This is one of the best rom hacks i've ever played. This game was a masterpiece from the start to the end. The puzzles were alot more challenging, yet fair. The palettes were refreshing, and were extremely atmospheric to the old caves of Zebes. The new mechanics were very useful, yet never required. and the redesigned rooms were a fresh experience.

If you have to play a Super Metroid Rom Hack, Then this is the one to go for.

Have Fun.

Absolutely Insane with the concept. I could never know how these guys did what was done.
Although, they need to work out some of the kinks, such as softlocks, and "non-pro" Support, as well as a clear sign of what acheivements need what to happen.

Btw, The Clear time is how long it took me to clear 500 rooms.

This is a unforgiving, yet somewhat fun and lighthearted hack, that does more wrong than right. Most of the hints and tidbits are replaced with sometimes humorous notes and jokes, such as the scene of samus landing, before entering the starting area, and getting any item, but good luck getting said items. The path to get ANY item is usually criptic, difficult, unexpected, or completely out of the way. For example, the morph-ball. You need to go UP the chozodia shaft above the start, and shoot at a wall which isn't conveyed to be destructable. And without it, you can't even PLAY the game, let alone beat it. This happens throughout the whole hack. It also relies TOO MUCH on Trial & Error. Save areas WILL screw you over, so save states often, But not TOO often. But here are some usefull tips before i move on further. If you're in kraid, or "Cremo" (Great name btw), before you have the high jump, ice beam, bombs, and super missiles, DO NOT SAVE OR MAKE A STATE, YOU WILL BE STUCK. And if you have the gravity suit, DON'T LOOP AROUND TO THE RIDLEY ELEVATOR AGAIN. Once you get to the worm mini-boss, the room will be the vanilla version, with no way out but down...into a crash. Other than that tho, I haven't ran into any other parts like this.

I only put 3 hours 30 minutes into it, with 8 minutes between of my last save, and the worm crash.
That doesn't mean that this hack is an unbearable peice of Shite, I actually quite enjoyed this hack, mostly for its humor, and the level design was (noticably) trying to be as creative and unique as possible, which really pulled off (EXCEPT SOMETIMES >:[ ). Despite my rating with the pre-shot item balls (what are those actually called btw), I would give this hack a 4/10.

Btw, this hack requires extensive knowledge of exploits, such as "same wall jumping" and "Infinite bomb jumping", and the points it made, like the plasma beam, gravity suit, & space jump being obtainable and usable, is a bit of a stretch. Items obtainable "As one pleases", Simply untrue for the most part. and Exploration stating to be rewarded, when it's literaly required in order to get anywhere, item-wise and Location wise.

This is not definate however, as i am yet to complete this game, and sadly i must restart from the beggining, aswell as playing as a...well...metroid noob when it comes to "Pro Strats". If you speed run MZM, then this game might be easier for you, but as a mostly casual metroid-er, I don't know.

I would call this a Mix in genre, being close towards Exploration, Challenge, Spoof, and Vanilla + (Current genre as of writing), With the difficulty being Veteran, despite being able to, and i quote, "Die less" (whenever you get an E-tank, it says "Now you can die less". I actually mean that the enemies do less damage for the most part).
