This is a hack for Metroid. It improves the challenge level of the game considerably and alters the location of items and monsters. It also alters the layout of several areas in the game.

Altered the layout right at the beginning a lot. Didn't really know where I was going but it worked out in the end. Got slightly early Varia, cool that a specific item was right at the beginning.
Kraid's lair was extremely confusing, but I managed to get through it. I fought Kraid with 1 e-tank and varia (had to use a savestate here)and managed it after 3-4 tries. Really difficult.
I skipped Norfair/Ridley's lair entirely and went to Tourian, nothing was changed there.
You get almost NO e-tanks early game, so getting around is really obnoxious. I only got one total, so that really sucked. 1 tank MB is not fun at all.

This is a middling hack that keeps the skeleton of the original game's map. I'm struggle to think of any interesting ideas it has (other than putting ice at long beam). It was okay to play, but I got bored towards the end.

Energy tanks are hard to come by, and I only found two by the end. Looking at the game in Editroid, I have a feeling something regarding their spawning is bugged, because at least two of them didn't spawn for me, even though I passed right by them.

In Norfair there is an energy tank at the old screw attack location that I did manage to get. However, I had to wall-crawl to get to it because the author changed what column the hole in the floor was on in the room before it, rendering it inaccessible by normal means. Anyhow, when I left that energy tank room the scrolling got messed up because the author accidentally used a horizontal-horizontal door tiles. I had to do some really stupid door-crawling and OoB shenanigans to get scrolling back to normal. That was both the highlight and lowlight of the hack to me.

BTW, if you ever play this, there's a missile tank at the very bottom of Kraid that respawns when you die. It's easy to get to, and I wouldn't be surprised if other items also have that property (this was a common occurrence in old Metroid 1 hacks that changed item locations).

Looking forward to "METOOID REMX II" coming soon.
