This was a hack I felt like making to both practice and test my overall design skills. I challenged myself to try and making something short and fun while limited to a 10x10 minimap space. The minty theme put on top is just for some extra fun. This hack is, as said, very short and even within that shortness has a couple intentional sequence breaks. It isn't anything wildly impressive, but I hope you enjoy this short, compact hack!

Very good short hack.

The amount of possible routes is really nice.
The size of the map being 10x10 makes item search nice and fluent. No need for random bombing.
First I thought Ridley would be a tough fight witht the equipment I got but It seems like he got nerfed quite a bit. So the difficulty should be doable for Vanilla players and easy for Advanced players.
Hard mode is actually hard

If you have about 30 to 60 minutes to spare definetly try this.

I rarely play Zero Mission but this was a very fun hack. I enjoyed it a lot.
Loved how there was a nice amount of secrets despite the map being fairly small.

5 orbs. I have no complaints.

Nice hack. Good layouts, stuff was fun to find. Only complaints I suppose were a few meh room designs and ugly-ish palettes.

Ridley on Menthol hurts.

I just completed Mintroid, I thought it was a pretty good hack, although ZM blue oddity during transitons, and as Alexman25 said above, some ugly palettes, but good job nevertheless.

Muy buen truco, se los recomiendo si quieren pasar unos 30 o 60 minutos entretenidos, algunos jefes pueden llegar a ser muy tediosos pero supongo que es parte del desafío, les recomiendo poner el modo difícil o mejor dicho "Mentol" si quieren un desafío más grande, en cuanto el diseño debo admitir que me encanto, al igual que su temática, para ser un mapa 10x10 esta muy entretenido, yo lo llamo diversión comprimida, mi única queja seria el final, es simplemente que los créditos aparecen de golpe, hubiera deseado ver aunque sea una escena, pero de ahi todo lo demas esta bueno.

Les recomiendo Mintroid, y felicidades a su creador Golden Warrior, te quedo bueno el Hack!

No completion stats.
Definitely a good hack. I really liked the theming of it, nice gameplay, intuitive and fun. What else do you want? Recommend

Great hack! It was very clear where to go and what to do. Theming was fun and it wasn't too difficult either. 10/10

This hack is the top Zero Mission Quick Play for a reason. I'll say as much as I can without spoiling it for you.
The theming in this hack has the life and personality that all fan-made projects should have. It is lighthearted and humorous--perfect for such short, sweet hack. It even comes with a surprise on the map screen. Collect items. That's all I'll say. It's the best way to get the most out of this hack. Also, the mint tint? Genius. What's the one thing Metroid could use more of? Bright, cool colors (as opposed to its usual dark theme and warm colors). Hit the nail on the head with this one. The enemies are all easy and that includes the bosses (except Ridley. Ridley was average once you have about 20 missiles.) Recommend playing on Menthol.
Best short Zero Mission hack. Takes less than half an hour. Wonderful.

Nice little minihack. Quite polished.

There are a good number of different routing options, one of which involves doing a really, really early hell run. I, uh, chose to do that for my first playthrough, and without spoiling anything I'll just say that I felt a bit stupid for doing it.
