A new classic has just been born.
But was it absolutely necessary to hide Charge Beam so well?
Super Metroid: Ascent by Benox50 [SM Exploration], rated by ocesse on Aug 20, 2021 (Star Star Star Star Star )

Coming from Return of Justin, Ascent is like a rainbow in a picnic.

I like that each room is unique and colorful, with its names that sometimes is an ingenious way to give you clues and I also like that the puzzles have different ways of being solved, even if you think enough you can do sequence break, although of course, because the game is divided into 3 areas, what you can advance is only limited to the same area.
Although I do not like the black fog in some rooms that covers the bottom of the screen, it is not a factor that demerit in the least the excellent work that the creator of this game has done.
In short, a fairly large game with good puzzles that make you think to find the solution, new game techniques, quite colorful and use of FX, it has been a fascinating experience and different from any other hack I have played.
I recommend that you also play it and enjoy it !!

Very good Hack, I liked his music, in certain places it makes you feel scared. I really appreciate the creators who try something new, for that reason the magnet item seems interesting to me. It has good graphics and good level design, I did not see an error in tiling, only an enemy that walked upside down. I'm going to play it again to try to get 100% of items. I really enjoyed this game and for me, it deserves 5 magnets!!

I have no words to tell you how much I love this game, is a masterpiece.

Please play this game, you will not be disappointed!

Temple of the Winds v2.1 is a game that has amazing graphics, custom enemies, a lot of gfx additions and an awesome Mode 7 background that serves as an introduction to the last part of the game, in addition to an excellent soundtrack. Play this game, but please read the manual first so that you understand your mission better.
Ancient Chozo by Albert V. [SM Vanilla+], rated by ocesse on Jun 28, 2020 (Star Star Star Star Star )

This game is wonderful, it integrates perfectly into the Project Base and you will have a wide variety of movements at your disposal, it even has a secret movement that you will love to discover.
Overgrown vegetation and very old Chozo statues adorn an environment that amazes you. The backgrounds are detailed and in armony with the old Chozo culture, to which we add a very careful color palette and enemies according to their environment.
You enjoy wandering around all corners of the planet trying to find each and every one of the hidden Items and face the entire legion of enemies, large and small.
Getting the last item in the escape sequence is a great help in finding your way to the exit and what a pressure you feel for an unfriendly environment.
It is difficult to find another game with such extraordinary graphics, even in the entire SNES game catalog, Albert V. has truly created a work of art.
This game is a gem, I recommend that you play it, as you will enjoy it as I do.
Eris by Digital_Mantra [SM Exploration], rated by ocesse on Jun 26, 2020 (Star Star Star Star Star )

I'm not going to lie, this game is hard, but as you advance and get more items, the difficulty becomes more tolerable. This game has excellent graphics, very alien-style and as you progress through the game you want to know what the next room will be like. The entrance to the final area of the game gives you a taste of what lies ahead, some outstanding graphics and great music create an atmosphere that causes you apprehension and fear. And the ending seemed epic to me, please play this game and don't let the initial difficulty stop you.
Super Metroid: Hydellius by TROM [SM Unknown], rated by ocesse on Jun 18, 2020 (Star Star Star Star Star )
66% in 15:52
Hydellius Ultimate is a hack that I really enjoyed playing, custom gfx, very good level design. The graphics, different enemies and the atmosphere of each area, make it really feel like a very different planet from Zebes. I liked the amount of mini puzzles you have to solve to obtain Items and advance in the game. You can tell that TROM used a lot of time to design the gates system, although sometimes a bit confusing, they give the game a longer duration. I got lost several times and I enjoyed finding the place where I had to go and after 15 hours, I managed to finish it with 66% of Items collected.
Good work, TROM, I recommend this game and I will give it 4 out of 5 orbs.
Return of Justin by squishy_ichigo [SM Incomplete], rated by ocesse on Jun 14, 2020 (Star Star Star Star Star )

Return of Justin TP2 - v3.0 is a hack with graphics in the purest style of ZX Spectrum, the level design remembers NES Metroid 1. At first they may seem like simple graphics, but as you progress through the game, you really come to love them. This hack has a very good progress rate and the order in which you get the items is excellent. The only criticism I have towards the game is that it does not have a properly designed ending, since it ends when you enter Chozodia, although you already know this because it's in the Incomplete category.
I really liked this game and I will give it 4 Orbs in its own category.
