For a halfhack, it's actually not terrible overall. My favorite thing about this is the tiling, as most of it actually looks pretty good.
However, it also has many problems. It is a halfhack and the layout of the world is extremely similar to vanilla. There is TONS of suitless underwater; the first like 20 minutes is pretty much all underwater. Also, there are physics changes which feel really frustrating; your jump is much shorter, and you cannot IBJ. The world design has some big flaws, the worst one being where you have to go across the entire world after getting super missiles to get grapple and then go back across the world again so you can use the grapple to unlock a room that is like 3 rooms away from supers. That was frustrating. Also, some tiles are inconsistent whether they are solid or not which creates some moments where you might miss a required path, so watch out for that. Tourian was also completely vanilla which sucks.

However, the design of individual rooms was mostly not bad and it was fun to explore during the times where you had a sense of direction.
