Quick Summary of the meaning of my SM hack ratings:
5 orbs: SM hacks within the 80% to 100% (90% ± 10%) range of perceived perfection; SM hacks for outstanding wholesome playing experiences and at most minor inconveniences.
4 orbs: SM hacks within the 60% to 80% (70% ± 10%) range of perceived perfection; Well done SM hacks with noticeable design problems.
3 orbs: SM hacks within the 40% to 60% (50% ± 10%) range of perceived perfection; Normal decent average SM hacks.
2 orbs: SM hacks within the 20% to 40% (30% ± 10%) range of perceived perfection; Overall messy, confusing, or punishing SM hacks with some upsides.
1 orb : SM hacks within the 00% to 20% (10% ± 10%) range of perceived perfection; Ruthlessly unplayable, broken, or barely from the original game changed SM hacks.

Judgement parameters summary:
° Creative ideas and features, polished design, how enjoyable and fun the hack can be, lack of hard to find or cryptic required game elements, the difficulty, and if the hack can be finished without major guides or tools.
° Note that the length of a SM hack will not necessarily contribute to my rating of the SM hack, since instead the averaged out experience over the whole hack will be taken into account to get a relative comparison between SM hacks.
° Besides this, lack of impactful changes from the original SM game also went into the evaluation of SM hacks (otherwise one may consider them among the 3 stars hacks) as follows: Ultimately, for my ratings I consider a situation in which an SM enthusiast that already has, knows about and is familiar with the original game and its prominent mechanics could only choose 1 new SM hack to play and thus would really want to make sure he/she will get a fresh and fantastic experience or journey out of his/her 1 choice.

The goal of all these SM hack ratings is so that rather new players have an overview of the whole spectrum of SM hacks and how to sort them in, in relation to each other, where SM hacks that are rated lower might still be enjoyable for more experienced players.

Finally, sometimes for SM hacks it can be relevant that they may be significantly more enjoyable from a player standpoint at which the player is well practiced and familiarized with Super Metroid's game mechanics in general, and that in particular some of the best SM hacks may not be the outright best first SM hack choices to play otherwise because of this, and for beginner SM hack players this typically steers the best first SM hack choices towards some of the SM hacks that I rated with 4 orbs instead of 5.

Rating for some hacks may be off by 1 Star, but arguably not more, and ratings are not attempted to be provided within the precision of ''half orbs''.

This is an amalgamation of Redesign and vanilla Super Metroid with permastucks, broken doors, and bad tiling all over the place.
It's a decent idea, but it's executed terribly. The physics are jarring, the map is completely broken if you leave the area and come back, progression is unclear, etc.
One good thing I have to say about this hack is it had icy X-Parasites as Phantoon's flames. That's it.
Oh, and you never get Gravity Suit. You have to trek through all of Maridia with Varia.
I was forced to stop near the end because you have to let the baby drain all of your health, and I opted to do a baby skip with slowdown. This is not possible to beat the game with. You need at least 5 minutes to beat it, and you only have 3.
If you have Crystal Flash ammo, or 3-4 reserves, it is possible. You just can't baby skip with it though because you'll ruin it.
A waste of 7 hours.
Did not finish.
Do not recommend.

Yeah, like Sapph said, avoid. While some of the little graphical changes are interesting, this is really just another one of those poorly-done "hard" hacks whose claim to fame is just tedium in progression. The landing site alone reeks of this.
