HYPERION is a chocolate hack featuring expanded graphics, extra and modified sprites, fresh palettes, and a custom soundtrack.
This game focuses on platforming rather than trick-heavy setups, so you will find limited item abuse or shell techniques here (there is a light sprinkling of kaizo trolls though).
The overworld paths are branching with the secret exits and switch palaces being necessary to complete the game, but your movement is sped up and your progress auto saves as you move. (Note: switch palaces do not count towards the exit total.)
There are also a handful of secret shout outs and easter eggs throughout the game for exploratory players. HYPERION is my first hack and my labour of love for the past year, I hope you enjoy.
DISCLAIMER: there is at least one known compatibility issue with SNES Classic.
