Welcome improvements for replaying the game

Reviewed By: MattKimura on 17 Dec 2019

This hack is essential for replaying Super Metroid. It’s got improvements for the sake of making the game better to play again in future playthroughs. I can agree with all improvements that were added so I have nothing against anything this hack offers. It’s Super Metroid as you know and love it, but with many quality of life improvements that even newcomers can enjoy. No reason to play the original Super Metroid without this patch.

I really appreciate the optional patch to start off on planet Zebes, I’ve seen the beginning of the game SO many times and I got tired of replaying that part. As long as I keep the original ROM around, I won’t actually lose this part forever. It makes the beginning parts less of a chore, and I’m glad I don’t have to worry about the beginning cut scene that can’t be skipped.

I like how The X-ray visors vision is widened so it unveils the whole screen at once. Beats having to slowly look up and down to find breakable walls.

Overall this hack is great, I highly recommend it to everyone who wants to casually replay the game for the hundredth time. Knowing where to go and using this hack, I was able to get to the end of the game faster than usual at about 2 hours (not a speed runner). The faster screen transition speed makes a big difference compared to the original speed. Because of this, I’d only recommend this hack to casual players and not speed runners since they’re only allowed to play the game by official means. But this does make a good way to practice.
