I actually liked this hack a great deal, enough for me to actually put the effort in to complete it. True, I did have to ask for some help for the last few items, such as with the shinespark puzzle in order to get Power Bombs, which resulted in giving accessibility to more bosses than would be necessary to simply beat the hack, as well as with locating that last false block area, which had no real hints as to its location. I didn't particularly like the message areas, but one of the two is supposedly going to be removed, so...

Also, like dopefish, I loved the lore explaination of the gravity suit not affecting the frigid water, which allowed for having gravity be a recolor of varia, and the final suit being able to go over actual gravity. Something that I was disappointed by, was the lack of the space jump, after getting all the other upgrades available. Maybe there could have been some secret area accessible after getting Screw Attack, but I suppose it wasn't truly necessary.

In short, this was a wonderful Zero Mission hack, and I hope to see more like it in the future.

Okay, I'm going to state this: the "escape section" is not fun in the slightest, and I needed to freeze my energy value to something higher than all the energy tanks in the game could provide to survive a /single/ hit. Which you are going to be hit more than once.

Now that we have that out of the way, the hack was actually very disappointing. There are a great deal of situations where you have to avoid enemies, since otherwise they /will/ kill you very quickly, since you don't have nearly enough energy to take them on. This applies to the boss as well.

I also did not like the way that paths were blocked off, either with invisible walls, preventing you from going into places where you think you should, and the solid walls that get triggered after the "defrosting", which again, are dumb, especially if they block off easy access to the extra upgrades.

Not a very good hack, but I'm rating it slightly higher than I would, because I did enjoy the effort that was put into the custom backgrounds and tiles, and the fact that this /is/ a hack of Zero Mission, of which there is a sorely lacking number.
