Metroid Crawl modifies the character movement to allow crouched walking.

The otherwise vanilla game is augmented to require crawling. The morph ball has been removed from its usual location, and many single tile high tunnels have been expanded to two tiles high to allow progression through the game without the morph ball.

Blocks that can be destroyed with bombs can now also be destroyed with missiles.

It's ok. But after a while, I dislike that I don't have the Morph ball. You can't open yellow doors with it.

This hack leaves you asking, "Why can't metroid morph?"

I spent a good chunk of the early game laughing.

Eventually the new gimmick just didn't matter. At that point I almost stopped. There was one item I couldn't find and that kept me going more than anything. I tried to use xray in the bowling room at the back of wrecked ship but the game crashed. Unfortunately, that caused me to lose about 10 items I had collected. So my final percentage was 89% instead of 99%.

Overall, it's a funny goof twist on vanilla but once you reach the plasma pirates room after draygon you've seen all the hack has to offer.
