Pretty fun little hack with a swell sense of exploration and the custom gfx/music to back it all up. I approve.

A very pretty and well designed hack. It was updated during the contest to fix most of the bugs that existed. However there is still one music bug that exists when going through an area transition when custom music is playing. The hack is large, but sadly too much so. Many rooms felt empty and pointless, which made exploration boring and almost annoying, considering that most of the rooms were massive. Regardless, it is a fun hack to play. The research area was by far my favorite part of the hack.

Really good hack with great music and customized graphics, BUT too much backtracking for my liking (even with the shortcuts), Ridley was not fun at all, and it ended way too soon.

Mostly well built world, though there are a few missing textures, thankfully only one in a position that decieves the player. I managed to avoid the Ridley fight in my playthrough. Made for a contest involving making it past the obstacle to get the item to get past the obstacle, and performs this in a very enjoyable (Albeit aggravating) manner.

AWESOME HACK! I find it amazing how much work you guys put in here, I wish there were more GBA hacks like this!

One small issue is that when you go into Headquarters from the Command Center, the music suddenly stops until you reach Mother Brain. I realized if I dont go into that room where it goes to command center, the music stays in tact.

A pretty decent hack in all regards. I'll start with the positives. The music was pretty good, and enjoyable throughout. The visuals were pretty nice as well. I liked having a new planet to explore, that had a great mix of nature and technology.

But as with all hacks, there's downsides. I'll start with my biggest gripe, the room sizes. A lot of the rooms seemed like they were large and obtuse for no reason other than "Because I can".

This wouldn't be too bad if it was limited to a few instances, but it's pretty much every room. It bloats the areas more than they need to be.

A lot of the rooms were large and hard to quickly navigate through, and this ended up making the shortcuts end up the only way I'd want to keep exploring the area. I don't think it's a good thing when I want to avoid traveling through rooms more than once in an exploration based hack.

Another thing is, it ended a lot sooner than I expected. It felt abrupt. Just walking then bam! Suddenly, final boss. The escape was also slightly disappointing.

All in all, a great Zero Mission hack with a few issues. 4/5, I'll be playing this again in the future.
