Zelda Time To Triumph and Oni link Begins was cool. I like all the Vicent Joullat Games I have to beat Navis Quest.
Carlo Nassar (8 days ago)
Here's an interesting one. Mega Man X: Generation. Though, that could've had the same weakness order and it could've had different dialogue. But the concept is cool.

0:58 I played this. I also have this game on my R4 card for the DS. I don't recommend the SNES emulator on the DS since it's kind of buggy. I didn't know Metroid had this many rom hacks. 2:48 Damn this story is dark. Damn I don't want to play a brutal Zelda game. 5:10 Is that Undertale music? I remember having issues patching this one Mario rom hack and had to get one that was already patched up.

Hacks are nice and all, but randomizers... randomizers are the best thing ever for games like Super Metroid and Link to the Past... and how about the genius who figured out that SM and LttP use separate sections of memory and decided to put them both into one ROM to be played as one game. In terms of what it is, SM+LttP randomizers are a prime of ROMhacking without actually changing anything.

Awesome video. I just wanna stress for anyone watching this video, applying these patches is super easy. The patch is an IPS file like the man said. You open the program he linked, you open the ROM, and then you open the IPS patch. I believe there is a check to make sure the ROM is correct; I don't think you can apply any IPS patch to any ROM. The program then creates a new file, and you can name it whatever, usually it's "Game Name (Hack Name)" but you can call it whatever you want, like in the case of Parallel Worlds, it's usually just called "The Legend of Zelda Parallel Worlds." Also worth noting that Parallel Worlds was not made to be a fun game per se; it's more of an answer to emulator culture. The game is designed from the top down to be used in a computer program with cheat codes and save states. Use of these is encouraged, and it's STILL hard. The developers wanted a game that would not be trivialised by cheat codes. If you're more of a casual Zelda player, and/or you want to play on original hardware, fret not, there is a Parallel Worlds revision that is supposedly not as difficult. I have not tried it. I am proud to say that I beat the first two dungeons of Parallel Worlds (yes, with cheats). I didn't like it. There were good ideas, but they were marred by the difficulty.
DJReiko (2 months ago)
I was really hoping parallel worlds wouldn't be on this list. It's really not a good romhack. Is it extensive? Very much so? But good is a bit of a stretch, level design is pretty terrible, and the challenge is only fit for the hardcore. While that isn't really a problem for me personally, I doubt your average gamer will enjoy parallel worlds at all.

So after watching every video you’ve published – amazing channel by the way - I have to say I agree with 99% of your reviews, with the most minor of caveats. This stems as far as agreeing with your reviews of the SNES’ biggest tittles to “Extra Innings” being one of the best SNES Baseball games. That being said, the 1% ties to your review of Final Fantasy II and CT: FoE. Now, I’ll be the first to admit that my love for FFII is likely that I view it through rose colored glasses – I’m one of the few people who liked II better than III for a myriad of reasons. Of course, If I’m being completely honest, I’ve played so many iterations of IV, I cannot truly say when I last played the original SNES release. Is it fair to compare FFIV: Hard Type to Final Fantasy III? Probably not, and your comments aren't wrong accordingly. However, when you think about the general story, difficulty, and music I still think II is stronger. I was surprised to hear you thought FoE was just “decent”, given your love of the first. To me, FoE took all the great aspects of the first, albeit with a slightly weaker story, cranked the difficulty up to 11, and rolled with it. I will say that some of the earlier iterations were pretty buggy and the game felt incomplete but that seems to be mostly resolved. Anyway, these are one of those comments that probably gets filed under the “don’t care” category but regardless, I did just want to state that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed your channel and look forward to future releases.

Have you played CT Prophet's Guile? It's way better, feels organic and fits the story nicely. Thanks for taking the time to watch, you must be sick to death of my whiter-than-white midwestern voice at this point

Jayme Thysell (3 months ago)
You should do a video about Crimson Echos vs. Flames of Eternity. No one else has done one. Talk about the differences, the history, and the controversy of the two projects. I want to figure out which one I should play; I'm not interested in playing both since they are similar. From what I understand, CE is 98% complete, and slightly better. FoE is built off of an earlier version of CE, but it goes in a slightly different direction; people say it's not quite as good, but it is complete and still being improved (at least as of 2015). Maybe if more people talked about it, it could inspire a group to finish off CE.

Chrono Trigger: Flames of Eternity lacked a lot of things. The story seemed somewhat interesting, but there was no challenge and hardly any bosses where they were needed. Your assessment seems fair.
Lindsey Lewis (4 months ago)
Yep. Any moron can make a "Kaizo" level, those aren't fair challenges, that's called a character grinder. That's about as niche an audience as you can possibly get. A GOOD developer can make a BALANCED game.

Keith Goetting (5 months ago)
seems as though I am a bit tardy to the party here, but have you played and enjoyed final fantasy : return of the dark sorcerer yet? I am not quite sure which version I have but I know that it is a newer version because the character graphics are much better. There have been a few negative nancies whining about certain things that they didn't like, but this game is seriously awesome. Also there is Final Fantasy 4, unprecedented crisis. This is basically a part 2 to the originally ff4, but continues as if the story never let off. Flames Of eternity was a good game, just a bit long winded. I am looking as to if I can put some of these fan hacks of Final Fight onto my snes. Whats the best site to teach me how to put roms on snes blank cartridges via flash or whatever is the easiest method?
Keith Goetting (5 months ago)
Yes, I have found a few. I just love playing it on the proper platform and with the comfy control. Let me know if you want any information about the games that I mentioned before. Also, have you covered anymore snes hacks. I am a product of that generation, so some of these are a lot of fun. I believe that there are a bunch of ppl that enjoy it as well. I currently have Crimson Echos, Dinosaur land, but the fore mentioned final fantasys, parallel worlds remodel plus a few more on an actual cart that play on snes. Totally awesome!
SNES drunk (5 months ago)
I'm not sure what the best site would be, I've never tried doing that myself. I'm sure someone on youtube has kind of a walkthrough?

Hyper Metroid was a *great* game until it totally stonewalled me and I couldn't figure out how to progress despite 5+ hours of backtracking and re exploring...
eric t (6 months ago)
Zelda Parallel Worlds is proof that just because someone is competent, and knows the original material doesn't mean they can make a good game. The problem is that there's no way anyone could possibly get through it without a guide, which ruins Zelda games. No amount of exploring will advance your game at all, and anyone who claims they've beaten it without cheating of some sort is an absolute liar.

Hagashager (7 months ago)
Your notion that it's harder to make a balanced level is actually *very true* In the game industry itself there's an axiom, "It's easy to make something, it's hard to make something challenging" I highly recommend the Tony Garcia and Mike Stout Developer LP of Ratchet and Clank. They go indepth about difficulty balancing and how *really* hard it is. Warren Spector and Tum Schafer also talked about this on separate occassions somewhere.

Cool vid. I'm going to try to do all the things in the description but I'm already anticipating problems. I use my phone, a website called emuparadise and a couple of emulator apps (mygba & snes9x). I'm also not fond of change 😞... sooooo... I'm hoping I can still use my phone to play these hacks. It's nice to have these oldschool type of games on a mobile. Controls can be an issue sometimes but it's a relatively cheap fix to get an otg cable or a slightly more expensive peripheral. But being able to play anytime anywhere is an overwhelming plus that has me preferring my phone over a PC or a modified console...😕... thing. Anyway, thanks for the video and the info in the description.

Joshua Read (1 year ago)
so a few days ago i embarked on Metroid Super Zero Mission (by recommendation of this video.) i fell in love with it, only to be disappointed that you have to do advanced techniques to finish the game. like "infinite ball bomb jumping." something that takes precision down to the millisecond and down to the exact pixel. they MAKE you do this to go any further in the game. walkthrough videos are just stupid to watch cuz theyre all like "yea just do this, and wall jump like your playing ninja gaiden over here, and there you go." SEVERELY disappointed. Games should not do that. they need to keep the spirit of the original game by rewarding exploration. not exploiting stupid breaks in the game.
SNES drunk (1 year ago)
No, I had to hurry along and get to work on the Part 2 video. But infinite ball bomb jumping can be achieved by setting the bomb button on turbo (in the emulator's controller map) and just holding the button down.
Joshua Read (1 year ago)
So have you beaten that game? What methods did you use?
SNES drunk (1 year ago)
Yeah, I should've hinted a little stronger at stuff like that, but it goes back to what I said at the beginning: these are made by people who've put thousands of hours into the original game, so doing shit like that is 2nd nature to them.
ArtifiShuL Instinct (1 year ago)
How come you didn't mention that Super Zero Mission is like a remake of Metroid: Zero Mission for GBA? The 2 GBA Metroids are some of the best IMO.
SNES drunk (1 year ago)
It happens more often than I'd like to admit. My Street Fighter 2 video is a mess, I'd like a re-do on that one altogether
ArtifiShuL Instinct (1 year ago)
Ah I see makes sense. Not that it's really a big deal anyway :P Thanks for the response!
SNES drunk (1 year ago)
Just one of those things that got lost in my notes, got caught up in making the video and didn't realize I'd forgotten it until everything was finished. I'd add an annotation if Youtube didn't hate annotations now
Halsaufschneider (1 year ago)
Just think about it. The SNES should basically be dead considering its age (the Wii U is definitely dead already). Yet the games on the SNES system are good enough to return for a game session any given time. And not because of nostalgia reasons. And on top of that, there are people out there who created super Modifications for some games. You could almost call some of those Mods literally Addons! And if you liked the original game, then there is no reason NOT to go back and enjoy some more. Because Nintendog never came up with an actual sequel or something similar good. Gamers have to rely on other gamers.

Shion Kreth (1 year ago)
Hyper metroid was amazing in my opinion; huge well-designed world, balanced combat, and an ending sequence that's virtually second to none even counting other professional efforts. I enjoyed it more than super zero mission, even though it ran the risk of too much back-tracking and unintuitive progression. If you're a super metroid fan you shouldn't miss it.
Brett Hickenbottom (1 year ago)
Metroid Super Zero Mission starts off strong but the second half is plagued by extremely poor game design and parts that are just plain broken.

Metroid Super Zero Mission is very good but the best hack is still Super Metroid Z-Factor.imo the only hack that even outshines the original.

Anyone else having trouble playing metroid super zero mission? I downloaded from the link above. I opened with ZSNES but it won't load up. It just loads the front text describing what version hack it is then goes to black. Then nothing. I've played other metroid hacks on zsnes w no error. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I went to this WS http://metroidconstruction.com/hack.php?id=19 and downloaded 2.2 and 2.4 and both had same issue :(

Make sure you select "headerless" when you join the ROM with the .ips file. Other than that, I'm not sure.

Super Mario World Brutal Mario or bust. There's a remodel of Parallel Worlds that changes the mode from insane to normal. I've played a few of these games, but haven't had a chance to play all the way through. There's even a bunch for n64. I tried to reprogram a game editor for Megaman X, but it was quite a bit more work than I could handle.
