Hi all
This is my 1st hack , I took the best hack I was able to find and did one big redirect on it, as per the name, it’s a full game, it’s easy, and I call it Exploration hack.

I have removed things and added things and done a big list of redirects, you may just get lost, but it’s all very easy to play, I can get it done within 2 hours, but you will not do that on your 1st go, even if you played Super Metroid many times

If you get stuck look for hidden routes, there is always a clue in most cases.

(This hack as now been updated, please report any bugs and the hack will be 100% updated, unlike many)

UPDATE: Ok, new ver out with an easy to find brinstar path look for 1.1 download

Update 2: This fixes the bad room in Maridia and spore spawn taking 5sec to kill download 1.2

Ok new ver 1.3 out after I noted a full play video on twitch, I noted and they noted some bugs, like map dot items that where not there, and a room he had to reset the game on, this as now all been fixed.

New ver out 1.4 1 bug removed.

New ver out 1.5 more bugs fixed

Ok new ver 1.6 is out with some room changes

Please post any feed back

Review written for version 1.2

This is a decent half hack of project base. That being so, it is harder to tell exactly what was made by the hack maker, and what was originally in project base. Either way, this hack, despite moving the items around, feels way to vanilla. Most rooms flow in almost the same way, and a lot aren't even changed at all. The original rooms, for the most part, are pretty good though.

The other main problem with the hack is the way some of the redirection is implemented. In my own playthrough, I wasn't really redirected by not having the necessary upgrades to proceed, but it was by arbitrary blockages. Locked doors, one-way passages, solid tiles that cut rooms in half requiring you to take a massive loop to get to the other side, these are the main culprits, but they are all really frustrating.

Overall, a nice first hack, but it has a lot of flaws that need to be sanded down. There isn't that much about it that makes it stand out either. Not recommended to those who do not like half-hacks, and somewhat recommendable to someone who just wants to play a hack.

This hack has crumble grapple blocks up the ass.
Maridia was extremely dumb as there were crumble blocks everywhere I went, the way to plasma was really dumb to figure out, etc.
I've seen better vanilla halfhacks.
