As Super Metroid is one of my favorite games of all time, and it makes me bit sad sad that this genre-defining classic hasn't seen a remake since Seriously, it's one of the handful of retro games who's mechanics haven't aged almost at all, and yet the only official version of the game that exists is the original from 24 years ago.
Having a fair bit of experience with the Unity Game Engine in which I am developing my own gameI've considered attempting a fan remake myself, perhaps something along the lines of the fantastic AM2R which you you can still find with a brief google search, BTW.
But I'd rather my work not suffer the same DCMA-based fate as the aforementioned love-letter to the franchise. Well, within the last few months, I've discovered the wonderful world of ROM-hacking, Super Metroid in particular, and I've been dripping with excitement ever since. I've played through a handful of hacks and even applied a few tweaks for my own enjoyment. For the record, I'm not new to the world of emulation for retro-games, having a moderate library of classic titles and others from my own childhood.
I use LaunchBox to manage this library, along with my games from Steam and other places. Unlike the vanilla version of the emulator, it makes a handful of improvements and adds some new controls to the game by means of memory manipulation and the occasional input spoof during runtime.
On top of that, Snes9X already has a number of featured to improve the visuals and sound of the game, and this copy of the emulator is optimized for Super Metroid by default. Each major feature listed below can be enabled or disabled in a special config file. More on that later. I've added a number of additional controls to the game. This system works by hijacking joypads 2, 3, and 4 in the emulator, so they do work with hardware controllers.
The programs's input configuration screen reflects these new controls.
Seriously, you have no idea what a difference it makes to have the missiles and super missiles on quick-fire buttons.
The combat in the game is SO much more fun and fluid when you don't have to stop what your doing and switch weapon modes constantly. Not to mention that having the super missiles on a hot button makes them a much more tactical option for combat, instead of them being the "OH CRAP! The grapple beam benefits even more so, since using the grapple beam prevents you from using your other weapons, and the grapple beam is not the best in a combat situation.
On a quick-fire button, you can now flip between shooting and grappling seamlessly. All of this opens up a lot more options for daring manuveres and badass moments in your gameplay.Sponsored links:.

The level layout has completely changed and the level graphics have all been changed as well. Metroid This hack changes the room layouts, enemy placements, and palettes in the original Metroid.
Unfortunately the map and item placements have not been changed, so any person who knows where to go in the original game will know where to go in this hack. Metroid Adventure This is a hack of the original game Metroid.
It still preserves the best of Metroid but gets a new twist that still feels much like the original. The game still uses the same rooms as in the original Metroid. The brother game to Metroid Adventure, Super Metroid 8-Bit uses the same map basically but different rooms themed after rooms in Super Metroid. Two of the rooms in Norfair were edited in minor ways, none visible two bomb-able floors were made unbreakable. Items are moved, puzzles are changed, and there is no such thing as a dead end.
It is hard both mentally and physically, but I avoided such design flaws as having to bomb arbitrary points in the floor or placing enemies so that you get smacked in the face on the way in or out of rooms.
Also, minor text and graphics hacks were done, but mostly just for packaging purposes, As in, the title screen was changed, mostly.

So why faster? Because you should. Rules: Defeat 5 main bosses in 5 distinct areas then head to the final boss as fast as possible. Each area can be completed in one run and in any order no need to go back and forth between areas to progress. Once the main boss is defeated, you must rush to the next area.
You don't have any time to spare as you usually do in most exploration oriented hacks as you instantly die when the timer reaches zero. If you exit an area before beating the main boss, you're doing it wrong. Advices: In case you're confused, look at the map - all area maps are available from the start. The game is designed for veterans in mind and a few techniques may be required depending on your current equipment mid-air morphing, crouch jumping, double bomb jumping, etc.
Areas feature varying degree of difficulty, if you keep dying or make slow progress, maybe start over with another area first - some areas are brutal when underequipped. There is a good chance that it will take you a few tries before completing the game under the time limit.
