Metroid Zero Mission: OHKO by Conner [MZM Challenge], rated by Roija on Jul 14, 2022 (Star Star Star Star Star )

As expected, pretty difficult. Most hardcore parts are Mother Brain's room (the way to get to her is insane, the moment when you dps her is actually ez) and the final escape mission I'd say, even though you can safe the last 2 grey pirates. Kraid/Ridley/Mecharidley are ez if you have enough super missiles.

I encountered several "issues" though :
-Ridley can grab you and it DOESNT KILL you. You just lose HP like normal.
-Another problem (maybe it's intended by the author, or maybe my game just went crazy) : the way to Ridley via the Fly (Imago) was BLOCKED. I just couldn't go this way : the plant at the ceiling near the elevator just wouldnt disappear after falling on the ground when dead, even though I did what you are supposed to do (ie take elevator twice). I even went back to Norfair and Brinstar, yet this path was still blocked. It doesn't soft lock you, you just have one less super missiles tank (which is extra relevant at this point cause you have 0, so Ridley is pretty much forced with max 4 super missiles instead of 6 [if you don't take the tank in Crateria if you have done Kraid before][once you are in Ridley, you can't leave without beating Ridley]). Long paragraph to say a path is blocked. This makes it so that ONCE YOU LEFT RIDLEY (through the path with the 2 morph ball accelerator machines), YOU CANT GO BACK TO RIDLEY without Power bombs. It's important to know if you want screw attack without being forced to go back all the way to upper Brinstar to get the varia suit (to take the path behind the hi-jump)

Challenge similar to zeroing the game but a bit faster since you have firepower.

Tip for those who are considering playing it : take a deep breath before Mother brain. I don't think Kraid first or Ridley first is important. If you want some motivation, know that the final screen has something special ;)

Very good challenge, I recommend

Fun hack, does what it's supposed to do ie alleviate boredom (nice one btw)
I really liked the ost. Some new areas are just incredible visually.The magic/fantasy vocabulary is funny even if it is just a detail.
I don't think the level design is really interesting though. But there is room for quite some optimization/speedrun (if you are really bored)
A huge amount of work, props. I recommend
