Sigma++ by Silver_Skree [SM Incomplete], rated by Sapphron on Jul 14, 2019 (Star Star Star Star Star )

This was a delightful hack to play through! The level design was really nice in some parts, the speed at which you gain bluesuit was very good, progression was nice, custom suit colors and hud, etc.
I definitely recommend trying this out if you have an hour to spare! You won't regret it!
Sadly, no ending though.

It's good. Felt like a new experience with Tourian and the areas were very well-crafted and clearly thought out very carefully. Highly recommend.

Low% is accounted for in this hack, which earns it a big thumbs-up in my book.
The room names are very unique
Respin
Door unlock system and warp stations for each zone
Good item progression
Lots of puzzles that make you think

Play this.

This is definitely one of my favorite hacks.
The title is misleading, as this is actually a halfhack of Super Metroid: Life, but it's still extremely well done.
TROM's unique and astonishing graphical abilities strike again, and exploration is phenomenal when you're able to look at so many things. The progression isn't very linear, so you can go to many places.
I highly recommend this hack to anyone who has a few days to spare, you won't regret it.

I really liked this hack. It has tons of tech and some really odd but good puzzles. If you are willing to learn new tech, this is the hack for you (and Contamination, but that's harder).

Bosses are hard, but if you take them on late enough they shouldn't be too much of a problem. The item progression is unlike any other that I've seen so far, it was really creative. The exploration and possibilities for sequence breaks were also great. Highly recommend this hack but watch out for bosses.

Only thing I didn't like is how long you have to wait for an important item, but considering this is Project Base it makes sense.
Tourian gates didn't take too long to find and the game opens up a ton after supers.
Escape was really nice.

This was pretty good. The progression paths will confuse you so much at some parts and most of the tiling is atrocious (mostly fixed in my patch), but it has some really nice ideas and good gameplay.

This is indeed a challenge hack and savestates are probably needed for some parts. Tons of beautiful art is on display in this masterpiece. Heat runs, interesting item progression, difficult puzzles, a pretty big world, and much more. If you consider yourself a good player, you should consider checking out this hack as it'll teach you some stuff.
Super short charge is necessary.

This was a good one.
Item collection only goes up to 76%.
Twin doors weren't too bad even though the planet was pretty massive. Item progression was cool for some parts and I really liked the heavier physics.

A certain necessary item took forever and the beam combination quirk was kinda cool. I felt lost for a really long time. But that's good.
I will say, this has the worst Tourian I've gone through. Went on for way too long and there was nothing special. Also a fight can just be skipped if you're observant enough.

NOTE: Newest version is on page 17 of the forum page, v2.5 Easy
[time was in-game]
This hack was probably the most interesting one I've played. I played on v2.45 Easy because I didn't know what to expect in Normal or Hard.
I think people with some patience should give this hack a try/playthrough. It's definitely an interesting ride. I came out of this a different person.

Pros:
-The level design is decent for the most part
-Tons of areas to go, 8 total planets
-699 total rooms (on Hard)
-Hint room that gives the general area for your next major item
-Many items and puzzles
-Challenging, even on Easy Mode
-Ammo/hp pickups were increased (on Easy)
-Special morph ball item combo that works pretty great
-Custom HUD and new item names
-Custom bosses

Cons:
-The massive endgame door hunt
It's about 3 times as obnoxious on Normal or Hard because you have to find 24 of these stupid doors in stupid locations. But hey, at least there's a map.
-Some enemies hit like tanks
-Few permastucks (to be fair, you have to try hard to get stuck)
-A tight heat run, but that can be a plus if you like those
-Progression is extremely convoluted, stuff is hidden behind normal-looking walls and other awesome places
-Suitless underwater is prevalent
-Only one ammo per upgrade
-No bomb jumping (well you can but I won't tell you how)and no mockballing
-Earpiercing Maridia music
-Almost no sequence breaks, path is extremely linear
-Area names/item names are unpronounceable
-Only 9 e-tanks
-Insane amounts of farming

There are tens of things to say about this hack that I can't really remember off of the top of my head.

Give this hack a go. You might regret it but it's an interesting journey through and through.

This hack has some REALLY cool-looking rooms, but the progression is kind of weird and you can't really figure out where to go in the beginning + too many missile doors.

This was, well, interesting.
The different paths are really cool (I took the shortest, without knowing it)but after a while, it can get confusing because you don't know where to go. I probably spent an hour scouting around for things but never got any progression because I was already done in the game's mind!
I really liked the palettes though and where some items were placed. I did sequence break one item that helped a lot, so there are breaks to be made!

Wow. This hack was special.
The grappling wasn't creative and you had cramped corridors with single blocks, not good design.
Boss battles were kind of stupid, no difficulty in them at all.
If you want to practice your grapple skills, there are better hacks, but this one works...I suppose.

Everything else was nice. Maridia wasn't as bad as people made it out to be and Tourian was the second best I've played in a hack, only to Redesign Axeil.

This hack was kind of fun, but it'd be hellish if you've only played through vanilla a couple of times. Norfair's heated sections kind of ruined the darkness as you can see where you are using the lights (including LN)and bosses were easily visible.

Decent for a contest hack. Came across a hardlock caused by death and a crash on one of the crystals. You can't adjust your controls so you have to play with default, which knocked a star off by itself because it's so uncomfortable for me to play the way I'm forced to.
And a really weird ending + lag everywhere.

Sure, it's a new experience, but hardly anything is changed. The door warps make no sense and just confuse you. A certain early sequence break is hard to find and if you do find it, you'll find it after it's useful...and you won't ever play it again to get it early.
The "Rocket Ball" feature did not work AT ALL on my SNES Classic so I was forced to carry a shinespark suit all the way to Draygon from the surface.
Not worth a playthrough imo.

Super Metroid: Hard Mode (Other M) by Wildfire [SM Challenge], rated by Sapphron on Jul 14, 2019 (Star Star Star Star Star )
No completion stats.
This hack was originally going to get two stars.
But, there was a fatal flaw that the creator did not account for.
Upon breaking MB's glass and re-entering the room like I did to refill on supers, the missile refill does not work.
Mother Brain 1 has too much health to be killed by 10 missiles and 10 supers. I saved before, and now I am softlocked.
You'd be so wrong assuming I'd go through another 4 hours to finish this hack. It is not worth it AT ALL. Do not play this. The hud is glitchy, you only have 99 energy throughout the entire hack, escaping LN is absolutely stupid, etc.
Use your time some other way.

So. Many. Spikes.
This hack will throw constant shot block walls at you, messy suit palettes, terrible design, and there are probably around a MILLION 60 damage spikes everywhere. And super blocks, bomb blocks, powerbomb blocks, crumble blocks, so many blocks that the game gets overloaded and you can't shoot anymore blocks, this hack has it all.
Stay away from this hack, I'm warning you.

This hack is a reaaal challenge.
There are spikes placed in strategic spots, there are (almost)zero opportunities for sequence breaks, hellruns to ridley and all the way through maridia, gates blocking almost every path, buffed enemies, buffed bosses, a hellish mother brain 2 & 3 fight and a super difficult escape (if you don't know what do to right away)
12 hours rta, 141 deaths. Savestateless.
If you are looking for a challenge that will take you forever and frustrate you to no end, this is the hack for you.
And by the way, most items are hidden so well you can't find them without watching the 100% playthrough.

Lives up to being a challenge hack, however tons of things are sequence-breakable and you can beat the game very quickly. Some of the design choices forbid you from going certain ways, and it's really obnoxious at times. Do not recommend unless...nah there's no reason.

Your typical boss rush hack. Nothing special. Items are handed to you and you have to sit through quite a bit of fanfare.

Precise jumps, if you make a mistake it's all over.

A frustrating hack that forces a few frame-perfect tricks, not worth your time.

Plain unfun. Can be helpful if learning how the Ice SBA works...?

Even worse than mockmetroid 1 & 2. Plenty of collision bs that has to be avoided and invisible spikes. Do NOT try this out, please
Oh, and there's a section that relies entirely on timing (that you can't control)to get through.

Invisible spikes :D a great example of what to NOT do as a hack.

Got stuck within the first ten minutes, and couldn't figure out where to go. I was probably just being stupid though.

After Draygon you can literally exit and play the game normally.
Ends at grav.

Please don't. There are like 4 mockball rooms and then it's your usual mother brain and unchanged escape.

This is your typical halfhack. It has bad colors, a red Crateria like every other one before it, spikes jabbing you around every corner, fake items, forced gauntlet, permastucks, etc. It is NOT a hack you play if you want to blow off some steam. There are gates in many different places making progression almost completely linear with the exception of a couple items. If you stop paying attention for a little bit, you might fall into one of the tens of death traps that were set, many of them being in Norfair and Maridia. The thing that probably bothered me the most was forcing the player to go through as much of a room as possible to get to the other side. What I mean by this is morph ball mazes, blocks placed just as obstructions so you can’t get to where you want to go the short way, invisible blocks, and other things.
In short, play this hack if you want to be confused and annoyed. And yes, it is fully beatable.

Please don't play this hack. No save stations, a disgustingly bright final area, unbelievable requirements for progress, hidden passages up the ass, etc.
