    I have decided not to allow websites other than Gamefaqs (www.gamefaqs.com),
    IGN (faqs.ign.com), Gamerhelp (www.gamerhelp.com) & Gamespot (www.gamespot.com)
    to host my FAQs from now on.
    Please don't ask, because I will not grant permission.  It's just that too many
    sites don't keep their version of my FAQ up to date which makes for a lot of
    hassle in my mailbox.
    So if anyone sees this FAQ on any site other than those mentioned above, please
    let me know and I will take care of the situation, thanks.

                                     (B) CONTROLS
    ###############################################################################
    
    The controls for this game are very simple, and are as follows:
    
    Left/Right - Moves your character [Samus] left or right.
    Up - Angles your gun vertically, also used to climb up ledges when hanging from
         them.
    Down - Used to crouch or morph into a ball form.
    
    
    A - Jumps.
    B - Fires your weapon.
    L - Angles your gun diagonally upward while held.
    R - Hold this down and press B to fire missiles once you get them.
    
    
    Start - Map screen, you can also check your status from here or engage sleep
            mode on the GBA.
    Select - Not Used.
    
    
    Wall Jump - You can jump off of a wall if you jump towards it, then press the
                opposite direction and the jump button as you touch the wall.  The
                timing can be difficult but with a little practice it will become
                an important skill.
    
    Screw Attack - Before you have the item that lets you do this any time you can
                   actually do it with the charge beam.  Just charge a shot and
                   [spin] jump into an enemy.
    
    Super Jump - Once you have the speed booster you can do one of two helpful
                 moves with it, this is one of them.  Run until Samus starts
                 flashing, then press down to stay charged up for a brief period.
                 Now hold up and jump to make Samus shoot straight up into the air
                 with blinding speed.
    
    Shoulder Charge - This is the other move that the speed booster lets you
                      perform.  Basically you charge it up just like the super
                      jump, then you need to move left/right and jump into the air
                      before pushing A and the direction [left/right] you want to
                      travel in.

    ###############################################################################
    
    (Taken from the game's intro)
    
    "I'd been assigned to watch over Biologic's research team so I once again found
    myself on the surface of SR388.
    
    It was there that I was attacked by a life-form I had never encountered before.
    
    It was only later that I learned the identity of my attacker: the parasitic
    organism we now know as X.  Unaware of my condition, I was returning to the
    station when disaster struck.
    
    Once the X had infested my central nervous system, I lost consciousness and my
    ship drifted into an asteroid belt.
    
    The ship's emergency systems automatically ejected the escape pod before
    impact.  Biologic's vessel recovered it and transported me to Galactic
    Federation HQ.
    
    However, during the journey, the X multiplied within me, corrupting large areas
    of my Power Suit.
    
    It then came to light that the organic components of my Power Suit had become
    so integrated with my system that it could not be removed while I was
    unconscious.  Large portions of my suit had to be surgically removed,
    dramatically altering my physical appearance.  However, the X in my central
    nervous system were too embedded to be removed safely.  I was given a minimal
    chance of survival.
    
    Then, someone found a cure.
    
    They proposed using a Metroid cell to make an anti-X vaccine.  It seems that
    the Federation had managed to preserve a cell culture from the last infant
    Metroid from SR388.  The serum was prepared and injected without delay.
    
    The X parasites were immediately and completely destroyed.
    
    As for me, one life ended... yet I survived, reborn as something different.
    
    Pondering this fact, I realize...  I owe the Metroid hatchling my life twice
    over.
    
    
    We'll soon be arriving at the B.S.L. research station.  I must prepare for
    docking.
    
    
    The ship's computer has notified me of our approach to the Biologic Space Labs,
    or B.S.L, research station.  During my surgery, the research team sent the last
    batch of creatures we captured there, as well as the infected pieces of my
    Power Suit.  After regaining consciousness, I learned that an unexplained
    explosion rocked the station.  For some reason, this awoke a nameless fear in
    my heart, and now I am being sent there to investigate.  My mission on the
    B.S.L station will be overseen by my new ship's computer.  Following the
    commands of this blunt, computerized CO is something I have to bear, as it was
    a condition of my taking the ship.  For someone who dislikes taking orders,
    this is the second time I've found myself having to do so.  It makes me recall
    my other CO..."

                                       (D) ITEMS
    ###############################################################################
    
    When you defeat enemies they leave behind one of three coloured X parasites:
    
    Yellow - Restores some health.
    Green - Restores some missiles.
    Red - Fully restores health and missiles.

    tags so they should be pretty hard to read by mistake.
    
    
    Also when I refer to pink or green rooms, I'm talking about their colour on
    the map screen.  Similarly a 2x3 room for example would refer to a room on the
    map that's 2 units wide and 3 units tall.
    
    
    ---------------------------------
    B.S.L Research Station: Main Deck
    ---------------------------------
    
    After the intro your ship will inform you that there has been an explosion in
    the Quarantine Bay, it will then mark the area on your map.  It also tells you
    to stop at the Navigation Room on the way and uplink from there.
    
    Simply head left through this empty room to the next room.  Work your way left
    through the next empty room to end up in a vertical shaft.  Jump up the
    platforms making note of the red door halfway up as you left through the door
    at the top of the shaft.  Go left through the empty hallway to end up in
    another vertical shaft.  Go left to enter the Navigation room, these rooms show
    up as N's on your map.  After being warned of bio-signs in the Quarantine Bay
    the door on your left will open, enter the room beyond.
    
    Work your way to the top of this dim shaft and enter the door on the left up
    there.  Drop to the bottom of this short shaft and enter the Quarantine Bay on
    your left.  Kill the lone enemy here and let the X parasite get you, then exit
    this room and return to the Navigation Room.
    
    The computer will give you the following lengthy message:
    
    
    "This is unfortunate news... The specimens brought back by the field team were
    infected by X parasites.  The X can mimic its prey; any specimen could have
    hosted it.  Before the explosion, a security sensor scanned one... The
    gelatinous X parasites invade and rapidly reproduce, killing the host creature.
    They also absorb DNA and use it to mimic the host.  You were almost killed by
    an X infection.  Only the Metroid vaccine saved your life.  It seems the
    Metroids were the main predators of the X.  That's why the vaccine worked so
    quickly and so well.  But it has also changed your cellular makeup.  You will
    never be infected by X again... In fact you can now absorb any free-floating X
    parasites without a host by merely touching them.  This will allow you to
    replenish health and restore weapons.  You may also restore latent abilities
    this way, so pursue free X parasites whenever you possibly can.  This station
    is home to many species...some violent ones.  We must keep the X out of the
    breeding environments at all costs.  This is vital, Samus.  I am already
    detecting massive bio-signs in this region.  The X are gathering.  This may be
    our chance to exterminate them, but... You are only at 10% battle capacity.
    Your chance of survival is extremely low.  The Federation needs you alive and
    on duty Samus..."
    
    
    All locks on Level 0 hatches get released at this point, so go right to the
    shaft beyond.  Work your way halfway up the shaft and head through the door on
    your right.  Kill the enemy here and proceed right to the Save Room to save
    your game, press up on the platform there to save.
    
    Go right to the next room and kill the enemy on your right, then climb the
    shaft and kill another enemy on the way to the top.  Go right to the next room
    at the top and use the Navigation Room computer to learn about downloadable
    weapons data from HQ.  You can now get missiles if you proceed to the Data [D]
    room north of you on the map.
    
    In the next room jump up the short shaft and go right to the next room.  Use
    the elevator here to continue your journey to the Data Room, along the way
    Samus will reflect.
    
    
    "That computer reminds me of a gruff Federation CO I served under named Adam
    Malkovich.  He called me "Lady" on missions; from anyone else, it would've
    sounded sarcastic, but Adam made it sound dignified.  Out of respect and with
    some irony, I named the computer after him."
    
    
    Enter the room on your left and use the Recharge Room [R] on your left if you
    need it.  Otherwise enter the Navigation Room above it and proceed left to the
    Data Room.  Step up to the machine here to download your missile data, you use
    missiles by holding R and pressing B to fire them.
    
    Return right to the Navigation Room to hear about a new problem:
    
    
    "Electrical interference has knocked out the elevators on the Main Deck.  This
    may be related to the X.  I'll work on it.  As for you...  Try to find another
    way to the target."
    
    
    Now that you have missiles you should know where to get them if you run out,
    enemies should now leave behind a green X parasite that will restore missiles
    if you grab it.  You can also go to any Recharge Room to get your missiles
    back.  Jump right across the gaps in the large room then fire one missile at
    the panel on the right wall to open up a passage.  Take the passage right and
    use three missiles to take out the creature beyond.  Head right to fall down
    another passage, work your way down until you see a ladder on your right.
    Climb it and continue falling down, grab the missiles on your right when you
    see them to increase your total to 15.  Head left to what looks like a dead end
    and fire a few shots at the top bump of the left wall to uncover some more
    missiles.
    
    Now that you have 20 missiles you can head right until you reach the L-shaped
    room.  Head right at the top and save your game then return to the bottom of
    the previous room.  Use three missiles to destroy the eye creature on the door,
    then restore your health/missiles and save your game.  Enter the room beyond
    the eye creature and get ready to finally get some more energy.
    
    Hang off the first ledge and hold left to get the proper footing before jumping
    off the wall to the next ledge.  Use this technique to get up to the top and
    head right for your first energy tank.  Drop right and get ready to fight your
    first boss.
    
    
    MORPH BALL BOSS
    
    Fire a missile at the bubble creature to get it to land and take on a grounded
    form.  You can't damage the boss if he's facing away from you, otherwise try
    to hit him with missiles as they do more damage than your basic shots.  Fire
    one at a time, as usually the boss will counter-attack shortly after in one of
    three ways.  The first involves him charging at you in ball form and is easily
    avoided by jumping over him.  The second attack sends flames along the ground
    towards you, jump to one of the ledges to avoid this and jump off the wall over
    the boss.  The last attack is a fast-moving blue wave of energy that you can
    jump over but you need to know when it's coming first.  The boss should do a
    small swipe with one of his claws before throwing the wave so be on the
    lookout, otherwise keep attacking him until he reverts to his bubble form.  He
    will release some energy and missile parasites for you to collect, so grab them
    as you shoot him three more times (when he's not flashing) to beat him.  Now
    simply jump up and touch him in his final form to get the Morph Ball ability.
    
    
    Head left and use the ball to work your way through the passage, making sure
    you shoot [from the ladder] the one wall you can't pass through.  Continue left
    and save your game, then go to the Navigation room above you for further
    instructions.
    
    
    "Samus, it's as I feared.  The breeding environments have been invaded by X
    parasites.  Sector 1 (SRX) shows several abnormalities on bio-sensors.  Sector
    1 is a simulation of the SR388 ecosystem.  To get there, take the Main Elevator
    to the access shaft and use Elevator 1."
    
    
    Destroy the enemy barrier guarding the Recharge Room below you and use the room
    before using the Save Room below.  Continue left past the Navigation room
    south-west of you, ignore the room on your left for now and use the ball to
    enter the room midway up the shaft on the right.  Collect the missiles here and
    head to the top of the shaft in the previous room.
    
    In the room on your left you'll want to use the ball to continue left towards
    the elevator.  Take the elevator down and watch...
    
    *********
    *SPOILER*

    ...as what appears to be a clone of Samus blasts through a wall and the door
    you just came through before disappearing.
    
    ******
    *HERE*
    ******
    
    Head left to reach the Sector 1 elevator and take it down to the sector.
    
    
    --------------------------------
    B.S.L Research Station: Sector 1
    --------------------------------
    
    Go right to the Navigation Room to receive the map for the area and the
    following update.
    
    
    "The Main Elevator leading to the access shaft has been severely damaged.  It
    will be totally unusable for some time, unfortunately.  Some unknown agent is
    at work.  Something very powerful... certainly not human.  I'll report when I
    know more.  Now, listen closely.  The X in Sector 1 have invaded the
    atmospheric stabilizers.  They must want to alter the environment to their
    needs.  They are already reproducing.  Clear all 5 atmospheric stabilizers to
    stop them."
    
    
    Continue right and use the Save and recharge rooms before entering the large
    room beyond.  Drop to the bottom and kill any enemies as you enter the door on
    your right.  Kill the small blue blob enemies and the large one here for some
    energy, then use missiles to get rid of the barrier to the next room.  Use the
    metallic ledge to get to the top part of this rocky room, then head right and
    down to reach a trapped enemy.  Use your missiles to destroy it and clear the
    first atmospheric stabilizer, then go right to the next room.
    
    Destroy the grounded enemies here first, then run past the flying ones to lure
    them to the ground.  They then start to slowly fly back up, you should use this
    chance to fire straight up at them while they're vulnerable.  Also use the ball
    to enter the pipe on the right for an energy tank before entering the next
    room.  Shoot through the first wall and work your way up past some enemies,
    shoot the ground above you to continue your climb.  Head right and jump OVER
    the thin ground below the pipe as you'll fall right through it, then destroy
    the enemy to clear another atmospheric stabilizer.
    
    With two out of five of these out of the way you can exit this room and drop to
    the bottom of the shaft.  Head right until you reach the Save Room and use it,
    then return left two rooms.  Head left midway up the shaft and jump the
    charging enemies here, then you can shoot them in the back to beat them.  In
    the shaft beyond you'll want to go left at the top, use the ladder above you to
    safely cross the lava and get the missiles.  Return to the shaft and work your
    way to the bottom while avoiding the enemies, then go right to the next room.
    Beat or jump over the enemy here then go right to the next room.  Use the
    ladders to reach the atmospheric stabilizer in the top right corner and clear
    it of the enemy before going right to the next room.
    
    Kill/avoid the enemy as you go right two rooms, jump up the platforms in the
    third room.  Use the ladder above you to reach the atmospheric stabilizer and
    clear the enemy from it before going left to the next room.
    
    Kill the enemy and grab the missiles, then return to the previous room.  Drop
    to the ground and head right to the next room, then work your way up the shaft
    to the top.  The enemies can only be hurt by missiles so destroy them if they
    get in your way.  Go left at the top and shoot the flashing button to open the
    gate and continue left.  Use the ladder above you to head left and shoot
    through the wall, then continue left to the shaft.  Drop through the ground
    under you and go left past some enemies to the Save Room.  Return to the shaft
    and climb the ladder, then use missiles to get rid of the barrier and enter the
    room for a boss battle.
    
    
    CHARGE BEAM BOSS
    
    Head left and shoot the ball that the statue is holding to reveal the boss,
    then try to avoid its shots as it follows you around.  Hit its red eye with a
    missile when it appears and repeat until its dead, then grab the Charge Beam.
    
    
    Go back to the Save Room to save your game, then return to the boss room and go
    through the door at the top right.  Shoot the ground above you and go through
    the door above, then work your way to the right side of the room.  Use the ball
    to go left and work your way up to the atmospheric stabilizer, use missiles
    like usual to clear the enemy from it.
    
    Now you should work your way right to the Save Room, then use your map to go
    towards the Navigation Room near the elevator.  Use the Save Room before you
    get there and then get your new instructions.  You need to head for Sector 2
    now so take the elevator back up, Samus will reflect once again.
    
    
    "As I listened to the briefing, my thoughts turned to Adam.  The real Adam
    understood me well.  He would end orders by saying, "Any objections, Lady?"  He
    knew I wouldn't disagree.  That was just his way of noting our trust.  I wonder
    if I can trust this computer too..."
    
    
    Head right to the Sector 2 elevator and take it down to that sector.
    
    
    --------------------------------
    B.S.L Research Station: Sector 2

    Go right to the Navigation Room for an update.

    "I have learned the identity of our mystery saboteur...  Samus, it's an X
    mimicking you.  I have named it the SA-X.  I believe the SA-X came from the
    capsule containing your infected suit parts.  It used a Power Bomb to escape
    the Quarantine Bay.  That explosion breached the capsules containing all the X
    that started this disaster.  But the SA-X is definitely our biggest worry right
    now.  The SA-X is mimicking you at full power.  You can't face it.  If you see
    the SA-X, just run.  Don't think about fighting...  You are still very
    vulnerable to cold, an unexpected side-effect of the Metroid vaccine.  Like
    Metroids, you can be frozen by an Ice Beam.  Of course, the SA-X is armed with
    the Ice Beam.  Stay away.  If you see it, just run.  HQ says they have Bomb
    data ready in the Data Room.  Bombs will help you find a way out if the SA-X
    traps you."
    
    ******
    *HERE*
    ******
    
    
    The Data Room is sealed with a Level 1 lock, so you need to find the Security
    Room first to release all Level 1 locks.  Unfortunately the Security Room isn't
    marked on your map, so use the Recharge and Save Rooms on your right before you
    do anything.  Drop to the bottom of the shaft and shoot the ground below you to
    continue right, then climb to the top of this side of the shaft and go right to
    the next room.  Kill the enemies if you need to as you go right to the shaft
    beyond.  Work your way to the top and go left to the Security Room, then drop
    down and use the console to unlock all Level 1 locks.
    
    Return to the large shaft room, then enter the blue door midway down on the
    right if you need some energy/missiles.  Otherwise head left at the bottom of
    the shaft and continue your path to the Data Room.  Get your bomb data and
    return to the previous room.
    
    Use bombs in the top right corner to get some missiles, then drop to the bottom
    of the shaft.  You'll notice that the door on your right is now stuck closed so
    you need to find a new route to the Navigation Room.  Head left to the wall and
    use a bomb to drop into a hidden passage, then head right for a Save Room.  Go
    left from here to reach a vertical shaft, then set a bomb on the single block
    to make a tower appear.  Shoot the single square in the left wall from the
    tower to open a gap, then pass through it to find some missiles.  Set a bomb on
    the single square on the bottom floor [not the one sitting on the floor] to get
    a tower to appear, then jump to the missiles.
    
    Use bombs to work your way down the shaft in the previous room, then go left to
    the next room.  Just drop down this short shaft and enter the next room, then
    use bombs to make your way to the bottom left corner of the next room.  Roll to
    the right wall and use a bomb to open up a tunnel, follow it for some missiles
    and shoot the ground above you to get out again.
    
    Head right to the next room and use bombs to uncover a tower to get over the
    one seemingly impossible wall.  Go right through the next two rooms to reach a
    Save Room, then return to the shaft that you quickly passed through.  Enter the
    second door on your right and destroy the enemies inside for energy before
    going right until you reach a Save Room.  Continue right for an energy tank,
    then bomb the floor to your left to uncover a passage.  Drop down and use
    missiles on the barrier, then get ready for a boss battle.
    
    
    HI-JUMP/JUMP BALL BOSS
    
    This boss jumps around a lot and tries to land on you, you need to watch out
    for his jumps where he floats down slower than usual.  When this happens you
    want to fire 1-2 missiles straight up into him from below, then hopefully get
    out of his way before he lands on you.  After you repeat this a few times the
    boss will take on the familiar near-death bubble form that the past bosses have
    used when they are close to death.  Just fire a total of 4 missiles at the
    boss between flashing intervals and you can collect the Hi-Jump/Jump Ball.
    
    
    Return to the Save Room, then head left until you reach another destroyed
    door.  Bomb the floor beside it and drop to the room below where you'll watch
    the SA-X open a door below you and leave through it.  Shoot the ground at the
    right wall and go left to the shaft room.  Enter the second door from the
    bottom on the left wall, then use the ladder to get the missiles and return to
    the shaft.
    
    Use the dead creatures as platforms as you work your way to the very top of the
    shaft, then use some bombs to reach the door to the next room.  Kill/avoid the
    enemy as you enter the next room, then kill/avoid another enemy and jump from
    the enemy to the ledge above you.  Use bombs to enter a hidden passage on your
    right for some missiles, then jump to the tunnel above the one that you entered
    and use bombs to return to the previous room.
    
    Hold left and you should land on the top platform safely, then roll left and
    bomb your way into the room.  Go left through the middle door in this room,
    then jump the enemies as you get the missiles beyond.
    
    Return to the shaft and go left at the top, then use the Recharge and Save
    Rooms before using the Navigation Room to get your new instructions.  You need
    to head for Sector 4 now where the SA-X is causing trouble so take the elevator
    back up.  On the way up Samus will reflect once more.
    
    
    "The SA-X.  An enemy with my strongest abilities.  But does it have reason?
    Probably not.  It's just a killing machine.  In my current state, I can't face
    it head-on.  The SA-X is me, only heartless.  I must stop it before it learns
    its potential and threatens the universe..."
    
    
    Head right to the Sector 4 elevator and take it down to that sector.
    
    
    --------------------------------
    B.S.L Research Station: Sector 4
    --------------------------------
    
    Go left to the Navigation Room for an update.
    
    
    "This sector has taken more damage than expected...  I knew the X were powerful
    and destructive, but still...  This seems to be purposeful.  We certainly can't
    rule out the possibility that the SA-X has a high degree of intelligence.  I
    find the X fascinating, especially the SA-X.  ...But I digress.  This sector is
    home to a very large creature the researchers called Serris.  It is capable of
    moving and attacking at ultra-high speed.  The more senseless and widespread
    destruction here may be attributable to Serris.  No doubt the SA-X released it,
    but I can't be sure why yet.  Serris has returned often to the breeding tank
    here.  It's natural behavior must be to go back to it periodically.  It's a
    valuable specimen, but you have been authorized to terminate it.  If you don't,
    it may invade other sectors."
    
    
    The computer also warns you that there are sections of electrified water that
    you should be on the lookout for.  Use the Recharge and Save Rooms on your
    left, then head left through the room beyond and take the left door.  Run past
    the small room and climb up the shaft in the next room, then bomb the blocks
    under the ladder and use it to go left.  Drop to the platform below the chains,
    then continue left and jump through a gap in the ceiling to a hidden area.
    Head right and use the Save Room when you reach it, then return to the previous
    room and use wall jumps to get up the short shaft.  Use bombs on the horizontal
    block to uncover a tunnel, then bomb the left wall when you reach it.  Finally
    roll left and use another bomb to find some missiles.
    
    Climb the small ladder and fire a par of missiles left to uncover a passage,
    enter it and work your way down to a good sized-platform.  Jump the gap and
    jump straight up while shooting right to reveal a passage.  Enter it for some
    more missiles, then drop to the ground and return to the Save Room.
    
    Head back down to the large room with the water, then go left to the next room.
    Try not to fall in the water as you take the top left door to the next room,
    if you do fall you need to use missiles on the large fish.  Use the ladders to
    work your way to the door at the top of this room, then get the energy tank
    beyond.
    
    Return to the previous room and enter the door midway town for a Save Room.
    Head to the bottom of the previous room and go right to the fish room, then
    take the bottom left door to the next room.  Shoot the large block above you
    and jump up to the small tunnel, then use a bomb to get rid of the blocks below
    the ladder.  Use the ladder to reach the other side and jump through the gap in
    the ceiling to reach a hidden area.  Climb the ladder all the way up and roll
    through a hidden passage on your left to find some missiles.
    
    Return to the large water room below and use bombs on the left wall to continue
    left to the next room.  Shoot the large block above you and work your way to
    the top of the shaft by climbing the ladders and shooting/bombing blocks that
    get in your way.  Use the Save Room at the top and bomb the crack in the right
    wall to enter the room beyond, then bomb the block there to continue to the
    next room.  Ignore the skeleton as you go right to the next room, then climb
    the shaft and drop right to the barrier.  Destroy the barrier like usual and
    enter the next room ready for the boss battle.
    
    
    SPEED BOOSTER BOSS
    
    Climb up to the floating platform and walk around to get the battle to begin,
    then parts of the platform will crumble and the boss will appear.  He has no
    attacks really, all you need to do is try and make sure that he doesn't touch
    you.  The boss moves VERY fast when flashing so just try your best to avoid him
    until he slows down again.  Then you should fire a missile at his head, as you
    can't damage him anywhere else.  After being hit the boss will speed up again
    and often try to hit you with a horizontal charge across all platforms at once.
    After five hits the boss will take on its weakened bubble form, so just hit it
    with five more missiles between flashing intervals to end the battle.  Now you
    can grab your Speed Booster and take the top right door to the next room.
    
    
    Run all the way right and bomb the wall on your left, then shoot the enemies as
    you go left.  Finally run right to drop down into the hidden area you visited
    earlier.  Head right for the Save Room, then head back left to the large
    vertical shaft.  Enter the blue door on your left and run all the way left,
    then use the pump to lower the water level and get your missiles below.
    
    Return to the shaft and go right to the next room, then kill the enemies on the
    ground.  Run all the way right to the next room for some missiles.
    
    Run all the way right from this room and return to the Navigation Room for more
    instructions.
    
    
    "So Serris had been infected by the X, too...  Well, as a result, you recovered
    another ability.  At this rate, you may be able to face the SA-X yet...  But
    that's still a ways off.  HQ has more support data.  This time it's Missile
    upgrade data.  You desperately need this, but the Data Room here is sealed with
    a Level 4 lock, the highest security level.  Let's avoid opening sensitive
    areas unless it's necessary.  Also the route to the Data Room in Sector 2 is
    blocked by still more SA-X activity.  I note a deliberate activity pattern, as
    if it is blocking your recovery intentionally.  Samus, it looks like your best
    option for this download is in Sector 3."
    
    
    So you'll want to use the Recharge and Save rooms before going to Sector 3.
    
    
    --------------------------------
    B.S.L Research Station: Sector 3
    --------------------------------
    
    Go right to the Navigation Room for an update.
    
    
    "Thankfully the X have not invaded this area yet...  The Data Room here is
    sealed by another security hatch.  In order to download, you must find the
    Security Room here and activate Level 2 hatches.  This may allow the SA-X and X
    parasites into the area...  But we are left with no choice.  Your recovery is
    our main goal."
    
    
    The computer also warns you to avoid ultra-heated areas, also there are none of
    these areas on the route to the Security Room so treat them as dead-ends if you
    find one.  Use the Recharge and Save Rooms, then go right to the next room.
    When you reach the door below you'll want to shoot/bomb the ground to get to
    the ground floor of the room, then open the left door and shoot all the debris
    on your right.  Run left through the door and gain enough speed to break
    through the blocks in the next room, then press down before you hit the green
    door to stay charged.  Quickly use a super jump between the two rightmost
    columns of the blocks above you and you should destroy them, then you can
    shoot the blocks left of them and jump up there.  Use a bomb in the small gap
    on your left and roll left to the Security Room.
    
    After you release all Level 2 locks go right to the previous room, then clear
    out the enemies before running right and jumping to break through the blocks
    and reach the door.  Enter the room beyond and go right to the next room.
    Jump to the ledge above the barrier and kill the enemy before going right to
    the wall, you should fall down to the ground floor.  Now you'll want to open
    the barrier and wait as close to the left door as possible before running right
    to the next room and the wall there.  If you got enough speed you should
    destroy a few blocks of the ground on your way, then you can go back left a
    little and fall into a hidden passage.  Go right to the shaft and start
    climbing up it, then go left at the top and bomb the third block from the
    bottom in the left wall.  Enter the passage for some missiles, then roll to the
    left wall and shoot the blocks on your right.
    
    Enter the new tunnel and use a bomb when you can't go any farther.  Enter this
    new tunnel and use a bomb once again when you get stopped.  Go up and enter the
    door on your right, then kill the enemies as you go right to the Data Room.
    
    Now that you have super missiles you'll want to head back left until you fall
    down a hole in the ground, then go right for a Save Room.  Continue right until
    you reach some enemies, then kill them and use your super missiles to get more
    missiles.  Return left and use the Recharge and Save Rooms, then climb out the
    hole again and go left.  You should see some debris falling from the ceiling
    so head through the door on your right and a robotic boss should appear.
    
    
    ROBOT BOSS
    
    The most important part of this battle is to stay on the ladder above you, this
    way the boss can't touch you directly.  He will move horizontally and make
    small jumps but none of these should hit you.  He will also fire a bomb every
    so often, these can hit you if you're too close to him when he fires one.
    Otherwise just hang above the bomb when it stops moving, this way the resulting
    columns of fire should miss you completely.  Just fire a missile down at the
    light-grey middle section of the machine, and avoid the bomb.  Repeat this for
    about ten hits and the battle will end with the boss escaping.
    
    
    You'll want to use the Recharge and Save rooms before following the path that
    the boss opened up for you.  Kill the enemies as you go left to the next room,
    then drop down and kill the enemy as you use a bomb to continue left.  When you
    see the narrow tunnel above you set a bomb below it to make a tower appear.
    You can then set bombs above you to uncover an Energy Tank.
    
    Continue left to the shaft beyond and use the Recharge and Save rooms before
    you use the Navigation Room for an update.
    
    
    "I see that you encountered a rogue Security Robot.  You may destroy it if you
    meet it again.  Your safety is vital.  But as to your brief... Level 2 security
    locks are released, so Sectors 5 and 6 are open.  That means those sectors have
    likely been infiltrated by X.  They are much harder to stop than we initially
    suspected...  You're still susceptible to cold from the vaccine side-effects,
    so you'll take damage if you even set foot inside there [Sector 5].  Avoid
    Sector 5 for now, but in the meantime, HQ is working on data to adjust your
    suit for extreme temperatures.  Once we have the transmission, you can download
    it, but...  The X have destroyed all the Data Rooms you have used so far.  I no
    longer doubt their capacity for critical thought.  You'll have to use the Data
    Room in the night habitat, Sector 6 (NOC)."
    
    
    Take the elevator back up on your way to Sector 6, then watch as...
    
    
    *********
    *SPOILER*
    *********
    
    A mysterious transmission takes place.
    
    
    "Mystery person: Does Samus suspect anything?
    
    Computer: No I do not think so.
    
    Mystery person: Good.  Monitor her closely.
    
    Computer: Affirmative.  Out."
    
    ******
    *HERE*
    ******
    
    
    Head right to the Sector 6 elevator and take it down to that Sector.
    
    
    --------------------------------
    B.S.L Research Station: Sector 6
    --------------------------------
    
    Go right to the Navigation Room to receive your new instructions.
    
    
    "The Varia Suit is here from HQ, ready to download.  Get moving to a Data Room.
    But there's a problem...  X from the sub-zero sector ARC are in Sector 6 (NOC),
    and they...  They've been changed by the cold.  If you absorb one, you'll be
    frozen from within.  This seems like a deliberate tactic.  Once you download
    the Varia Suit modification, you'll be out of danger.  Just be extremely
    careful until then.  Remember, avoid the blue X.  Use your beam to stun them in
    order to get by."
    
    
    Use the Recharge and Save Rooms on your right, then shoot the enemies in the
    next room as you go right to the next.  Drop to the bottom of the room and bomb
    the flat part in the left wall, then follow the tunnel for some missiles.
    
    Use missiles on the barrier and bomb the flat part of the right wall for
    another tunnel, this one leads to an Energy Tank.  Set a bomb in the top right
    corner and follow the tunnel that appears to reach the Energy Tank, then return
    to the previous room.
    
    Enter the door at the top right, then shoot/avoid the X as you run to the next
    room.  Shoot/avoid some more X as you drop to the bottom of the shaft and go
    right to the next room, then work your way to the bottom of the room.
    Avoid/shoot the X and take the left door, then run left while shooting X so
    that you break the blocks with your speed booster.  Drop down and run left for
    an energy tank in the room beyond, then return right until you reach a Save
    Room.
    
    Return left to the Energy Tank room and use bombs on the platform to reveal a
    tunnel, then follow it to the next room.  Go to the right wall and use a bomb
    to get into the tunnel below, then head left to see the SA-X enter the room.
    Quickly head right to the wall and wait as it uses a power bomb and continues
    right, then follow it and hold right as you fall down a passage and grab a
    ledge.  Wait until the SA-X leaves through the door below you before dropping
    down and using the same door.  Kill the enemies and shoot the blocks on your
    left to reach the room beyond, then go left to the Save Room.  Work your way to
    the bottom of the previous room and destroy the blocks in the bottom left
    corner.  Bomb that same corner and roll left to a hidden area, then kill the
    enemies and use bombs in the top right corner for some missiles.
    
    Return to the previous room and continue right towards the Data Room.  Destroy
    the barrier with missiles when you reach it and enter the Data Room.  Watch the
    X take the powerup and escape, then follow him right and get ready for a boss
    battle.
    
    
    VARIA SUIT BOSS
    
    This boss has no attacks really, it just tries to bump into you to cause
    damage.  This makes the battle quite easy, in fact the trickiest part is
    realizing that your missiles are useless.  You'll want to use charge beam shots
    on the boss until it takes on the near-death bubble form.  You can then use
    your missiles to finish it off and get your Varia Suit.
    
    
    Go right until you reach the room with the X, they will now heal you so you
    don't need to shoot them.  Climb to the top of the shaft and go left to the
    next room, then jump over the crumbling blocks beside the missiles as you
    collect them.
    
    While falling be sure to hold left so you grab the ledge midway down and enter
    the tunnel.  Kill the enemies and shoot the flat part of the ceiling for more
    missiles.
    
    Fall to the bottom of the shaft and go right until you reach the Save Room,
    then return to the previous room and climb the shaft before going right to the
    next room.  Kill/avoid the enemies as you climb the short shaft and go left to
    the next room.  Kill the lone enemy and follow the tunnel left to the large
    room, then enter the door in the top left corner.  Take the door above you
    right to the next room, then go past all the X and enemies to what looks like a
    missile room.  However when you get close the missiles will take off and fly
    away, bomb the wall behind them for some real missiles.
    
    Now return to the Navigation Room [use the Recharge and Save Rooms first] for
    more instructions.
    
    
    "How did that X download the Varia Suit data?  This doesn't seem to make any
    sense at all, unless the X...  Unless the X have the ability to process data
    organically...  At any rate you have the Varia Suit data.  Now you will be
    protected from extreme temperatures.  More importantly the SA-X will no longer
    be able to freeze you, so you can escape easier.  But you're still too weak.
    That thing is too much for you.  You currently have no way of damaging it.  But
    my simulations indicate that a penetrating weapon like the Plasma Beam might
    work.  Developing modifications data will take HQ some time, though.  There's
    also a chance that you may be able to restore your Plasma Beam by absorbing a
    large Core-X, as you did with the Charge Beam function.  As for restoring Ice
    Beam functionality, I doubt it...  Your current cellular makeup would reject
    that addition.  Therefore HQ has developed an Ice Missile upgrade.  This will
    add a freezing effect to your missiles.  It will help.  Go to Sector 5 (ARC)
    for the download."
    
    
    Take the elevator back up and go left to use the Sector 5 elevator.
    
    
    --------------------------------
    B.S.L Research Station: Sector 5
    --------------------------------
    
    Go right to the Navigation Room to get an update on your goal.
    
    
    "You need to download data for the Ice Missile upgrade but...  As you might
    expect, the Data Room here is secured.  Level 3 security hatches are yellow.
    Release the security lock and download data as usual.  And experiment with
    those new Missiles.  They will be helpful..."
    
    
    Use the Recharge and Save rooms on your right, then drop down the shaft and
    land on the ledge midway down.  Kill the enemy and shoot the block in the top
    right corner of this alcove, then fire a missile into the gap before rolling
    right to the next room.  Drop to the ground floor and head right past the
    enemies, then climb the ladder above and work your way to the bottom right
    corner.  In the next room you'll want to avoid the armoured enemies as they try
    to charge into you.  Once you've gone as far down as you can go use bombs to go
    further, then enter the door on your left.  Kill the enemies here and open the
    door to the previous room, then run all the way right and use your speed
    booster to destroy some blocks in the previous room.  Finally work your way to
    the ground floor and use a bomb to continue right to the next room.  Use a bomb
    to take out the walls, then kill the enemies and go right to the next room.
    Drop down the shaft and bomb the middle of the floor, then drop down and take
    the door on your left.  Use the Save Room and go left, then go left past the
    next room.  Go left from this small room to reach the Security Room and open
    the level 3 locks.
    
    Head right and work your way up the shaft, most of the 2x2 blocks crumble away
    if you walk on them so avoid them.  Near the top you'll have to shoot above you
    to continue to the door.  Use the Save Room here and continue to the Data Room.
    
    Now that you have Ice Missiles you'll want to run right and shoot the ground,
    then drop down and hug the right wall to land on the ladder.  Use an freeze the
    flying enemy near the left door, then use it as a platform to reach that room.
    Ignore the fake energy tank in this room and use bombs in the left corner to
    get the real Energy Tank.
    
    Return to the shaft and fall to the bottom, then go left a room.  Let the X
    change the enemy here, then freeze it and shoot the ceiling above it to get up
    to the next room before going left.  Kill the enemy on the left here and avoid
    the X so the enemy below changes, then shoot the left door and run left across
    the frozen enemy and through the speed booster blocks in the next room.  From
    here you can find your way back to the Navigation Room, be sure to shoot the
    right wall to get past speed blocks above you when you reach them.  Once you
    reach the large shaft near the Navigation Room, you'll want to freeze the
    enemies near the left wall to reach some missiles in the room up there.
    
    Now you can use the Recharge and Save rooms before heading to the Navigation
    Room for your next instructions.
    
    
    "Emergency in Sector 3 (PYR).  The area could melt down soon.  It seems the
    Main Boiler's cooling unit is malfunctioning.  This could easily destroy the
    entire research station, as it would likely trigger the auto-destruct
    explosives.  We have about 6 minutes.  Hurry to Sector 3 and access the Control
    Room to the side of the Main Boiler room.  Most of the systems in PYR are down
    because of this...  Again, we know who to blame.  The SA-X must have hacked
    into the system control file.  What impressive intelligence."
    
    
    This is your first timed task so quickly run left and take the elevator up,
    then go right a room and down to Sector 3.  You can always check the map
    screen to stop the timer though if you need to take a break.
    
    
    -------------------------------
    Sector 3 Revisited: Boiler Room
    -------------------------------
    
    Run right to the large shaft and drop to the ground floor, then go right a room
    and kill the enemy to reach the other side of the gate below.  Wait by the door
    and use your speed booster to destroy blocks in the room on your right, then
    drop down and continue right to the shaft.  Drop to the bottom of the shaft and
    go left a room, then use the ladders above to avoid the lava and fire below.
    Work your way left and kill the enemies so they don't knock you off the ladder,
    then enter the door beyond.  Kill the enemies on the ladder and jump right from
    the top of the ladder to reach the next door.  Kill/avoid the enemies in here
    as you go right to the small shaft, then freeze the enemies there to reach the
    door above.  Jump across the platforms in the next room and kill the ladder
    enemy, then work your way up and left to the next door below.  Jump over the
    crumbling platform and continue left, then work your way up and left to an
    enemy barrier.  Kill it and enter the Control Room, shoot the scientist here to
    reveal his true enemy form.
    
    
    WIDE BEAM BOSS
    
    This boss is very easy because he starts out in the weakened bubble form,
    simply fire missiles at his eye until he dies and get your Wide Beam.  Then use
    the console below to activate the cooling unit.
    
    
    Work your way back to the long shaft and take the right green door, then bomb
    the top of the platform for some missiles.
    
    Bomb the bottom right corner and freeze the enemy beyond to reach the door
    above, then drop to the ground floor in the next room.  Jump to the first
    platform and work your way right, using frozen enemies as platforms because the
    real platforms crumble if you land on them.  Jump from the last platform to the
    Energy Tank above, then take the nearby tunnel left for some missiles.
    
    Return to the shaft and go to the very top before taking the left door.  Bomb
    the middle of the left wall here and make your way back to the Navigation Room.
    When you reach the shaft just before be sure to take the left door midway up.
    Use the ladder to cross the lava and shoot the enemies on the way.  In the next
    room you should bomb the left wall after getting the missiles.
    
    Shoot all the blocks here and use the speed booster to run to the left wall and
    super jump through the speed booster blocks above.  Shoot the blocks on your
    right until you reach the right wall, then bomb the floor for a tower.  Use it
    to continue upwards, and shoot more blocks to reach the Energy Tank.
    
    Use the Recharge and Save Rooms before getting your instructions from the
    Navigation Room.
    
    
    "The X mimicked a crew member...  It all makes sense now.  The X can absorb the
    memories and knowledge of their prey.  What an astounding find.  HQ was very
    impressed.  But don't you find it strange?  This could have destroyed the
    station with the X in it, not to mention the SA-X.  Unusual for a
    self-preserving species like the X.  Unless...  Your presence is an even
    greater threat, a threat to the existence of X elsewhere...  This is only a
    hypothesis...  Perhaps...  Their survival instinct is in conflict with their
    newly-borrowed intelligence...  Don't let your guard down yet.  The X are still
    a threat.  Samus, I see bio-signs on the Habitation Deck.  Survivors?  The
    infected crewman you saw had survived until recently.  Maybe there's a
    chance..."
    
    
    Power to the main elevator has now been restored so go left and take the
    elevator out of sector 3, then take the main elevator back to the Main Deck.
    
    
    -------------------------
    Main Deck: Power Restored
    -------------------------
    
    Once you get off the elevator speed boost past the wrecked wall and through the
    blocks for some missiles.
    
    Now head for the first Save Room and use it before going to the top of the
    shaft left of you.  Take the left door for an elevator, go right at the top for
    another Save Room.  Go left past the elevator and freeze the two enemies above
    you to make it to the top of the shaft, then go left to the next room.  Run
    left to the gate, then shoot the block on your right and fall through it.  Open
    the gate on your right and shoot the wall on your left, then speed boost all
    the way left to break through the blocks there and end up in the bottom left
    corner of this room.  Jump against the left wall to enter a hidden passage,
    then freeze the enemies to reach the top of the new room.  Go right at the top
    and step on the pad to free the survivors, then return to the middle floor of
    the room and drop through the blocks below to reach some missiles.
    
    Return to the nearest Save Room, then take the elevator down where Samus will
    reflect.
    
    
    "Etecoons and Dachoras.  I've met these intelligent beings before.  They seemed
    to recognize me, as well.  How unusual to meet again here.  In the past,
    they've helped me unleash abilities I didn't know I had.  But where did they
    run to?  I hope they're safe..."
    
    
    Now you can proceed to the Navigation Room below for an update.
    
    
    "So the survivors were not human...  Most unfortunate.  We can now confirm the
    deaths of all crew members.  I imagined this was the case, but I had hoped it
    wasn't so.  I believe the X only infected the humans for knowledge...  That
    form is too weak for battle.  I am sure the others were merely food for the
    X...  Samus, I think they are evolving, growing stronger.  Some are now
    appearing that resist your current weapons.  HQ anticipated this and sent Power
    Bomb data as soon as the hardware team finished it.  Download it immediately.
    Our choice of Data Rooms is limited to this one in Sector 5 (ARC).  Go.  Now."
    
    
    Head straight to Sector 5 now.
    
    
    -------------------------------
    Sector 5 Revisited: Power Bombs
    -------------------------------
    
    Use the Navigation Room to reach the Recharge and Save Rooms beyond, then drop
    to the bottom of the shaft to your right.  Take the left door and kill the
    enemies before jumping to the missiles from [2 squares left] below.
    
    Now head for the Data Room to get your Power Bombs, then go right and fall down
    the shaft.  Go left to the Save Room, then go right a room and use a power
    bomb.  Drop down the hole and go left, then Jump the wall in this room and use
    bombs midway up the next wall to continue left.  Kill the enemies in here and
    use bombs to reach the power bombs.
    
    Use a power bomb to escape above, then use another one to open up a shaft above
    you.  Freeze the enemies to climb to the top, then get the power bombs in the
    room on your right.
    
    Use the nearby Save Room before heading right, then use a power bomb to get
    past the barrier.  Head up a little in the room beyond, then work your way left
    to another barrier that you'll use a power bomb to get past.  Wait on the ledge
    in the room beyond, then freeze the enemy when it's one square away from
    turning around and coming back towards you.  Jump on him in ball form but don't
    land on the squares in front of or behind him as you'll fall right through
    them.  Roll through the tunnel and wait at the next ledge, try to freeze this
    enemy closer to the left side of his patrol.  Then slowly roll right to see the
    first of four blocks that crumble away.  Jump from there to the enemy and then
    jump to the tunnel beyond, DO NOT roll off the end of the tunnel yet.  The
    first three blocks below you will crumble if you land on them so be sure to
    jump over them when you jump off the ledge, then get your power bombs.
    
    Head for the 3x4 room above and take the bottom left door there.  Kill the
    enemy above and use a bomb in the top right corner to reach some missiles up
    there.
    
    Use the Save and Recharge Rooms before the Data Room to get your next
    instruction.
    
    
    "Samus, return to your ship.  I have important information."
    
    
    ------------------------------
    Main Deck Revisited: Power Out
    ------------------------------
    
    Once you return to the Main Deck and take the main elevator up, it will stop
    halfway. Shoot right and work your way right through the tunnels, then use the
    ball jump to reach a hidden passage when you reach the wall.  You will end up
    in a room with...
    
    *********
    *SPOILER*
    *********
    
    frozen Ridley inside it.
    
    ******
    *HERE*
    ******
    
    Walk up to it and it will crumble away as an X parasite heads right.  Go right
    and fall through the floor to another hidden passage.  Use a power bomb to
    reveal a passage on your left, then follow it to the end and search above you
    for some power bombs.
    
    Head right and kill the enemies in your way as you travel to the next room.
    Use a power bomb in front of the blocks here to find some missiles.
    
    Follow the passage and shoot above you to leave the tunnels, then return to
    your ship and save before getting your next instructions.
    
    
    "The main silo of the Reactor Core has gone offline.  That's why all elevators
    and station systems are down.  Elevators and hatches won't work.  This doesn't
    bode well...  You may be able to start the auxiliary power system.  Then we can
    figure out why the main silo went offline...  By the way I asked you to return
    here to tell you...  Some strange creatures have boarded your ship.  I
    confirmed that they were not X hosts and gave them a berth.  Do you know
    anything about these strange creatures?  Were they the source of the healthy
    bio-signs earlier?  Very well, then.  Their presence in the midst of this
    disaster must have some significance...  I will keep them here."
    
    
    Go left to the wall and use a power bomb to continue left, then roll left and
    work your way down the shaft to the door at the bottom.  In the next room jump
    up and shoot the top of the orange vines so that you can use them as a platform
    to reach the other side of the room.  Drop down to the door right below you,
    then use missiles on the enemies in the next room and get the energy tank
    halfway.
    
    In the room beyond you'll want to kill the enemies and shoot the ground near
    the walls to work your way to the bottom.  Get the missiles halfway down by
    bombing from their right.
    
    At the bottom you'll want to climb up the left wall and destroy the barrier
    above to reach the boss.
    
    
    SPACE JUMP BOSS
    
    This boss has an attack where he shoots three fireballs at you that slowly
    burn out, otherwise he moves left and right and tries to grab you when he gets
    close.  Just jump over him to prevent this, then when he tries to do the
    fireball attack a large red area drops out of his mouth.  Attack that area with
    about 4 missiles and repeat until his legs fall off.  Now the boss will jump
    around and drop particles on you, you need to try and hit him from below with
    missiles when he's not spinning.  Repeat this until he takes on the familiar
    bubble form.  Finally defeat the bubble form like usual and grab the Space
    Jump.
    
    
    Now you can use your space jump to jump up the shaft and go left to restore the
    power.  After restoring power continue left to the Navigation Room and get more
    instructions.
    
    
    "Save Rooms and Recharge Rooms are now back online, but with only auxiliary
    power, no elevators or hatches will work.  Without the main silo online, we're
    still stuck.  I believe the source of the problem is the vegetation you saw
    earlier choking the Reactor Core components.  We'll have to find the source of
    those roots to proceed."
    
    
    Head left past the gate and use the Save Room at the bottom of the large room.
    Now use the space jump to reach a tunnel just below the top left corner of the
    large room.  Follow it to a plant infested area of sector 2, then get ready for
    a tough part.
    
    
    --------------------------
    Sector 2 Revisited: Plants
    --------------------------
    
    The SA-X is below you, so you'll need to run away from it and keep freezing it
    to keep it from chasing you and shooting you.  Basically fire one ice missile
    at a time at it, and when it starts to thaw fire another.  Do this while
    running left past all the barriers and bombing the first wall you come to, then
    hide behind a wall on the far left and the SA-X will leave you alone.  Return
    to the previous room and fire a missile at the square just left of the moving
    vine in the floor.  Drop in the gap and use bombs to reach the passage below,
    then take it left to the next room.  Jump up the shaft and shoot the vines on
    the left side, then continue to shoot the ground below to reach the door.  Head
    left to the large room and go to the left end of the room, then jump up and
    shoot the wall on your right to find some power bombs.
    
    Jump to the top of the room and enter the door there, then use the Save Room.
    Head right through the next two doors, then shoot above you to open a passage.
    Jump up the passage and destroy the barrier as you get ready for the boss
    beyond.
    
    
    PLASMA BEAM BOSS
    
    This boss is annoying, there are flowers along the ground that will try to chew
    on you if you fall into them so try your best to keep away from them by
    standing on either of the platforms.  This won't be easy though as some flowers
    in the ceiling are raining particles at you constantly that knock you off the
    platforms.  Luckily the space jump helps you avoid both hazards.  As for
    damaging the boss, just fire missiles straight at him until the boss's head
    falls off.  Now you must avoid the high and low shots that it fires at you as
    you continue to fire missiles at it.  Eventually the boss will take on the
    bubble form so you can attack it like usual.  Just know that every time the
    bubble is hit it will fire a shot at you, then once dead you can grab the
    Plasma Beam.
    
    
    Go right to the next room and return left to the Save Room.  Return to the
    shaft and climb to the top, then take the door on the right.  Head right to the
    wall and jump towards it and grab the ledge of a hidden tunnel.  Roll through
    it and jump up the passage in the room beyond, then shoot left to find an
    energy tank.
    
    Return to the VERY bottom of the shaft and use the Save Room below, then work
    your way left to the other large shaft.  Climb up and take the first door on
    your left, use the space jump and brute force to reach the power bombs.  Then
    fall down the hidden passage below them and use bombs to get more power bombs.
    
    Work your way to the pink 2x4 room, then take the blue door above to the next
    room.  Use bombs midway up the wall to reach some missiles beyond.
    
    Now use the Save and Recharge Rooms before using the Navigation Room for more
    instructions.
    
    
    "What?  You've restored Plasma Beam functionality?  ...Most unexpected.  Even
    so, continue to avoid the SA-X.  It, too, may be stronger.  And you still lack
    a few abilities crucial to survival...  Wait...  Wait a second...
    More trouble.  Hold on.  ...I've isolated the cause.  There's been an explosion
    in the ARC Data Room...  Samus, go to Sector 5.  The damage is staggering.
    Find out what's causing it."
    
    
    Head straight to the Sector 5 now.
    
    
    ---------------------------
    Sector 5 Revisited: Damage?
    ---------------------------
    
    Once inside head for the Navigation Room for an update.
    
    
    "It's gotten worse.  The damage seems to have been caused by a creature kept
    here by the researchers, who named it... the Nightmare.  Apparently, it was a
    bio-mechanical organism designed for military applications...  It possesses
    uncommon power and can manipulate gravity.  We must assume that it's become an
    X-host.  We have no choice.  You must find it and defeat it.  I can't confirm
    the location.  This thing is out of control.  Hurry before it destroys the
    entire station..."
    
    
    Use the nearby Save Room, then head for the nearby 3x4 room.  Freeze the
    enemies to make it to the top and shoot the left door, then kill all enemies on
    your right.  Now speed boost left toward the open door and use a shoulder
    charge to fly through the blocks in the next room, then grab the power bombs.
    
    Head for the red door at the top of the 2x5 room, then walk right through the
    destroyed door and shoot up to reveal a passage.  Follow it up and use a power
    bomb to reveal yet another passage, then follow that one to the top and open
    both gates from below.  Finally bomb the left side of the wall to open a gap
    below and use more bombs to get some power bombs.
    
    Drop down the shaft and use the first door on your right, then go right until
    you reach the door to Sector 3.  Use a bomb on the ceiling by the door, then
    jump up there and shoot the block on your right and get some power bombs.
    
    Return to Sector 5 and go right from the red door until you reach a wall at the
    top of a shaft, then bomb the floor and fall down to the door at the bottom.
    In the next room you'll want to ignore the door on your right and work your way
    up to a door that leads left, then climb the shaft in the room beyond and go
    right.  Shoot the ceiling midway through the room and take the top left door,
    then kill the enemies and use a power bomb to get some more power bombs.
    
    Return to the previous room and go to the very top [third door on the right],
    then use a power bomb to reveal a passage on your left.  Follow it to the door
    and jump about 4 squares before the tunnel ends to land in a passage above you,
    then roll left and use a bomb to get some power bombs.
    
    Take the passage below left to the Recharge Room, then go right until you reach
    the Save Room.  Return to the previous room and take the right door just below
    you, then head right in the new room and up to a door.  Go towards the energy
    tank here, but stop before you enter the tunnel.  Jump straight up and bomb the
    wall to reveal a tunnel, then take that tunnel over to the energy tank.
    
    Now get ready for your boss battle against the Nightmare, then roll left to
    fall into the battle.
    
    
    GRAVITY SUIT BOSS (NIGHTMARE)
    
    For the first part of the battle you'll want to hang off the ladder to lure the
    boss up to your level then drop down and fire some missiles diagonally so they
    hit the circular part of the boss.  Repeat this while dodging the lasers [not
    hard] until the boss starts increasing the gravity.  Now you need to run
    underneath it and fire missiles at the circular area [jump if needed] until it
    stops controlling the gravity.  For this next phase you need to avoid the boss
    as it tries to crash into you, then it will start moving slowly toward you.
    Jump to the ladder at this point and fire missiles rapidly at the boss's face
    if they bounce off you're too high/low so adjust your height.  Repeat until the
    boss takes on the bubble form, then easily finish it off like normal and grab
    the Gravity Suit.
    
    
    Go near the door to get it to open, then run from the right wall all the way
    left and through the blocks in the next room.  Use the nearby Recharge and Save
    Rooms, then go to the bottom of this right green side of the map.  Shoot the
    door on the right and kill the enemies on your left, then run all the way right
    and through the blocks in the next room.  Duck after the blocks to store your
    charge, then do a super jump between the blocks and grab the power bombs.
    
    Return to the green shaft left of you, and grab the ledge on the right wall.
    Jump to the left wall and shoot a missile at the square directly across from
    the gap on the other wall.  Enter the tunnel and slowly roll across the
    platforms to reveal the weak spots, then jump them to reach the energy tank.
    
    Return to the shaft and run all the way right through sector 4, then jump at
    the top of the hill to pass through the blocks.  In the next room go right to
    the Save Room, then return to the previous room and drop to the door below you.
    Instead of opening it go left to the wall and jump up to a hidden passage left,
    then grab the power bombs beyond it.
    
    Return to the shaft and take the door on your right, kill the enemies inside
    and get the missiles at the right end of the room.
    
    Return to the shaft and drop to the very bottom, then take the right door and
    use a power bomb in the glass tubes.  Fall down and kill the enemies, then
    grab the missiles.
    
    
    Return to the shaft and take the left door, then bomb the ceiling of the left
    glass tube.  Fire missiles above you and work your way to a ledge on the upper
    right and use bombs to reach power bombs beyond it.
    
    Head all the way left from here to the far left wall and use bombs on the
    blocks on your right to go down.  Bomb the third grey block from the left and
    fall through the gap, then bomb the block below you and fall some more.  Kill
    the fish on your right and roll through a hidden passage through the rock
    towards the fish.  Bomb the block below and fall towards the fish on your left,
    then bomb the left block and kill the fish.  Roll left and bomb the block below
    you to fall into the security room, then open the level 4 locks.
    
    Work your way up the right wall of the shaft on your right to a ledge, then
    roll through a hidden tunnel there to a short shaft.  Work your way towards the
    bottom and use a power bomb to kill the enemies, avoid the X that they release
    until some of it causes two gold enemies to appear on your right.  Use missiles
    to enter that area and then use them to kill the enemies.  This will open the
    door below and in the room beyond you'll find an energy tank in the top right
    block.
    
    Return to the Save Room, then drop to the bottom of the shaft beside it and
    head right until you reach another shaft.  Climb that shaft and take the door
    at the top, then go right to the 2x3 room.  Bomb the blocks on your right to
    reach the Save Room beyond, then return to the previous room and climb to the
    top.  Freeze the mine enemy before he raises the mine to reach the top right
    door, then just go right past the next room.  Kill the enemies here and use
    your speed boost to run left to the 2x3 room and break some blocks, then fall
    through the gap and take the right door.  Head right until you reach the shaft,
    then work your way up it using the space jump, the ladders and frozen enemies.
    You'll need to freeze the highest enemy and use missiles on the blocks above in
    order to keep climbing and enter the left door.  Bomb the walls in here and go
    left to the next room, then drop down and take the right door to get your
    Diffusion Missile upgrade.
    
    Return to the previous room and use a diffusion missile to freeze the mine
    enemies, then go through the tunnel and take the bottom left door.  Destroy the
    barrier beyond and bomb the wall below the wires for some missiles.
    
    Head for the pink 3x3 room and use a bomb on your left to open a tunnel, follow
    it left and use another bomb to drop into an area below.  Finally use a power
    bomb and roll left for some power bombs.
    
    Use the Save and Recharge Rooms before using the Navigation Room for your next
    update.
    
    
    "You upgraded your missiles?  That's unusual...  There was no word from HQ.  A
    procedural error, I'm sure...  Even so, I did not approve of bypassing security
    level 4.  From now on you will use more discretion.  In any case, Samus, do you
    remember the Security Robot you faced earlier?  I believe the X have infected
    it.  That is to say, they have claimed the organic components that form its
    neural network.  It has entered Sector 6 (NOC).  I don't know what it's
    planning, but let's not wait to find out."
    
    
    Now you'll want to head for Sector 6.
    
    
    ----------------------------------
    Sector 6 Revisited: Security Robot
    ----------------------------------
    
    Enter the Navigation Room on your right for your next instructions.
    
    
    "The Security Robot seems to have gotten much stronger.  This worries me.  Be
    careful.  But we have another problem.  Once you're done, leave NOC
    immediately.  The SA-X is tracking you."
    
    
    Use the Recharge and Save Rooms, then head right to the pink 1x4 shaft and take
    the door below you left.  Kill the enemies and use a power bomb at the left
    wall to continue left.  Drop down the shaft and go to the next room, then walk
    right and fall to the room below.  Take the left door and drop down the shaft
    beyond, then go left to the next room.  Shoot the ground to get to the very
    bottom of this shaft, then go left to a door that you can't open yet.  Return
    to the previous room and take the right door halfway up for a Save Room.
    Return right to the room that you fell into and get ready for a boss battle.
    
    
    WAVE BEAM BOSS
    
    Use a power bomb as soon as you enter the room to reveal a ladder above you,
    also notice that the water below you is electrified.  The boss is the Security
    Robot that you fought earlier and his weakness is the same, that is firing down
    at the middle of the boss when it's not attacking.  However this time the boss
    fires homing missiles at you, so you should fire normal shots at these from the
    side to get rid of them.  The boss also jumps at you, but this time he can jump
    high enough to knock you off the ladder above so try to keep your distance.
    Attack him until he takes on the bubble form, then beat him like any other
    boss.  Just beware of the shots that it fires when you hit it and grab the Wave
    Beam once its dead.
    
    
    Go right a room and use your wave beam to open the gate, then grab the missiles
    beyond.
    
    Return to the Save Room below you, then head for the gate that you couldn't
    open before farther down.  Open it with your Wave Beam and continue left to the
    main deck.
    
    
    ------------------------------------
    Main Deck Revisited: Restricted Zone
    ------------------------------------
    
    Roll left and drop down, then go left to the Save Room.  Head left until you
    reach the shaft, then enter the door above and notice the room shaking.  Return
    to the room below to find...
    
    *********
    *SPOILER*
    *********
    
    The SA-X setting all the Metroids free.
    
    ******
    *HERE*
    ******
    
    The ceiling should collapse, which allows you to jump up the shaft to the door
    at the top within 60 seconds.  After the short scene you'll want to go right to
    the Navigation Room for an update.
    
    *********
    *SPOILER*
    *********
    
    "Samus, you shouldn't have done that.  You ignored your orders.  You may have
    to pay a price for that quite soon...
    
    Samus: ...
    
    As you can see the Federation has been secretly working on a Metroid breeding
    program.  For peaceful applications only, of course.  Please understand.  But
    perhaps you already knew of this program's existence?  Certainly, you must have
    had doubts when you saw Sector 1.  SRX, a faithful replica of the SR388
    ecosystem...  Ideal for raising Alpha, Gamma, Zeta, and even Omega Metroids.
    This research even uncovered techniques for rapid growth.  Imagine...creating
    an Omega from a larval Metroid in days...  But that research is finished.  The
    X has smelled out its natural enemy, and one of the SA-X is on its way here...
    
    Samus: ONE?  ...Are you saying there is more than one SA-X?
    
    Don't be so surprised, Samus.  You know that the X reproduce by asexual
    division.  Because of this mechanism, there are now no fewer than 10 SA-X
    aboard the station.
    
    Samus: ...
    
    Samus, you must go.  Get out.  If you stay too long, the SA-X will destroy you.
    Stop only at a Navigation Room to uplink to me.  I don't know how HQ is going
    to take this, but you need to report to them immediately..."
    
    ******
    *HERE*
    ******
    
    Now head right and take the elevator up to sector 1 where Samus will reflect.
    
    
    "The real Adam would have said the same thing about that incident, but he would
    have softened the blow.  He was relentless in his criticism, but he always
    cared...  He was not a machine obsessed with duty.  No such compassion could
    exist in that computer..."
    
    
    Go through the door and climb to the top of the next room, wait on the pillar
    and fire a diffusion missile to reveal an energy tank.
    
    Work your way through the rest of the room and continue right until you reach a
    Save Room.  Return to the previous room and bomb the floor to fall into the
    room below, then use power bombs to kill the enemy on your left.  Avoid the X
    by moving left, it should then cause an enemy to spawn on the ceiling.  Kill
    that enemy and avoid the X once again, a golden enemy should appear now.  This
    enemy can only be harmed by shooting it in the back with missiles, this is
    easiest to do when it jumps into the air.  Once the enemy is dead the door on
    your right will open, enter it for some power bombs.
    
    Return to the Save Room before climbing to the top of the shaft, then use a
    bomb on the right wall to continue your climb.  Kill the enemy and enter the
    door, then use power bombs to kill the enemies below you.  Beat the two golden
    enemies that appear next to open the door, then enter the door and head up for
    a Save Room.  Drop to the bottom of the shaft and take the left door, then
    freeze/avoid the enemies as you continue left.  Destroy the barrier and open
    the door, then enter the room for the next boss battle.
    
    
    SCREW ATTACK BOSS
    
    Walk toward the boss to get it to start moving, then the battle will begin.
    This boss is actually really easy, it's just a matter of constantly firing
    missiles at it while trying to avoid some of its attacks.  If you keep this up
    the boss will easily die long before you do.  Attack the bubble form like usual
    and grab your Screw Attack.
    
    
    Use the Save Room at the bottom of the right shaft, then climb the ladder above
    you and fire a diffusion missile right at the door to create a tunnel.  Use the
    tunnel to reach the door, then open the gate in the next room and continue
    right.  Use the screw attack to break through the floor, then follow the
    passage until you end up in the pink area of Sector 1 once again.  Go right to
    the shaft and climb to the top, then go left to the short 1x2 shaft.  Bomb the
    right wall at the bottom of the shaft and the blocks above the gap on your
    left, then go left to the Save Room.  Use your speed booster to run all the way
    right to the new room that you opened with the bombs.  Before you fall down the
    gap there press down to store your charge, then fall down and shoot the enemy
    below you so you don't lose the charge.  Finally run right to the wall and do a
    super jump, then use the space jump to get up to the top and shoot left to find
    some power bombs.
    
    Return to the Save Room and use it, then get ready for a very tricky maneuver.
    You'll need to use your speed booster as you run right to the 1x2 shaft, then
    you'll need to duck there to store your charge and quickly use the space jump
    to jump up to the left door.  However you need to do this without releasing
    your charge which basically involves only pressing left to move on the ground
    but as soon as you're in the air don't press any directions or you'll use the
    charge.  If you've done this part successfully then you'll need to quickly open
    the door at the top and do a shoulder charge left to the next room.  Be sure to
    hold left while doing this because when you hit the ramp you'll continue
    running left, then duck before you drop to the small indent and store the
    charge.  Finally go left to the wall and do a super jump straight up to an
    Energy Tank.
    
    Take the top right door in the 2x2 room and jump to the ladder above, then fire
    a missile left.  Enter the tunnel and use bombs to continue left to some
    missiles.
    
    Go to the Save Room right of you, then enter the hole in the right wall to
    reach a hidden shaft.  Use the space jump to reach the top and grab some
    missiles there.
    
    Head for the pink 3x2 room and use the space jump to get some missiles on the
    left end of the room, then drop into the lava and roll right to get some more
    missiles.
    
    Take the green door to the right of the Recharge and Save Rooms, then use the
    screw attack to reach some power bombs above.
    
    Use the Recharge and Save Rooms before using the Navigation Room for an update.

    "Samus, we're done here.  Leave the rest to the Federation...  We should be
    preparing to evacuate the station...
    
    Samus: Are you joking?!  Do they know how dangerous the X are?  ...How quickly
    they reproduce?
    
    The Federation has taken an interest in the X and SA-X.  They believe this
    lifeform has endless potential applications.
    
    Samus: This is ridiculous!  The X are heartless abominations!  What potential
    could they have?
    
    It is not necessary that you understand such matters.  The Federation is coming
    now.  You should just leave quietly...
    
    Samus: This is madness!  They won't stand a chance here!  This station will
    devour them!  What could be worth the risk!?
    
    Capturing the SA-X, of course.
    
    Samus: ...Are you serious?  Do they really think they can succeed?
    
    It will certainly be difficult.  They don't expect your help.  They knew you
    would try to destroy the SA-X...  That's why they stopped sending you support
    data...  The Plasma Beam modification was ready some time ago, but they
    withheld it to keep you from engaging the SA-X.  Yet somehow you restored that
    function on your own...  They also tried to withhold the Diffusion Missile
    upgrade because they didn't want you to grow too powerful.  But they had
    already sent it, and you tracked it down...  Bravo, Samus.
    
    Samus: They must cancel this mission!  Open a channel to HQ!  I won't let this
    happen!
    
    They are already on their way.
    
    Samus: Fools...
    As soon as the Federation ships land, the X will overwhelm them and absorb the
    knowledge and power of their occupants.  The X are just waiting for the hunt
    to begin, and then they'll spread across the universe.  Galactic civilization
    will end.  The X hunger for form, knowledge, and power.  They mimic these
    perfectly.  But they cannot copy the soul.  They're single-minded,
    instinctively seeking to increase in number.  They're a plague, and the
    Federation underestimates their threat.  The X must not leave here.  I must
    destroy them all before the Federation arrives.  This station has a
    self-destruct mechanism.  I must use it to destroy the X here and on the
    planet.  I must send them to oblivion.  Them, the station, and myself, if I
    have to.
    
    Samus: Open the hatch!
    
    I have been ordered to confine you until the ships arrive.
    
    Samus: Don't let them do this.  Can't you see what will happen, Adam?
    
    ...Adam?
    
    Samus: ...
    
    ...Who is Adam?
    
    Samus: ...A friend of mine.
    
    And what would this ...friend advise you to do now?
    
    Samus: He would know that the only way to end this is to start the
    self-destruct cycle.  He'd know how important it is...
    
    Did this "Adam" care for you?  Would he sit in a safe Command Room and order
    you to die?
    
    Samus: He would understand that some must live and some must die...  He knew
    what it meant.  He made that sacrifice once.
    
    So he chose life for you?  Our fair warrior, Samus Aran...  Your Adam gave his
    life so that you might keep yours...  For the sake of the universe...
    
    Samus: ...
    
    How foolish.
    
    Samus: How dare you!  How could you hope to understand, machine?
    
    You know that detonating this station in high orbit would not guarantee the
    complete extinction of the X parasites, even though the station would be
    utterly destroyed...  You would only succeed in removing the one obstacle to
    the galaxy's ruin...yourself.  You would ignore this simple fact and choose
    death.  When Adam decided who would live, he chose incorrectly.
    
    Samus: ...!
    
    ...If you were to alter the station's orbit, then you might be able to include
    the planet in the vaporization field of the self-destruct detonation.
    
    Samus: ...?
    
    You would have to start the propulsion sequence now.  Before the Federation
    arrives.  Samus, this is your last mission.  Go to the Operations Room and
    adjust the station's orbit path to intercept SR388.  Then return to your ship
    and escape.  Move quickly, and stay alive.  That's an order!  Any objections,
    Lady?"

    Now you'll want to use the Save Room before returning to the Main Deck.
    
    
    ---------------------------
    Main Deck Revisited: Finale
    ---------------------------
    
    Head for the a Save Room before going to the 2x3 room near the target area on
    your map to start a boss fight.
    
    
    SA-X BOSS
    
    You can only hurt the boss with charged beam shots so don't bother with
    anything else.  You can also only hit it with these shots when it's on the
    ground.  So you'll want to fire a shot then jump away from the boss while
    charging, land to fire another shot and repeat as necessary.  The boss will
    eventually pause on the ground before growing into a second form.  This form is
    actually quite weak as it only takes around five hits to beat it.  The boss
    just jumps around and tries to land on you, you need to fire charged shots at
    its head to deal damage.  Once beaten the boss will take on the bubble form, so
    beat it with missiles whenever it shows its eye and watch out for the shots
    that it fires when hit.
    
    
    After the battle take the top left door to the target room, once inside
    activate the new orbit and the three minute countdown.  Now use your map if you
    need it as you return to your ship, once there a boss battle will begin.
    
    Let the boss attack you when the battle begins, this will then cause...
    
    *********
    *SPOILER*

    The SA-X to appear and try to save you, it will get killed in the process
    though and let you absorb it to return to full power.
    
    ******
    *HERE*
    ******
    
    Now above all else you need to avoid the boss's claws as they do lots of
    damage, plus leave you motionless briefly.  Basically the best tactic is a hit
    and run, where you run towards the boss, fire one charged shot diagonally at
    its chest and retreat before the claws hit you.  This not only helps you do
    maximum damage while keeping yourself safe, it also stops the boss from
    walking towards you.  Repeat this until the boss changes purple, then later
    red.  After this point the boss is close to death, so keep attacking.  Once
    dead your ship will appear, so quickly enter it before the timer runs out and
    enjoy the ending.

    "That perfect military mind...  The wisdom of Adam Malkovich continued to serve
    even after death.  Until today, I had no idea that the minds of leaders and
    scientists were frequently uploaded to computers.  My incredible reunion with
    Adam may have saved the universe...  But how will the beings of the universe
    view our resolve?  I doubt they will understand what we did...the danger we
    barely averted.  They will hold tribunals and investigations.  They will hold
    us responsible.  Adam understood this, and he spoke to me in my anger...
    "Do not worry.  One of them will understand.  One of them must."  I've
    reflected upon his words, and I see the wisdom in them.  We are all bound by
    our experiences.  They are the limits of our consciousness.  But in the end,
    the human soul will ever reach for the truth...  This is what Adam taught me.
    Just one detail still bothers me.  This ship can only be started manually.
    Yet, before I faced the Omega Metroid, the ship moved on it's own, guided by
    someone's hands.  Is it possible?  Adam...?

    ITEM CHECKLIST
    ==============
    
    Here are checklists for all the Energy Tanks, Missiles, and Power Bombs that
    you can pick up in the game and any requirements you need to meet before
    getting them.
    
    You can get any missed items after getting the screw attack, but before
    visiting a Navigation Room.  If you visit one, then the doors that lead into
    sectors will be locked.  You can also get missed items after beating the
    game once as all doors get unlocked at that point.
    
    
    -----------
    GAME TOTALS
    -----------
    
    - 100 Items
    
    - 20 Energy Tanks
    - 48 Missiles
    - 32 Power Bombs
    
    
    --------------------
    Main Deck [13 ITEMS]
    --------------------
    
    ENERGY TANKS [3]
    #01 At the top right corner of the large pink room at the right side of the map
        where you fight the morph ball boss.
    #02 Once you have the screw attack work your way to the bottom of the morph
        ball boss room.  In the room just before you will find a large pile of
        blocks, use your screw attack in the ceiling on your right and continue to
        the top right corner of the room.  Stop before the hole that would lead
        down to the boss, then fire a pair of missiles straight up to open a
        passage.  Follow the passage up and right to the energy tank.
    #03 In the green 4x1 room near the space jump boss, the energy tank is in plain
        view.
    
    
    MISSILES [7]
    #01 On your way to the morph ball boss you'll fall down a green 1x5 shaft, the
        missiles are at the bottom in plain view.
    #02 From #01 above go left to what looks like a dead end and fire a few shots
        at the top bump of the left wall to uncover the missiles.
    #03 Above the first Navigation Room, you need the Morph Ball.
    #04 At the top of the elevator [once you can use it again] that leads to the
        other 6 minor elevators go left and use the Speed Booster.
    #05 Once you rescue the survivors in the top left part of the map you can
        easily fall to the bottom of that room for these missiles.
    #06 Once the main elevator breaks down you'll find the missiles in the green
        1x2 room on your way out in plain view.
    #07 In the green 2x5 room before the space jump boss at the bottom right
        corner of the map.  The missiles can be found halfway down the room, just
        bomb from their right to reach them.
    
    
    POWER BOMBS [3]
    #01 When you return to this area and the elevator breaks down, once you go
        right and fall into a tunnel below use a power bomb.  This will open up a
        tunnel on your left, follow it to reach the power bombs.  The power bomb
        room is located directly above the sector 2 elevator.
    #02 Once you have power bombs and access to the main deck go to the green doors
        at the top of the pink 1x4 shaft.  Use a power bomb on the barrier and take
        the right door, then jump to the ledge and jump to a hidden tunnel above.
        Follow it right and down to the power bombs.
    #03 You'll actually reach this power bomb from Sector 6, but make sure you've
        already been to the restricted zone on the main deck before.  Once back in
        the restricted zone use your speed booster as you run left along the bottom
        section, then store your charge before you hit the far left wall.  Finally
        do a super jump from behind the left pillar in the foreground to get the
        power bombs above.
    
    
    -------------------
    Sector 1 [12 ITEMS]
    -------------------
    
    ENERGY TANKS [3]
    #01 Between the second and third 2x2 rooms at the top of the map in plain view,
        just roll into the pipe below to reach it.
    #02 Once you have the wave beam and enter this sector go through the door right
        of the elevator.  Climb to the top of the room beyond and wait on the
        pillar, then fire a diffusion missile to reveal the energy tank.
    #03 Once you have the space jump go to the lowest Save Room in the pink area
        and use it, then get ready for a very tricky maneuver.  You'll need to use
        your speed booster as you run right to the 1x2 shaft, then you'll need to
        duck there to store your charge and quickly use the space jump to jump up
        to the left door.  However you need to do this without releasing your
        charge which basically involves only pressing left to move on the ground
        but as soon as you're in the air don't press any directions or you'll use
        the charge.  If you've done this part successfully then you'll need to
        quickly open the door at the top and do a shoulder charge left to the next
        room.  Be sure to hold left while doing this because when you hit the ramp
        you'll continue running left, then duck before you drop to the small indent
        and store the charge.  Finally go left to the wall and do a super jump
        straight up to the energy tank.
    
    
    MISSILES [6]
    #01 Enter the 3x2 room and use the ladder above to cross the lava and get the
        missiles beyond.
    #02 In plain view, go to the pink 2x2 room in the bottom right corner of the
        map.  Enter the top left door and grab the missiles there.
    #03 From the 2x2 room left of the rightmost save room go left to the next room.
        Jump to the ladder above and fire a missile left, then enter the tunnel
        and use bombs to continue left to the missiles.
    #04 Go to the rightmost save room, then enter the hole in the right wall to
        reach a hidden shaft.  Use the space jump to reach the top and grab the
        missiles there.
    #05 Enter the 3x2 room and use the space jump to reach missiles at the left
        end of the room.
    #06 Enter the 3x2 room and use the gravity suit [or lots of energy] as you
        drop into the lava and roll right for the missiles.
    
    POWER BOMBS [3]
    #01 Once you have the wave beam and enter this sector go to the room left of
        the nearest Save Room.  Bomb the floor to fall into the room below, then
        use power bombs to kill the enemy on your left.  Avoid the X by moving
        left, it should then cause an enemy to spawn on the ceiling.  Kill that
        enemy and avoid the X once again, a golden enemy should appear now.  This
        enemy can only be harmed by shooting it in the back with missiles, this is
        easiest to do when it jumps into the air.  Once the enemy is dead the door
        on your right will open, enter it for some power bombs.
    #02 Once you have the screw attack go to the Save Room at the bottom of the
        pink area, then go right to the shaft and bomb the right wall at the
        bottom and the blocks above the tunnel.  Return to the Save Room and use
        your speed booster to run all the way right to the new room that you
        opened with the bombs.  Before you fall down the gap there press down to
        store your charge, then fall down and shoot the enemy below you so you
        don't lose the charge.  Finally run right to the wall and do a super jump,
        then use the space jump to get up to the top and shoot left to find the
        power bombs.
    #03 Take the green door to the right of the Recharge and Save Rooms, then use
        the screw attack to reach the power bombs above.
    
    
    -------------------
    Sector 2 [17 ITEMS]
    -------------------
    
    ENERGY TANKS [3]
    #01 Near the first boss room in the bottom right corner of the map in plain
        view.
    #02 Go to the top of the green 1x7 shaft in the middle of the map and take the
        right door, then jump towards the right wall in the next room to find a
        hidden tunnel.  Follow it to the next room and jump straight up at the
        right wall, then shoot left to find the energy tank.
    #03 Go to the top of the 1x2 security room at the top of the map, then use
        your screw attack to enter a room on your left.  Make sure you don't land
        on any blocks in this room because you'll fall right through them,
        otherwise use the space jump to reach the energy tank in the top left
        corner.
    
    
    MISSILES [9]
    #01 Use bombs on the far right wall beyond the middle blue door on your map to
        find the missiles.
    #02 Once you have the hi-jump take the middle door in the pink 2x4 room left
        for the missiles.
    #03 Once you have the bombs roll through the tunnel in the bottom right corner
        of the pink 2x4 room.  Grab the ledge on the right and use bombs in the
        tunnel to reach the missiles.
    #04 Go to the pink 2x2 room beside the data room, then enter the gap in the top
        right corner to find the missiles.
    #05 Go to the green 1x6 shaft at the left side of the map, then shoot the left
        wall from the platform up there to reveal a gap.  Enter the gap and bomb
        the floor to reveal a tower, then use the tower to get the missiles.
    #06 Go to the green 2x3 room in the bottom left corner of the map, then bomb
        your way into the small area in the bottom left corner.  Roll right to the
        wall and use a bomb, then follow the tunnel you uncovered to reach the
        missiles.
    #07 Go to the green 2x2 room at the bottom left corner of the map, then use the
        ladder above to cross the water and reach the missiles on the other side.
    #08 Go to the green 2x2 room at the bottom left corner of the map, then bomb
        the floor near the left wall in the bottom left corner of the room.  An
        elevator should appear, you can then use it to reach the door on your left.
        Use a power bomb in the next room to destroy a block, then bomb the floor
        for an elevator that you can use to reach the missiles.
    #09 Return to the hi-jump/jump ball boss room at the bottom right corner of the
        map once you have the screw attack and use it in the top right corner to
        reveal a door.  Go to the bottom left corner of the room beyond and use a
        power bomb to reveal the missiles and speed blocks above.  Now use your
        speed boost as you run left from the bottom right corner.  Store the charge
        before you reach the left wall, then jump up and do a shoulder charge right
        through the speed blocks and collect the missiles.
    
    
    POWER BOMBS [5]
    #01 Once you have the space jump you can jump up the green 2x4 room in the
        middle of the map and shoot the wall on your right midway up to find the
        power bombs.
    #02 You need the space jump to reach the door midway up the left side of a
        green shaft below the pink 2x4 room.  Use your space jump inside to reach
        the power bombs, you'll take some damage but you should get them.
    #03 In the same room as #02, just fall through the passage directly below those
        power bombs and use a bomb to reveal these ones.
    #04 Go to the top of the 1x2 security room at the top of the map, then use
        your screw attack to enter a room on your left.  Make sure you don't land
        on any blocks in this room because you'll fall right through them,
        otherwise use the space jump to reach the power bombs at the left side of
        the room.
    #05 Return to the hi-jump/jump ball boss room at the bottom right corner of
        the map once you have the screw attack and use it in the top right corner
        to reveal a door.  Go to the bottom left corner of the room beyond and
        get ready for some tricky moves.  Use your speed boost as you run right,
        then store the charge before you hit the wall.  Now do a screw attack to
        the platform above so you don't lose the charge, then quickly do a
        shoulder charge into the ramp beside you.  Continue to hold left as you
        do this because Samus will continue running at full speed when she hits
        the ramp.  Once you run across the crumbling bridge store your charge
        before you hit the next wall.  Repeat this process for 3 more bridges,
        then as you cross left over one more at the top of the room you'll need
        to store your charge before you hit a small ridge.  Quickly jump over
        the ridge and do a final shoulder charge at the ramp on your left, you
        should then run right through some speed blocks and into the power bombs.
    
    
    -------------------
    Sector 3 [16 ITEMS]
    -------------------
    
    ENERGY TANKS [3]
    #01 After the robot boss follow the path that it opened up for you.  Kill the
        enemies as you go left to the next room, then drop down and kill the enemy
        as you use a bomb to continue left.  When you see the narrow tunnel above
        you set a bomb below it to make a tower appear.  You can then set bombs
        above you to find the energy tank.
    #02 Once you have the varia suit go to the pink 2x4 room and enter the middle
        door on your left, then go left to the missile room.  Destroy the wall
        and the blocks beyond, then use your speed booster as you run left.  Do a
        super jump at the far left wall, and work your way up to the energy tank
        above by shooting the walls and bombing the floor to find a tower.
    #03 Once you have the ice missiles go to missile #02 above and destroy the
        right wall.  Freeze the enemy to reach the door above and freeze the
        enemies in the room beyond to reach the energy tank in the top right
        corner.
    
    
    MISSILES [7]
    #01 Once you beat the robot boss go right of the recharge room below him and
        get the missiles in plain view.
    #02 Once you have the varia suit go to the pink 2x4 room and enter the middle
        door on your left, then go across the ladder to reach the missiles in the
        room beyond.
    #03 Go to the top of the pink 1x7 shaft and take the left door, then bomb the
        left wall to reach the missiles.
    #04 Go to the bottom of the pink 1x7 shaft and take the right door, then bomb
        the middle of the floating block for the missiles.
    #05 Once you have the ice missiles go to missile #02 above and destroy the
        right wall.  Freeze the enemy to reach the door above and freeze the
        enemies in the room beyond to reach the top right corner, then take the
        tunnel above to reach the missiles.
    #06 Go to the bottom right of the pink 2x4 room, then go right a room.  Use
        your speed booster as you shoot blocks and run left to the green room.
        Then shoot the ground to find a hidden room below you, shoot the ceiling in
        the upper right corner to find the missiles.
    #07 Once you have the screw attack take the top right door of the pink 2x4
        room, then work your way right to the long green corridor.  Shoot up until
        there's a gap in the ceiling and use your screw attack on the right wall up
        there to enter sector 1.  From here you need to use your speed booster as
        you run all the way left to sector 3 again, then store your charge before
        you hit the screw attack blocks.  Do a screw attack to break the blocks and
        quickly do a shoulder charge left to get the missiles.
    
    
    POWER BOMBS [6]
    #01 Once you have power bombs, go to the pink 1x7 shaft and enter the small
        room midway up the left side of it.  Use a power bomb there and enter the
        tunnel that appears to reach the power bombs in the room beyond.
    #02 Once you have the gravity suit, go to the lowest pink 1x2 room on the map
        and use a power bomb at the bottom.  Enter the gap that you opened on your
        left and work your way right and up to the top right corner of the lava
        maze before going clockwise around the edge of the room to the power bombs.
    #03 Once you have the screw attack, go to the bottom of the pink 1x7 shaft and
        work your way right to the green 3x3 room.  Then use your screw attack in
        the bottom right corner to find a door.  Use your speed boost as you run
        through the door, then store the charge in the next room and do a super
        jump against the right wall to reach the power bombs in mid jump.
    #04 From #03 above continue your super jump to the top of the shaft, then hold
        left as you fall.  Finally use your screw attack as you head left up and
        over the wall to reach the nearby power bombs.
    #05 Once you have power bombs go to the green 1x5 room at the top of the map,
        then use your speed booster as you go left to the next room.  Store your
        charge and do a shoulder charge through the blocks on your left, then use a
        power bomb and follow the tunnel above you left to the power bombs.
    #06 You'll actually reach this power bomb from Sector 5, but make sure you have
        the space jump first.  In Sector 5 head for the red door at the top of the
        2x5 room, then walk right through the destroyed door and shoot up to reveal
        a passage.  Take the door in the new passage and go right to Sector 3, then
        use a bomb on the ceiling by the door.  Jump up there and shoot the block
        on your right to reveal the bombs.

    ENERGY TANKS [2]
    #01 Go to the pink 2x2 room left of the 3x3 room, then enter the top left door
        and follow the winding room to the energy tank through a door at the top.
    #02 Once you open the level 4 locks, work your way up the right wall of the
        shaft in the next room to find a ledge.  Roll through a hidden tunnel there
        to a short shaft beyond, then work your way towards the bottom and use a
        power bomb to kill the enemies.  Avoid the X that they release until some
        of it causes two gold enemies to appear on your right.  Use missiles to
        enter that area and then use them to kill the enemies.  This will open the
        door below and in the room beyond you'll find an energy tank in the top
        right block.
    
    
    MISSILES [9]
    #01 On your way to the speed booster boss you'll enter a green 1x3 shaft,
        midway down the shaft you can walk through the left wall just above a
        ladder.  Inside the room beyond you'll find the missiles in plain view.
    #02 After the speed booster boss you'll go right to a green 1x3 room, when you
        use your speed booster be sure to hold right as you fall into the room
        below.  Alternatively you can reach this spot in the room from below but
        you'll need to use wall jumps.  Either way drop to the ledge on your left,
        and use bombs on the strip of blocks above you to open a tunnel that leads
        left.  Follow it and bomb the wall where it ends to reach the missiles.
    #03 From missile #02 above jump to the tunnel above you and follow it left,
        then drop down a little before heading right.  Jump the gap and jump
        straight up in the alcove before shooting right.  Follow the tunnel you
        opened right to reach the missiles.
    #04 Once you've used the pump in the blue door room at the left side of the
        map, drop to the ladder on your left and jump to the missiles on your
        right.
    #05 Once you've used the pump in this sector use your speed booster in either
        the pink 3x3 room as you run left or the pink 4x2 room as you run right.
        Either way you'll end up in a green 2x1 room, work your way through the
        water above to reach the missiles at the left end of the room.
    #06 Once you've used the pump in this sector head for the 2x2 room below the
        Save/Recharge/Navigation rooms.  Take the bottom left door and use missiles
        on the barrier, then bomb the wall below the wires for the missiles.
    #07 Once you have the gravity suit go to the pink 1x5 shaft.  Take the
        middle of the three doors that lead right.  Kill the enemies inside and
        get the missiles at the right end of the room.
    #08 Once you have the gravity suit go to the bottom of the pink 1x5 shaft, then
        take the right door and use a power bomb in the glass tubes.  Fall down and
        kill the enemies, then grab the missiles.
    #09 Once you have the screw attack go to the top of the pink 2x3 room, then go
        right until you reach the 1x3 room.  Use your screw attack on the enemies
        and barrier to reach the missiles.
    
    
    POWER BOMBS [4]
    #01 Once you have the power bombs go to the pink 3x3 room, from the right door
        use a bomb on your left to open a tunnel, follow it left and use another
        bomb to drop into an area below.  Finally use a power bomb and roll right
        for the power bombs.
    #02 Once you have the gravity suit go to the pink 1x5 shaft.  Go left to the
        wall below the top doors and jump up to a hidden passage left, then grab
        the power bombs beyond it.
    #03 Once you have the gravity suit go to the bottom of the pink 1x5 shaft, then
        take the left door and bomb the ceiling of the left glass tube.  Fire
        missiles above you and work your way to a ledge on the upper right and use
        bombs to reach power bombs beyond it.
    #04 Once you have the screw attack go right through the middle door of the pink
        2x3 room to the room beyond, then use your speed boost and store the charge
        before you hit the right door.  Finally do a super jump below the spot in
        the ceiling where you can see a small gap in the rocks [near the right
        door] to reach the power bombs.

    ENERGY TANKS [3]
    #01 Once you have Ice Missiles you can freeze the enemies in the shaft right of
        the Data Room.  Just before you reach the top you can enter a door on the
        left.  Ignore the fake energy tank here and use bombs in the left corner to
        get the real Energy Tank.
    #02 In the room right before the Nightmare/Gravity Suit boss in plain view.
        Before you enter the tunnel, jump straight up and bomb the wall to reveal
        another tunnel.  Take that tunnel over to reach the energy tank with ease.
    #03 Once you have the gravity suit return to the green shaft left of you and
        grab the ledge on the right wall.  Jump to the left wall and shoot a
        missile at the square directly across from the gap on the other wall.
        Enter the tunnel and slowly roll across the platforms to reveal the weak
        spots, then jump them to reach the energy tank.
    
    
    MISSILES [4]
    #01 Use the ice missiles to freeze enemies on the left side of the large 3x4
        room near the recharge room.  Use the enemies to climb to the top and enter
        the room on your left for the missiles.
    #02 Once you have level 3 locks opened you can enter the left door at the
        bottom of the left-most shaft.  Kill the enemies inside and jump below the
        missiles from left 2 squares to reach them.
    #03 Once you have level 3 locks opened you can enter the right door at the
        bottom of the left-most shaft.  Kill the enemy above you and use a bomb in
        the top right corner.  Jump up there and shoot to uncover the missiles.
    #04 Go to the bottom of the green 1x5 shaft and use the ball to enter a hidden
        tunnel at the left wall.  Use the space jump to reach the top and shoot
        the raised part of the ceiling to find the missiles.
    
    
    POWER BOMBS [8]
    #01 After getting your power bombs from the data room head for the room right
        of the lowest Save Room.  Use a power bomb and drop down the hole, then
        work your way left for the power bombs.
    #02 From power bomb #01 use a power bomb to travel upwards, then use another
        one to open up a shaft above.  Freeze the enemies as you climb the shaft
        and enter the room at the top for the power bombs.
    #03 Near the top of the 2x5 room you'll need to use a power bomb to get past a
        barrier on your left.  Wait on the ledge in the room beyond, then freeze
        the enemy when it's one square away from turning around and coming back
        towards you.  Jump on him in ball form but don't land on the squares in
        front of or behind him as you'll fall right through them.  Roll through the
        tunnel and wait at the next ledge, try to freeze this enemy closer to the
        left side of his patrol.  Then slowly roll right to see the first of four
        blocks that crumble away.  Jump from there to the enemy and then jump to
        the tunnel beyond, DO NOT roll off the end of the tunnel yet.  The first
        three blocks below you will crumble if you land on them so be sure to jump
        over them when you jump off the ledge, then get your power bombs.
    #04 Once you have the space jump go to the 3x4 room and freeze the enemies to
        make it to the top, then shoot the left door and kill all enemies on your
        right.  Now speed boost left toward the open door and use a shoulder charge
        to fly through the blocks in the next room, then grab the power bombs.
    #05 Once you have the space jump head for the red door at the top of the 2x5
        room, then walk right through the destroyed door and shoot up to reveal a
        passage.  Follow it up and use a power bomb to reveal yet another passage,
        then follow that one to the top and open both gates from below.  Finally
        bomb the left side of the wall to open a gap below and use more bombs to
        get the power bombs.
    #06 Once you have the space jump go two rooms left of the Nightmare boss room.
        Take the middle of the three left doors and use a power bomb to find the
        power bombs.
    #07 Once you have the space jump go to the first room mentioned above and go
        to the very top [third door on the right], then use a power bomb to reveal
        a passage on your left.  Follow it to the door and jump about 4 squares
        before the tunnel ends to land in a passage above you, then roll left and
        use a bomb to get some power bombs.
    #08 Once you have the space jump go to the room below the first room mentioned
        in #06 above.  Shoot the door on the right and kill the enemies on your
        left, then run all the way right and through the blocks in the next room.
        Duck after the blocks to store your charge, then do a super jump between
        the blocks and grab the power bombs.

    Sector 6 [12 ITEMS]

    ENERGY TANKS [3]
    #01 In the pink 2x2 room use missiles on the barrier and bomb the flat part of
        the right wall for a tunnel that leads to the energy tank.  Set a bomb in
        the top right corner and follow the tunnel that appears to reach the
        energy tank.
    #02 On your way to the Varia Suit boss, you really can't miss it, three rooms
        left of the Save Room.
    #03 Once you have the screw attack go down the pink 1x4 shaft at the top of the
        map, then enter the bottom left door.  Clear the room of enemies and
        blocks, then use your speed booster as you run right to the shaft.  Store
        the charge there, then do a shoulder charge right to the next room and get
        ready for some frustration.  Basically this room is filled with towers that
        you can uncover, some stretch vertically and block your path, and others
        stretch horizontally and cover up the gaps.  Once you've built the bridge
        without any vertical towers blocking you simply run all the way right.
        Your speed boost should kick in near the end, but keep holding right and
        run right off the bridge, you'll break the bottom speed block and grab
        hold of the ledge.  Now just climb up and roll to the energy tank.
    
        I find the best way to build the bridge is to stand with one foot off the
        edge of the first gap, then fire a shot right.  Do the same thing facing
        left on the first gap.  Face left on the right side of the second gap and
        back up a tiny bit before firing.  Finally fire from both sides of the
        third gap to complete the bridge.
    
    
    MISSILES
    #01 Two rooms right of the Recharge Room drop to the bottom and bomb the flat
        part in the left wall, then follow the tunnel for the missiles.
    #02 From the Save Room left of the Varia Suit boss, go to the bottom of the
        room on your right and destroy the blocks in the bottom left corner.  Bomb
        that same corner and roll left to a hidden area, then kill the enemies and
        use bombs in the top right corner for the missiles.
    #03 Once you have the Varia Suit go right to the second shaft and climb to the
        top, then go left to the next room.  Jump the crumbling blocks in front of
        the missiles to get them safely.
    #04 From missile #03 above fall through the crumbling blocks and hold left
        while falling so you grab the ledge midway down and enter the tunnel.
        Kill the enemies and shoot the flat part of the ceiling for the missiles.
    #05 Once you have the Varia Suit go to the 1x4 shaft at the top of the map,
        then enter the door in the top right corner.  Go past all the X and
        enemies to what looks like a missile room.  However when you get close the
        missiles will take off and fly away, bomb the wall behind them for the
        real missiles.
    #06 Once you have the Wave Beam, go right a room and use it to open the gate
        to the missiles.
    
    
    POWER BOMBS [3]
    #01 Once you have the screw attack go to the pink 1x4 shaft at the top of the
        map, then take the left door near the bottom.  Clear the room of enemies
        and use your screw attack to clear the blocks on the ground, then open the
        left door and use your speed booster to run right towards the opposite
        door.  Store your charge and do a shoulder charge through the open door on
        your left and through the blocks and enemies beyond.  Shoot the blocks
        below you and fall to the ground floor.  Now use your speed booster as you
        run right and store the charge when you can, then quickly go left to the
        third 2-block wide section of floor.  Position yourself on the right side
        of it and do a super jump straight up.  If done correctly you should pass
        through a column of blocks, then you can hold right and grab the power
        bombs.
    #02 In the same room as #01 above, go to the bottom left corner and get ready
        for a difficult series of tasks.  You'll first need to speed boost to the
        right wall and store the charge before you hit it.  Second, do a screw
        attack as you jump to the platform above so you don't lose the charge.
        Finally do a shoulder charge at the ramp on your left, this will make Samus
        run at full speed.  Quickly start doing space jumps left before you hit the
        line of blocks as you'll fall right through them.  If all goes well you
        should be using space jumps in the air at max speed.  Now drop through the
        speed blocks above the power bombs.
    #03 Go to the green L-shaped room and use your screw attack at the top to enter
        a room on your right.  You can also fall down the L-shaped room and go
        right a room, then use your screw attack in the ceiling to reach the new
        room.  Either way once in the new room kill all enemies but one, then jump
        to the ledge and use a bomb in the ceiling.  This should create a tunnel
        to the power bombs, then you should wait until the enemy is entering the
        gap near the power bombs.  Quickly fire a diffusion missile so that the
        enemy is frozen in the middle of that gap, now you can roll over it to
        reach the power bombs without falling through the blocks below.

    For a little while now I've had a paypal link in all my FAQs at the very bottom
    here.  Mainly as a small experiment since a few other FAQ authors have also had
    the same idea.
    
    I had a few people email me before I put this link in because they wanted to
    send money, so it's here for those people.
    
    
    For the record I've received about $87 (which works out to a bit more in
    Canadian lol) last I checked, so I've been getting cases of pop and making some
    excellent progress on a few FAQs.
    
    If you don't want to send money or can't then send me an email, it's nice to
    hear what people thought about my work and there's always room for improvement.
