Super Metroid Containment Chamber

Higly suggested to go through this hack even if you decide to look up every solutions. This can teach you many tricks and mechanic you might have not know.
Hit me up on twitter @LioranWaters if you stream it.

Check out my second puzzle hack aswell.

-This is a puzzle hack, You can not proceed without finishing the next puzzle,There is no hidden items and no hidden path.

-All the mechanic used are native to the original engine.

-If at any point you think you forgot something and need to go back you are misunderstanding the hack.

-The hack is not meant to kill you, Recharge stations and saves are plenty full.

-Even if you believe this hack is too technical for you, it is good to go through the hack, it will teach you new things about the Super Metroid engine.

-If you get stuck and don't know what to do look at the readme/hint file. It contains hints and video links to the solutions.

As an experienced player and someone with a pretty strong grasp of SM’s mechanics, this is one of the most fun hacks that I’ve ever played. Each room is a puzzle that requires outside-the-box thinking and/or a fairly high-level of both understanding and executing mechanics that wouldn’t normally be used in a playthrough or speedrun. It’s full of challenging and highly rewarding puzzles accompanied by a remixed soundtrack that enhances the feeling of experiencing something new.. If you’re well-versed in the game, this hack lets you utilize some of the deeper knowledge you’ve acquired along the way. If you’re a beginner, Containment Chamber is a great opportunity to explore some of the depth that SM has to offer that would otherwise be strictly novel in its nature. Either way, I would absolutely recommend this hack to anyone who has done any speedrunning or played around with some of the more advanced tech. Truly one of the best. 9.5/10

I really liked this hack. It has tons of tech and some really odd but good puzzles. If you are willing to learn new tech, this is the hack for you (and Contamination, but that's harder).

An interesting hack with a lot of really difficult puzzles. The difficulty level is Expert as there many of the puzzles require mastery of advanced techniques not known to most players. Some of the puzzles are gratifying to figure out, and some are rather frustrating head-scratchers. It's a well-built hack that thankfully is quite forgiving if you mess up. It's really good for helping you learn advanced techniques if that's what you're into, otherwise, you won't get half of these puzzles. If you already know the techniques, you will have a blast. It's not for everyone, but it's a good hack nonetheless.

Didn't manage to execute on the final puzzle, but learned a lot along the way. Had to use hint file solution videos often, which are a very useful/excellent feature.

This and Contamination are well worth it if you want to learn some new tricks and techniques. Couldn't do the execution on the final puzzle though and had to cheat myself blue suit. That one felt harder than anything even in Contamination execution-wise.

A must-play. There are many videos showing solutions if you get stuck. Your eyes will be open to several new techniques after experiencing this.

Este hack ya lo había jugado y me gustó la primera vez y la segunda vez que lo jugué, definitivamente no es un hack que todos pueden jugar, el último puzzle lo resolví diferente hice un doble "short charge" el primero para guardarlo y el segundo para destruir sólo los primeros bloques de speed booster.

Definitivamente tiene un diseño de nivel impecable y la música es de otros juegos de Metroid, lo recomiendo.

Definitely learned some new things when playing this. If you're looking for tricks techniques, this one and its sequel will certainly show you them.

Great stuff. This helped me finally learn how to execute temp bluesuit transition into springball jumps. Overall the puzzles seemed more consistent and fun to execute compared to Contamination, which was good too, but I liked this one more. Thanks for the hack.

This was a nice Hack! Though it can be very very hard if you are beginner. I strongly recommend to use the "Read Me" (Hint List), which you can get on the download page. Without it this would have been extremely tedious, if you did not know the trix from before. I also used save states, to make things speed up more, which I would recommend for this Hack, I don't see any point in not doing so. But the hack is good, it teached me some new trix, I give it 4/5.

Useful but frustrating.

Recommended if you are somewhat patient and don't mind having to hunt for the right pixel. The puzzles that applied tech I knew beforehand tended to be more fun but the actual learning tended to be a slog.
