Welcome to Super Mirrortroid :)

This hack is straight up a mirror image of the original game! You'd be surprised how easily you can get lost when everything is flipped around.
All sequence breaking strats still work, including the Green Gate Glitch, which could add some interesting routing options.

Version 1.1 comes with several graphical fixes/tweaks, an improved Crocomire room, and several miscellaneous fixes and improvements to smooth out some of the rough edges (and fixed save rooms).

I have added a wish list to the forum post to list the few things that I would like to do to it for a bit more 'polish' (things outside of my pay grade), but it is 100% completable and a pretty dang fun experience.

Keep in mind that it isn't totally perfect and that there are subtle changes in order to make things work in the only way I know how.

Credit for the Kraid fight goes to Metaquarius - thank you for being a genius and making my life better

Credit for the Phantoon door fix goes to ouichegeante - thank you for being incredible

If you find any errors or have ideas for improvement, just let me know :)

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.
