Final game title: Metroid - Incursion

100% Complete - Snarfblams Metroid Plus improvements where successfully applied to this MOD

I have included 2 .IPS files, one with Snarfblams Metroid Plus improvements and one with the standard
weapons and no mini map. I found that the wave+ice made the final area fairly easy. If you want more
of a challenge I would say play through with the normal version first then with the PLUS features second.

Metroid_Incursion.IPS = Standard Weapons and Original Gameplay
Metroid_Incursion_Plus.IPS = Added pause mini map, Wavy Ice weapon, Save game feature

As far as NEStroid hacks go, this is one of the best out there. It takes NEStroid, and does some very interesting things with it via some trickery, creating an interesting world to explore. The one issue, or non-issue, is that it is pretty linear overall. Every area has a set path for the most part. Other than that complaint though, there isn't much to downgrade this hack over.

I don't play many M1 hacks, but this caught my attention when it came out. The graphics are superb, areas feel distinct from each other, and the metroid plus additions went a long way to making navigation not feel like a chore. The only complaints I have are the enemy damage, which I felt was a bit too much in some places (notably ridely's hideout), and the fact that the graphics and level design lend themselves to a game that has slope detection. Since metroid 1 does not, it sometimes felt stop-and-start and took away from the value of the artwork as it felt like it was there to look pretty, not to be traversed.
All in all this is easily the best M1 hack out there in my opinion, and unless you really hate the physics and gameplay of the original, you owe it to yourself to give this a try.

Prior to the release of Rogue Dawn, this was probably the best Metroid 1 hack to exist. The game creates a really unique world through a lot of NES witchcraft and graphical deliciousness, with plenty of quality of life features (saving!) that make this hack really stand out. Despite hating the original Metroid, I played this one to completion. For that alone I'd recommend it.

Not the best Nestroid hack, but definitely the best one since Metroid X back in 1999.
