So Little Garden was MetroidMst's entry for the A.N.T.I. contest held on Metroid Construction. It is relatively small due to limitations in the contest parameters. It also features custom music, custom items, custom bosses, and other strange and wonderful things.

Difficulty is above average. This is a MetroidMst hack, so expect some difficult sections and/or bosses to appear.

(v1.0) Possibly one of the best minihacks around, and definitely the best thing MetroidMst has done yet. Manages to find that delicate balance of stupid, unfair, and fun, and yet still doesn't overstay its welcome. Plenty of cool new things, including bosses, music, HUDs and graphics, and it'd be worth checking out just for that. However Mst manages to also pull off a good hack in the process. I'd almost consider rating this 5 stars, if not for a few bugs about the place that need squashing. I don't care if the map borking is in your story. It's bad.

One of the best hacks by Mst. It features many interesting bosses that are all shaktool related in some way or another (except one). However the grapple physics are wonky and racing this hack is a fun, but painful experience.

This hack belongs amongst the best. It tries to be so many different things, and it succeeds at basically all of them. Atmospheric, frustrating, unique, and fun, SLG does so many things well that it's hard to identify things to be objectively critical of. If you were to try to make a hack and it came up just short of SLG, you'd have done a really good job. Highly recommend giving this one a shot. You won't be disappointed. Excellent soundtrack as well. 9.5/10

Unique and frustrating.

- custom music. I don't think any of it is from Metroid, it's pretty funny. Dire Dire Docks is beautiful as always
- custom tileset for a strange mish-mash of metal and forest
- the area and item names are fun and sometimes straight up memes
- final boss gimmick is a strong nod to Prime 3
- lots of secrets, many I'm sure I missed
- new mechanics, like the rocket ball's climb and frozen enemies breaking blocks is really cool
- custom HUD is neat
- so much Shaktool

- map bug. Make a save state after you use a save station and reload that when you die if you don't want to "cheat" - playing normally will break your map
- Dire Dire Docks wears on you after awhile, as does the tileset
- Spaghetti-O spam to the point of lagging the game gets REAL OLD REAL FAST
- too much grapple for how slow it is
- a lot of vertical level design with wall jump removed makes the map slow and at times frustrating to navigate
- some of the bosses are just too tanky and too spammy, missiles go from powerful tool to fart cannon

Conclusion: SLG has a lot of unique and fun features that make it worth playing, but expect some heavy frustration the further you go.
