I had an idea for a short hack with just a few rooms... well it got bigger than I exptected.
Its still fairly short and should have an average playtime of 30 minutes!

The Story ingame is a shorter version of the following.
We got a message that the Space Pirates are trying to clone Ridley after I killed
him on my mission on Zebes. They succeeded with the clone and injected him the
ability to be immun to ice. They send him on a test mission to freeze an entire
Planet. I followed Ice-Ridley to the Planet and explored it as Ice-Ridley froze
the Planet. I saw all the friendly creatures freeze in front of me... my Varia
suit saved me. Now I gotta kill Ice-Ridley and unfreeze the planet.

If you find any bugs make sure to post them on my developing Discord you can find on #beta-central in the Metroid Construction Discord.

Theming was great, and the layout was fine overall. Got a tad bit stuck on Ice-Ridley because I'm used to fighting him with Charge Beam, and had to take my time with him.
All items collected. Completion time is based on IGN time, since I forgot to time myself for RTA.
Recommend if you're bored and want to complete something simple that isn't a big hack.

Solid hack. A few tweaks could make this better but overall I enjoyed this.

This is a top tier hack tbh I loved everything about it, the intro is really cool, plus it's also short and sweet. I definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a short yet fun experience!!!

Pretty neat hack. Definitely attempted to copy Deep Freeze. (Kappa) I sequence broke when it was not supposed to be sequence breakable, so that's neat. Very short and worth the playthrough.

Okay hack, it's a nice short mini-hack but doesn't do anything spectacular (or terrible). I liked the overall item progression, but the plasma beam barrier was not telegraphed well and got me stuck on my first play-through. Ice Ridley has quite a bit of hp and is annoying if you don't cheese him, why no charge beam?

Short hack, simple, well done and good theme. Definitely felt a lot like Deep Freeze without copying it which is a great sign. Plasma barrier is super counterintuitive. Very recommendable hack. Keep it going king!

Its a good,short hack with some interesting ideas.
Ridley, while hard, actually test what you can do.
The only complain i have is after Ridley is defeated every enemy is invincable.
I understand that it was suposed to be an chalenge after deafeting final boss akin to a time bomb but it still bit silly.

Pretty good hack overall, it felt like one of the fews that try something more original. Phendrana Drifts and Tallon Overworld ticked that special feeling in me and loved the turn of the final sequence, returning nature to the planet instead of destroying it. Congrats!

Cool (pun intended) little hack. liked it, only problem was the 2 main big hub-kinda rooms were kinda samey-looking which threw me off, if memory serves right.

A very cool and quick hack that was very enjoyable. A nice preview of what'd come in Scrolls Six. Nice job :)

Very well done theming, all the way down to the escape sequence, that was inspired and I love it.

It's deep freeze, but much better and a little bit shorter. Excellent as a metroidvania and one of the best mods I've played so far.

Short, sweet, simple, and straight to the point.. this is another amazing short hack for Zero Mission.. I love the Varia suit palettes and even the name for it. the level design is pretty cool too, for a short hack but there's nothing special about this hack but it's still worth a playthrough if you need something to occupy your time for about 30 mins to an hour

Would Recommend
