Description
This hack is about as non-linear as they come (if I'm correct) and it has the same amount of final items as the original. The difficulty of this hack is kinda on the low end, so if you want more of a challenge let me know, I might make a harder version. This is my first hack so tell me what you think!

A very short, non-linear hack. Item everywhere, lots of places to explore. Has quite a bit of palette changes, but other than those, it is very vanilla like. Good hack to play to kill some time and is very fun to run through again and again to try and get the best route and time when speedrunning.

I found this hack really underwhelming. A shortened, watered-down, easier take on the original game. Some of the palettes were nice, but I found too many of the rooms to be reminiscent of the original game, and the ones that weren't were uninteresting. Most of the save station icons on the map are not actually save stations, and there is something later in the hack that looks like a save station but is not, which was very annoying to find at low energy. Items are too abundantly easy to find, and one expansion can be found early in a very odd place; not sure if that was intended or an oversight, but it creates an unpolished feel. The escape felt discontinuous and the player can easily be led in the completely wrong direction with too little time allotted.

I don't recommend it, but the hack is easy and short, so you have little to lose if you choose to play it. I will say the room Ice is in is really neat.

This is a neat hack. I would recommend this to someone who has never played a SM hack before. The hack is pretty short and isn't too difficult. The level design could help a newcomer recognize the kinds of things are suspicious and should be explored without being too challenging. Some things are more obvious than others, but any player should be able to find plenty of items.

There are a few errors, some are a bigger deal than others. One error in Tourian caused me to get stuck in a wall while in morph ball and I had to reset the game.

The room that ice beam is in is my favorite room in the hack, very cool idea.
