Here is the author's message(Translated by Baidu):
Hello, everyone. Yes, after many years, ShuiJing's new fusion hack is coming again. This time, the production volume is relatively large, and the production time is about six months. ShuiJing can guarantee that the hack is well made and the difficulty is moderate. Almost all the friends who have played the original fusion can handle this hack easliy.


Special thanks for this hack production:

ShuijingMenghuan: I thank myself (Analysis and reconstruction of the whole route, room layout replacement)

Heyhooheihoo: technical production (cover, menu BGM, Chinese story, background replacement and other technical problems)

HuanmengXujing: technical guidance (technical problems such as the addition of hidden rooms, the generation of sulfuric acid rooms, and the replacement of ending welfare pictures)

QiShu: Bilibili-7Jishu, technology and entertainment live anchor, played through all ShuiJing's hacks, including this time of course (looking forward to the wonderful performance that will be shown soon)

Mengmeng: Although he didn't participate in the production of this work, many of the ways to get high-level items were created by this grandson... Cough cough... This big guy (looking forward to live broadcast)

For ones who want to achieve secret plot:


Please use USA version to patch.

A quality halfhack(?) of fusion..
..tho I may be conditioned by some "less good" hacks.
I loved all the boss room changes. They made fights different and without going the common route of "make everything harder".
Liked all the "tricky" movement stuff for optional items and that as far as I recall it wasn't for progression.
Only real nitpick I have wit this hack is path to supers download. It's not exactly common knowledge that you can do that, and as far as I can tell there weren't other places that used same trick. If you're going to have that required, it's good to have optional items using same mechanic beforehand where player could notice, learn and practice it.
There was also some minor lack of polish. Exit distances on vertical doors, "uncovered" door transitions in between sector shortcuts, some rooms looking like they were "made, but not tiled". Some breakable blocks that seemed like leftovers from previous iterations of the room.

don't remember well my end time and %, but this half-hack is not really good but for a chinesse hack it is as progression are not closed behind frame prefect BS tricks, that is reserve more for optional stuff and even then only some (with except to shinespark chain which a lot is forced but still not that bad compared to a lot of bad hacks). it is a rather ugly hack at several points and boss room layout are not that good, but i feel like this person really disliked box and x-box fight as he made them free to the point you only need to aim and shoot to win, but some other fight are horrible like the plasma core-x is really bad as you have no room to navigate and will take hit so you better find some energy tank before that fight or you are fucked and you better be good.

over-all its not that bad but i won't call it a good hack at all far from it, i do not recomand but i also do not say you have to avoid it, there is some fun you can get if you are into this kind of hack.

The hack based on author's own level,so it is not very friendly for the general.
If you wanna enjoy yourself,I don't recommend to play.on the contrary,if you want to enjoy the pain and improve your skills,This hack is your best choice.
It has almost all skills on Fusion.You evem never seen some.
In a way,I think it easier than the original like "cooling unit operational" that has shorter distance,and all those beam core-x have a "nice place" so you can beat them easily.however,above all need you have a fine skill.
As for events,you must know all includes when go to nevigation room so as to you don't get lost.Because Chinese authors is not able to add Chinese texts,thus they never consider the story,just propaganda a result,you will feel puzzled and don't know what you are doing.

In a word,if you wanna have better skills,you will like it.
Recommended(Not recommende for the general player)

No completion stats.
Remix of fusion, awkward tiling, same map design, doesn't even update map to match door colors...
Nothing but shot blocks... Disappointing... Lots of non-solid walls hiding intended path. Would not recommend.

Some features seem unpolished, such as the minimap or tilings, this Chinese hack is completed though. It is interesting but challenging, and I don't think it is "vanilla" tier - maybe veteran is approriate. Strange techniques or tricks are required for both the playthrough and optional items.

Recommended if you enjoy other tricky Chinese hacks or want to enjoy them. Not recommended otherwise.

An easy and comfortable hack by shuijing of China. I think it's suitable to the new players.

Pretty good actually. Among the best of the Chinese Fusion hacks for one simple reason: it doesn't try to do too much. It locks a lot of final exploration behind L4 locks and screw attack blocks, and it can and will murder you, but it's a halfhack so it doesn't ruin the map or make navigation confusing. 100% is actually impossible unless you're some kind of TASer but you can comfortably collect around 90% of the items in the hack with pre-existing Fusion skills. Those skills are important, too - I don't recommend this hack to anyone who isn't already familiar with all of Fusion's quirks and gotten 100% in vanilla, though nothing actually prepares you for the dreaded drop-thru platforms only used everywhere outside of vanilla (and, to a lesser extent, diagonal missile blocks, though there is only one instance of those.) Savestates highly recommended, but you will have fun.
