Super Metroid Kaizo was a hack originally made by Green Samus back in 2010. The hack was totally forgotten about until it resurfaced in 2014. The hack claims to be unfair and excessively difficult and the creator wishing he could see us when we witness the rooms he created. Unfortunately that never happened because nobody probably made it past the landing till 2014 due to the fact that after morphball the hack just suddenly becomes TAS only hack.

Even if you were to use save state only you would have no chance at finishing the hack. What you need to do to finish to progress sometimes is so obscure, I thought multiple times that I reached the end and that the hack was unfinished even while looking through the editor. It's sad because there is a lot of cool stuff in this hack, beleive it or not, it is not only a spike hack. in a 4-hour long pseudo-TAS the spike section probably only take 20-30 minutes of that.

This is where this hack comes in, this is basically a mod of a mod. This hack modifies the original in a way that makes it feasible to be done without save state at all. Save Stations were added, rooms were changed in a way that they retain their original solution to be completed unless the original solution was infinite diagonal bomb jump such as the top of wreckship (see included picture).

Although the skill level required to finish this edit is still through the roof, this might be the hardest "Possible" hack out there. So don't feel bad if you have to use save state or even slow motion if your muscle memories are not sharped like those of the top players. The hack does feel more like a real kaizo the way it is now. The previous one was not a true kaizo at all.

With that said if you wish to try this out and you are like me, you earned mad skills over the years and don't feel like searching around forever for where to go next, you just want to put your mad skills to the test. I included a spoiler text file that tells you where to go next.

This hack is more than challenging. Quick respawn makes playing easier but with how many deaths you will experience, save states are needed to make the experience tolerable. Boss battles were easier than expected for a "kaizo" hack.
Plenty of savestates were used.

No animals to be saved (in an older version of this hack).

Finished, savestateless.
Excellent challenge hack. This is more than just a spike hack, even though that's what the screenshots show. Exploration is very open but you don't actually have many places to go, it's very linear except for a few unintended sequence breaks. This hack excels at what it goes for, and I'm so glad that I played this. It was amazing. A quick note, no e-tanks in this hack. All ammo you can get is required. And if you want to make it a little easier on yourself, there's the spoiler log. I used it because it's nearly impossible to figure out where to go on your own for some of the hack, and ptoil made a map that marks all the missile locations, here: I also used that. Thanks to Lioran for fixing this hack up and making it fun!
Do not recommend (without savestates).
