Items are moved, puzzles are changed, and there is no such thing as a dead end. It is hard both mentally and physically, but I avoided such design flaws as having to bomb arbitrary points in the floor or placing enemies so that you get smacked in the face on the way in or out of rooms. Metroid fans should love this! It's essentially a brand new NES Metroid game. Also, minor text and graphics hacks were done, but mostly just for packaging purposes, (As in, the title screen was changed, mostly).

This should have taken years to create! The level design is not as bad as people say consider that level hacking has been practiced and enhanced since the first day SMW hacking was started. The hack is not too hard and this is really a good thing.] Download Chrono Trigger: Prophet’s Guile Warning: Spoilers inside! Thanks to distorted.frequency for telling me about it. For use with:Chrono Trigger This follows the story of Magus’s rise to power in the Kingdom of Zeal after arriving in 12000 B.C. thanks to the distortion at his lair.

Created by: Nerrd Labs For use with: Super Mario World The Ninji Saga really seeks to switch things up a bit by putting you in control of one of Mario's enemies. The game is a very original. And though it runs a bit on the short side, The Ninji Saga is definitely worth a download. Download Panic In The Mushroom Kingdom Warning: Spoilers inside! Created by: Ghettoyouth For use with: Super Mario World This hack is worth playing simply due to its originality! Be warned however that some may find its content offensive.

One is the primary focus of wall jumping. The second is uncovering the truth behind your mission. For each map station you encounter, you will also receive Chozo Lore.

All the level icons are edited, and most sprites have slight GFX edits. -Some slightly tweaked music, but again, that's another thing I lost motivation on. -And more stuff which I don't remember. Download Patches for Translations,Re-translations,and Spoofs: Chrono Trigger Re-translation Warning: Spoilers inside! Thanks to distorted.frequency for mentioning it. For use with:Chrono Trigger Ozzie's name is originally Vinegar.XD All dialogue in the game, as well as all lists of items, weapons, armor, locations, etc. have been rendered in English once more. A clearer portrayal of Chrono Trigger as intended by its Japanese creators is now available. It is not the opinion of this project that Ted Woolsey's official translation was bad or insufficient in any way -- only that some essence of the game was lost or altered, given Nintendo of America's censorship standards and the inability of the game to hold all the original text when translated to English. Download Clock Tower Warning: Spoilers inside! For use with:Clock Tower(J) Clock Tower SFC is the prequel to the game we know in the states as Clock Tower. And while technically "The First Fear" is not the proper subtitle for the game (it doesn´t actually have a subtitle), the game was rereleased for the PlayStation under the title Clock Tower - The First Fear, and I´ll be using that name to differentiate between it and the US version (instead of calling this Clock Tower Zero or some bullshit like that.) You play as Jennifer Simpson, fleeing from the insane psycho killer Bobby Barrows (AKA "the scissorman") in the Barrows Family Mansion. It´s also a puzzle game sort of along the lines of the Discworld games, but the puzzles are a lot less nonsensical Translation´s complete, have fun! Download Final Fantasy IV Warning: Spoilers inside! For use with:Final fantasy IV(J) Thanks to FireEmblemGuy our friendly temper for mentioning it. Final Fantasy IV was released here in the States as Final Fantasy II, and was the game to firmly establish Square as an RPG force to be reckoned with. Sadly though, the release was plagued by censors, edits, and a pretty godawful translation. Later Squaresoft rereleased FFIV in the States for Playstation as part of Final Fantasy Chronicles, complete, uncensored, and retranslated. Making an SNES translation kind of unnecessary in this day and age. But honestly, before that came along, how else were you supposed to check out the super-cool Programmer's Room? That's right. You play the part of Cecil, commander of the Baron's airship fleet, known as the Red Wings. You've served your king faithfully over the years, but recently he's been acting weird and demanding that you retrieve the Crystals from all over the world, and by using any means necessary. Cecil questions the king's judgement and is stripped of his command. What follows is a pretty nifty (and kinda weird) tale of good vs. evil, with some love and loss thrown into the mix. Granted, it's not the first FF game to have a decent plot, but it's the first to be a good game along with that. FFIV was the last truly traditional Final Fantasy game, with all the characters learning specific skills when they reached a certain level. Just like Dragon Quest! These days the game may not look like much (admit it, the graphics aren't too hot except for all the cool Mode7 stuff), but the gameplay is engaging, and the story keeps you playing. And the soundtrack is pretty sexy as well. Download Final Fantasy VI Warning: Spoilers inside! For use with:Final Fantasy(J) Thanks to FireEmblemGuy our friendly temper for mentioning it. The Japanese version of Final Fantasy III. Or the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VI, if you played the Playstation version. Between this and FF3US, the only big difference is the title screen. Anything else is just nitpicking in the translation itself. Though I admit, Pearl instead of Holy was kind of weird. But, whaddaya going to do. When this game first came out over here, the only chance I got to play it was on my friend's SNES when I was housesitting for him and his family while they were on vacation. There weren't any open save slots, though, and I didn't want to risk deleting one that had important stuff on it, so every day I played through the game as far as I could without saving. The farthest I got was the Lete River. Not too far, but not bad for an afternoon's work. I was absolutely enthralled by the game's story, and characters, and graphical excellence. Once SNES9x was released for the first time, I played through it again on my roommate's computer (with sound even) and got to the Floating Continent. Again, great stuff. Once I bought Final Fantasy Anthology and was set and determined to finish the game, I realized something. While the story is decent, and the characters all have slightly more personality than most RPG characters (with notable exceptions), after the Floating Continent the game does a complete 180 on play style. Instead of following the story, you're now given full control to go wherever you want in your shiny new (old) airship, and the developers expect the gameplay to carry the game until the final dungeon. And it doesn't. Eventually you discover Espers (or Phantom Beasts, or whatever), which work a lot like your equipment in Final Fantasy IX: in battles you get points that go to your Esper. Once your Esper reaches 100% in a particular area, your character gets a certain magic spell. The problem is, (almost) any character can equip any Esper. What the hell is the badass royal martial artist doing casting Ultima? And why can he do it just as easily as the half-esper magic user? Eventually, all that distinguishes the characters from each other is their special moves. And honestly, why would you ever not have Edgar and Sabin in your party? Granted, the whole cookie-cutter aspect isn't as bad as FFVII, but unlike FFVII, running around in dungeons, fighting monsters and solving simple puzzles, just isn't any fun. It's enjoyable at first, but by the end all the game's faults just end up being intolerable. Playing through it becomes a chore, and eventually you'll say to hell with getting the cool Espers and items, let's just fight the stupid boss already. So in short, play until you get to the Floating Continent. You'll enjoy it more. Granted, the story and graphics are great, and the soundtrack is easily in the all-time 10 best ever, but it's hard to say whether or not having to suffer through the actual game is worth it.

Created byeJap For use with:Star Ocean(J) A must play.Nuff seen. Download Tales of Phantasia Translation Warning: Spoilers inside! Created byeJap For use with:Tales of Phantasia Tales of Phantasia is a Super Nintendo RPG by Namco that came out in Japan in 1995. In January of 2001, the fan based English translation was released by DeJap Translations. This made it possible for us to experience Tales of Phantasia completely in English via video game emulation. Tales of Phantasia was the first RPG for the SNES to feature a full J-Pop song and tons of voice acting. Not only that, the battle system is none like anyone had experienced before. They take place in a separate battle sequence like in any other RPG, but it plays like a 2D version of Secret of Mana. Tales of Phantasia was never officially released in North America because they felt RPGs weren't popular enough at the time and that it wouldn't be worth it. Text Translation:Download Text&Voice Translation:Download Patches for Improvements and Modifications: Chrono Trigger Warning: Spoilers inside!

Zeal Battle Want to take on Magus, Queen Zeal, AND Schala in a massive battle? Chickenlump has made it possible!Just walk into Gato's Exhibit to initiate battle. Control Freak Warning: Spoilers inside! Fore use with:Super Metroid This small hack only changes the control setup for the game, to something closer to the newer GBA Metroid games. The opening Options menus have been altered to show the new controls for the game. Item pickup messages and Japanese text have not been altered however. Control Changes * Run is now toggleable between Run and Walk. * Moonwalk has been deleted, and the setting is now used to toggle Auto Run. * Aim Up is now the only aim button, ‘Aimlock’. Holding it will make Samus aim at a certain angle, and aim higher or lower if you tap up or down. * Samus also has the ability to run and aim straight up at the same time now. * Select Item is still used to select missiles, super missiles, power bombs, or the grapple beam. It no longer selects X-ray, which now has its own button. Items that are empty can be selected, but of course will not be used. Beams can still be used at any time, even when missiles and super missiles are selected. * Item cancel has also been removed, as it now activates the x-ray scope. * Aim Down has become Brandish, which, when held, will toggle between Beams and the item currently selected. This is somewhat… abusable. * Smile Beams can be charged and remain charged while you fire missiles, but you still have to wait for cooldown till you can release a charged shot, or else you’ll just waste your charge. * Powerbomb attacks are also now easy to control, just tap Brandish when you want to trigger them. * Spinjump controls have also been improved a bit - Walljumping should be a bit easier on a d-pad, and Samus will fire in the direction you’re pressing instead of just forward, if you press fire. * The controls are configurable to ANY combination. Aim is not limited to L and R. Download Super Mario World: Graphics Hack Warning: Spoilers inside! For use with:Super Mario World A complete overhaul of SMW, replacing eveything with GFX from SMB3.
