In this hack, Samus Aran finds herself on the surface of a ruined chozo planet. While it first, it appears there are no signs of life, upon entering the planet's depths...

This is a very short hack that i actually had no plans on releasing. This is also my first actual hack, so don't expect a masterpiece.

What to expect:
~Dark spooky atmosphere
~Suitless Underwater (nothing too crazy)
~Pretty cryptic secrets
~Very dark rooms

A great little first hack. Very small, very focused, and dark. Enough little pathways to keep it interesting for the brief period you'll be playing it. It's definitely short, and does manage to use suitless underwater too much, but it's a great little play for the most part otherwise. For those making their first hack, doing a small project like this would be a great way to start.

Not bad at all. A tad too dark for my liking, but enjoyable nonetheless. Keep it up!

A nice, small hack that has a neat atmosphere. It is a bit too dark, but I like the eerie feel it gives to all of the rooms. My main thought going through this hack was: "Thank you for balancing all the enemies to the abilities Samus has!" It is pretty well built and is fun to play; it could use a bit more polish, but it doesn't detract from the whole hack that much. Give this one a try!

No completion stats.
At first I wasnt ready to play such a dark hack, and it seemed a bit cryptic, but I have played this game multiple times just because of that, I grew to like eerie darkness of the game, and actually seemed like a more realistic mission just because of that. would play multiple times

The atmosphere was interesting, and the item placement allowed for some skipping (looking at you spring ball). Maybe overused Metroids, since I only found 1 energy tank, and getting attacked by one killed me pretty quickly. The compact map offered several ways of approaching rooms, which was good and bad, mostly during the escape sequence. Good first hack!

took about 2h40m real time.
Hack is confusing as hell. Map station shows a section that is seemingly inaccessible. Has some seemingly broken doors, a potential crash in varia room and slope stucks. Has respawning pb blocks with low pb ammo.

On the other hand, it looks nice from what little you can actually see. Enemy damages/health have been tweaked(except seemingly drain damages) so it's not attempting to be hard.

Biggest problem with the hack is hunting for shot/bomb blocks when you can barely see, which given the name of the hack is intended, but that doesn't make it any fun.

Pretty good. Short, and dark as dicks (says so on the tin), but highly atmospheric and aesthetic. Look out for ceiling entrances, I was confused in the first underwater area for a while trying to find the way forward. Ended up entering (and leaving) BT's little corridor via glitch-gating because I didn't find missiles or charge at first (thanks to above point). It also really annoyed me that Metroids took 2 supers a piece but you don't actually have to kill a single one to progress. Just be sure to realize that that super dark door next to the Rinka spawner is actually a MISSILE DOOR instead of farming the Rinka for supers only to realize you didn't have to kill any Metroids to move on.

It's alright, bit too dark for my tastes. Atmosphere is good but a little tedious/confusing to find where to go, as well as encountering a crash in BT's room that I was somehow able to get around by spamming pauses. All in all, pulls the atmosphere off well but is a little frustrating to go through.
