This game looks amazing. I love the GFX choices and how it is a huge reference to the prime series. I loved and enjoyed this hack through and through and love the reward for those who are of the collecting type :3

I loved this hack from start to finish. I enjoyed the exploration of this game.. you aren't just tethered to one path that involves back and forthing between items. The escape was really good and long but was tense and had me worried when that timer was dipping below 1 minute xD... the only problem i had was where i had to go after getting space jump/Spazer/JumpBall but that's just my bad sense of direction.. All in all i give it a 5/5.. Damn that was amazing Real Red.. I really look forward to more stuff by you!
I actually plan on Let's playing this in the near future so i can show anyone i can this amazing hack.

(Version 1.5/Ultimate)
I liked this hack from start to about the finish.. I think there should have been some kind of ending as like Cirno says.. It just kinda ends.. The physics took a while to get used to but it wasn't that bad. The twin door idea was pretty cool in my opinion but could be seen as bad since it forces you to explore around.. this could also lead to items being discovered so i think it balances itself out so you are rewarded even if you don't immediately find the gate.. I really hope to see more stuff in the future Trom. All in all it was a pretty fun hack to play and explore.

As much as i enjoyed this hack and the great remixes it had.. Sadly the ending was fairly dissapointing but i won't spoil why. Anyways this is a fairly easy hack to play and does not require any advanced skills and i loved the water physics as they have been the only metroid water physics i have liked so all in all i like this hack but the ending is why im rating this 4/5.. Good hack Jefe. I would like to see more in the future.
Super Metroid Arcade : Endless mode by Lioran, Tewtal [SM Quick Play], rated by Steel Sparkle on Sep 01, 2018 (Star Star Star Star Star )
No completion stats.
A rather fun and addicting hack. The custom music is a nice addition and the randomness makes no 2 runs the same. Anyways if i had any gripe it would be Ridley. Even on easy mode it feels like he was placed in to be a run killer unless you have some sweet skills, get lucky with RNG and get the luxury gear before fighting him, or you are geared to the teeth with energy tanks you ain't winning that fight.Also the sand pits in the grapple hallway before Draygons eye door room can suck an ass without gravity. One wrong move and it's game over and it may not even be your fault!

Now i had fun with the game.. i have never played the normal Redesign because of how hard it is supposed to be... now i do have some mixed feelings on this game. Now for times sake im not gonna say all the things i dislike,plus it has already been mentioned in all these reviews.. My only real complaints are how weak you are in the game and how looooooong tourian is and how hard it is.The escape was fine and kinda fun actaully but that's just my opinion. If you were a bit stronger with some tweeks to the enemies and beam powers i would enjoy this hack far more..
