No relation to the hack for Super Metroid, this is something I made because I thought the MAGE software was interesting and I had the flu. I guess it's a halfhack? Anyway, it's a port of the original NESTroid map to Zero Mission. You should be able to use the original map to complete this game. The main difference is the original had far more of a focus on platforming, so prepare your jump timing.

This isn't a difficult hack but you should be comfortable with bomb and wall jumping. Minimap is turned off because I was feeling a bit sadistic.

But this is close to Nestroid. No power grip, no space jump, no gravity suit, no ziplines, 5 missiles a door, etc.

However, there's still walljumping, beam stacking, and all the other QOL features we know and love.

To be honest, this hack has the worst tiling I've ever seen.
For being a NEStroid port, it is incredibly inaccurate to the original, in fact some room were kept vanilla for some reason. The scrolls are also terrible.
If you want a NEStroid port, go check out NES Mission: that hack is very accurate to the original and has good tiling.
Finished, recommend only if you want to hurt your eyes with bad tiling

I'd much rather play Retroid on the SNES.

Yes , i finished this and sadly enough that made me wanted to play the original Nestroid even more.
it's feel greatly unfinished , Tiling is bad weird enemy position , stuff that wasn't on the original game ? and others stuff , i agree with TBC on a point And same for Tom , it's way better to play the original , Retroid SNES or The Nes Mission (even if i don't like it personally but it is may more interesting)

I hope but hightly doubt another version will fix this mess.

do not recommend.
