Ice Metal 1: Uninstall

Hack of Super Metroid

Description:

Intro:

The great forces of the Galactic Federation Marine Corps were forced to evacuate planet Nerion III. The issue was too big for them to handle, yet too big for the federation to ignore. Therefore, once again, they had no choice but to turn to Samus Aran. An extraordinary bounty hunter armed with the end-all-be-all of Chozo warfare and survival technology, her mission was simple: “Venture into the deepest reaches of the planet and disable the Aurora Unit originally placed there for research.” But what vicious creatures lurk below the surface that can make even the fearless GFMC turn their backs and flee like sissies?

This is a ticket into the world of Ice Metal. Can you uncover the dark, deep secrets buried in Nerion III? Or will you die trying…?

Ice Metal is a Super Metroid hack that puts the focus on exploration, rather then raw skill. There are some new power ups and tricks you need to master in order to beat the game full out, but it mostly tries to stick to how hard the original game was.

There is one new move you need to learn to beat the game, which is mid air morphing. How-to: Press down twice in mid air while holding jump button down.

Ice metal was made for everyone, not just experienced players, beginners, nor casual players. Rather, regardless of your experience with Super Metroid you can jump in and enjoy this hack.

This is also one of the few Super Metroid hacks that futures a major plot. It is generally set after fusion in a “what could happen after fusion” scenario.

Hope you enjoy!

Unbelievable Beauty

Reviewed By: Mother Kojiro on 16 Jan 2022

This hack is everything a Super Metroid hack should be. The atmosphere is one of eerie isolation, and the scenery is best described as disturbingly beautiful. The puzzles to get upgrades and expansions are clever, with only a few frustratingly obtuse solutions. Glitch skills needed for this hack are minimal; I got through with just one-wall jumping and a few quick charges, and you definitely don’t need to know how to mockball, which is good, because I can’t mockball to save my life. It is a very tough hack - I don’t know if I’m dumb or it just really takes a long time to get any beam upgrades - but absolutely worth it for the haunting scenery and strange Easter Eggs. I liked the repalette version better than the original, but both are lovely.
