A "Just Right" Update

Reviewed By: lastdual on 31 Dec 2019

I love quality-of-life hacks that update a game in subtle yet impactful ways, all while preserving the overall feel of the original. Turbo does just that, and the updates here are so welcome as to make vanilla Super Metroid virtually obsolete (blasphemy, I know).

Past attempts at doing this usually altered the game a bit too much for my taste (or were lacking a needed addition such as Control Freak), but this hack hits that “just right” feel that makes it really hard to go back once you’ve experienced it. The optional patches are also appreciated.

Whether you’re doing your 200th run of the game of diving in for the first time, Super Metroid Turbo is sure to enhance your experience.
