For a hack made in less than a day, it's pretty good. And knowing the story behind it's creation is very heartwarming. A little more farming than I'd like, but it's really good for what it is.

One of the few good ZM hacks as of right now, and made in 24 hours to boot. I had a lot of fun when I played this. Exploration was fun but not frustrating, and has good sequence breaking iirc. Definitely recommended!

It's pretty good, with a unique aesthetic. I really enjoyed it! It's biggest strength is how open-ended it is.

A pretty decent hack in all regards. I'll start with the positives. The music was pretty good, and enjoyable throughout. The visuals were pretty nice as well. I liked having a new planet to explore, that had a great mix of nature and technology.

But as with all hacks, there's downsides. I'll start with my biggest gripe, the room sizes. A lot of the rooms seemed like they were large and obtuse for no reason other than "Because I can".

This wouldn't be too bad if it was limited to a few instances, but it's pretty much every room. It bloats the areas more than they need to be.

A lot of the rooms were large and hard to quickly navigate through, and this ended up making the shortcuts end up the only way I'd want to keep exploring the area. I don't think it's a good thing when I want to avoid traveling through rooms more than once in an exploration based hack.

Another thing is, it ended a lot sooner than I expected. It felt abrupt. Just walking then bam! Suddenly, final boss. The escape was also slightly disappointing.

All in all, a great Zero Mission hack with a few issues. 4/5, I'll be playing this again in the future.

It's a pretty great and enjoyable hack. A massive improvement on the old boss rush hack,

Certainly not the best hack out there, but pretty solid for (to my knowledge) a first attempt. The room design could use some work (a lot of tile errors/misuse and can be pretty blocky), and the map could use some work too. For a veteran difficulty hack, it's pretty easy too.

The most fun I had with the hack was traversing Norfair for the first time. The platforming was difficult and fun, and whenever I messed up it felt like it was my fault and not bad design. Going through the heat runs was pretty good too, but I'll admit I'm pretty sure I didn't get everything I was supposed yet to before I got into Norfair.

Overall, a decent hack, and I look forward to future hacks made by Spedimus.
