Snarblams' maru mari hack on metroid (unsure if it ever was finished) flipped the object of the game on its end by exploiting the sprite wraparound, forcing morphball mode, adding and adding ratchet autoscrolling. I assume the ypos-based hurt mechanism is repurposed to kill off the player character if catched by the upper edge of screen.

Actually, it's not a hack, it's a homebrew game, written from scratch. Snarf just used Metroid graphics as placeholder for future art.

He was asking for artists on his coding blog, a while back.

The concept reminds me of MineShaft vaguely.

I'm actually working on a port of Brick Breaker for the PCE to ease me into developing for it, but maybe I'll remake it for that system so the side compo idea is intriguing. Not sure if I'd be able to back port the "new" version to a compo format though, since I'd probably hit 64k easily with what I'm planning.
