The perfect way to replay through Super Metroid if you've gotten bored of the original game after playing numerous times, again and again. This changed up a lot and I personally loved every change, even if I got lost a few times- lol.

Thank you so much for making this hack, Albert V.

I just completed Mintroid, I thought it was a pretty good hack, although ZM blue oddity during transitons, and as Alexman25 said above, some ugly palettes, but good job nevertheless.

A great remake of the first game, got stuck underneath the Tourian bridge even after beating both bosses, but nevertheless it was great.

I loved that it included the original "save" system NEStroid had.

My updated review of Return to Zebes (2.4.6)

Game time: 0.40.04
Percentage: 56%

Found some cool sequence breaks that let me beat the game really quickly with few items, I got loads of missiles and etanks though, but my first playthough of this version was fun and could probably be optimized, I got plasma after wave then fought ridley, got gravity and went back to ship- so I barely played the whole new version- lol.

OLD POST:
Overall a pretty fun hack, although I wish there was more. There were a couple of tiling errors and there, and some of the bosses were a bit too difficult for me, I found that this was an overall fun hack.

One last note: That music was AWESOME!...


-See you next mission-

This hack was decent, however- the more and more I played it, the more I just wanted to play the original Super Metroid. I watched Alexman25's video on this hack, and had a bad first impression, upon playing it myself I noticed a few things were fixed (ie. Norfair elevator) but some things like the cutscene after boss deaths were completely fucked. Sad to see no Phantoon replacement either.

Overall, hack was okay but made me realize SM doesn't need a remake, it's fine as is and would really only benefit from a graphic overhaul. Just play the original SM.

Animals "Saved"- lol

P.S. Please ask before using others' gfx work- :P

COULDN'T COMPLETE! (Completion Time is the time at my final save-point)

Plasma Pirates at blue ship gate couldn't be killed due to no plasma-

I liked the hack until Pirate Ship, only real problems were varia transformation bug and lava effects appearing out of lava- I was able to kill Ridley first which was awesome.

I would've given 5 stars, but the Pirate Ship segment was just the original, but filled with Plasma Pirates and was unable to complete escape sequence.
