    Swapped the primary and alternative names. The original Japanese title should be used first with the translated title used as an alternate. The original name of the rom has been made the primary name. Kinda odd that the Japanese title makes more sense than the supposed translated title, but I didn't make the names I just swapped them lol.
  • Games
    Just another name swap. The Japanese name is "Lipple Island" and I figure it should be the primary name and the translated name "Ripple Island" should be the alternative. :)
  • Games
    The given name for this game was a translated name. The original name attached to the rom file and found elsewhere as the name for this game was not included except in the translation notes of which rom to use. I have made the rom name the primary name and the translated one the "alternative" name. I do believe that should be how it is. :)

The new standard for metroid hacks!

Reviewed By: mrrichard999 on 27 Dec 2013

This is a great looking hack. I am surprised it hasn’t got a review on it already. With more than just simple graphics improvements, this hack also gives plain sprites an animated revival and also great detail. The head statues in Brinstar got glowing eyes, the doors and cross bridges have glowing lights, sprites also have better detail to them, and also nice glass looking doors. There are also some simple level edits also but if anybody were to make any kind of level hack in the future, this should be the applied first to your ROM before starting it :).
