Very good short hack.

The amount of possible routes is really nice.
The size of the map being 10x10 makes item search nice and fluent. No need for random bombing.
First I thought Ridley would be a tough fight witht the equipment I got but It seems like he got nerfed quite a bit. So the difficulty should be doable for Vanilla players and easy for Advanced players.
Hard mode is actually hard

If you have about 30 to 60 minutes to spare definetly try this.

Finished.

Spooky Mission 1 is a good game.
The Areas are great and the music is gud. For one of the first ZM hacks this is pretty well done.

I can literally not explain how good this hack is.

This is probably the most corrupt Metro Prime 3 scam we've ever seen! Change the game a bit and have even more fun! This may be nice because it's the only Metro Prime 3 scam, but I personally don't think so!

Metroid Prime 2 Bugulu Electric Master. Google has turned the game into the best game of all time! I was black and the hero is not clear and he likes and likes the first game? Eventually, Vanilla's return to the game changed from a whole new experience!

Honestly, for a first hack this is pretty good...

There are some small things that should be changed, like the spacing of the Platforms in some Brinstar towers but other than that its pretty faithful to the original but still changes enough to make it original.
Its a little bit sad, that the mothership is not changed though.

The Mother Brain fight is horrible though.

Did finish.
Do recommend.

Really good hack for the time it came out.
The music is good and the graphics pretty awesome.
Phazon mines is obviously the best area in all regards.
The researche center is just annoying to traverse through...
Back then when I played this hack for the Contest I really didnt like the size of the areas and rooms... and I still dont like them.
The areas are way to big for the content they hold. There are so many unececcary rooms that are a pain in the ass to get through and then the items are just open in the rooms. I hope everyone gets what I mean. It would have been way better if the open items would have put in the really long, hard to go through, rooms.

Finished
Recommend if you have about 2-3 hours to spare

Really interesting idea for a hack.

If you want a challenge, this is the hack for you!
Also the replayability is pretty high because of the different modes and the hidden item :p

I liked how some bosses were simple enemys but with a twist!

The only negative thing I can think about is the tiling which is a bit wonky at some points.

Recommended!

(Missed a missile in a hidden room)

Pretty challenging short and sweet hack.
Would recommend to everyone that has some time to spare.

But one should keep in mind that because its one room a death resets E V E R Y T H I N G.
(which is the only reason for only 4 orbs)

I didn't know if I should rate the hack 4 or 3 but decided to rate 4.

Pro:
- Nice Pallete
- Nice Tileset
- The "recreation" of Zebes is pretty unique and good

Con:
- Some tiling errors and weird tiling
- Theres a pretty big sequence break in the first norfair room
- sometimes the way-to-go is not really clear

Cant really add much to what the others already said.

Some boring level desing.
Double Jump is fun.

If you want to play a slightly harder Zero Mission this is the hack for you. Tourian is challenging because Metroids take like 10 missiles but otherwise its pretty much the same.

Did not finish. Do not recommend.

Edit:
Why did I even rate 3 orbs... this is trash

No Idea what this hack is... probably the worst hack Ive played so far...
Do I even need to talk about the palletes?
Music is good
Level design awful

Do not recommend!

Could have been worse but also could have been better.

I know that this is his first hacking experience but some things could have been improved even without special hacking knowledge. For example the tiling, even though the hack has custom tilese they are not really good. There should also have been some hints for breakable blocks and secret passages because thats really not a hard thing to do and it's just frustrating to search for some stupid invisible walls.

The save station is bugged because theres solid clipdata infront of it.

Overall not the worst hack, also pretty playable but also not great.

Wish you luck on your next hack!
