High Jump/Space Jump boots. The item that makes Samus jump higher, no?

Oh, the Space Jump. The "prototype" to the screw attack. Yes, you get that in Maridia, not the high jump boots.

Though, I'll never understand why the game doesn't hand you the screw attack while totally dismissing the high jump altogether. lol

The Hi-Jump & Space Jump are two seperate power ups.

You get the Hi-Jump first (before you fight Kraid), and it lets you jump higher.

You get the Space Jump in Maridia, and it allows you to somersault endlessly.

As for the Gravity Suit, you recieve it after fighting Phantoon, and it allows you to move freely underwater & in lava.

I figured out where the confusion came from.

Metroid Prime's "high jump" boots are called "space jump" boots. Silly Nintendo. :)

Got a bit further in Maridia today. Still not enjoying this zone at all. In fact I am finding it really hard to continue with this area but I want to at least have Super Metroid under my belt. So I am just going to tough it out.

Ya, you have to get used to it. I used to think the same thing, except all of the controls in general. Now I can beat the game pretty easily. I've beaten it 3 times. Once, literally just a minute ago under 3 hours for the Samus with no suit ending, one time not caring about completion on my first, and an under 3 hour one a while ago.
It's funny, too, because my Wii VC file is still in Maridia...

Well this is my first play through so I am know I am not going to get the good ending on this run, heck I just spent about an hour and half trying to get to the room that has the plasma beam with no luck cause of the broken jump mechanics. If anyone has any advice on that part I will gladly take it. Other than that I think I need to take a break from this game for a few days. I think its time for a bit of Harvest Moon.

jump mechanics are not broken at all... it just takes a lot of getting used to but then you have a considerate amount of control

Don't, apparently it is quite hard and akin to Jedi mastery.

Also, the only time you can use the space jump/screw attack multiple times, is when you're jumping and starting to fall. If you don't allow yourself to fall a certain distance, and try to use the space jump, it will cut out.
I can do the wall jump pretty well. I've gotten a few upgrades early in the game because of it. All you have to do is sacrifice some health sometimes, like travelling over spikes for a bit, then wall jump up to things they expect you to use the grapple beam for. The grapple hooks pretty much guarantee you have the the option to wall jump to get to the same place, except in water areas(before you get the Gravity Suit).

I'd like to present the reason why Super Metroid is not as good as Metroid Prime.

walk 10 feet
look for items with X-Ray visor

Repeat for hours until you've checked every single area of the game until you realize you still missed some, say screw it and look up a map to compare to the one in the game. And a few of the items don't appear on the map after you get them for no real reason! And a couple of hidden areas aren't seen using the X-ray visor!

I just shoot everywhere, or try to spot obvious hidden areas. The sound the upgrades make in Metroid Prime definitely make it easier to find them, though.
