ver1.00 by YP

Thank you for downloading. Play with the Unheadered ROM patched.

1. The gravity of Samus is heavy.
2. I can't jump.
3. Re-rotation jump is possible.
4. If you hit the needle, you will die instantly!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

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

Those who are playing some of the hackroms will be able to 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.
