  • Top Hacks 2009: Most Creative Gameplay
AngryFireChozo is a hack I started April 2nd as an outlet for level design, and with the accidental creation of a glitch in the physics system. I originally intended it to be a few room hack, but I just never quit building it. After about a week, I decided to make it to be quite a nice size for a 'minihack', and started on a building spree.

As it was built in such a rushed manner, I didn't have much time to test it completely, so there may be game-breaking sequence breaks or other flaws that I haven't discovered. I believe I went over every roomstate for problems that way, but it's hardly recieved a proper beta-testing. I'll do my best to fix any major issues as they come up.

Being rough and unpolished, it's difficult, especially in the exploration department. A large part of the world is hidden, and the enemies themselves are tough (with the big boss being insane). You also will have to figure out several things involving the physics, and until you learn how to work them, things will seem slow.

Unless I miscounted, 100% is the max attainable. It can be completed with far less, but aforementioned big boss will probably trash you if you try to run through with as little item collection as possible.

No saves except the ship, so I'm afraid you'll have to use savestates.

Have fun!

The floaty mechanics this hack has makes it one of the most annoying hacks out there. Don't get me wrong, it's still a pretty good hack nonetheless.

Animals saved.

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''.

The map design of this hack is lovely, but physics is a real turn off. Would love to play this hack with traditional physics.

This hack is trash, it has graphical issues, just at the beginning, the ball doesn't see & those issues continue, you can see Samus running in the air... & of course, physics are shit!, but, even if it would have normal physics, it would still be trash

I-what? What is this hack???
The description of this hack being quite difficult and cryptic is 100% fitting. Thanks to Aran for his video, used that to find Wave Beam and a few early major items.
The physics are incredibly jarring coming from vanilla SM, it's the opposite of redesign. You fall super slow and ascend super slow, with the exception of running jumps mucking that up.
There are many areas to go to and the art is done incredibly well, but it's just...such a tiring journey. I didn't expect to beat this in one sitting, a lot of luck played into that. And the final boss is, indeed, rather difficult. If you're willing to put up with the frustrating physics and really difficult exploration, this may be a really good hack. I like the art, but a lot of other things + the lack of testing really drives it down.
Do not recommend.

I got to the boss and quit after a few attempts. If I had Charge beam I would have continued grinding because I see a viable strat but without it it would be too tedious to farm his drops.

I recommend this if you are Veteran level and want to have your patience tested to the limit.

punishing hack towards the end, but has some really cool looking rooms. blast ball can go to heque, i turned it off and diagonal bomb jumped when possible. this has possibly the weirdest draygon yet seen in a hack. (this is good.) i missed out on wave, ice, botwoon, kraid, probably a bunch more.
