Description
A very open-ended hack with exploration as the main goal. Items are strewn about in weird places, and nothing presents too much of a challenge.

Not as good as its big brother Oxide. This one took more effort to complete and didn't feel that great.

Airy is a fun exploration hack with physics that make it feel like you can jump right off the planet. It is extremely easy, as absolutely nothing is a real challenge. Major items are just strewn about randomly it appears. There are some really dark areas of the hack, and the final segment was a load of yuck. If you're longing for something with some length, you could do worse.

This hack started very well. Good physics, cool areas, not hard as balls.

Then came the endless back tracking, enemies that just won't die and impossible speedbooster puzzles to get reserve tanks.

It also feels like the author forgot to give the player beams in this hack and just gave them all at the end saying "oops".

And if it wasn't for the fact that someone warned me about the 1 tile to find the last area, I would of quit this hack before finding it. Word of advice and possible spoiler:

You need grapple beam to get in the last area and it's located near the place where you find space jump. It's hard to find so use your X-ray or MORPH BALL.

Last area of the game was pretty bland with a crapton of metroids in it. Fortunately, they are not hard to deal with, only slow. Escape was anti climactic.

I'm disappointed in this hack because it looked pretty good and had decent level design to keep me interested, just poor design choices on the last half of the game.

Ok, started as a great hack..

Couldn't find supers had to look that up even tho I bombed everywhere and shot everywhere... ofcourse I didnt in correct room, tried hellruns for quite a while.

THen it went on very funny, trolly as never before.

Ridley fight was cool if you made a mistake! ;)

Loved Tourian wasnt what you thought it would be.

If I hadnt a viewer on twitch who remember that grappleblock I wouldnt be able to finish this hack.

Another Cyclamen32 hack I enjoyed. The author made Oxide, Airy and Vino. I liked all of them.

Item progression is very different with most major items available after killing all bosses.
Reserve Tanks require Speedballing in mid-air which is hard. Though I only had issues with one. The rest aren't too bad.

A lot of backtracking for items near the end because there is no shortcut between some areas. That really dark area was a little annoying to go through.

I really loved the last area. It may be a bit bland but I like when it looks different than the original. It was cool. Wish the escape had a timer though.

Difficulty is very easy (with the exception of the Speedball challenges for Reserve Tanks.) not only thanks to your beam having an extremely-fast firing rate that makes you feel like you are Rambo.
If you finished Super Metroid you will be able to finish this game.

I fully recommend this hack, especially to new players.
