The hack achieves what it set do to, a modified experience of the vanilla game.

It needs some small polish to get rid of the softlocks around the normal route. Early game, entrance to Climb you can get stuck in kneel pose right away on the ledge if you try jumping forward. You need to carefully move forward. Late game, if you enter Mickey Mouse room from lower side, softlock due to the door remaining grey. So don't enter it by mistake.

The recurring theme is walljumping and everything around it. It presents a tougher but a fresh outlook on the same map. But it is very pervasive, so I wish author enabled respin. There is no skill involved in having to do same walljump antics twice just because you have to open the door from the jump.


Overall a fun hack and a recommended play.

In some ways this is better than the original Rotation. It has some upgrades with farms working correctly. Working gates. It was also able to keep crumbles in places that Rotation had to remove them. Etc.

I had one crash at phantoon, but the author fixed it already. Time is real-time. My IGT was 2:33. Definitely could do it faster, but it was fun to visit every room and see everything.

Why are you still reading this? Go play it!

After having played Rotation, I was excited to try its spiritual successor. Many of the same techniques come into play here, and many of the tweaks that need to happen to certain rooms to traverse them are handled a little differently in otherRotation. Great care has obviously been taken to make sure that the rooms work the way you would EXPECT!

I came into it expecting some tricky tech and satisfying maneuvers. In the end I was fully satisfied and intend to play it some more.

I'm mostly here to second what dagit wrote: even better than the original Rotation, with some commonsense fixes and upgrades to make the game look and feel smoother. In the respin version, I kept having the game crash whenever I fired a super missile. That said, when I switched back to the non-respin version, everything worked smoothly. Thanks for a great new angle on the greatest Super Nintendo game of all time!
