The best Metroid hack I have ever played. This is a full length hack with multiple endings and a completely redesigned world. I loved the music ported over from AM2R. Beating the game on normal difficulty is about as hard as beating Metroid Fusion. Hard mode is renamed True Ending mode and basically acts as a more difficult "second quest"; the route through the game is changed and items and bosses are encountered in a different order. True Ending mode requires shinesparking, is more difficult and was a blast to play through. I liked having the extra incentive to play through a harder version of the game on a second playthrough for the True Ending.

Great to finally see a full length Metroid II hack. The hack is non-linear and the power ups could mostly be acquired in any order. The main challenge is navigating the world; I actually got stuck about half-way through and restarted. I didn't really mind this and I used what I learned on my first attempt to try a better route for my second attempt. I got hooked pretty quickly and had a great time until the end. Hope to see more Metroid II hacks in the future.
