Innovative and fun little hack.
At the beginning you'll wonder what you actually have to do, but once you defeat the first ghost you'll get the hang of it. I really enjoyed finding them all. Just the final boss is a little bit broken. You can just kill him in a few seconds by staying on the platform and rapidly firing your beam. xD

Play this one. I ended up laughing so hard when I saw the ending.

Nice hack. Sometimes you really have to think on how to get the hats and what you can do with the equipment you have at the moment. Since there isn't much time investment, I recommend this to everyone who has half an hour to kill. Just the last hat is a little bit too difficult for beginners in my opinion, but you should get it after a few tries.
Searching for Items by Terimakasih [SM Exploration], rated by Mar99troid on Oct 08, 2017 (Star Star Star Star Star )

This was the first exploration hack I played and I really enjoyed it.
It only uses vanilla graphics and elements, but in a good way. Yes, it is too easy sometimes, but it really captures the feeling of the original and you should definitely play this, if you like searching for items (as the title already says).
The only thing I didn't like was that Plasma and Ice Beam were hidden extremely well, too well. I ended up backtracking and searching everywhere for them.

In my opinion the hack was decent, but nothing special. It made some things right, but some things wrong. Let me start:

The fact that you got a ton of missiles from the start was very wierd. What I like about Metroid is the process of becoming stronger and stronger with the time and that killed it a bit for me.
However I like that you can kinda choose where to go first. I ended up going to Draygon with few equipment and powersuit while I was really overpowered when I entered the "murder ship" (LOL) and totally destroyed Phantoon.
On the other hand the level design wasn't that great. The rooms felt uninspired. And the most annoying and repetitive thing were the gray doors. You have to clear rooms ALL THE TIME to progress. There's even a big giant room you have to clear from enemies during the escape sequence (!!!) which was the reason I finally ended up closing the emulator without finishing the hack like Zexis, also because I went the wrong way, wasted a lot of time and got confused. The creator should definitely have blocked off more areas during the escape sequence.
The only part which really kept me going was one surprising and thrilling part in the toxic tank. That was really awesome and fun. I won't spoil it here of course.
Speaking of the toxic tank, backtracking to get items in this hack is HELL. The areas aren't connected very well which means that sometimes you have to go back for 15 minutes just to get some items you remembered from earlier just to go back 15 minutes once again. I don't know anymore how many times I had to go through the whole tank just to get somewhere.

TL;DR: I don't know if I should recommend this. If you're really out of hacks to play, you can give this a try, but expect a lot of tedious room clearing, backtracking and questionable design choices.
I'll give this a 3/5 though, because I still had some fun while playing this.

[Version 1.0]
I see a lot of potential in this one, but in this state I can't recommend this hack. There are too many ways to get stuck in the wall, the door connections are very questionable, especially the door in the crashing site that leads to another door in the crashing site, and the ending was very... unexpected. But I had some fun while playing this. The graphics look really neat and the room design isn't that bad. But it DEFINITELY needs some polishing and more content before I can recommend this to anyone.

An unfinished hack that doesn't even work correctly and isn't very long. Don't waste your time playing this.
Maze by devonodev [SM Unknown], rated by Mar99troid on Oct 08, 2017 (Star Star Star Star Star )

Just a short maze you can clear in literally one minute. It would be fun if the maze was bigger, but in this state it's just a concept of something that could be cool. Don't waste your time and hard drive space on this one.
