Spoilery tip: There is one point where you will find lava in an area that is not the main chasm where the lava normally is. It's a small area. Fill up on energy, create a suspend point if you're nervous, and dive in! I'm not sure if you're at this point or not, but it seems the most likely tip. When I got to this point, I did it just to screw around, but I'm pretty sure it's what you're supposed to do. When you emerge, you'll find yourself in a new area with a couple Metroids, I think, and each fight will test your nerves since there is no way, to my knowledge, to refill your energy on the other side, at least not before the Metroid fights.

Good luck!

Wow, really? I never went lava swimming. I do remember the pool that wasn't the "main" pool, but I was still able to drain it before venturing down. I think you found your sequence break!

Wow, I wonder what I was supposed to do to drain it, because I was really stumped at that point. I didn't think you even could sequence break since you have to exterminate the Metroids. I didn't go back after killing those, so that should mean I didn't skip any Metroids... Now I'm really confused. I'll have to try playing it with a guide some time and see if I can drain it in advance. It didn't drain for me until I killed the Metroids on the other side.

I definitely killed a Metroid (or a number of Metroids) to drain it. I remember that part well, with the double lava pits, because I heard the earthquake go off, but when I returned to the lava in was in the same place. I explored around and found that the second pit was now empty.

You may not think you skipped a Metroid, but it's possible that one happened to be hiding out somewhere in a room you didn't happen to check until after you cleared the other one. No idea really...I just know I was way too much of a pansy (oh, and I like playing games in their correct sequence, but mainly the pansy thing) to go lava diving.

I'm already looking forward to playing this one again...I was very impressed by it.

I was going to download it almost instantly, but then I remembered I was going to get Metroid Fusion for the GBA Ambassador Program. The Ambassador games are so close to coming out, I don't want to buy it only for it to collect virtual dust.

I downloaded it. Seems like a really nice game. The controls in particular feel pretty good to me.
The only problem I have is, for some reason in the old Metroid games (the original, Super Metorid, and now this one) I always get lost. I haven't beat any of them (though I have beat all 3 Primes with the Trilogy release...may have been one of the best $50 deals I have ever gotten...I also beat Other M which I actually think it pretty good, even though Samus is pretty long winded and depressing).
Again, it feels like a really great game, and I'm all about exploring, but I've only killed about 2 metroids so far, and i feel like I'm going in circles.

Pay attention to the music and enemy types to know when you are in a different area.

Honestly I just used a map alongside the game. Made a game I usually wouldn't really enjoy much more accessible.

this game was way better than the first! i was surprised by how much closer to super metroid it was than i expected. it still sucked not having a map, but the graphics were good enough to make the areas more memorable than the first game. nintendo did a great job making the atmosphere tense, i was pretty startled when a metroid was buried in one of the sand pits i was digging through. well worth the $4 to say that i now have played every metroid.... except zero mission.

Finally finished it tonight. Now I can really get into those GBA games. Really enjoyed it though, much more than I did the original on my first play through some time back. I got stuck once and ended up refering to a map that one time, but otherwise found my own way through it. I solidly enjoyed this game, it's too bad I never played it way back when it first came out.

Im interested in this game and have watched some YT clips about it. Can anybody explain, why there are some videos about this game in colour, but others are just in black/white? I havent had a gameboy on my own earlier, but it seems to me, there has been an option added to the game to play it with colours at some point?

I missed the whole era completely as you see. And....possibly Nintendo will add the colours to the eshop release too?

Would be very kind by you to get an answer. Thanks in advance.

Grammar errors? We could use the german language instead of the english one of course - do you dare? ;)

Since the game was for the Gameboy, it was released in black and white. But from what I understand, if you popped the cartridge in the Game Boy Color, it added...well, color. The eShop version is black and white only (pretty much no chance they'd ever release it in color), but if you're interested you should really give it a shot. It's a great introduction to 2D Metroid, and the black and white really adds to the haunting atmosphere.

Ah I see. I really was wondered how there could be colours to the game since it has been released only for the gameboy so far if I got it right. Never had a gameboy oder gameboy colour as said, so the function you mentioned is new and pretty impressive to me. Will buy Metroid II later the day anyway to fill up my weekend and because I found out Metroid and Metroid Fusion are nice games to me (Ambassador ones). Thanks for answering my question Kid_A.

I wish the GB games had contrast and color options.

Love this so far, even though I haven't played it more than a couple hours. Shooting down enemies is fun and there's way more variety in the world design than in the first game. Doesn't even touch Super Metroid IMHO, but it's really fun. I love it when the music is just barely there — just a few bleeps and bloops now and then.

Spiderball controls suck though.

Nintendo should really put out an update to fix the green colour on the GB games and give you the option to open GB games as GBC ones (with the GBC emulator - where you can use colour palettes).

I make Pixel Art on occasion.

I'm liking this a ton more than the original Metroid. I can say this has aged fairly well. Not as well as Super Metroid, mind you, but it didn't fall into the same place Metroid 1 did with its aging process.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

Also, in my opinion, the scariest one in the series. Mostly because the empty and barren rooms make the sudden and abrubt appearances of the Metroids all that more jump-out-your-seats.
