Super Metroid - Oxide

Hack of Super Metroid

Description:

Oxide is a small hack. It is weird. It has a single Missile expansion that gives you a real concussive load. Items progression is very odd. Area names are quite interesting, and exploring is a big focus. Short, small, and on the easy side. But still a very good hack. And of course, there is Barf Kraid.

575 Missiles is NOT Overkill! It's Practical!

Reviewed By: jm102887 on 09 Nov 2020

So how DO you make something funny out of Super Metroid? Simple! Make the first upgrade come with a ridiculous number attached and have Kraid in serious need of some nausea meds!

THE WORLD: The world of Zebes is a little bit smaller this time around, but for the sake of this hack, it’s actually quite welcome. Given that this one feels more like a joke hack, or at least something resembling a parody, then it’s a joke that lasts just long enough to remain funny without overstaying its welcome. Most of the world looks about like the base game does, but a few are changed up nicely. My favorite was the Toxic Tank, which did look like some kind of chemical plant. I particularly liked that one for some reason.

GAMEPLAY: It’s Super Metroid, but with you getting 575 Missiles from the start…need I say more? ^_~

FUN: Well heck yeah! I remember laughing a lot at this game and sometimes I’m not sure WHY I was! Something about it struck me as funny (probably that 575 missiles had something to do with it), and I just couldn’t contain myself. Spore Spawn having the final boss music was also hilarious enough to me that I even made up a song about it. (Duhh duhh duhh duhduh duhh duhh OHHHHHHHHH!!!!! It’s SPORE SPAWWWWWWN! HEEEEEE’S REALLY MAAAAAD! HE’S GONNA KILLLLL!)

MISSILES: 575, the best number in the universe

MY RATING: 575/10 It’s funny and you get 575 Missiles. What more could you possibly want?

Okay, more seriously, it’s pretty much just standard Super Metroid, but with you getting 575 missiles and a few important upgrades early. This is a relatively easy hack, but as said in the other review even, this is more for spoof’s sake than a major new game. As I said before, it’s a joke that hangs around long enough for you to appreciate it, but doesn’t overstay it’s welcome. So lock and load and start firing off some missiles….you probably won’t run out anytime soon :}
