By far one of the coolest hack with new mechanisms and final boss. I'm not gonna spoil but definitely give this hack a try, you won't regret it when you finish it.

Would've loved to hear a custom soundtrack for research station but that's really my only nitpick.

hack with epic ASM.
Casual ASM jank however and some poorly hinted secrets make it only a 4 orb hack.

Another solid Dewhi mini-hack. Having never played Prime, a lot of the themes go over my head, but it's fun to play and Dewhi is slowly becoming an ASM black belt

Very fun quick-play hack.
New mechanics and the boss are cool.

Really cool mini hack. I'm not the biggest fan of sub hour hacks but this one was so cool I'm giving it a 5 anyway. My biggest complaint would be that the game teases the player with progression that they can't actually find. Also the HUD item counter is broken as I got 108%. Great hack, thanks to all who helped.

Really cool hack. I spent like an hour or so searching for items that didn't exist (there are 3 block types that I think are unbreakable). I really wish there was more of this game since the wild new items would be fun in a larger context.

Pretty good. Lots of attention to detail was pulled from the game (area) this pays homage to and the final boss of the hack was a neat surprise. Worth a playthrough.

I approach every mod I review as if it were its own metroidvania game and judge them accordingly, ignoring any similarities to super Metroid (for obvious reasons). The idea is to analyze the mod from the perspective of someone who bought it as a game on Steam. With this disclaimer out of the way, here's the review:

This is the next entry in the Tallon IV tours series which seeks to slowly piece together, mod by mod, the campaign in metroid prime 1. The author seems to have learned from the mistakes made in the first entry but there are issues near the end all the same after getting the heat visor. The game even freezes you if you try to backtrack from backtracking at the end (very unlikely to happen though and save states make this almost a non-issue). The ending is also abrupt and illogical because the game ends with zebes exploding even though I am on a completely different planet called Tallon IV. Nonetheless, the originality in this mod is unparalleled compared to what I've reviewed so far with new weapons, new bosses, new mini-bosses, new abilities, and a beautiful new tileset. It's a metroidvania I believe any experienced metroidvania player will enjoy. A definite 4/5 from me.

Very cool minihack!

Doesn't overstay its welcome, beautiful visuals, neat upgrades and upgrade progression. Hack itself it's easy with the last boss being not a pushover. The snow effects were stunning!

There was some jank sfx and jailbaited regarding some closed doors, breakable blocks and certain upgrades, but the mod is both satisfying to progress/rewarding and FUN.

For a minihack this good, full stars.
