    Hi everyone, if you didn't notice this is my first post here. I have been a long time fan of 2D Metroids and loved the 2 GBA ones apart from thier length. Now, I was wondering if I could hack either Metroid Zero Mission or Metroid Fusion to change the level layout, powerups, events etc. to make a "remake" of Super Metroid and/or Metroid II.

    Does anyone know of a program that hacks the game, similar to the Pokemon's one?

    interdepth made a level editor for both gba metroid games. its called double helix.

    you can read and see what does and can do here:

    There is also a youtube video of the editor so you can see how it affects gameplay:

    using the editor requires some skills or you end up causing the game to crash at some point.

    There is also a guy named DoctorM64 working on a Metroid II remake, it doesn't run on a gba but is pretty good:
