Very good for a first hack

Reviewed By: YodaMorpheus7 on 13 Nov 2020

Just so you know, I typically use rewind when I play hacks.

This was very good for a first hack. Even before I read the description I thought of the Super Metroid intro sequence, and even though I’m not exactly sure what about the physics was changed, the game seems to handle better than vanilla.

I really liked the Samus art. The larger proportions on her almost never caused any issues with navigation, which I think is at least a little impressive. The boss art was also very good, and the Ridley fight overhaul made it leagues better than the original Metroid.

That being said, there was one sticking point. The Mother Brain fight was aggravated by Samus’ larger size, making it a lot harder to dodge rinkas. I also would have appreciated a little bit of that new art style with MB as well, but that’s a very small thing and I can understand if the hacker liked the original already.

All in all, this was a lot of fun to play and the changes made the game a lot less tedious, especially with the new beam combo system from newer titles, which made it so I didn’t have to go back for ice after I got the far superior wave. The ending art was also pretty cool. This hack is a definite yes (at the very least up until MB), and I hope that the creator goes on to do more stuff.

Version 1.1 Recommended - Yes
