Super metroid familiar by Tundain [SM Exploration], rated by neen on Nov 07, 2022 (Star Star Star Star Star )

[played on 1.0]

very nice hack, world feels lorge because many rooms are very tall or wide, often in the opposite way the corresponding vanilla room is, so it has a touch of Rotation feel which is cool.

went back in after completing to try for hundo. so far: 83%

cool sequence breaks are possible. my playthrough was not vanilla boss order

(played normal mode)

this is a good bit of fun and mostly a good time, though you can die easily due to lack of i-frames (on spikes, for example). i was not able to do either a shinespark or standard ice zebetite skip and so had to refill (had 30 missiles). first playthrough was kdrp boss order (never got gravity suit), though i will play this again and do dprk.

very cool hack. i got lost and confused a bit (does the infection mechanic do anything?) but did not have to resort to watching a video of someone else play it =]

My original completion was 68% in 9:55.

This is an incredible hack with new mechanics, a huge world to explore, and tons of secrets to find that will keep you occupied and having fun for a long time. I don't want to spoil anything. Just play it yourself!

another great quick play hack like the original CRE. cool resprites all around. i thought i was stuck right after getting morph for a silly reason, but was not.

i got stuck in the beginning with some gates that close quickly preventing you from going in some doors, so i just kago'd a horizontal gate to proceed. no idea what the actual solution was. found some broken scrolling but nothing too bad. there are a lot of rooms whose only purpose seems to be to fill space. i got lost often but that's probably just me. overall, very nice hack, i had fun.

it's certainly larger than you think it would be based on other reviews. (other people called it short, or small; i think it's decently sized but it feels small because of how fast you can get around). a lot of rooms look the same. but overall it has cool ideas and still has that metroid feel: i got lost a few times. this was a nice easy playthrough for a sunday afternoon and i enjoyed it, even if it was a bit too easy. could probably remove most of the energy/missile refills. tourian and the escape were the most interesting parts for me.

i downloaded this in 2019 but for some reason only just got around to playing it now (probably because i just forgot i had it).
Legacy by Banana Oyaji [SM Exploration], rated by neen on Dec 03, 2022 (Star Star Star Star Star )

pretty good for an ancient hack. not without its share of bad design though. pretty sure i sequence broke early on for power bombs. there is one puzzle that seems like a required mockball but isn't. grapple was one of the last items i found. there's one false door puzzle that kept me from finding progression for a long time.

its progression can be confounding: i am pretty sure that the intended boss order was not kpdr, but i ended up killing them in that normal vanilla order out of pure chance from stumbling around.
Screwed Chopped and Restitched by Noxus, InsomniaDX [SM Exploration], rated by neen on Nov 30, 2022 (Star Star Star Star Star )

used save states because i'm a coward. this is weird, cryptic, and has rooms connected which should not logically be contiguous in two dimensions; has some cool ideas. the lack of map is annoying, but it forced me to somewhat learn the layout without relying on one.

i believe i got softlocked at crocomire because their projectiles stopped dropping missiles once i was in health bomb range.

worse than the first. a huge chunk of the rooms are exactly the same. i got so bored that i reverted to an old save to do gt code just to tap out of the true experience. big hopes for number 3

rounded down from 2.5 orbs (40% perceived perfection)

this is: a somewhat challenging, absurd, strange, and frustrating half-hack, but i still had some sort of fun.

tried exploring oob but gave up. i wonder if you could get into the vanilla game somehow. that's about the only fun to be had here. i hope 4 is better
420 spike landing site cre edit insta death barf kraid grapple clip hack by H A M [SM Spoof], rated by neen on Oct 02, 2022 (Star Star Star Star Star )

this hack is exactly what it says on the tin, and can provide several minutes of entertainment. it's a weird spoof hack. a completely vanilla ceres station existing in this is pointless.
