A while back Snarfblam gave me a Metroid rom he'd been working on and lost interest in. The rom was pretty much all there but some rooms were broken, some doors had no rooms to go into, and a few of the power ups seemed to be unreachable. Sometimes major sections of the map were completely missing.

I had worked on the rom for a while and forgot about it. Then I thought I uploaded it for some reason... Well now I have!

The Hack has one room that doubles in 2 areas. The led to the inspiration to create Inceptroid.

Incredible hack.
This hack had some very good palettes, a little bit of unusual exploration, but held up really well. It starts off very slowly, but the pace ramps up shortly after. Metroid + Saving means that you get Ice+Wave, saving/keeping your health, and a fully custom map. Crazy.
100% recommend.

While this hack isn't bad by any stretch, it definitely does feel like a half-finished hack that was handed off to somebody else. There is a decidedly noticeable drop in ambition and ideas as the game progresses. Brinstar and Norfair are quite good and well realized, Kraid's Lair is mostly good by feels half-baked aesthetically, and then Ridley's Lair and Tourian feel like minor rearrangements that only use screens from the vanilla game.

Still, nothing in this hack is really bad, and as someone who likes Nestroid I found this to be quite swell.

Be aware that a couple items are gated behind unmorph-jumping and unmorph-bomb-jumping-into-a-respawning-tile.
