Description
‘Cliffhanger’ has a double meaning. One is the primary focus of wall jumping, lots of wall jumping. The second is uncovering the truth behind your mission, for each map station you encounter, you will also receive a Chozo Lore.
You must find them all to put the story together. Cliffhanger is a savestate hack without savestations. It requires copious amounts of mockball, speedball, fast mid air morphs, quick charging, ibj, hbj, and fast thinking.

There are several variants available:
- the original 2008 release
- a version with save stations added, which is more suitable for playing on console or otherwise without savestates.
- an "easy" version that is much more lenient on the advanced tricks required.

NOTE: In 2016, DMantra released a significant overhaul of this hack called Cliffhanger Redux, which you might want to play instead of this.

Some cool puzzles and a lot of great visuals. The difficulty is very punishing though, even in the version with save stations added: spikes, acid, heat runs, some death traps that you couldn't possibly avoid on your first attempt, etc. Not for the faint of heart, but there's lots more here than just another bullshit challenge hack.

Absolutely incredible graphically, setting the bar for creative and bizarre (in a good way) usage of Super Metroid's graphics. The short nature of the hack and the absurd difficulty bring it down a notch in my opinion, but it's still great and worth experiencing. You will have to improve your skills to see all of it unless you're already a top tier player, but it is worth it.

Hack's pretty and got nice challenges but it went bad before you fight Draygon etc. You're gonna get shit thrown at you like... Draygon, red key hunters that are stupid, golden torizo that might bug around and is invulnberable so you have to wait for RNG to happen... NOT creative... just a boring attempt to challenge you like the dev ran out of ideas.. so he just made it STUPID so it "fits" the hack :(

For anyone that likes a challenge, you should check this hack out tho... but I guess you could stop before fighting draygon! Savestating is a must!
