Ancient Chozo

Hack of Super Metroid

Description:

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.

one of the best

Reviewed By: klaus on 16 Jun 2020

this is very high in my list, among the very best full hacks i’ve seen so far.. i don’t understand why there’s so few reviews about it. the artwork is simply outstanding. it captures the real spirit of the original game, being based on exploration and atmosphere. the added rooms, puzzles, music, gfx, it is all amazing. a general overhaul feeling like a complete new super metroid game with high focus on moody ambiance, loneliness, desolated, ruined places falling appart by ravages of time and being abandoned. yes. it is _that_ good.

i cannot wait to see more content from the author. many thanks for your work. i love it. period.
