Pretty good, if you don't mind spending the time shooting Space Pirates repeatedly with separate beams. (As in, completely separate - Ice, Wave, Spazer, etc. alone. Configured the normal way through the pause screen.) Fairly solid work otherwise.

Fun little hack. Biggest issues include switching off beams to fight single beam vulvernable pirates and the lack of a map.

Quick Summary of the meaning of my SM hack ratings:
5 orbs: SM hacks within the 80% to 100% (90% ± 10%) range of perceived perfection; SM hacks for outstanding wholesome playing experiences and at most minor inconveniences.
4 orbs: SM hacks within the 60% to 80% (70% ± 10%) range of perceived perfection; Well done SM hacks with noticeable design problems.
3 orbs: SM hacks within the 40% to 60% (50% ± 10%) range of perceived perfection; Normal decent average SM hacks.
2 orbs: SM hacks within the 20% to 40% (30% ± 10%) range of perceived perfection; Overall messy, confusing, or punishing SM hacks with some upsides.
1 orb : SM hacks within the 00% to 20% (10% ± 10%) range of perceived perfection; Ruthlessly unplayable, broken, or barely from the original game changed SM hacks.

Judgement parameters summary:
° Creative ideas and features, polished design, how enjoyable and fun the hack can be, lack of hard to find or cryptic required game elements, the difficulty, and if the hack can be finished without major guides or tools.
° Note that the length of a SM hack will not necessarily contribute to my rating of the SM hack, since instead the averaged out experience over the whole hack will be taken into account to get a relative comparison between SM hacks.
° Besides this, lack of impactful changes from the original SM game also went into the evaluation of SM hacks (otherwise one may consider them among the 3 stars hacks) as follows: Ultimately, for my ratings I consider a situation in which an SM enthusiast that already has, knows about and is familiar with the original game and its prominent mechanics could only choose 1 new SM hack to play and thus would really want to make sure he/she will get a fresh and fantastic experience or journey out of his/her 1 choice.

The goal of all these SM hack ratings is so that rather new players have an overview of the whole spectrum of SM hacks and how to sort them in, in relation to each other, where SM hacks that are rated lower might still be enjoyable for more experienced players.

Finally, sometimes for SM hacks it can be relevant that they may be significantly more enjoyable from a player standpoint at which the player is well practiced and familiarized with Super Metroid's game mechanics in general, and that in particular some of the best SM hacks may not be the outright best first SM hack choices to play otherwise because of this, and for beginner SM hack players this typically steers the best first SM hack choices towards some of the SM hacks that I rated with 4 orbs instead of 5.

Rating for some hacks may be off by 1 Star, but arguably not more, and ratings are not attempted to be provided within the precision of ''half orbs''.

Somewhat decent hack. It can be played without save state usage. But it's a bit dated; the Space Pirates are a bit annoying to fight, no map, the second part of the Hell's Run (after the very early Ridley fight) is very tough, and other annoyances. Also, there is a lack of graphics variety in the rooms.

Decent for a hack this old, but tonns of annoyances, especially early on.

It's a strong 3 orbs but numerous soft locks, some annoying enemies/bosses, and no map hold it back. For it's size the lack of map isn't that big a deal but it's certainly an issue. I never did find Spazer or Plasma and I think I may of sequence broke into Maridia by using a damage boost and shinespark, but I thought it was just a broken reskin of the ice+speed shaft. I'm guessing I may of went an unintended route given my low collection percent, I know there was an area in Norfair I just never found access too. Overall though it was a neat mix up and had it's own charm. It's worth a play but it stands well back of the best hacks on here. Thanks to all who helped.

Wow, this is a complete mess. Hell, even the description for this mod is just a bunch of excuses for why it's so bad. Now I've seen worse but this is definitely similar to other mods I have rated 1/5. I guess this is to be expected from a mod with a name similar to revolution X, the worst SNES game ever made.

could use some work but other than that, it's an ok hack.. 5/10 would recommend but read description first because those skills are required
