Some of the areas design wise are so flippin' repetitive that you're bound to get completely lost sooner or later, unless you draw a map out as you go.
It's been working woders for me, that is until i screwed up towards the end. I'm still not ready to face off against Kraid yet, I'm guessing I nead the Wave beam...because trying to take him out with the Ice beam is a complete Freddy Krueger Nightmare considering there's so much going on 'on screen', if you get nailed by either his needles or his boomeranges and slip into that pit it's 'game over'.
There's nothing worse than wasting 15 minutes stalking up on Health & missles from that little reSpawning fly outside Kraids door to then finally go toe to toe with Kraidy himself and instantly getting hit and falling into the right corner death pit.lol You know what else i love? How his boomerangs can still hit you when you're walking out of the room OR when you walk in the room and again his boomerangs instantly hit you and you can't move out of the way. Cheap Lazy epic dated game design hehe.
Anyways! The latest upgrade i've gotten is the ScrewAttack and i've stocked up on tons missles. I've been playing Metroid for 5-6 hours with breaks in between. I Never game this long, But this mind melting bounty hunting alien romp in Zebes is ultra Addicting. Oh and i still haven't come across Ridley, where in the hell is he?

@Wavey, you need the Varia suit to actually stand a chance against the bosses.
I believe in make believe~

@Wave: Ok, I am going to give you some very minor hints. Don't read further if you don't want any suggestions. Forget about Kraid and go after Ridley. He's waiting for you down in Norfair. Also, load up on missles for the bosses, you need them. The wave beam is pointless in this game.

@Happy_Maskula & @Emaany
Forget that 'Narpas Password' I only 'cheat' on girl friends. Kidding aside.
Looking at the manual it seems like the only 2 upgrades i dont' have are the Varia suit and Wave beam.
Thanks for the tiny little hint, i dread the thought of going online and spoiling the game for myself. If i look 'up' where the Viara suit is or exactly where Ridley is located i'd feel like i would ruin part of the experience. Looks like I'll be taking out Kraid afterwards with my Ice Beam. eek! The ScrewAttack will definitly come in handy though when blazing through those mid-air boomerangs without taking any damage. Anyways, Loving Metroid so far. But with the inclusion of a map this game would of been all the more amazing, but it is what it is. Metroid II doesn't have a map either no? Nintendo you're killing me!
Oh, and the openging Title theme totaly sets the mood...Especially in the beginning. A standout chip tune indeed.

Hint hint: the wave beam is really useful against Ridley

Ridley is a complete push over. All you have to do is just freeze his bouncing swarm of balls(lol), hop over them and keep blasting him in the face with your Missles, until the balls un-freeze. Keep doing the same thing over again and Ridley will sooner or later bite the Pterodactyl Dust! Oh and....I just beat the game! Kraid got his butt whooped. The best tactic against him is to freeze his top and middle needles/missles and keep blasting him near the top of his head with your missles while doing little jumps over his bottom incoming needle that will shoot out every 5 seconds. If you can keep this up, then he's Alien Fish food and you are the ultimate stud on Elm Street. Alf would be proud.
But yeah....i couldn't wait to get out of Norfair, that place was a hell hole to the mondo megath' degree. I don't know how many bloody times i got stuck down there...I also never ended up finding the Wave Beam or Viara suit sadly. Plus i hear there's '8' Energy tanks, where as i got 6 instead and i think i missed 1 missle expansion back down in Norfair as well. Whatever...There's absolutely no way i'm going through it all again....

-however is easily one of the greatest final 8-bit bosses i've enountered. It had me on the edge of my silly seat. And thank god i drew my own map as i gradually progressed, otherwise I wouldn't of finished the game, at least not yet....But yup! What can I say, I'm a complete 2D metroid NesterNooby. Many gamers never experienced the original, or they instead started out with Super Metroid or the other later 2D entries in the franchise. In that case, for them playing the original would be a complete downgrade. For me, like i've mentioned before when i was a Toobular Totty' i rented Metroid back on the NES at my local video store and gave it maybe 30 minutes of game time. Still, i remember that little experience back in 89' like it were yeserday.Where as I barely went hands on with 'Super' Metroid(which blew me away) during it's release and instead watched my best bud play it every now and then. SO, with that said, 'Metroid' felt completely FRESH to me aisde from the first 10 minutes. I wasn't getting a stripped down experience because i haven't experienced the Superior 'later' entries in the franchise and I'm happy I didn't skip the original because now I'm going to appreciate Super Metroid, or even the improvements made in II:Return of Samus all the more. I'll get that amazing 8-16 bit Next Generation transition, which is extremely exciting...Instead of being a total goober head and completely skipping the original that started it all... Had i started with Super Metroid, i wouldn't appreciate the original whatsoever. There would be 'no' transition since Fusion and Zero mission that came afterwards are also 16-bit like Super M.
Giant wave of Blabbing-Text aside....Whenever i get my Metroid on again, should i jump into Metroid II Return of
Samus for the GB on the 3DS's VC, or go for Super Metroid on the Wii's VC?
I do want to play the 2D releases in order, so it's probably just best off I go with II: Return of Samus Oh great....Another mapless Metroid. Anyways, all in all Metroid was a great experience. not perfect....Ahem, needed a map and it was annoying how you couldn't dodge certain enemies/attacks when you entered certain rooms and then there's the brillaint Acid/Lava death traps. I'd 8/10 it easy. Loved it!

The final battle with Mother Brain + escaping Zebes was a major heart thumper.
I was besides myself in anxiety.
Good for you Wavey! You did it!
