The space pirate collection team from sr388 were (predictably) destroyed en route home because of a containment breach, crashing into an asteroid. Years later, the GF has detected their cargo, and Samus must once again infiltrate the hive to purge the Metroids and their queen before they spread...

This is a hard hack to rate considering how quickly it was put together, but I'll try.

This hack has is effective enough to be fun to play. The graphics are samey, as is the room design, the music fails to load at times, the pickups are painfully easy to find, and the first and last saves' graphics are messed up, but it is still fun to play, and that's what matters. Plus, it's a Metroid 2 hack, and those are few and far between, so A for effort. I hope to see more in the future from you Liam. My main complaint is that the save before the Queen Metroid permanently traps you there, without a refill, so you can't get 100% if you haven't already by the time you get there, and you can't check your percentage by refilling so see what all you have. You also can't kill the rest of the Metroids if you stumble across it before killing the rest of them. Due to this, my completion percentage is an estimation.

First real M2 hack however. Beatable, and short, definitely worth a play to see how M2 hacking has advanced.

No completion stats.
This hack has issues, but it's honestly really cool and has a lot of novelty for being the first exploration M2 hack. It was essentially put together in a rush for a contest, and that honestly really shows in the repetitive tiling and bugs galore, but I do think it's worth playing. It's been really cool to see Liam pioneering Metroid 2 hacking, and I believe that this is the beginning of a new hacking scene. I'm excited to see when Liam has the opportunity to make more polished hacks, because this shows me how much potential Metroid 2 has.
