Odd Mission by Ing-ing [MZM Vanilla+], rated by Tipherath on Feb 03, 2019 (Star Star Star Star Star )

A pretty fun hack that's so bad designed at times that seems intentional, I think it is. The joke notes alleviate part of the frustration of not knowing what to do. Some things to consider while playing this hack are:
* In the first room where the mellow hives are and there's lava on the ground. There's a breakable block near the entrace to pass above them. Vertical bomb jumping may be required. If you decide to kill those two hives, the ones in the next room won't spawn, same if you kill those in the next room.
*You can softblock yourself if you try to get the Varia Suit without the Speed Booster and use the save station while searching for the suit.
*The Plasma Beam is very slow, but if you charge your shots you won't have that problem.

I would place the difficulty in Veteran

So, I've played both the 2.1 and 2.2 versions. While it looks like Samus' speed in the air is uncomfortable for some people, I admit that I was surprised by it too, but learned to enjoy it, it takes me back to a boosted somersault in SM. The Morph Ball physics were amazing too, I spent most of the playthrough in the Morph Ball just for the fun of it. The only thing that dragged my experience a little bit was that after defeating Ridley I didn't know where to go, completely forgetting that that was the mission of the game, but that's just me being a dumb-dumb.

Version 2.2 gets rid of all the minor errors, making the experience better. Overall, a pretty solid game. The only reason I don't give it a 5/5 is that the battle with the Chozo Guardian is pointless.
