Orphan Moon: A Metroid Story
Galactic lifeform scans have discovered potential Metroid existence in a very unusual place. Sometime after the complete destruction of Zebes, it's large moon was found adrift, now in orbit around the host star FS-176. A genetics lab has been detected beneath the surface, along with Chozo technologies. This off-site moon base was used by someone to enhance the DNA of various species of life, active to Zebes, in attempts to find a perfect hybrid formula for fusing beings with Metroid DNA. Find this lab and destroy it.

What you'll find:
-All new sprites and graphics to just about every tile in the game
-All new music for each stage
-Save Game states (no passwords)
-Wave Beam & Ice Beam can be combined
-New respawn points for each stage (not just the areas elevator)
-Since most of the original ROM build is still intact, majority of Game Genie cheats still work for this game!
