The route has been changed, and with it, the order of items you collect.
Boss Battles have been reversed, that means Ridley's first!
Enemy and Boss healths have been modified as well.
RBO CAPABLE! If you loved the original RBO, then you'll like this one too! With Kraid first though, you'll need lots of skill!

-Wall jumping is a MUST!
-A general knowledge of the original layout
-Speed Booster OR infinate bomb jump... you'll know when;)

-This game is NOT for beginners.
-You will NEED to know the layout of the original game otherwise you WILL get annoyed.
-A clever route doesn't neccesary mean its hard to do. Think outside the box!
-Escaping Norfair will suck without 4 energy tanks. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!

Animals saved.

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''.

Excellent hack.
Maintain the original physics, changed the original route so players don't get bored, changed the item collection. Anyways, i recommend, everybody should try this hack.

Vanilla rooms with slight tweaks to accomodate new item progression(s).
Bonus points for tweaked enemies, reduced points moving vanilla items hidden in "random" tiles to different seemingly random spots. Boss tweaks were a mixed bag.

KPRD. Pretty fun map for what it intended to be. It feels more like a randomizer than a rom hack.
