- When you download this hack the download will contain a.ips file (Not a ROM file), This.ips file is a patch which you need to apply to the original ROM in order to be able to play the hacked game. The easiest thing to do is copy the.ips file in to the same folder as the original ROM and make sure the.ips and.rom file have the same name.
- All in all, I would have to say that this ROM hack of Super Metroid is truly one of the pinnacles of achievement in hacking, and I truly hope (as I feel) that this hack becomes one of the primary benchmarks for SM hackers for years to come, for Super Metroid: Ascent is one of those hacks SM hackers should aspire to reach the depth, complexity.
Metroid Alpha (Hack) Filename: Metroid Alpha (Hack).zip learn what (U), !, and other rom codes mean. To play NES roms, an emulator is required. Popular NES emulators include nesticle vx.xx for DOS, fce ultra v0.96 for Windows, NESten v0.61 for Windows.
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.

Best Super Metroid Rom Hacks
Ascent is a full hack of super metroid.
More super metroid with same gameplay but whole new level design, new visuals and even some new mechanics. It has approximately the same amount of rooms as original game but bigger rooms and the difficulty is harder than original but not too much. The hack gameplay focus on puzzles, exploration and challenges. The focus on puzzles is stronger than most hacks. However there is multiple ways to advance or solve a problem. This is my first real attempt at hacking, there could be some weird moments of me trying stuff :D, but nothing will be out of place assets or ideas. Metroid for me is a huge alien underground isolated maze and this is what it will be about.
The main idea of this hack is like multiple small hacks put into one with a connected progression and world. So its more levels based. (multiple zones)
With map portions closing behind you at the end of the zone.
You will see where it ends on the map ingame.
Start at the abyss of the planet and ascend your way up to the surface.
Read the 'README.txt' for more important info if you need !
Will you be able to defeat the black parasites and reach the extraction point ? find out in ascent
