Really good. I loved the new minibosses and how the game was more challenging without going into kaizo and spike retardation!

The exploration was fun and items are hidden in pretty clever spots. There isn't any difficulty at all except inside the murder ship, and that was my favorite part of the hack. There are many grey doors that require cleared rooms, and killing weak enemies that do 5 damage over and over again to progress isn't very fun.
Project Base 0.7.3 by begrimed [SM Improvement], rated by croissant bug on May 21, 2020 (Star Star Star Star Star )

Beautiful graphics but the gameplay needs some work. Beams and missiles fire extremely fast removing any difficulty, and bosses are also very weak usually dying in seconds. I also don't like how enemy projectiles can be destroyed for free health, because that just makes an already easy difficulty level into baby mode. I hope that a new harder version of Project Base with more config patches will come in the future.

This hack was better than the real ZM until the space pirate ship and chozodia, then it turned kaizo. Just quit after beating mother brain. It's not worth it.

Crazy graphics and music that overloaded my senses in a good way. I couldn't figure out what to do once reaching the medusa heads and quit soon after.

Another hack that started out great but became a ridiculously difficult tool assistance required save state fest. Many instances of super short charge and mock/speed ball being required to reach items, and that's awful. Crocomire is a late game boss but a first time player will not know, so they may try to fight him and die over and over again, so Croco's room should have had a yellow hatch instead of green IMO. I never could find 100% items and since there is no item % display in the game, I couldn't tell how much I had found unless I sat through the end credits which sucks ass. I beat the "final" boss with about 90% items and was stumped as to where to find all 100%, so I just used SMILE test room to reach Tourian. Gold Torizo was cool but it's not worth it at all. There was some really neat use of transparencies and colors in this hack.

I used smile to remove a wall so I could get the first energy tank for the required heat run. I caved and used states during the run because it basically requires tool assistance otherwise, and it was still horrible. That's as far as a I played.
