Hyper Metroid (Nintendit 1.4)Description

Don’t think this is gonna be a 100% Gold Remake, it’ll have its differences. Extra battles (some’ll be optionals, tough but rewarding), Hoenn Pokemon (in every area, and hard to find) New areas, Remapped some dungeons (so your old guides wont work) , Extra recurring characters (some’ll hate you, some’ll help you)

Note that the hack is incomplete but feel free to enjoy the hack as-is.

Super Metroid 2015 (Hyper Metroid Nintendit) by dex909 [Version 1.4]

This is a patch for the Super Metroid hack "Hyper Metroid 1.0" by Trevor 'RealRed' Sitkoff which is based on "Project Base 0.7.2" by Michael 'begrimed' Silcox
It contains a revised Hyper Metroid story intro, removing some of the more controversial parts added by the original hack. Several other adjustments, such as edited and restored logos for introductions and the outro as well as minor palette changes, have been made to make it appear more like an official release may have looked back in the day. This patch also includes minor sound and graphics changes such as the restoration of Samus' eye during the intro. The original changes from "Hyper Metroid 1.0" are included in this edit. Choose one of the .ips patches and apply it to an unheadered rom of Super Metroid e.g. "Super Metroid (JU) [!].smc".

version 0.7.2 -- may 14, 2015

Project Base is a ROM hack of Super Metroid that keeps the original map mostly intact, while adding new stuff. It doesn't force the player to take a new path, or to use any advanced techniques. Well-known sequence breaks and shortcuts have been left alone, with many new ones added. Highly speedrunnable, and with a level of difficulty that is accessible to anyone. Works with Snes9X, ZSNES, higan/BSNES, and on SNES/flash cartridges.

- General movement is less inhibited, with many new tricks made possible
- Modified enemies and bosses, including AI and graphical touch-ups
- Faster elevators, doors, room transitions and item-collection sequences
- Bug fixes and polish applied whenever possible
- New rooms added, others expanded and/or merged
- Alternate versions that offer even more ways to enjoy Super Metroid!

- RESPIN -- press jump at any time during a normal fall to resume spinning
- BACK FLIP -- while crouched, hold run, then press and hold jump + back
- BOMB SKIP -- hold down to avoid bomb jumping
- QUICK MORPH #1 -- hold item cancel + press down to instantly morph
- QUICK MORPH #2 -- hold L + press down, only works in the air
- DEMORPH JUMP -- until Spring Ball is equipped, holding run allows spin-jumping straight out of ball form
- SPEED BALL -- with Spring Ball equipped, Samus gains the ability to run at full speed as a ball
- UP SPIN -- while standing still, hold run to easily spin-jump straight up
- SPIN FALL -- hold jump as you fall from a ledge to flip automatically

- Beam travelling and firing speeds adjusted, auto-fire speed increased
- Charge beam draws energy and ammo drops from enemies toward you, also charges slightly faster
- Speed Booster has become a major power-up with several huge limitations removed
- Horizontal shinesparks can be exited into a full-speed run when Samus touches a slope
- Space Jump no longer stops working after you've fallen too far
- Missiles and super missiles can be fired faster
- Super missiles can be fired straight down while in the air to propel Samus upward
- X-Ray Scope speed increased
- Bomb timer shortened
- Underwater wall jumping and bomb jumping enabled
- Running speed no longer resets after jumping or falling

Original Credits  for Project Base 7.2 (begrimed)

The name "Project Base" refers its original purpose, which was to act as a base hack for others to build from. It first appeared in August 2009 after I was inspired by squishy_ichigo's Vanilla++ hack, and it is currently still being worked on. I take long breaks often so that I can gather feedback and bug reports. Special shout-out to StuntCoyote, LinkaMeister, Beta Aquarii, Hubert0987, stealinbread, and everyone else ranking it up on the leaderboards for their time spent playing! And to RealRed for making Hyper Metroid, the first major ROM hack of Super Metroid to utilize Project Base!
