EJRTQ Colorization v1.3
By EJR Tairne and Justin Olbrantz (Quantam)

EJRTQ converts Metroid II to full color. This mod combines the art of the beautiful but buggy EJRT colorization 1.2 with entirely rewritten code, fixing bugs and crashes, allowing it to run on most emulators, and adding additional graphical improvements.

This hack does for Metroid 2 what Metroid + Saving does for Metroid 1. It is a whole new experience to play this game in full color, and this hack is able to completely replace the original. If you want to play Metroid 2, play this instead.

made an account just to say that this does actually work on real original hardware. tested it on my Gameboy color & ags101 advance with an everdive and it really makes the game playable. figured itd be useless to test on my og Gameboy or pocket seeing as its monochrome and all.

Solid color hack! Breathes life into the game. My first playthrough, and it definitely enhanced it.

It's still M2, but the best version of classic M2

Metroid 2 in colour is a really nice improvement.

This hack made me like Metroid 2 more than NEStroid. There's no better way to play the original Metroid 2 than with this patch, at least for now. You won't believe how much better this game is with a touch of color. There may still not be a map, but now that you can better establish landmarks it's not nearly as awful to navigate SR388. This hack is even compatible with real hardware (GBC and onward I think)

Way MUCH better than other past colorization hacks for M2.
Also it really resembles the original nes metroid bringing back lots of nostalgia.
I highly recommend this for newer generation of gamers.

I honestly believe this is a better colorization than the one done for super mario land 2. In fact, I might fully play this hack instead of AM2R.

edit: I just realized this has no map. In that case, I'm playing AM2R instead... and deducting an orb.

I have beaten Metroid 2 several times in my free time at school with this color patch.
The colors look very good. I think some background tiles are too dark making the space jumping timer too hard. Its also very samey (as is Metroid 2) but thats due to the decision of only using one global palette. Different colors for different areas would have been neat.

finally played M2 for the first time (not counting AM2R). really enjoyed the original experience.

while a map would be nice, its not the intent of the hack, thus i dont think it makes any sense whatsoever to take an orb away. the hack accomplished exactly what it intended to do, and incredibly well.

I know Metroid II is supposed to be in black & white but I actually like this version better than the OG M2.. the colors make the game look so much better and the colors are beautiful too, especially the colors used for Varia but other than that, not much is different since it's just a color patch for Metroid II

Savestates used.

I beat this hack a little over a year ago; since it was strictly a recolor I chose to experience Metroid 2 for the first time using this patch. Far as I am concerned this is the definitive way to enjoy the original game.

Metroid 2 has some beautiful sprite work. This patch takes a very well-crafted gameboy game and transforms it into a long-lost NES game.

I recommed either using GBC or CRT shaders if you are playing this on the Gambatte core in Retroarch.
