Difficult but correct!, I only didn't like that you can't go back to previous zones, rooms with water, some room elements that hide your view & parts with Grappling Beam... but, definitely is one of the best hacks, the mechanic with the Shrinespark is entertaining & funny!, & finally... I could see Spazer & Plasma Beam together!, that's was great!, thank you Benox50, this hack is highly recommended!

Version 1.1.5

Very, very good hack, reworked graphics and music, it looks beautiful & sound great, but it has a rare item counter, I didn't find 1 Energy Tank, 1 Reserve Tank, some Missile expansions, but it shows 100% of items, it's necessary the X-Ray Scope earlier & an updated map screen like Hyper Metroid or Super Metroid: Escape II in version 1.1.6... but... despite that, it's highly recommended!

This hack isn't bad, just is short & seems incomplete, it has some issues like wrong location on map screen & doesn't save your trail after save, a map screen that looks like Hyper Metroid or Super Metroid: Escape II would be great!, it haven't Super Missiles too, but... the ship looks fantastic & performance is very good, the multiple suits idea is good but needs to be expanded, this hack has potencial!

Super Metroid: Escape... in general is a very good hack, it gives you great exploration & freedom, it's entertaining and interesting... but it has some little details that can be fixed:

In Brinstar & Wrecker Ship rooms there're platforms that are invisibles, even with the X-Ray Scope, some rooms have parts that propel you up or down, but there's no any indicator & that's annoying, other rooms don't have items, they're empty, like the rooms after Draygon & Ridley, you don't find anything after defeating them, rooms with sand in Maridia are tedious, it has a few small graphic glitches, in Wrecker Ship & Norfair, the map screen has a glitch that loses your progress after save, if the map screen were like its sequel Super Metroid: Escape II with room passages would be awesome!

But... despite that, it's worth playing a lot, it's recommendable!

Phazon Hack 0.3

It's not as good as it appaers, for now... the level & enemy designs are great, the exploration factor is great too, but... Energy Recharge Blue Sphere is bad idea, it's annoying to wait, it's better the classic Energy Recharge Station, the X-Ray Scope doesn't show some hidden paths, it has some wrong enemy & platforms placements, Dark & Light Beams are too slow, weak & almost useless, the Warp Zone is confused & tedious, isn't possible see the entire map screen on Tetrafuse Zone & isn't accesible on Warp Zone, it doesn't show the item locations & has some graphical glitches where some parts that you already visited have disappeared, if the map screen were like Hyper Metroid or Super Metroid: Escape II would be fantastic!, there's bugs that freeze the game sometimes, the Space Jump is trash!, I had many problems with it, I continuously fell down in open areas, it's necessary the Re-spin & the ending is very hurried on, two bosses continuous?, one after another isn't good & the WORST SHIT is the mockball trick, it's not required to finish the game, but is required for the 100% completion, nobody needs this trick, with the wall jump trick is enough.

For now, Phazon Hack 0.3 is an average hack, but it has potential!, great potential to become one of the best hacks of this site!, A_red_monk_called_Key we need the version 1.0!, all complete, optimized & finished without silly tricks that damage the game's fluidity

Version 1.11

This hack gets so boring & tedious in a few hours, it doesn't offer anything really good beyond the visual... at first it was very well, I had that feeling of curiosity and finding various items kept me interested, but after a while everything that goes away, the areas were some confusing & it gets repetitive and annoying, then, the Space Jump is a complete bullshit!, uncontrollable, almost useless & to get it, I used the infinite bomb jump trick, but I don't know if it was the correct or I broke up the sequence, the map screen has some glitches... this hack was a big disappointment for me

In general is an average hack... but, it has some confusing & tedious places to go through, final part was weird and unsatisfactory, map doesn't show areas that you have explored previously after save & the worst bullshit: the speedball puzzles, they're annoying, I couldn't get any Reserve Tank & wasn't the only one

I remember an impossible Shinespark challenge in Norfair & I couldn't access in a couple rooms in Maridia, most areas are very fine but some are too tedious & boring especially in Maridia & Crateria, also I didn't get the Screw Attack & I was not interested in getting it, if the map screen showed the room's hallways similar to Hyper Metroid or Super Metroid: Escape II, that would help a lot, the escape was confusing & annoying, I didn't rescue the animals due to lack of time, & finally... it forces you to go underwater... the worst... those areas aren't funny

This hack was a disappointing for me... I didn't finish it... it's good until more or less the first boss... after that, when you have the Hi-jump Boots, Samus hits various platforms with her head, she looks like Mario or Luigi & isn't funny, it's stupid, I remember a terrible Speed Booster puzzle in Norfair, I couldn't get through, when I went back to Brinstar, it was difficult to get to Crateria, the tour was tedious & annoying, the map screen didn't help, if it had a map like Hyper Metroid or Super Metroid: Escape II would be excellent, but... finally... I got tired of playing it

It's not a funny hack, lack of wall jump & the physics only reduce fun... unnecessarily

Version 0.32

The atmosphere & graphics are very well, but, you can't save in Save Stations, if you save in the ship the game will crash, it has some tileset glitches & doesn't combine the beams, change between them is a problem, it has some wrong enemy placements, the map screen is a trash & lose your progress... in general is too short... this hack has potential, but for now is incomplete & not worth it

It's a hack with good graphics, but everything else is shit, big shit!... despite the graphics, it has some tile glitches, the background is very well but is some confusing, sometimes it blends with normal platforms, the music is maddening & loud, it's not as good as it seems, the battle with Spospo was trash, very stressful & tedious, those parts with Grappling Beam... really?, why don't the creators understand that Grappling Beam is one of the worst shits in Super Metroid?, after that, next part with morphball before getting the Speed Booster, seriously?, I couldn't continue without savestates, when you're forced to use savestates, you know that this hack is not worth it, this hack compites with Redesing to be the worst!, I'm very disappoinment & annoying, I enjoyed nothing... just the beginning, please don't waste your time with this shit, better play another hack!

The map screen has a glitch where it loses your previous trail & is annoying, also it's boring, tedious & insipid... same as Super Metroid: Kill Time, not worth it!

This hack is trash, it has graphical issues, just at the beginning, the ball doesn't see & those issues continue, you can see Samus running in the air... & of course, physics are shit!, but, even if it would have normal physics, it would still be trash

One word describes this hack: MUCK!. It seems that is unfinished, it has several annoying graphic glitches, the exploration is boring, tedious & insipid... so, why does it have three orbs?, it doesn't deserve them!, one orb is too many for this shit

I've been playing version 1.3 until Norfair and I'm not going to continue, it's ridiculous to take damage from the high temperature, it's trash, that's not interesting or funny, I don't recommend it, better play another hack
