Version 1.0 (OLD) :

The "Abandoned Laboratory" premise is cool on paper, however it's very poorly executed, level design is bland and often unfair (lots of hidden blocks, possible softlocks, very punishing and overwhelming rooms).
The hack also lacks a lot of polish (non connected tiles, opaque liquid, static BG3, weird transitions, very confusing and weird minimap...)
The dark filter is cool, a little bit too dark for me but the idea is here, custom music is also pretty nice and i like the font and fast item grabbing patches.
Don't recommend, but i hope the future versions are better.

Version 1.0 (New) :

Much better than the previous version, still pretty bad though.
Level design is much better than last time, but it's fairly ugly, there's a lot of tiling errors and doors sometimes use the wrong graphics, and are way too long.
Enemy placement is also bad, sometimes they're right after a door so you're forced to take damage, the white palette is also weird and hurts the eyes.
Deorem brokes the room, and some doors are broken, still don't recommend.

The first version was a bugfest, yes, but was playable and enjoyable.
The new version is way better now and has potential.
I'm following the development of the hack and will update the rating with updates.
Shaping up to be cool.

Both versions of this hack are bullshit. This is NOT a fun hack to play. Ovoid this hack at ALL COST!

(This may be a pointlessly long review, I suck at condensing things.)
I won't be the first to say this, and I probably won't be the last; this hack is very poorly made on a general level.

I hate to sound crass and be harsh, but I got perma-locked when playing the game as intended(?)
I'd let something like this slide if this were the first version of the hack and was subsequently fixed in a "Day-One" patch, but as far as I can tell, the update fails to address the issues I faced.

This hack lacks any form of polish, doors are placed weird, the layouts of the rooms and map are generally confusing, stale, and over-all, needlessly cramped, etc. etc.

Unfortunate, as you likely have a passion for making Metroid hacks/fan-games (why else would you have made this, otherwise?). But, consider spending a few extra hours polishing and fully playing through the hack to make sure it's actually beatable.

I entered this hack as open-mindedly as I could, seeing as it's your first hack, it's obviously going to lack polish and generally be a poor experience, but this is genuinely a low-point in the poor hacks I've played throughout my time.

I hope the issues I, and others have brought to light are addressed, and improved upon in the future, you can do this.

First version is a mess (1 / 5)

Second version shows potential... stops right after that.
