It's what you would expect from someone who originally tried to rate his own hack with 5 orbs and calls everyone who dislikes it "casuals", "trash" or "bad" (Thanks for the lovely PMs, author).

Anyway, don't bother with this unless you hate yourself.

This is your typical halfhack. It has bad colors, a red Crateria like every other one before it, spikes jabbing you around every corner, fake items, forced gauntlet, permastucks, etc. It is NOT a hack you play if you want to blow off some steam. There are gates in many different places making progression almost completely linear with the exception of a couple items. If you stop paying attention for a little bit, you might fall into one of the tens of death traps that were set, many of them being in Norfair and Maridia. The thing that probably bothered me the most was forcing the player to go through as much of a room as possible to get to the other side. What I mean by this is morph ball mazes, blocks placed just as obstructions so you can’t get to where you want to go the short way, invisible blocks, and other things.
In short, play this hack if you want to be confused and annoyed. And yes, it is fully beatable.

This hack is not worth your time. I've played hacks like this before, and I have never beaten a single one of them for one reason: they aren't fun. Being hard for the sake of being hard is almost never the way to go when making a hack. (It also reinforces the stereotype that this is all that ROM hacks are.) When players encounter situations where the game is being cheap, or unnecessarily punishing, it makes want to stop playing; this happens a lot in this hack. My hope is that the author takes the criticism of this hack and goes and makes a much better hack because this is not worth your time to try to play.

The worst thing about this hack is that it's painfully boring.
The best thing about this hack is that you can get a sense of how boring and poorly designed it is from the first few rooms.

I've always been a fan of challenge hacks, such as Cliffhanger and Super Mega-Metroid X-2. If you like those hacks, this is not for you. It offers nothing more than rooms of spikes and attempts to troll the player.
Not only is the hack not interesting, it's also pretty broken. Tons of palettes are wrong, and the enemy graphics are all messed up in some rooms.

Everyone should be able to remove the artist from the art (or in this case poorly designed half hack), but it's important to note that the author doesn't take criticism, and as a result you can be fairly confident that this hack is not going to improve over time. The tile errors, perma-stucks, palette problems, are all likely to be permanent fixtures of this hack.

So tl;dr: don't bother with this hack. Obviously.

Oh and the writing for the intro sounds like a bad fanfiction, so there's that.
