One of the best hacks I've seen. So full of fun stuff, many new ideas, every map feels fresh and has many stuff that even a player new to speedrun-y stuff can do.
My fav area? Zone 2.
But every room, from the smallest to the largest, is never dull.
Puzzles? lots of them and all clever.
When you get to the solution for them your head click on it and it's never frustrating.
One of the coolest thing? I was going through a room in zone 3 and... didn't even realize that I learned how to Quick Charge... I saw the bumps on the floor and said "is there some puzzle that involves this?". I tried running on the corridor using the dash button in time with them and boom. Learned it. And now can't go back to normal ever even on vanilla hacks.
The coolest thing about Speedbooster? The unique ability to... MOVE in it. It slowed it down, sure, but the ability to move while using it, and the puzzle involving it were amazing.
And I loved all the various ways to solve a puzzle or to traverse an area by unlocking new abilities or items, or not having them, you always could find a way to move around regardless.
One of the best games I played.
BRAVO!

An hard to 100% but very fun hack.
Learned lots of tricks and very good use of Project Base.
Fresh in every room and so many secrety stuff and not a dull moment.
Some collectible may take some patience but I went in with little knowledge.
Reccomend playing Project Base first.
Very good.

This was a damn cool hack. I even translated it into Italian for however much I could without going through graphics editing.
The music was superb. Areas were great. Every room crafted great. Congrats on the whole team.
Only part that was kinda "ugh" moment were those rooms in Turrim with crumbling blocks. Nothing bad just took some tries to do xD pheraps cause I didn't have the item from Arx to help me through?
Full of surprises and cool items names to top it all!

Lots of fun
It's for veterans allright. Learned a lot from it. Hard in some parts for 100% for sure. For normal gameplay not too much. Very creative in many ways. Tourian... Tourian... MAN that was awesome too.
Without spoiling too much, it was the best. Agree with the others.
Can't wait to play more, Z-fusion is coming along nicely.
Thanks for the awesome time!

P.s. I've no idea what the guy above is saying. Besides the fact that in other metroids you take damage from heat without Varia? And I haven't struggled with that ever. And I'm not a speedrunner at all.

So. this hack. is one of the most creative I've seen.
Complete overhaul change of SM.
New mechanics. New music. New power ups. All new enemies. New attacks from enemies. All new. New hazards. New movements. You'll see a planet unlike anything you've seen before. Even the map is a riddle. And the surprise on the right side... O boy... that was amazing.
If you're in search of a "short" but interesting hack, complete with a MANUAL including lore and help too. Play this. Very nice. 5/5.
Can't wait for the sequel!

Short and sweet hack. Pretty good short hack. I posted the map for the hack in the forum too if you're missing something for 100%. Different ending if "Bad" or "Okay" difficult too. Some nice ideas, lots of updates it seems according to the version. Will update my review if a new version comes out, lots of different routes too depending on if you find certain secrets and stuff. Loved the troll powerbomb block that turns into lava.

Only encountered one "glitch" really that could have hindered 100%: in the rooms with the chozo test, the Super expansion is not marked on map till obtained, for some reason. There was a weird minimap glitch in the Maridia room that disables the gates.

A quick hack but very well done.
10x10 map with some secrets. A very nice surprise I've to say.
Very enjoyable.
Also has different paths to take.

One quick note: for an expansion you seem to need to do walljumps, but really easy to do.
I've also done a map and will post it soon in the forum!

Arrival. Is a good hack.
101%ed it and it felt really good.
No real big trick in its sleeves. Except one. You know which one if you played it to completion. But really not that bad. Felt satisfied and the music. MAN the music. <3
Only one thing that stick to me were some of the bosses were literally jokes.
But the rest solid hack. Nice job.
Yea the numbers are wrong on the page. They should be:
%age: 101%
ET: 9
M: 200
SM: 20
PB: 30

Very nice hack. creative ways to bring super in gba form. there's room for improvements in some part and I see 4.0 brought many. I loved the detail on escape. You know which if you played till the end. Can't wait for more updates in the future.

the things I hated about it... is the sand. holy heck its a nightmare to get out of!

100%ed- or should I say 174%ed- another hack.
Was very interesting.
The open-world of the game i very enjoyed.
I completed the game and then I saw I missed those 3 supers in the excape. dangit.
Very good exploration and of course, the wicked stuff like the missiles.
And... that energy tank... you know which one... Wasn't super hard but damn got my brain thinking.

Ok. the looks of the hack was very good.
Lack of working saves was fine as we've savestates and all.
The Draygon fight was very interesting and hard.
Ridley I was afraid of getting stuck in the wall, interestingly the creator thought of it and got some crumble blocks to unstuck me, but then after the escape sequence started... without me defeating Phantoon and getting the last item, so had to break the tension by going to Phantoon, getting back, and escaping in the tranquil music lol
Wasn't a bad hack at all. Very nice ideas. The springball incorporating a fastball was cool. Beam Doors was nice, but would also need a quick button for quick switch imho.
But some issues like saves and all doesn't allow me for 5 stars. BUT very enjoyed it.
Completition % is basicly 100%. It wasn't changed for the items that are in the hack.
I've to add one thing. I see this being more "Nature" than SM Nature. Had so much plants and such LOL

Really liked it.
You can see the recognize the original's rooms but they're all new and a fresh paint of everything.
The boss order is what threw me off, not in a bad way, but I had a hard time getting to where Maridia starts for real (unless you do a close quarters short charge). Draygon before Botwoon lol. One of the complaints I've is, it kinda needed some shortcut cause traversing a region whole sometimes, with how big it is, it feels kinda slow. For the rest really enjoyed.
p.s. sometimes the map breaks big time erasing progress in it lol

5 stars review for this marvelous hack!
another great hack by Albert V. after having played TotW that I also reccomend.
can see many of the feauture that come after in TotW being used here and a great use of Project Base.
The use of the meteorball, that included the glitch that allowed that Speedbooster was fun.
Very open world. Lots of sequence breaks and secrets.
Can't wait for new version in the future.
Thanks once again!

Another great hack. More and more :)
Very enjoyable, creepy yes but great.
The game mechanics are seen after reloading the game once by the way.
And they're great. The polarity, the magnet field, the threat. All great.
And with the touch of moehr I saw before in Temple of the Winds.
A very reccomended hack, may be short, but enjoyable to the fullest.
5 stars once again :)

One of the strongest hacks with an intense story told by the ambient itself, the world, the action.
And... man that ending was something else.
Thank goodness I didn't get spoiled by the end and neither should you.
Go and play it yourself.
100%ed it. Not much difficulty on that at all even with no experience on speedrunning or tricks one should be able to. Just a bit of easy Mid-air morph required but found out it wasn't hard in this hack at all.
Can't wait to play Eris!
Thanks DM!

Played 2012 version.
Another great hack after Vitality.
Completely amazed by how well it's done.
Can see how it influenced Vitality and is sure not an easy hack. Had to come back after playing other hacks and honing my skills.
Wasn't skill-difficult mostly, the hard part was the enemies that hit like a truck :D
Managed to complete it 100% and was a great experience.
Can't wait to play another hack by DM!
Highly reccomended!

Axeil edition. was something else. everyone was so into saying difficulty. but really wasn't that hard for me. maybe cause I had much more experience from playing hard hacks lately. It surely was an experience and something that helped me think outside the box on how to accomplish some stuff without the usual stuff that you see in certain hacks. Sorry animals. I'll save you next hack, hopefully. 12h precise to complete was nice pace. Thanks drew for the help and support. And everyone at MetConst server.

finished it completely (up to BOX which is the final room accessible and got all items present in the hack. Veteran difficulty is not really needed really.
No completion time as you can't go back to save station.
Will do a recording and check the recording time next try.

max% is 83% on latest version.
besides some weirdness (yeah the invisible platforms - including a few on the way to tourian though untouchable lol) it was really good. play it!

A modified, revised and special edition of GBA edition, but in its own rights.
Better, faster, refined and with all the qol you may want from it.

Something else is coming that I can't wait to play more and more.

Metroid: Falling... it was long overdue. Started playing it just before Dread and after a long time I finished it just now. This hack was... wild.
The bosses... man it felt like a chore to beat ridley tbh. I didn't think of using PBs too... but man it hit too hard.
Kraid I regret entering it soon as I could. I got the heck out of it as soon as I saw what was happening.
Besides bosses it was very enjoyable.
Weirdly enough, besides the Metroids respawning, Tourian and MB were basicly vanilla. I expected MB to start sprouting new attacks or have insane health after the other bosses but no lol
Still a great hack, just the bosses were a bit unfair. 5 stars.

P.s. beware of the room before the end: save if you intend to get 100% and you missed something as you can't go back from dropping into the single block.

What can I say about this hack...
A nightmare.
Not cause of the difficulty. I get it. Hard sponge enemies (including the farming enemies. and guess what? you NEED them. HARD. SUPER HARD. if you want to survive. you need to farm. HARD.)
then you get to the possibility to get early super. you get it and bam you hardlock yourself in the ruins by entering them before you should. no way back.
ok you EDIT the doors to get back and continue. then you get back there you do a very very hard excape from the executioner, and you skip all expansions cause you're followed by him. Ok I'll get them later.
You go back at the end of the game. Guess what? the door to the excape with executioner is locked so all those items are unobtainable. Door editing again.
You enter the final area (the labs) and go beat it with thousand savestates cause the amps hit you hard as a truck. then the metroids which require 3 supers to kill (with no refills besides puny -ZM rng- cheerios) and you basicly need 100% (which is 93% btw) to even get through + refilling slowly.
Then you try excaping and good lord mother brain was hard but a nice welcome fight (though in my case it was harder cause i had to go back and edit a door to get through back to the invincible enemy to get the missile and didn't heal in any way).
A mess but a good direction in hacking. thanks.
(sorry for all the edited doors but the road blocks :( )

One of the longest hack I've played and damn its good. lots of opportunities to go out of your way to do stuff and grab them early. Discovered also more of them thanks to jasinchen. Lots of fun.

Not at all difficult, some interesting puzzles and ideas. Can't wait for the next hack! I played a different version that had the standard music over copyrighted ones unfortunately due to playing for youtube too but I'll go back and check the other musics soon on my own.

100%. 5:41:40. 5 stars. Bravo!

Most people seem to have stopped after Ridley. You forgot one item you just got after Ridley, it has its uses. Go back and explore :p You'll unlock the other half of the hack!

An excellent hack with many ideas that brought together a very hot experience. Pun intended.

I love how the different events changed the world around, with more powerful pirates and even different passages opening, lava included ala Metroid 2.

The secret area brought something really interesting that I wanna see in future hacks. Won't say more.

The different "bosses" rooms are a fresh change to hacks.

5 stars for a short hack that felt very good.

Bravo!

Reworked is one way to define it. yes some stuff were changed so you can't get them early but that changed so others could and its a fine twist to the usual ZM vanilla.
difficult at the right level, and changed enough to feel fresh.
a fresh coat to a great game.
Bravo!
