Not a good hack.
It's vanilla with a ton of rooms removed, and a few doors lead you out of bounds so you're stuck and forced to Up+A.
Tourian can be skipped (and so can everything else tbh), Kraid and Ridley both require Wave Beam to fight them so if you decide to go for 100% be sure to get that before you descend.
Items are sprawled all over the place so there is no difficulty/exploration aspect, it just waters down the original game.
I recommend OG NEStroid over this. That's unusual.

Not the last hack of its kind.

Just like "Metroid Mother Visibility Rearranged and Compactified" this over-simplifies the game and trivializes the exploration and discovery. Items are strewn along your path, and many rooms were just removed. To make matters worse, this hack flattens most of the existing rooms, reducing the variety and interest of the game even further. Worse yet, enemies are clumped together, often in groups of 6, so lag is even more of an issue here than it was in the original (since it's harder to get them cycling through enemy slots between screens).

Wave Beam is required to beat the bosses, but the bosses aren't required to access Tourian, and beating Mother Brain isn't even required to beat the game. All you actually need is just 10 missiles, really.

Two doors in Tourian and one door in Norfair lead you out of bounds.
