Metroid mOTHER

Hack of Metroid

Description:

This hack is the combination of three individual hacks. It was created to be the ultimate NES remake of a classic game.

The original palette has been utilized and the layout of the map is exactly as the original. The only exception is the room where you fight Ridley. To reduce flicker (as much as possible) I had to place Ridley above the doors.

I do not claim any credit for the actual content - only for the hard work of making it all work together.

All credits go to the below listed hacks and their individual authors:

Get Metroid HD, it's the ideal way to use this hack and play Metroid.

As the base hack (actually it’s mOTHER+99, but that’s just an update to this) for Metroid HD I used this in conjunction with the Metroid HD texture pack. These two things combined IMO is the definitive Nestroid experience in 2020. Unfortunately Aclectico and company’s great work isn’t represented here on the hacks page but can be easily found in the forums or on Metroid Construction: https://www.romhacking.net/forum/index.php?topic=26811.msg362529#msg362529 http://www.metroidconstruction.com/hack.php?id=381

It requires the Mesen emulator to work but setting up Metroid HD is a breeze, just follow the instructions from the romhacking forum post linked above and let Mesen do the work applying the patch and textures. All you need is a clean rom, the emulator, and the texture pack as it includes this patch. While using Mesen i found overclocking beneficial, i just used the example of “400″ given in the emulation option for overclocking and the game ran as beautifully as it looked. It was largely a flawless experience with next to no glitches, and the minor ones i experienced are likely endemic of the original game.

It was great to play the original Metroid again except this time I didn’t have to farm constantly nor was I lost as the health refresh, auto map, and enhanced graphics made navigation much quicker and easier. I am very thankful to all of the effort these many wonderful people have put into making Metroid a classic that holds up in 2020. All the folks behind this patch, Metroid HD, and Mesen should be very proud as no Metroid fan should hesitate to enjoy this new version of an old experience that without these additions is IMO a poorly aged game. If any of you talented folks who’ve done work on making this all possible see this I offer you a sincere Thank You.
