The Main Site Release (Version 1.1) is finally here! Issues brought up by playtesters have been resolved, and this version is also more polished. I am proud to present this version of my first hack to you all!

If you have any feedback/bugs/permastucks, etc, I'd be glad to hear them! The main purpose of me making this hack in the first place, after all, was to get feedback.

(Review is for contest version)
For Nodever's first hack, this is really well done. It has that classic "vanilla" feel that a lot of older hacks have, like stardust, for example. You can tell he started with crateria first and then moved on to brinstar, as his level design improved up to that point. Items are given at a nice rate, making the player never feel under-equipped. It's a decent size for a contest entry, and was rather fun to play through. The boss of the hack is quite amusing as well. I recommend at least one playthrough. I am eager to see what nodever does in the future.

So aside of the one room where when you use X-ray the game freezes it is well made as a first hack it was a fun and short hack to play through.
I'm looking foward to other hacks he might release.

Great hack. Fall Brinstar looks beautiful.

Fun short hack. I probably like this more than blue plague hack.
My only gripes are that it had too many items for the map size and not enough power bomb drops. Some scroll triggers were wonky too.

It's a fun little hack with an amusing Phantoon. Ends abruptly, I should have known to save before the boss because I hadn't I couldn't collect more items since I hadn't saved anywhere.
