This review is very late but I want to finally say that I was patiently waiting for this hack ever since I had seen it in some of the screenshots during development, and I am very happy with the outcome. This hack not only fulfilled all of my expectations but far, far exceeded them. What Digital Mantra has managed to create was so impactful I couldn't stop thinking about what I played by the end. From the visuals, to the refined gameplay, the lore, everything felt so good. This isn't just a rom hack but something truly special and unlike anything else I've played on this site.

So from the bottom of heart, thank you for this brutally wonderful masterpiece and I can't wait to see what is next from you! Also those are some very cool area names, my favorite being Andavald ;)

While not a perfect hack, it was a nice short hack that you can pick up and play. What I really like about this hack is you don't need glitches to complete.

Also the ripper climb is not that bad, yes it took a little bit but it was a nice challenge. Zincoshine is just greatly exaggerating how bad it actually is, which it isn't.

Overall, it was fun despite the glitches of some of the sprites. I also chuckled at the item names.

This was a hack I really enjoyed. It's also vanilla which I absolutely don't have a problem with, as it gives me that feeling
like I'm playing back in 2007 when I discovered Rom Hacks. It also reminds me of Super Metroid Legacy which once again isn't a bad thing.

It does have some problems like tiling errors and square level design, the map doesn't show where you are sometimes due to
how big the maps are, and forcing you to fight Draygon with those turrets constantly shooting you is always a huge pain.

I can recommend this hack to those who have already played a few hacks here as it does have a slightly higher difficulty
than the original. All in all, I really had fun with this one. I say if your like me who enjoys Vanilla hacks like this, go for it, you won't regret it!

I wanted to really like this hack, but there was a lot of questionable design decisions
that made me almost want to never finish it, the beginning especially.
Once you get bombs, your supposed to go back into the Red Brinstar area as there is a hidden path.
Due to the nature of how seemingly non-linear this hack can get, I ended up going down into the underwater area, unintentionally
locking myself down there until I either had to kill myself to return to a previous save or find the High-Jump Boots.

The hack really opens up once you do figure out where to go and I did end up enjoying it a lot more.
But unfortunately I can't give it a higher rating due to the permastucks, the broken level design that can easily get you lost if you aren't skilled
enough. I also tryed this on BSNES and the graphics glitches to the point of unplayability.

TL;DR Fun but very flawed.
