It was and is now at its core a challenge hack, a game to fire up and hone your skills.
Secondly it tells a story, locate all 5 Chozodian Lores to complete the mystery behind Planet Uviol.

This is indeed a challenge hack and savestates are probably needed for some parts. Tons of beautiful art is on display in this masterpiece. Heat runs, interesting item progression, difficult puzzles, a pretty big world, and much more. If you consider yourself a good player, you should consider checking out this hack as it'll teach you some stuff.
Super short charge is necessary.

A great hack that is challenging without the need of mindlessly putting spikes anywhere.

I usually prefer easier hacks or at most Z-Factor and Super Zero Mission difficulty (which are difficult in their own way but don't require advanced techs) so my knowledge about advanced techniques was limited. I only knew how to perform IBJ, Mockball and short charging until recently when I played Containment Chamber and Contamination prior to this and learned some more different tricks. This hack even further improved my skills as a player thanks to difficult but fair challenges.

Would have given 5 Orbs but there were a few moments where I absolutely didn't know where to go. Draygon and especially Space Jump were hard to find in particular.
That said, I'm not *that* good at the game so finishing this was very satisfying.

No completion stats.
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.

Damn, that was a good game. Out of game time was probably like 30 hours.
Pretty sure I can nail the water rising spike room now.

Thankz for the hack!!
