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.

User Review Information
Almost like a remaster, but held back by ancient controlsReviewed By: vree on 21 Oct 2021
Amazing looking visual update and adds a few extra paths and the like without straying too much from the vanilla experience. This feels like a remaster of the original like Zero Mission and AM2R were for their respective game.
In short this would be the go to vanilla feeling Super Metroid romhack if it wasn’t for the controls.
I guess in that regard Super Metroid “Redux” rom hack spoiled many people.
Only the addition of the following 2 control options would make a world of difference:
- Auto-run options and toggle
- Hold R button to make item active(rockets and the like), release to go back to beam.
It would be great to see similar updated controls/mechanics in this rom hack in the future.
Anyway I can still perfectly advise this rom hack to most people that want a vanilla experience and don’t mind the outdated controls.
