Thank you for downloading. Patch the Unheadered ROM and play.

1. Samus's gravity is getting heavier.
2. I can't bomb jump.
3. Re-rotation jump is possible.
4. If you hit the needle, you will die instantly !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5. Change the specifications of the speed booster.
Wall Jump is now possible while maintaining Speed ??Booster.
The input grace is short and it is very difficult, but the game can proceed even if you can not do it.

6. Display in-game time and item percentage on the HUD.
7. The number of items is the same as the original.
8. Other

If you are playing some hacking, you can clear it.

Got better the more I played.
Lots of interesting ideas in this hack, and some challenging items to get that revolve around the speedboost walljumping physics.

A very good hack and a big improvement over YPR.

Nice custom GFX.
Some cool ideas. I was really impressed with a section of Maridia in particular where the author implemented a very interesting mechanic.

Being able to maintain Speed Booster while wall jumping made for a couple interesting challenges for items.

I didn't really like the physics changes but I see why they were done and once I got Hi-Jump it wasn't that bad anymore.
Tourian was a bit of a disappointment. The escape in particular was almost the same as vanilla.

I recommend this hack.

Pro Tip: Jumping off walls witth the speedbooster is very hard but doable without Space Jump but is VERY easy with it. I wasted a ton of time trying to get items the hard way.

This is an excellent but difficult hack that becomes much more manageable once you get gravity. It has a unique and distinctive graphical style that I appreciated very much. The physics in the beginning are unique but honestly a little too cumbersome. In the beginning it feels very linear, and it is fairly linear throughout, but it begins to feel like an exploration hack soon enough. There's a door that becomes unlocked with 100% in Tourian so perhaps i'll have to go back and try and see inside but the 4 items I missed I suspect are very well hidden. There's some odd decisions here and there that make some moments a little too harsh IMO but it's a strong hack overall that will challenge almost any well seasoned player. Thanks to the author and all who contributed.

Took about 20hours to get through, tho a part of that was running around looking for secrets
Overall great hack, tho i have mixed feelings about gravity and space jump(and possibly hijump). While super powerful, they make you feel like you wasted your time getting(or trying to) some items before getting those major upgrades.
Took me a while to realize how speed walljumping worked, I first assumed it was during sparking like I've seen in some other hack, but that's on me.
One major gripe I have is the way to progress to botwoon. Suspicious room is suspicious, but since you have no idea that progression is in this area, I ended up going all over the hack looking for something that allowed me to progress, only to come back probably hours later and find the dumb blocks.
It'd be interesting to see a run of this that skipped(or at least delayed) major upgrades.
Definitely recommended if you use savestates. If not, I hope you're patient, but still would recommend it.

Very good hack. Takes a bit to get used to the new gravity and speedwalljumping but other than that absolutely recommended for players with some experience with the game. 100% completion was worth it on my part \o/ good job YP!

Really fun! Instakill spikes were less than desirable but didn't cause too many deaths fortunately. A lot of cool walljump speed booster puzzles, new areas, and new graphics. One thing I didn't like was that I could see vanilla SM room design in certain rooms, but it usually wasn't an issue, just something I noticed. Good exploration though.
