This is a complete Super Metroid hack, that alone makes it worth playing. It features new maps, layouts, item placements, and enemy placements. The areas in the beginning are similar to the originals, the farther you advance the more it changes. The difficulty is about the same as the original, and the puzzles are decent. There is a minor glitch where parts of the map won't be displayed when reloading your save.

Legacy is more or less the granddaddy of all super metroid hacks. As far as I'm aware, it's the first full hack to ever come out. Detail-wise, Legacy's constantly minimal design hasn't aged well, but that does NOT take away from the excellent simple and vanilla gameplay. I recommend this hack to everyone, but most especially to new hack players. Its excellent difficulty setting makes it a good foot-in-the-door for newer players.

A quality vanilla-ish hack that due to its age is missing some of the small touches we take for granted these days, but still holds up. It's relatively small and not very difficult, but still manages to give you freedom to explore.

Just... don't try to race it. It will end badly for you, trust me :(

Legacy is probably THE hack to get into playing Super Metroid hacks in general. There is not another hack out there which is so close to the original game in difficulty and length. It has aged pretty well for being one of the old hacks, because it kept to similar concepts of the original game. There is a silly map error, and some things might be a little obtuse to find, but otherwise it is a definite play.

The oldest hack worth playing. If you want to rediscover Super Metroid and feel like you're playing it again for the first time, this is the hack to do it with. It's very good for what it tries to be, but don't expect anything new or fancy. Only complaints I really have are that the level design is a bit blocky, and there is a little less potential for sequence breaking.

I tried to enjoy you Legacy. I really did. Too many contrived puzzles and stuff that ruins the flow of gameplay. The whole thing seems very obnoxious in the end.

While it's not the best overall in quality.. Legacy is still something I'd highly recommend to anyone who wants to play Super Metroid hacks. It's perfect for newer players.

Great hack for those who want to get into playing Super Metroid ROM hacks. Just don't expect too much change from the original game (especially since this hack came out about a whole decade ago).

I never could understand what the author was going for with this hack as far as level design. Super Metroid comfort food perhaps. It's got a rearrangement of the rooms, but no significant changes in the way Super Metroid's graphics assets were used originally and many rooms are extremely simple in that regard. For some this may be a plus since it is very close to the original game in design philosophy, but I don't like when a hack is close to retread of the original even if it does have a different layout. It's also unexpectedly short for a hack with a new map. I'd play it if it was my first time trying a Super Metroid hack before I knew of the other things which were possible, but not after.

One of the first hacks I played. Very nice entry hack together with SM: Nature.
