Metroid: Zero Mission - Chozo Hint Statue Removal

Hack of Metroid: Zero Mission

Description:

This patch completely removes all upright Chozo ‘Hint’ Statues in your immediate path on all three difficulty settings. The player can now explore the first half of the game on their own without any significant interruption or unnecessary hand-holding (the game is arguably linear enough as it is).

Two rooms have also been altered as a way of complementing these deletions. First, the 1×1 room with the second statue that shows you the location of the Ice Beam is now an exact copy of the ‘transition hallway’ that separates the first and second vertical shafts in Brinstar (the room just felt a bit too barren and meaningless with the statue gone, hopefully its replacement doesn’t feel too tacky). Second, the 1×2 room that previously contained the statue pointing towards the Varia Suit now shares the same BGM with all the regular rooms in Norfair (since there’s no longer a statue there, obviously).

Also included is an optional version of the patch with Trunaur68’s Item Toggle/Menu Hack already applied.

Hope you enjoy!

The Game Became 50% Better!

Reviewed By: Rokim21 on 21 Oct 2018

Without those hits the exploration became much more funnier and interesting. The only bad thing about this is that it doesn’t removes the functionality of the Map rooms, that sometimes are impossible to avoid, if you include that the game would be 100% better!
