Very nice job. Surprisingly, it plays more disorienting than Rotation to me because your instincts fight you to go one way when you know you need to go the other. This became more so apparent in Norfair. Its a neat spin that I assume everyone knew was going to come one day after Rotation. I applaud anyone that takes the time and effort to make a purposeful hack even if not perfect. Obviously the boss fights and their positioning is the one thing I assume was difficult to tweak. Great job, thanks for the hack.

It's alright.

Has a couple of flaws (Croc and half of Tourian/MB not being flipped, acid-lowering statue in LN and pre-Gravity Suit statue) but ultimately does what it's intended to do.

Had fun so I recommend it.

Nice brain teaser to flip everything around. Similar to rotation, but you have access to everything. Fun play through if you are looking for something new for SM.

It's a very odd thing to play. I beat it and I'm still confused. lol. There's a couple of janky moments with Crocomire in particular being quite jarring, and IMO should be changed, but most of the other issues were too minor to care about. At the end of the day despite the concept seemingly being very simple I'm sure it was a ton of work. A Mirror mode for Super Metroid, albeit imperfect, is a great Vanilla hack and one I was happy to play.

The gameplay is very similar to the vinilla game, which makes me feel a bit bored. But still a good hack. Worth playing.

This game is confusing but fun, several times I had to check the map to know where to go. Thanks for taking the time to create it, it was fun to play.

Another solid "Buggman" hack. Played all of his hacks so far. Can be confusing at times, just like the other versions of rotated SM.

No completion stats.
bg data not flipped

not bad, it's honestly better than the other two rotation hacks and is on par with UpTroidDown.. 6/10
