I'm already done, with it taking me around 1 hour 27 minutes playing exclusively on the game pad. The only problem I had compared to my typical runs of Super Metroid using the classic controller is acquiring the Ice Beam (via Mock Ball trick) before the Speed Booster and Wave Beam. In spite of that, I still got Samus to strip down to her two piece. I really like Super Metroid as a portable experience, as I feel like I get more of the experience with it off of the TV, having the visuals and sounds much closer to me and ultimately clearer. The game pad doesn't complete the transition for Super Metroid, so I would make a third purchase of this classic if it were to come to the 3DS's VC. It's certainly able to work on that system based on how it went using the game pad.

this will be fun...again.

I'm ashamed at my current inability to have a 100% file, let alone doing it in ways that are too quick for casuals to handle!!! Maybe I'll finally do either this time?

I had a SNES back in the day but surprisingly missed out on quite a few classics. This is one of them... and I didn't get it on the Wii VC either. The other is LttP. So very hyped about being able to get it, would have happily paid the $10.40 esp now it's on the GamePad. Will get it for 30c in an instant.

.......... I just hope they put LttP on the VC soon so I can say I've played both :)

@Tasuki: No double jump dude. but there are Hi-Jump boots found later on and of course wall jumping as well.

I miss Japanese games, the good stuff... Games that are imaginative, have good and unique gameplay, a great soundtrack, and replay value.

Played a little while and saved after killing Spore Spawn. I've never tried speed runs but this time I think I'll at least try to get a good time. I'm not trying to get all items since I have no idea where some of those are. I really like Metroid games but to me it's all about beating them. I'm just too lazy to try speed runs and 100% items.

Wall jumping allows you to reach almost anything in the game, to the point of easy sequence breaking. I could explain how to do it, but there are some characters in Brinstar who can show you once you get power bombs.

In addition to gaining the Hi-Jump Boots, and wall jumping, you could also attempt to repeatedly bomb jump up to it (this takes precise timing to do this however, and I didn't get the hang of it until the game's end).

Played about half an hour again and killed Kraid and Crocomire. I still seem to remember where to go although I have only beaten it once about a year ago but that might change soon.

Can you only view it once you beat the game? Can you go back on the same save and shoot for 100%. Sorry, it's been 15 years since I've played...

No, you have to gather everything in one go. Then you have to beat the game to see your percentage.

I have to ask. Has anyone received their CN coins for downloading this game on the Wii U VC?

No and I didn't for any of the other promo games either. Not that it would matter that much given there's nothing much at all to get in the Australian stars catalogue right now. I did get my couple of cents worth of points on the Nintendo Network Premium promotion thing but ;)

@skywake You got that right, club nintendo is bare as usual and I have 4100+ star points (not including points cards laying around), I wish they'd offer VC games or even those CN DS games that japan received. I don't really see myself maxing out my Premium promotion thing anytime soon, but oh will be awesome to get $5 credit when I do.
