Super Metroid Arcade : Endless mode by Lioran, Tewtal [SM Quick Play], rated by Croakomire on Dec 11, 2018 (Star Star Star Star Star )

Amazing hack, totally nails the idea of an old arcade cabinet. It's a hack to be enjoyed in segments, when you're bored or something, I never find it to get boring, the achievements keep it refreshing, time attack keeps you on your feet, and the whole thing keeps your reactions sharp. I tend to use this as practice before speedruns now as all the rooms help me prepare for the unexpected.
Lots of replay ability, tons of fun, great music, overall a great time, as I am a sucker for old arcade games, this hack gets a perfect score... minus .001% because BT showing up first room 50% of the time is rather infuriating

Amazing and speedrunnable hack, what else would I expect from a Metaquarius work. Routing goes every which way, perfect for replayability and racing.
Fun, Quick, Looks polished, Some rooms may induce epileptic attacks, All the things to make a worthwhile hack in my opinion, play this, won't regret it....
... Especially...

This hack is extremely well put together with the great mix of fast paced, fun, organized, and just the right amount of challenge. I love the physics changes, especially the back flip and keeping your momentum. keep up the great work. oh, and I can't forget, I love the color choices.

Fun? weird? strange? oddball? entertaining? if you chose any of these words you'd be correct. Oxide is an interesting hack with plenty of surprises. Finding kraid was a nightmare, but other than that, this hack does it's best to be as wacky as it can be.

Fun stuff, the lack of saves increases my liking for it only because of the nature of the hack, remember the route or die trying, it's a game of trial and error. There are a few bugs I ran into such as going to "grapple heaven" when entering a door and all the screens had a heart attack, other than that, solid hack.

Not a bad quick hack, reminds me of an old arcade machine. Bored? just slot in your quarter and have a go at it.
Fun to play when you're out of things to do or maybe want a quick speedrun. The design is neat and new, overall not too shabby
Good Fun Times by BFrobber [SM Challenge], rated by Croakomire on Feb 27, 2018 (Star Star Star Star Star )

This hack does an amazing job at being challenging but not that bad at the same time. It also does an extremely great job at being short, fun, and speedrun-able. While most people will probably say something along the lines of "AHHH MY RETINAS ARE BURNING! HELP!" I'll be saying "these colors are enlightening me to the 9th dimension." ~ Good © Fun ® Times™ ~ is truly a masterpiece of a short hack, I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fast challenge. I think it's safe to say that BFrobber is a very good maker of short hacks, I can only foresee good content coming from him in the future. By the way, suitless underwater for life, but not enough Oums©

For a halfhack this is quite well done, for a first hack this is quite well done, throw those two factors together and you get a very well done creation, although, that doesn't keep it safe from critiquing. This hack does a great job of throwing some random but fun things at the player, the most noticeable being the bosses and mini-bosses, crocomire for example throws a massive curve ball at the player, The save stations are also very unexpected. The design choice is nice in a lot of late/mid game rooms, but the beginning just seems like either nothing was changed or a cluttered mess. Next up, I think the amount of trolling performed on the player is executed close to masterfully, The amount of speedboost blocks might get a little excessive, but it's a great build up for when you finally get speedbooster, you feel like you can go anywhere. Not to mention that if you mess certain tricks up, there is some backtracking, but they're done at just the right lengths that won't make a player go insane if they choose to try. Lastly, the skills needed to beat this do exactly what the description says, you don't need any fancy tricks to beat it, but if you want to be a completionist, the tricks make it just that much harder to go fast. But that also comes with a price, even regular players might find it hard to go fast, there's a little too much searching for items just to have them be useless minors, not too much to make the hack un-enjoyable, but still. All in all for the factors this hack was created with, it's a decent halfhack that does a wonderful job showing the progression of a hacker, with a few glitches and flaws here and there, I'd highly recommend it.
So Little Items by MetroidMst [SM Exploration], rated by Croakomire on Aug 07, 2017 (Star Star Star Star Star )

Of all the So Little hacks, I think SLI is a great balance between being fast, well polished, playable, and not too annoying for it's own good. (looking at you SLG, Monstool Mash) the custom music makes the hack even better, especially the tetris theme. The only thing making my rating stay at a 4 is that the grapple sections are all skip-able with bombs. Finally, I have to agree with Mst, "you can't have a good game without lag."
