So Little Items (SLI) was made for the Zebes Winter Solstice contest on Metroid Construction. The goal was to make a winter themed hack that was based on 3 “special” items. These did not include Missiles, Super Missiles, Power Bombs, or other items that the player may start out with. The items used for SLI are:

Grapple Beam
Ice Beam
Boost Ball

Hack also includes numerous tweaks to the game engine, such as the removal of walljumping, and includes custom music.

Hack is relatively small and also very challenging.

SLI continues the tradition of So Little hacks trolling the shit out of the player, but in a different way this time around. It's less about making you hopelessly confused, and more about giving you moderately difficult tasks to complete with large consequences for failure. Specifically, there's some tricky grapple sections, and a particular boss that will ANNIHILATE you if you're underprepared (and being properly prepared involves finding some secret items). Also, hope you like rinka lag.

The custom music is nice, and the hack seems very well polished. If you know what you're getting into, this can be an entertaining playthrough. Probably the best of the SL* series to date.

Out of the two SL hacks I've played (SLI and SLC) this one is my favourite. Despite having to save state at certain points (grapple), I enjoyed the challenge.

The bits that stop me giving this a 5/5 are the rinka lag and the grapple sections being a bit too punishing for my liking.

Of all the So Little hacks, I think SLI is a great balance between being fast, well polished, playable, and not too annoying for it's own good. (looking at you SLG, Monstool Mash) the custom music makes the hack even better, especially the tetris theme. The only thing making my rating stay at a 4 is that the grapple sections are all skip-able with bombs. Finally, I have to agree with Mst, "you can't have a good game without lag."
