Description
On a whim because it's squishy's birthday, I'm releasing a demo version of this hack.

There are no trailers for it, unless you want to count that weird Please Check Your Sanity video.

This is as much of a demo release as it is a mass public test-play, so please do get back to me at some point if you have any thoughts or constructive criticism to offer. Additionally, I do permit LPs of this demo (EDIT: If you do an LP, please don't use tools. The hack isn't that big, and I give you plenty of Save Stations.).

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''.

This was a delightful hack to play through! The level design was really nice in some parts, the speed at which you gain bluesuit was very good, progression was nice, custom suit colors and hud, etc.
I definitely recommend trying this out if you have an hour to spare! You won't regret it!
Sadly, no ending though.
time is rta

Este hack es muy bueno, me gusta cómo se ve gráficamente y que constantemente realiza cambios en las mecánicas y en los enemigos. Sólo le puse cuatro Orbs porque no está completo, igual creo que vale mucho la pena jugarlo... Y la contraseña se encuentra en el primer archivo zip...

This is lowkey an insanely good hack and I'm sad it sits at 3.5 stars only because some dude couldn't read the readme. Loved the speedbooster new physics, loved the energy replenish by holding charge beam and easy IBJ but losing health with each bomb is genius so you need to think well when you want to try IBJ'ing or in general block searching. Truly a crazy good mod that unfortunately never saw the light of completion. Really wish it had preview images cuz the lack of info on it made me not play it for a long while. Glad I took the dove.

Note: Croc was fun but challenging, really neat finale
