Super Metroid Randomizer

This works like the LttP randomizer, in that it generates a ROM file with randomized item locations. You can choose between Casual, Speedrunner and Masochist modes, which I assume affects how difficult some of the item locations are. (ie: varia suit in lower norfair or something)

Interesting. I wonder if the algorithm is designed to prevent reaching dead ends and being unable to progress with the items they have.

Maybe not. I got stuck on my first run on Casual, because of no Morph Ball or Missiles. Screw Attack and Space Jump let me access a Power Bomb, but without Morph Ball I could not use it. Maybe I'll double check after I get through this current second run.
edit: I figured it out

Completable seed: C0949919

edit: sorry, I was wrong, this is how difficulties work:
This is a fundamental shift in the way difficulties work. Instead of having "Easy", "Normal", and "Hard", the difficulties are now "Casual", "Speedrunner", and "Masochist." If you aren't a speedrunner, don't pick "Speedrunner." If you aren't a masochist, don't pick "Masochist." Easy as that.
  • A major overhaul of the randomization for all difficulties has taken place.
    • Among the changes, now Missile and Super Missile are possible first items in Speedrunner and higher difficulties.
  • Casual difficulty has the 100 normal items hidden from vanilla Super Metroid. A great intro for those who want to play something a little more random, but nothing tricky.
    • Also, no items will be hidden in the scenery on Casual except those normally hidden in vanilla Super Metroid.
So I think speedrunner/masochist removes some spawns to make things harder.

I still haven't checked this out, but there have been a few streams of Super Metroid randomized on Vinesauce recently that reminded me about this and re-piqued my interest in it. I think I'll give it a go sometime this week.
