Why is it locked at all?

The only things I really liked were the absurd distance you get off of diagonal bomb jumps and the baby metroid thing that broke some blocks. I also like some minor aesthetic things, but they don’t even begin to make up for the issues added. A lot of the issues might be acceptable if it wasn’t so similar to the base game / Project Base; as is, I have no reason to ever play it again when I know Project Base is much better.
