This is really a neat and well-designed hack. It has new stuff you might not find in other hacks. But i was going to give it a 4-star because it's kind of short. Then I watched oats' playthrough and found i missed something really interesting and unique. i felt that might be the best part of this hack. that's why i gave it a 5-star. there are a bunch of secrets in this hack. some are hidden really well, so explore carefully.

nice graphics and music. the world is pretty open and interesting to explore. when i died in sporespawn area once, it teleported me to a new water area. I'm not sure if it's intended or not, but it didn't affect my playthrough at all. after getting space jump and screw attack, the game became a little less challenging to me. i collected all the items on the map that the map station showed to me, but collection rate was only 66%? i got all the major items except xray, and 14 Etanks 110 missiles 25 Supers 25 powerbombs. BTW, when i reloaded at the final area save station, the graphics in the room was broken.

Didn't like the physics changes and spikes one hit kill part. but still, this is an excellent hack.

best hack of 2021, and one of the greatest of all time. I especially like the non-linear design and you can change the physics to vinilla style.

When I was playing this hack, it gave me a familiar and strange feeling. It's very different from the vinilla game. Interesting experience. Highly recommend 100% item collection.

An excellent hack. The route design is very unique, and you can explore in many different ways. Kraid and Ridley fights are tough, especially if you don't have enough items. Animals saved.

To be honest, I hate infinite wall jump. But considering I have played Mirrortroid and Uptroiddown, so I have to give this hack a shot. I would say this hack is better than Mirrortroid but not as good as Uptroiddown.

The gameplay is very similar to the vinilla game, which makes me feel a bit bored. But still a good hack. Worth playing.

A very interesting hack. Didn't use the new item magnet too much, but still a pretty creative design. BGM in the game is a little boring. Aesthetic is very unique. Recommend.

No save stations in the game. The only way you can save the game is at ship, so used savestates. It's a good hack and has some pretty interesting challenge. Animals saved.

This hack is a little boring. It just feels like another vinilla run. oh, I got my first full halfie in this hack.

The physics changed in this hack are really really really annoying. Some rooms are so frustrating that I almost quit. It's a terrible experience for me. Really don't like this hack. Although the palettes are pretty good.
