    In this section, I will show you the basics of the game and help you get
    started so you'll find it easier through the game.
    
    
    O=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=O
    1. Door System
    O=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=O
    
    There are different doors and gates throughout the game that need a certain
    weapon to open them. Here is a list to help you memorize them.
    
    Blue Doors: Can be opened with any weapon.
    Pink Doors: 5 missiles or 1 super missile.
    Green Doors: 1 super missile.
    Orange Doors: Opened with super bomb.
    Grey Doors: Cannot be opened unless blinking. Located in rooms where something
    has to be done before you leave, like defeating an enemy.
    Blue Gate: Any weapon will open this.
    Green Gate: 1 super missile.

    2. Controller Setup
    O=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=O
    
    This is the way I find easiest.
    
    Shot - Y
    Jump - B
    Dash - A
    Item Select - Select
    Item Cancel - X
    Angle Up - R
    Angle down - L
    
    
    O=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=O
    3. Moving
    O=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=~=O
    
    Some basic moves are:
    
    Walk - Right or left directional pad
    Jump - Press the jump button
    Spin Jump - Jump while pressing right or left.
    Aim Up - Either R or L
    Aim Down - Either R or L (it depends on the setting you have chosen)
    
    Some special moves are:
    
    Moonwalk - Select it to on and while charging, press the direction opposite to
    the direction Samus is facing to do a moonwalk. It's annoying though.
    Charge Spin - Charge Samus' beam and spin jump. This is like the screw attack.
    Bomb Jump - Lay lots of bombs and you can pop Samus up a fair distance.
    Super Bomb Lay - Charge Samus' beam and roll into a ball to lay five bombs.
    Speed Jump - Get the speed booster running and press down. You can then press
    jump or jump + aim up to fly up either straight, Northeast or Northwest.

    The last Metroid is in captivity. The galaxy is at peace...
    
    Samus:
    I first battled the Metroids on Planet Zebes. It was there I foiled the plans
    of the space pirate leader Mother Brain to use the creatures to attack
    Galactic Civilization...
    I next fought the Metroids on their home world, SR388. I completely eradicated
    them except for a larva, which after followed me like a confused child...
    I personally delivered it to the Galactic Research Station at Ceres so
    scientists could study its energy producing qualities...
    The scientists' findings were astounding! They discovered that the powers of
    the Metroid might be harnessed for the good of civilization!
    Satisfied that all was well, I left the station to seek a new bounty to hunt,
    but I had hardly gone beyond the asteroid belt when I picked up a distress
    signal!
    Ceres Station was under attack!

    ------------------------
    Space Colony
    ------------------------
    
    Ok, you appear on an elevator. Jump down to the bottom of the room and enter
    the room on the right. Follow the hallway and exit through the door on the
    other side. You'll notice there are levels in the room. Just go down to the
    bottom and exit the door on the right. You are now the laboratory. Just keep
    on going to the next door on the other side of the room. Follow the hallway to
    the next room. You will see the Metroid and out comes a boss!
    
    --------------
    BOSS FIGHT!
    --------------
    
    Boss Name: Ridley
    Difficulty: Very Easy
    
    All you have to do is let your life get really low from his attacks and he
    will grab the Metroid and fly away. Pretty simple.
    
    BOSS DEFEATED!
    
    Now the Space Colony will start to self-destruct. You have one minute to get
    back to the elevator. Just relax. All you got to do is run back the way you
    came avoiding the steam that shoots out, as it will slow you down. Also one
    the rooms will have tiles falling from the ceiling, so watch out here too.
    Keep on going and up to the elevator. Then you will see Samus' airship fly off
    in the nick of time. Now you will be on the Planet Zebes.
    
    ------------------------
    Planet Zebes (Crateria)
    ------------------------
    
    You will now appear on your ship. Press down to go down and save. You can also
    come back for full energy and weapons and save point. Now, you're on Planet
    Zebes and it is raining. Keep on going to your left and go in the door by
    shooting it. (Remember you open doors by shooting or blowing them up with
    something. For more information on doors, go to the basics section CONT3). In
    this room, jump over the ledge and keep running until you see a hole. Go down
    the hole and jump down off all the platforms. Keep on going down and ignore
    all the doors until you get to one on the bottom. Shoot down and drop down the
    door. (Just in case you're wondering, ignore those little crawly things
    because they won't hurt you) You are now in a very tall room. Again just keep
    on going down to the bottom and go to door on the right. Yeah this looks like
    the place Samus fought Mother Brain first, right? Anyway go across the room
    and go through the door. Get on the elevator and press down. You're going into
    Brinstar.
    
    ------------------------
    Brinstar
    ------------------------
    
    You're in a bluish room now. Go to the left and jump up the two ledges and
    fall down the little holes and go right. Go up on top of that orb there and
    you'll get your first piece of equipment. You've got the morphing ball. To use
    it, just press down twice and roll around. Press up twice and you're in
    standing position again. For more info about the morphing ball or any other
    equipment, please visit the equipment section CONT6. A light will shine at you
    now go as far right as possible and crouch down by pressing down once, and
    shoot a little loose rock. You can't miss it. Press down again and roll under
    then platform and stand up. Run as far right, skipping the elevator and go
    through the door. Jump on the platform, jump up and shoot down through the
    loose rocks. Go down to the bottom of the room and roll into a ball. Go left
    and go through the door. Jump and shoot the thing sitting in the Chozo Statues
    hand and then go over and jump on it. You now have missiles. Don't use any
    now! Each missile or weapon canister you get added some more to the quantity
    you're allowed to carry. Go back to the room the loose rocks and go up and go
    through the door on the right. Shoot the door with your missiles five times.
    Now you know why I told you not to use them. Go through the door and run
    across the hallway. Roll into a ball and keep going right. Get the missiles.
    You can now carry ten missiles. Go back out of this room, past the next room
    and back to the elevator. Go up to Crateria again.
    
    ------------------------
    Crateria
    ------------------------
    
    Next turn left. You'll notice the room is lit up. Now prepare for action.
    Enemies will be around. Shoot the creatures and collect what they left behind.
    Go into the next room. Keep on climbing the room, killing what you have to and
    go up the door. Kill the spider things and go up to the first door up on the
    right. In this room kill the flies and the other creatures and go into the
    next room. Run up to the thing and you'll get a map of Crateria. Go out and
    out the other door. After, go up to a door that has a little passage to get to
    it. Roll into a ball and go through. Save and exit. Now go to the top of the
    room and turn right. Go until you see a small passage. Roll in a ball and go
    down, then go through the door. Go through the hallway with the flies and go
    through the door. Now you will see a statue again. Shoot the orb and you'll
    get bombs. To use, roll into a ball and press the fire button to lay bomb. But
    now the door is locked? Prepare for the Chozo Statue.
    
    --------------
    BOSS FIGHT!
    --------------
    
    Boss Name: Chozo Statue
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    Ok. It will stand up and start walking towards you. The music is cool here too
    by the way. Roll into a ball and go under his legs. Then get up and shoot at
    him. Also use missiles if you have any. Watch for his arm attack and every now
    and again, he will shoot projectiles from his mouth. These can be shot and
    missiles and health will appear. Also, sometimes when you try to roll under
    him, he may jump back and shoot projectiles. Just roll back and jump over the
    projectiles and resume shooting him. His face will eventually melt off and he
    will go crazy. Do the same only faster. Soon he will be dead.
    
    BOSS DEFEATED!
    
    Get the goodies in the room and exit. Go out through the fly room and go into
    the next door. Go up and go up to the right. Jump up, roll in a ball, and blow
    up the rocks. Now go left and down the big hole or shaft again. Go to the last
    door on the left. Inside the room, roll into a ball and keep going left,
    blowing up the loose rocks as you go. Go into the next room to get missiles.
    Exit back to the main shaft and go down through the door in the floor. In this
    room, go to the bottom and go into the next room. In this room, place bombs in
    the middle of the broken tube and go down to another room to get more
    missiles. After, go to the save point in Crateria's main shaft, or go to the
    ship if you want full health and supplies.
    
    Next go to the top of the giant shaft room and go left this time. Blow up the
    rock using the bombs and roll through. Go in through the door. Go down the
    slanted room to the bottom. Get the energy tank. The energy tank allows you to
    carry another hundred energy and refills you energy as well. Go to the door
    and go in. In this room kill the aliens with missiles. Go to the bottom and if
    you're curious, go into the room on the right. Follow the corridor, and go in
    the next door. There is statue there. It won't attack but notice the eyes
    glowing in the statue. You'll find out what happens here later in this FAQ. Go
    back through the hallway and back to the room you came from and go on left. Go
    through the next room and go out the door. Get on the elevator and go down.
    
    ------------------------
    Brinstar
    ------------------------
    
    Welcome to Brinstar. It looks like plant world. Anyway lets continue. Go down
    a bit and go through the first door on the left. Kill the creatures. Jump up
    to the level and roll into a ball. Go as far as you can go then lay a bomb. Go
    on through and lay more bombs when you stop. Go on and go through the door.
    You'll get the map of Brinstar. Kill all the enemies and go on back to the
    main shaft of Brinstar again. Go to the room opposite of the one you were in,
    or the first one on the right. Jump up and walk across. Fall through the floor
    and get the missiles. Roll into a ball and drop and bomb at the partition to
    the left. Get up and go out again. That room is not totally accessible now but
    will be later in the game. Now drop down to the next-door down on the left. Go
    in and save the game. Exit the save room and go down to the bottom of the
    room. Go to the door on the left. Go through jumping on the ledges and go down
    southwest to the door. DO NOT kill the firebugs because if you do you won't
    see anything and there are spikes on the bottom so you know what will happen.
    Go in the room to get a missile refill. Exit back to the main shaft again and
    this time go right. You're in a pink place now. Go through the room and blow
    up the blockage with bombs. Go on through the next door. Now you're in a huge
    pink room. Go right and drop down. Jump into the bigger area below you. Kill
    the jumpy things and keep going until you fall through the floor. Kill the
    flying things and continue right. Drop down again and go to platform with the
    green pipe. Kill bugs for health and supplies if you need it. Go left and kill
    the other flying thing. Keep going left and drop down again. Get the missiles.
    After roll into a ball and where the two blocks are, blow them up with bombs
    and drop down the hole. Go to the statue and shoot the orb. Now you have
    charge beam. Hold the fire button to charge your beam. Go back up to the same
    level as the door you entered. Go by the door and jump up. Go pass the green
    pipe and keep going right. Jump up to the left and kill the things there and
    continue left. Then jump up to the left where the little small passage is.
    Jump up roll in a ball and go left through the small passage. Blow up the
    blockage and continue. Go through the door to the save point and save. Go back
    to where you went in the passage and go right. Stop at the green pipe and
    shoot the bugs till you have all supplies and health and keep going right. Go
    through the door and kill the big creatures there. Then shoot the upper door
    and go up.
    
    --------------
    BOSS FIGHT!
    --------------
    
    Boss Name: Spore Spawn
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    It is a big green thing on a stem and floats around in an "8" pattern. Go to
    the left corner because I find it easier and morph to a ball. Get your
    missiles ready. Every time it opens it's mouth blast it. It will get faster
    and will darken but still no harder. Repeat. If you run out of supplies kills
    some of those specks that fall. Eventually it will die and fester up by the
    ceiling. The plant like room and stuff dies.
    
    BOSS DEFEATED!
    
    Jump up on the plant and get out up through the top. Go through the door. Go
    to the green pipe and kill the bugs to get health and stuff, then continue
    right and jump on the last green pipe. You will fall down to a statue and you
    will get super missiles. Go left then and go through the door. Keep on going
    left and avoid the green pipes. Shoot the door with a super missile. Go
    through the door. In the next room jump up on the ledge, crouch and shoot
    another super missile. Go on through the passageway and come out in the big
    pink room again. To be on the safe side, you should go up to the top of the
    room and save. Then go down to the place where you got the missiles and the
    charge beam at the bottom of the room and continue right. Go through the door.
    Proceed down the slanted hallway and your will come across a gate.
    Shoot the blue and go through to the next door. In the next room, avoid the
    cactus thing, jump up on the top level run and hold the dash button to get a
    bit of speed and run pass everything, then continue through the room to the
    next door. You're in a red room now. Walk right and drop down avoiding the
    flying creatures. Roll into a ball and somewhere on the floor lay a bomb down
    to go down. Bomb the entire floor and drop down, go left and then drop to the
    floor. Go to the door on the left and go in to get energy refill. Go out to
    the main room and go right. Go through and to the next room. Continue on
    through to the next room. Go through the couple of straight ways.
    
    ------------------------
    Maridia
    ------------------------
    
    Only a part of Maridia will be accessible yet, which the tube. Just go through
    to Brinstar, to the right.
    
    ------------------------
    Brinstar
    ------------------------
    
    Go to the elevator and go down.
    
    ------------------------
    Norfair
    ------------------------
    
    This will only be a short visit to the world of fire. Go down to the third
    door down on the left. Jump and get the energy tank then go down through a
    loose block in the floor. Roll to the left and drop down and then further left
    then go through the door. In this room, jump up and shoot the top part of the
    wall to blow it away then jump down to the other side. Get the Hi Jump Boots.
    Get out of that room. In the next room jump up a few ledges roll in through
    the passage and get the missiles. Jump up to the ledge, roll into a ball then
    bomb the wall to get back to where you got the energy tank. Also kill that
    creature so the door will open. Go back to the main shaft in Norfair. Go
    across to the door on the right and save, but don't go through the next door
    because you need something and there are monsters in there. Exit to the main
    shaft of Norfair and go up to the elevator. Go up.
    
    ------------------------
    Brinstar
    ------------------------
    
    Now you're in Brinstar. Go through the door and go pass all of the straight
    passages and in the next red room, the room with two snapping creatures and
    the cactus thing, and go over by the door, but don't enter. Instead aim
    upwards and shoot the loose rock. Jump to the ledge and continue upward. Roll
    into and ball and bomb the blockages. In the last blockage, lay a bomb and
    continue pressing right because the floor will go too. Continue pressing right
    to make it across, and then go through the door. Get the orb on the statue to
    get Spazer. The Spazer is a weapon that shoots out three beams. Go back
    through the small passage in the next room, and go down the ledges to the
    bottom and go out the door to the right. (Don't bomb the floor and fall
    because you'll fall into the snapper creature) Go pass the straight ways until
    you get to the elevator room.
    
    ------------------------
    Maridia
    ------------------------
    
    Like I said, just go right to the elevator room.
    
    ------------------------
    Brinstar
    ------------------------
    
    Don't go down to Norfair. Instead, crouch and shoot a super missile at the
    right wall, with the three blocks. Go through and jump up to the ledge with a
    creature face. Go on through the door to the next room. Shoot the crabs and
    shoot the floor by the door. Go down and kill the other crab. Go down to the
    grey door and go right, roll into a ball and bomb the wall to reveal and
    passageway. Go through and jump up the door. In this room, kill all of the
    creatures and go far right until you see and notch that the morph ball can get
    in. Go down the notch and bomb the right part to reveal and passageway.
    Go through the door and save. Go back the previous room with the creatures and
    kill them. Somewhere in middle part of the room you will see a large crack in
    the floor. Bomb it and fall through, then go though the door. Kill the three
    creatures and continue left, avoiding the spikes and the ceiling spikes. Go
    right until you see a creature and start shooting it to destroy it. Collect
    what it leaves behind and go through the door. In this room, shoot the flying
    things coming out of the pipe to get health and supplies. Go pass the dead
    body and shoot the eye ball with a super missile then go back for health if
    you got hit. If you didn't, go through the door. The creature before is
    similar to next one the next room. Yeah right!
    
    --------------
    BOSS FIGHT!
    --------------
    
    Boss Name: Kraid
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    
    You will see spikes on the floor. Nothing happens for a bit then he comes up.
    Get the super missiles ready. The way to defeat him is to shoot is mouth when
    it's open. Watch the rocks he spits out then shoot him with a super missile
    when his mouth opens. He will darken and rise up to a huge monster. Go up on
    the ledges avoiding the stuff he throws at you and shoot his face. His eyes
    will glow and his mouth will open. Shoot it. Repeat. Shortly he will die.
    
    BOSS DEFEATED!
    
    Collect the stuff he leaves behind and go through the door. Get the orb and
    you will get the Varia suit. It allows you to go places with extremely high
    temperatures. Go back through the boss room and go through the room with the
    little Kraid. Go back up to the creature room and go to the save point if you
    like. Get out of the creature room by going down the door to the left. In the
    next room, roll into a ball and go through the blinking grey door. In this
    room, shoot the creatures with missiles or bomb them if they get on you. They
    suck your life so get them off quick. After, aim upward somewhere on the
    ceiling and energy tank will appear. Get it and go back out of this room. In
    this room, jump up killing the crabs and stuff and go out the door. Jump
    across from the top ledge to the place where the three blocks are. Crouch and
    shoot at the bottom one with a super missile. Go to the elevator and go down
    to Norfair.
    
    ------------------------
    Norfair
    ------------------------
    
    Now go down to the first door on the right and go in. In this room, shoot down
    at the floor and fall to the bottom floor. Run to the far right and jump up to
    the ledge then go through the door. In this room, jump across the ledges,
    killing the creatures, and go to the far right. Drop down and go through the
    door. In this room lava will fill up but won't go pass the ledges so don't
    worry. Jump across all the ledges and go through the door. Now you're in a
    bubble room.
    
    PLEASE NOTE!
    
    Areas like this and others can be very complicated so pay attention to what I
    say.
    
    Jump up to the next door to the left and go to the save point. Next go back to
    the bubble room and jump down to where there are two blocks in the bubble
    floor. Jump up and shoot them. Go down and shoot the middle block of this
    level. Roll down and bomb the blockage to the right. Kill the creature and
    continue down the path and blow out the block to the left. Kill the creature
    and follow the rest of the way. Blow the last blockage to the left and go into
    the small area. Go through the door in the floor. In this room, go to the
    first door on the right and go in. Here is little eyeball creature shoot them
    to get health and supplies. Go back to the shaft and go through the bottom
    door. In this room go pass the lava creatures and go out the next door. In
    this room, go across to the next door. Now the lava will fill the room slowly.
    Go to the far right and roll under the mouth creature and shoot up. Jump up,
    avoiding the mouth creatures and their attacks and do to the top door. In this
    room, go across the flying platforms to the other side. Go through the door.
    In this room jump up from ledge to ledge, killing the creatures, and skip the
    first door. Go up till you get to the pink door on the right and go through.
    Jump across the moving platforms and go through the gate to the missiles. Get
    them and escape this room. You'll have to come back here later so don't worry
    about the other door. Once out of this room, continue up the ledge room and go
    through the door. Now you're in the bubble room again. Go up and kill the red
    cactus and go to the right. Go in the door. In this room, kill the three
    creatures. Aim up to the ceiling somewhere to the far right of the room and
    reveal a hole. Go up and shoot up again. Go through the door. In this room,
    hold the dash button and run till you get to the next door. Before you enter,
    shoot up and get the missiles. Now go through the door. Get the orb on the
    Chozo statue to get the speed booster. The speed booster allows you to go
    super fast on long distances. Hold dash button to use. Quickly get out of this
    room. In the next room, hold the dash button to bet to the top fast before the
    lava gets you. Go back down the next room and return to the main bubble room.
    Fall down by the two blocks again and go right. Somewhere in the far right of
    the floor, drop down. Bomb your way down and get the missiles. Return to main
    area of the bubble room and go and save. Next drop down to the two blocks
    again and got to where the two doors are and go to the left one. Go in. Jump
    across the opening and go in the next door. Use speed booster here to go to
    the other end. Go in the door and save again. Now go through the left door and
    up to the highest up door on the left. Here run with the speed booster and go
    to the other end. Go through the door. In this room, jump across each flying
    platform to the other end and go through the door. In this room go over a bit
    and jump up the big ledges and avoid the mouth creatures. Go through the floor
    by the door and roll into a ball, then drop and go right into a passageway on
    the way down. Go through the door to get the Ice Beam. Go out to the next room
    and drop down to the floor and climb the ledges again but this time go through
    the door at the top. Inside, freeze the blobs and jump across then freeze the
    flying thing. Go the door and fall down. Roll into a ball and bomb the wall,
    go right, drop down by the door and go out to the main shaft in Norfair. Next
    take the elevator up to Brinstar.
    
    ------------------------
    Brinstar
    ------------------------
    
    Go to the door on the left and continue to Maridia.
    
    ------------------------
    Maridia
    ------------------------
    
    Go left to Brinstar.
    
    ------------------------
    Brinstar
    ------------------------
    
    Keep going left until you come to the tall red room. In this room, you have to
    freeze the flying creatures and jump on them to get to the top. Freeze one,
    jump on it, and freeze another, right on up till you get to the next platform.
    Go and bit right and shoot up to get rid of the loose rocks go pass the orange
    door. Keep going until you get to the blue door. Don't go in. Instead keep
    climbing up and freeze the creatures. Make it up and shoot the middle part of
    the floor to get up and go through the door. Go through this room and avoid
    falling into the mouth things in the floor. Go through the door. In this room,
    see the two blocks down through the floor? Shoot down and go down through the
    shaft. Just kill the snails and go through the door on the bottom. In this
    room, freeze the yellow blobs to get across. At the end of the room get the
    power bomb. To use this bomb, select it using the select button, roll into a
    ball and press the fire button to lay a bomb that explodes the entire screen.
    This also opens orange doors. Next, roll into a ball and let a power bomb off.
    Go left and get the missiles. Next, go out of this room and climb the shaft up
    to the orange door. Keep on going till you see a door on the right. Go in and
    save. Next, go back to the red shaft and go up till you see a green door on
    the left. Go in. Kill the huge creatures and continue left. Go to the end and
    lay a power bomb. You'll notice the floor completely blow up. Now see the
    mouth creature in the floor next to you? Go down through it to get more power
    bombs. Next go back to the red shaft and go up to the elevator. Go up.
    
    ------------------------
    Crateria
    ------------------------
    
    Go up on the platform and lay a power bomb. In the next room, climb the
    platforms and shoot the top to get rid of the loose rocks. Jump up and exit
    left through the door. Exit left again and go back to the ship. Save now.
    Next continue left and keep on going down the west path to Brinstar.
    
    ------------------------
    Brinstar
    ------------------------
    
    Now, go to the first door down on the right. Remember this place. Now that you
    have speed booster and can run fast, jump on the platform and RUN!! Then go
    through the door. Here you can acquire a reserve tank. For more info on this,
    please visit equipment section CONT6. After, go down and roll under the statue
    to get missiles. After, lay a power bomb to get another set of missiles. Exit
    this room and then on the ledge in the next room. The gates will lock so shoot
    up by the first gate to reveal a passageway. Go up and jump on the super
    missiles, then you'll fall through. Exit this room to Brinstar's main shaft.
    Go down to next door on the left to save if you like. Next use a power bomb on
    the bottom of the shaft. Go on down the shaft and go through the door. Kill
    the creatures and continue through the next door. Continue this hallway and
    jump across to the energy tank. If you just walk you'll fall through and go
    down into a weird and hard place. The four of five blocks left of the energy
    tank are the ones you can fall through. Once you get the energy tank go in the
    room to get super missiles. Exit all of this back to the main part of the
    shaft in Brinstar.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    IF YOU FELL DOWN THE HOLE BEFORE GETTING THE ENERGY TANK!
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    If you got the tank and the missiles just skip this section. If you fell go
    down to the door and save. Now continue across the hallway of hell. When you
    get to the other side, go through the door. In this room, you'll see three
    little cute creatures. See what they are doing? They are spinning and jumping
    up the shaft. You do the same by jumping at the wall (must be spinning) and
    pressing jump and direction pad opposite to the wall at the same time. Just
    keep on trying until you get up to the little platform just up from you. Roll
    into and ball and go through to the other shaft again. Repeat to try and get
    the energy tank and missiles. Once done, return to the main shaft in Brinstar.
    
    PLEASE NOTE!
    
    You'll notice that you can bounce the walls up a lot further. It is very hard
    and I consider it a side mission. So we will do this later in the FAQ.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Now, once you're in the main shaft in Brinstar, go to the right door on the
    bottom to get into the pink area. Kill all the enemies then run back and run
    across the room. You'll go down through the floor. Run left to the door and go
    through. (Ignore the bird until we get out. Fill up on energy. Then exit.
    You'll see a bird there. You should save him. Start running with him and when
    you get to the part where the long shaft up his, press down. You'll start
    blinking wait for the bird and press up jump before the bird goes up. If done
    correctly, you'll make a hole in the floor at the top and the bird will get up
    too.
    
    PLEASE NOTE!
    
    When running stop in the place where the bird stops. If not the bird will not
    get up. If you fail try again. If you don't care just go up and go out the
    door on the right.
    
    In this room go on down to exit in the lower right part of the room. Now
    you're in a green room. Instead of going down the path, jump up and you'll see
    a ledge. Get up and go through the door. Kill the creatures and go as far
    right as possible. Bomb the wall and go through. Bomb the other part of the
    wall and get the power bombs. Use one at the far right to reveal that old room
    where you got the morph ball. Continue right and go through the door. Go
    through this room and into the next room. Kill the creatures and go over to
    the far right. Shoot the ceiling somewhere around here and get another energy
    tank. Go back to the green room that descends. Go through and go to the red
    shaft. Ignore the orange door for now. Keep on going till Maridia.
    
    ------------------------
    Maridia
    ------------------------
    
    Continue right to Brinstar.
    
    ------------------------
    Brinstar
    ------------------------
    
    Go down the elevator that leads to Norfair.
    
    ------------------------
    Norfair
    ------------------------
    
    Now that you're in Norfair, go to the second door down on the left and go in.
    Get the map access and return to the main shaft. Go up to the first door on
    the left and go through. Run across the room and until you go down in a little
    place with power bomb signs. Power bomb it and drop down. Go through the room
    and exit through the door. Fall down to the bottom of this room and go through
    the door. In this room, use speed booster to get through. You'll find yourself
    in a place with a way going up, a door on the right and a door going down. Go
    up and kill the cacti and go through the door on the right. Save and exit. Go
    down and go through the door in the floor. Go right a bit and meet a friendly
    little thing.

    BOSS FIGHT!
    --------------
    
    Boss Name: Crocomire
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    Crocomire has unlimited HP. You cannot kill him. The only way to get rid of
    him is to fire super missiles at his mouth each time it opens and make him
    move backwards. Soon he will fall in the lava. DO NOT hit him anywhere else or
    let him alone, as he will come toward you, making the battle longer and more
    difficult. Avoid when he spits stuff at you and avoid his arm. When his arm
    starts moving, his mouth will open. Repeat and make him fall into the lava.
    When he melts you'll see bubbles in the lava moving to the left. Follow it
    until the spike wall. The room will shake and Crocomire's skeleton will come
    at you. Don't worry; it'll just fall apart.
    
    BOSS DEFEATED!
    
    Keep going left and go out the door. In this room, fall down and go through
    the door on the right. Save. Exit and return to the previous room. Instead of
    waiting till later, try to jump up in the top left corner and go through the
    door. Get the power bombs. Exit to the previous room and go through the door
    in the floor in the left part of the room. In this room, go right and fall.
    Go through the door to the right. Go to the other side of this room and get
    the missiles, then exit to the previous shaft. Now go through the door in the
    floor. In this room, clear out every thing with the power bomb and go to the
    far right. Run and jump at the end to fly up to a door. Go in. In this room,
    go to the statue to get the grappling beam. This tool helps you swing across
    areas that have rocks with a plus sign on them. Just select it, aim, and hold
    to swing (also works on some creatures). Go back out the door. There are
    creatures at the top of this room. Aim your grappling beam and hold on to
    them. Swing your way across this room to the top right corner to get missiles.
    If you fail, just try again. Roll into a ball and bomb your self up into the
    notch in the wall. Fall down and run up to the door where you got the
    grappling beam again. In this room, jump up on the blocks on the left side and
    get to the top. Once you get to the top, use your grappling beam to swing
    across to the door. Go in. In this room, swing across the water and get to the
    other side. Go through the door. In this room, just continue to the top
    avoiding the mouth creatures. Grapple on to the hooks on the ceiling and swing
    to the door. Go through. In this room, swing across the two lakes of water and
    open the gate, then go through the door. In this room, go up through the door
    in the ceiling. Now go back to Crocomire's room and go far right. Swing across
    the room to get an energy tank. Go back and go up through the door in the
    ceiling. In this room go to the top and go through the door on the left. Go up
    to the top platform and swing across. Get missiles but don't go through the
    gate. Go back to the previous room and go down to the last door down on the
    right. Keep going pass the lava holes and go through the door to the right.
    Get you health (if your curious, the door that goes up will take you back to a
    place you were before, but to get to the next place, the door to the right is
    the short route). Once you get your health, go to the next room. Swing across
    and go through the door. In the next room, open the gate and roll through the
    hole. Your back in this room again. Go up and go to the door to the right. In
    this room, just get to the top before the lava gets you. Go through the door.
    Go up this room and go through the second door up on the right. Jump across
    the platforms to where you got the missiles before and continue using the
    grappling beam. Go through the door and get wave beam. Go back and go up to
    the green bubble room. In the bubble room, go to where the red cactus is a
    swing across to the left side using the grappling beam. Go through the door
    and get the missiles. Exit now. Drop down to the save point and save. Now go
    back to the elevator and go up to Brinstar.
    
    ------------------------
    Brinstar

    Now that you're in Brinstar, go to the tall red room with the flying things.
    
    ------------------------
    Maridia
    ------------------------
    
    Just keep on going to left Brinstar.
    
    ------------------------
    Brinstar
    ------------------------
    
    Go up until you see the orange door. Power bomb the place and go through the
    door. (Do not kill the firebugs, as they make the light for you) Go across the
    room and hook on the ceiling with the grappling beam. Continue left until
    door. Go in. Jump on the little bit of the platform and roll into a ball.
    Bomb it and an elevator will bring up. Go over and down to get the x-ray
    scope. It allows you to see though things when used. It's great for finding
    small passages. Use it to find a loose rock above the statue. Roll into a ball
    on the statue bomb yourself up and lay one by it. When it blows up, bomb
    yourself up to it and follow the trail back to the door. Just keep going back
    till the red shaft. Go to the blue door up ahead, go through the rooms, shoot
    the gate with your beam in the second room and go to the huge pink room.
    Remember the room with the orange door? Go in there and swing up on top of the
    block with grappling hook. Shoot the blue part of the gate and go through. Go
    in through the door in the other part of the room to get another energy tank.
    Go back to the previous room, go to the far left and lay a bomb to make a hole
    in the floor. Lay another to start an elevator. Get out of this room and go up
    a bit to the big space with the grappling hooks on the ceiling. Swing left and
    get the missiles. Next, go back to the red shaft and continue up, then go to
    the door at the very top. Continue through this room to the door and go
    through. In the next red shaft, go up to the elevator to Crateria.
    
    ------------------------
    Crateria
    ------------------------
    
    Go up the door. Continue up the shaft and turn left. Go out to the ship and
    save. Once saved, run across the area to the right door and blow the rocks out
    of the way. Run left from here and when the speed booster kicks in, press down
    at the mound of ground to the left of your ship and quickly stand, then angle
    up northwest and press jump. You will fly up and reveal a passage. Use a power
    bomb to get clear of the rest of the rocks and go through the door. Go
    straight through this room, bombing all blockades and avoiding the lava (it's
    a pain in the ass!). When you get to the end go through the door and get the
    energy tank. Next, power bomb the room and reveal a small passage under the
    statue. Roll into a ball and go on through the next bit of the room, blowing
    up any blockades. In the next room, power bomb the place and reveal another
    part of the room. Walk a bit and you will start to fall down.
    As you fall down, turn right and angle your beam downward. Keep on shooting to
    reveal the path to missiles. Get to the missiles quick before you fall all the
    way down. Next continue down and go to the next room. You have been here
    before. You probably noticed the other missiles going down the shaft like
    thing above. Go back to the ship area and repeat, but this time, when you get
    to the room where you fall down, jump over left a bit so you will fall down
    the left most part of where you fall down. Angle down to the southwest and
    blast the blockade, then get the missiles. After getting both sets of missiles
    and the energy tank, go back to the ship area. This time get the speed booster
    going and press down at the mound left of the ship and this time, head up
    northeast. If you did it right, you will get stuck in the rocks and then come
    down on a ledge and you will see an orange door. Go in and get the power
    bombs. Next return to the ship area, go right and go through the door. In this
    room, go on to the door on the right. Go through. Swing across and get the
    missiles.
    
    NOTICE!
    
    Notice the hooks for the grappling beam on the last part are cracked? That
    means you can only hook on for a short period of time.
    
    Hurry across and go through the door. In this place, swing from platform to
    platform by grappling beam. Go through the door at the right side.
    
    ------------------------
    Wrecked Ship
    ------------------------
    
    Go pass the straight room and go through the door. There is a save point
    across from you but it don't work because the power is gone. How do you get it
    back on? Follow the way down to the bottom floor. Bomb the part of the floor
    by the left door and go down. Roll right and bomb more floor. Next go down and
    through the door. In this room, go right and bomb the wall. Roll under and
    shoot the eye creature blocking the door. Go through the door and wait a bit.

    BOSS FIGHT
    --------------
    
    Boss Name: Phantoon
    Difficulty: Hard
    
    So all the bosses are easy, right? Well, that attitude is going to stop here.
    Phantoon is a ghost octopus and one of the hardest bosses in the game. He will
    go around the room shooting out blue flames. All a sudden he will appear again
    and a circle of fire will shoot out. Flames will only appear for a bit and
    then he will appear with his eye open and flames falling to the ground. When
    his eyeball opens, hit him. After hitting him, he will appear in the top
    centre of the screen and will spin out flames for while. You can rarely dodge
    this. Use super missiles and in five or six rounds like the above he will die.
    
    BOSS DEFEATED!
    
    Once you defeat the boss, the power will be restored to the ship, making live
    ends of wires dangerous. Watch out for these and the enemies that surround
    you. In the previous room, go far left and go through the door to get map
    access. Next return to the previous room and go up through the door in the
    ceiling. Go to the nearest door up on the left. Get the super missiles and
    return to the main shaft. Next, go directly across, roll into a ball and blow
    up the blockages in the wall. Go through the door. In this room, go to the end
    and lay a power bomb. You'll see three or four notches appear in the wall. Try
    to get yourself up in ball mode and go in through the second notch up. Go
    through and get the super missiles. After, return to the main shaft and go to
    the next platform on the left part. Bomb the wall to reveal a hidden
    passageway. Go to the end of the room and get missiles. After, return to the
    main shaft in the Wrecked Ship. Next, go up to where you came in and go across
    to the save point and save. Next, go up and blow the annoying blocks out of
    the way in the ceiling, then continue up through the door. In this room, kill
    all the enemies and go to through the door on the right. Go through the room
    and get the missiles. Next return to the previous room. Kill all the enemies
    again and go through the left door.

    ------------------------
    
    In this area drop down and go through the door below, just to get that part of
    the map. See the reserve tank? Next, go back up to the door you came out of.
    Look for the top moving platform creature and get on it. When it reaches to
    the far left, shoot to reveal missiles. Next, go on over the ground and shoot
    down in the left area somewhere with the super missile to reveal a path.
    Follow the path down to the missiles. Next, go up again or if you don't have
    super missiles, go into one of the near tunnels and drop down and go back
    through the ship. Go to the ground area again and lay a bomb a bit more right
    and a passage will reveal, so follow it. Go through the door and continue
    through the next room and then go through the next door. You appear under the
    bridge thing or what ever. Go through the door.
    
    ------------------------
    Wrecked Ship
    ------------------------
    
    Swing across the room and land in the statues hand. Roll into a ball and the
    statue will walk down through the floor. When he drops you, immediately bomb
    the floor. Go on through and bomb the coil like things. Then stand up and
    destroy the rest of them. Get up on the ledge and bomb the wall. Go through
    and knock the robots down the holes by shooting them rapidly. When you get to
    the statue, lay a power bomb and blow the statue and the wall away. Go as far
    right as possible than speed boost left. Knock the part of the left wall away
    then go back right. Next speed boost left and press down. Now quickly run far
    right and press up to go on up the room. Fall down to the next level and jump
    to the reserve tank. Next go a bit right and fall down. Go back to where the
    statue dropped you off and go through the left door. In this room you can get
    the gravity suit. Now you can go through water easily. Next, go through the
    other door and fall down.

    Next go back and go to the save point. Once saved, drop down and go through
    the next door down on the right. Ignore the trumpet creature and go through
    the next door. In this room, jump over all the platforms and go into the next
    room. In this room, continue up and skip the blue door. Keep on going up
    shooting all blockades in the ceiling away and go through the door on the

    this room, drop down and go into the water. Go left until you see a large
    opening going up. Jump up and go left. Jump across the opening going down and
    keep going left. Jump up and in the next area, drop down into a little narrow

    BOSS FIGHT!

    Boss Name: Draygon
    Draygon is a crayfish boss that can be beat two ways. One way is simple and
    the other is hard. Two of them are listed below:
    
    Defeat Approach 1:
    Difficulty: Very Hard
    
    If you're a challenging person, try this way. Drop down and see the minions
    floating around. After they leave, Draygon will sway from a side. Equip the
    super missiles and every time Draygon comes out, blast him in the stomach.
    Repeat this several times and avoid his spit. If the spit touches you, you are
    stuck and he will take you and start swinging you around and crunching you
    with his tail. If this happens, you are dead. Also destroy the guns on the
    walls so they don't interfere.
    
    Defeat Approach 2:
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    If you suck at beating bosses, then this is the way to go. See the guns on the
    walls? Shoot them before Draygon comes out. When they are shot, they will
    break and live electricity will be there. Wait for him to spit on you and let
    him take you up. Equip the grappling beam and when you get a chance, grapple
    on to one of the electric orbs, and the electricity will pass through you to
    Draygon. Hold until he is dead.
    
    BOSS DEFEATED!
    
    Go to the door on the left and get the Space Jump. We will know finish the
    rest that needs to be done in Maridia. Go back to the boss room and run and
    jump. You'll notice Samus spins really fast. While she is in the air, press
    the jump button rapidly and ascend in the air. Go back up to the door and
    enter the room. Go back through this room to the big room. Next go back to the
    shaft room, left of this room. First go to the floor and roll under the right
    wall. Continue through the passage, moving those green monsters and go the
    door. Get the missile refill and go back to the shaft room.  Remember the grey
    door here? Go in. Follow the room left using your space jump and go to the
    door on the left end. Go through and in the next room, fall down and go
    through another door to the left. Go pass the quick sand and out through the
    other door. You're back in this huge room again. Go left and jump up. Go a bit
    right and start using space jump to climb to a door that could not be accessed
    before with space jump. Go through the door. Climb up the shaft with space
    jump and go through the door at the top. In this corridor, kill the blobs and
    go through the door on the right. In this room, go to the southeast corner and
    get Plasma Beam. Check Equipment section for more information (CONT6). Exit
    back through the rooms to the huge room again. First kill all the enemies in
    the Plasma Beam room so you can get out. Once you get in the huge room, go to
    the left to the chute. Go down. Now go right. Go through the room with the
    crayfishes and go through the door. In this room, hook on to the grappling
    hook with the grappling beam and it will disappear. Use space jump to climb up
    and go to the top. Once you get to the top, go right and drop down to the
    level walk around and fall through each level till the door. Go through the
    door and set off a power bomb. The machine will hack away at the dirt and
    create a passage. Go through the door at the other end. In this room, roll
    into a ball and take the left path to get to the statue. You'll get spring
    ball. Spring ball allows Samus to jump up while morphed into a ball. Exit back
    to the shaft-like room and continue falling down. Go down to the next room and
    go left through the door. Return to the chute room and keep going left. Go
    through the room with the crayfishes and keep going left until the broken
    tube. In the broken tube room, roll under the pink blocks and go down to
    another room. From here go left through the door. In this room, go to the far
    left and drop down to another corridor and go through the left door. Drop down
    to the save point and save. Next, exit the save room and go up to the door in
    the ceiling. In this room, go to the right door and go through. In this room,
    turn around and open the door to the left but stay in the room. Open the gate
    and kill all enemies. Go to the far right and power boost left. Before you get
    to the door press down to start blinking. Go out the door and in the next
    room, quickly go to the place where a plant sort of sticks out around the
    middle of the floor. Stop there and press jump. If done correctly, you'll soar
    up and hit missiles. After go down to the nearest door on the right. Go in and
    explore it to get the entire room explored on your map. After, go through the
    door in the ceiling to the left of the room. In this room, somewhere along the
    left there is a passage. Get up and jump down in ball form and try to get it
    the hole. If you use the scope at the right part of the ground up a little
    bit, you can see it. Anyway go in and get the super missiles. Go back to the
    big room and go up to the door in the top right corner. In the next room,
    shoot the middle part of the floor to go down and go out the door to the
    right. In this room, you can save if you like or not. Anyway, start by the
    save room and speed boost over to the far right. You see a slot going up into
    the ceiling. Press down to zoom up through everything. When you're at the top,
    get the missiles and then, go more right and jump over to the super missiles.
    Walk back a bit and fall through the floor. After go back to where you speed
    boosted up and shoot down though the floor. Go down and speed boost across.
    Take the sand down to room. Use space jump to get up. Follow the path,
    avoiding the rocks and try to use the spring ball to get up. Get the missiles
    and the reserve tank and head down to the left of the room. Go into the sand
    and sink. Return to the huge room above the corridors and tube to Brinstar. Go
    up to the second door to your right. Go in and go up by the door. Go down into
    the first shaft like part of the room (where one of the space pirates are) and
    look for a secret passage to the right. Roll into a ball and go through. Once
    through the passage, go through the door. In this room, ignore the turtles and
    space jump up and get the energy tank. After, shoot along the right wall to
    discover more missiles. Now go back to the room with the room with the
    missiles and super missiles and the two lots of quick sand below it. Go to the
    far right and shoot the floor. Instead of going to the far left quick sand, go
    to the right one. Go down and jump up the ledges on the left to get more
    missiles. After, go to the right of the screen and follow the paths to get
    power bombs. After, drop down in the sand at the right of the room to go down.
    From here go back to the tube linking Brinstar and Maridia and go to the save
    point.
    
    Maridia is now complete. Go to the save room under the broken tube linking
    Brinstar and save. Once saved, head to the tall red shaft in Brinstar
    
    ------------------------
    Brinstar
    ------------------------
    
    Once you get to the red shaft, go up to the second door up to the left. Go
    through. In this room, just keep going and go through the other door. In this
    room, go left of the gate and go up to on of the pipes on the right. Space
    jump up to it and lay a power bomb. Go through it and get more missiles. After
    go up to the ledge above and go to where you got the power bombs in the bluish
    room. Continue right until the room where you got the missiles and the large
    rocks are. Use power bombs on the rocks and then run left. Turn around and run
    left with the speed booster, press down and go up the tunnel to the top. Go
    through the door. In this room, jump up and get on the invisible platform and
    walk over to the left part of the room. Go through the door and get the
    missiles. After, lay a power bomb and get the other missiles. After, go to the
    huge pink room and go to where you got the charge beam. Set off a power bomb
    to reveal a passage under the statue. Roll under, go down and go through the
    door. In this room kill the snail creatures and then go back to the right side
    of the room. Power boost to the right and go through everything. Jump up and
    get another energy tank. After you get the tank, go to where the missiles used
    to be in this room. Use a power bomb to blow away the side and then go down.
    Use the spring ball to bet up and go left through the wall. Continue through
    the next room, killing the creatures, and go to the far left of the room.
    You'll notice in the floor that there is a weird spot. Shoot it with a super
    missiles and go down to get more power bombs. Go left and bomb the elevator
    thing up, then drop down, go right and exit back to the huge pink room. After
    you get the bombs, go to Brinstar's main shaft. Once you get into the main
    shaft, go down to where the three little bears or whatever was jumping up the
    tunnel. Use space to get up there and morph into a ball. Quickly go right and
    get the power bombs. Go out the door to the left and return to the main
    corridor. Now go to the elevator to get to Norfair.

    Go right to the room with the large creatures and the way to the save point
    before fighting Kraid. Lay a power bomb at the right side of the room to
    reveal a passage to missiles. After, go back to the elevator and go down to
    Norfair.
    
    ------------------------
    Norfair
    ------------------------
    
    First of all, go to the first door on the left. Go to the end and power bomb
    the hole to get down. Kill the enemies and go in through the door to the left.
    Stop immediately. If you fell, space jump back up to the door. Aim left and
    shoot. You'll see missiles. What you need to do is shoot and immediately space
    jump over and get them because the rock will come back fast. Go over and get
    the missiles and return to the main shaft in Norfair. Next, go to the first
    door down on the right. Go through this room and go into the next one. Go to
    the third lava area and shoot down at the right side and get the missiles.
    After, keep going right until the big bubble room. Go up to the place where
    you go the missiles (at the top left) and let off a power bomb. You'll see
    that a piece of the wall to the left has gone. Use the spring ball to get up
    there and go through the door. In this room, continue left and get the final
    reserve tank. Also, aim down at the block above the lava next to you and shoot
    it to reveal missiles. After go back to the bubble room and go to the save
    point. After saving, drop down to the blue door lay a power bomb and drop down
    the hole. Go down to the two doors and go through the door in the floor. In
    this little shaft room, go through the door at the bottom right. Next continue
    through this room to the next room. In this room, go down and go through the
    door on the left. In this room you'll notice there is lava. I didn't till you
    this before because I wanted to surprise you. The gravity suit also allows you
    to go into lava without getting hurt. Anyway, jump into the lava and use the
    space jump to get over to the platform in the top left of this room. Go
    through the mouth and go through the door. In this room, skip the elevator and
    go through the other door to save and then return to this room again. Now go
    down the elevator. Now you're in the lower part of Norfair. Just to let you
    know, the lava down here is different and WILL burn you. Anyway, go left and
    jump from block to block, avoiding the creatures and the fire, to the other
    side. Go through the door. In this room, use space jump to get over to the
    other side. When you get to the other side, lay a power bomb to blow away the
    bricks. You'll see a Chozo Statue here. Roll into a ball and jump up in his
    hand. This will get rid of the lava. Go down and go through the passage going
    down through the floor. Lay a power bomb at the bottom to reveal the rest of
    the passage. Go right to the end of the room, avoiding the enemies and go
    through the door. In this room, you'll see missiles. Try to space jump across
    to get them. The floor will collapse if you step on it. To save time in coming
    back for them, you should get them now. Anyway, go through the floor and go
    right. You'll see a statue fall down and...

    Boss Name: Chozo Statue 2
    Difficulty: Medium
    
    Ok this guy is harder then the first one, but easier than Phantoon. You'll
    notice he is golden. As you hit him, he will fade back to a dark grey like the
    first one. Anyway, charge up your plasma beam and keep on hitting him. When he
    starts walking toward you, just jump over him and hit him. Repeat till
    destroyed. Also, he has many attacks like the projectiles, beams, balls with
    bugs in them that attack, etc. Also, do not shoot missiles, as he will catch
    them and throw them back at you. If you keep hitting him, he should die pretty
    quick.
    
    BOSS DEFEATED!
    
    After, go through the door to the right and get screw attack. Next, go back to
    the room you fought the Chozo guy and screw attack up to where he fell down
    (just jump like you would for space jump). You'll notice space jump can crash
    through some stuff like some bricks and enemies. Once you get up there, lay a
    power bomb to clear out the rest and to reveal super missiles. Get them and
    return to the room you got the screw attack. Screw attack up and go through
    the next door up on the right. Get the energy and exit. Continue all the way
    up and go through the top door on the right. You see a bunch of flying
    creatures going back and forth fast. Freeze them and continue right. Go
    through the gate and go through the door. In this room, keep on going right
    and go through the next door. In this room, you'll notice that the place is
    shaking. If you want to live, screw attack through the walls going right to
    the next door before the lava gets you. In the next room, screw attack up to
    the top and then shoot the ceiling to reveal a way up. Go through the door on
    the left. In this room, shoot the middle blocks and land down on the next
    level. Go far left and lay a bomb on the block farthest left. Roll into a ball
    and go left into another part to get missiles. Go back up and go through the
    door. Go down and go through the door on the right. In this room, you'll
    notice that the place is shaking too. Go far right until you see platforms
    going up northwest. Climb the platforms and get up to the top right of the
    room. Go through the door. In this room, go on in the middle and lay a power
    bomb. Ignore the door for now. Two passages will open in the floor. Go down
    through one and continue down till the door on the right. Go in and save, and
    then exit. Now, keep on going down the shaft till the floor and lay a power
    bomb to reveal a passage. Roll through the passage and then in the next part,
    lay another to get rid of blockages and to open the door. Go through the door.
    In this room, set a power bomb off on the statue to raise a little elevator up
    in the left part of the room and to reveal a passage. Go through and continue
    through till the far left of the room. You'll see three statues but only two
    have heads. Power bomb the middle one and go down. Follow the rest of the room
    down and go through the door.

    Next, go through the left door to the next room. Here you can stock up on
    health by shooting the bugs that come out of the pipe. Continue to the next
    room. In this room, continue over to the door with the eyeball creature and
    kill it. Prepare for the next room, as we are about to meet an old friend.

    BOSS FIGHT!
    --------------
    
    Boss Name: Ridley
    Difficulty: Hard
    
    Trust me, not like the first one. In this battle, you're in a tall room or
    shaft and Ridley will appear and start attacking you with its tail. It will
    also shoot fireballs at you. Your best bet is to avoid all of its attacks and
    shoot super missiles at it like crazy. Also, he will pick you up and hurt you.
    After a short while it will die.
    
    BOSS DEFEATED!
    
    After, collect the items left behind by Ridley and go through the door on the
    left. In this room, you'll see that the Metroid casing that Ridley swiped at
    the first of the game is broken and the Metroid as escaped. Shoot the lower
    right part of the room to get another energy tank. Exit back to the room with
    the three statues. Go through the middle statue and let off another power
    bomb. You'll notice on the left there is a small passage. Go through the get
    the power bombs. Exit back to the last save point room and save. Exit the save
    room and go up where the two doors are. Go through the right one. In this
    room, shoot the head thing across from you with a super missile to reveal a
    passage. Walk through and drop down to another room. In here, go a bit left,
    fall and use space jump across the room to get the final energy tank. Now go
    back up to the place you shot the head creature and continue up to the top.
    Ignore the blue door and go left through a hidden passage, then go through the
    left door. In this room go left and then go up. Once you get to the top, go
    right to get missiles. After, use a power bomb and spring ball yourself up
    into the top passage. When you drop, go up again and continue going right,
    using spring ball to get over the hidden partitions. Once you get to the other
    side, bomb the blockage and go down the door. Use a power bomb to reveal a
    passage up in the top right part of a partition. Spring ball up and get the
    power bombs. After, go left and fall through the left partition and then go
    out the door. Return to the area where you got the previous missiles and go
    through the door at the left. In this room, use space jump and wait till the
    lava goes down then do under the gate things. Continue left and roll through a
    passage. Roll far left and then go up on the first ledge. Lay a power bomb to
    reveal a passageway under. Go left and get the final missiles. Go back and
    continue up and shoot the blockage in the above floor to get up. Go through
    the door. In this room, screw attack to the end of the room and then roll in
    through the passage. You're now in a shaft like room with ledges that you were
    in before. Go through the door too the right. You're in the bubble room now.
    Go to the save point room at the right part of the bubble room. Save and then
    return to elevator that goes up to Brinstar and go up.

    Once you're in Brinstar, go to the tall red shaft. Space Jump your way to the
    very top and go through the door on the right. In this room, continue right
    and go through the door. In this shaft, go up and go to Crateria.
    
    ------------------------
    Crateria
    ------------------------
    
    Go up and go through the door. Continue up the shaft and go right. Go to the
    huge, outdoor area with the grappling hooks and go down to the far left. Shoot
    the wall to reveal a passage. Go through to get missiles, then go back to the
    ship area (It was no use making a special trip for a measly 5 missiles, so it
    was better to wait till we got to the area). Save at your ship. Once saved, go
    through the door at the left. Continue through here and go down the hole and
    go through the door in the floor. At the bottom, go up a bit to the first
    platform against the wall at the right part of the room. Bomb the wall to
    reveal a hidden passage. Go through the door. In this room, freeze the
    creatures at the same level as the floor and quickly go back left, then speed
    boost to the right. At the end, press down and up to fly up the tunnel. Again,
    there was no need to make a special trip for these, so sense we were passing
    through the area, you mind as well get the super missiles. Go out the left
    passage and go and swing across the next room. Go through the door, bomb the
    blockage and return to the top of Crateria's main shaft. Go back and save if
    you like. Go back to Crateria's main shaft and go through the door to the
    left. Continue down the slanted room and in through the door. In this room, go
    down and go through the door on the right. Continue through the corridor and
    go through the door. Remember this place? Here's the gist of it. The statue
    had four gems glowing. If you notice, it is the eyeballs of all four major
    bosses, Kraid, Phantoon, Ridley and Draygon. When each boss is beat, the gem
    will pop out of the boss part of the statue and go down the screen into the
    water. After all bosses are defeated, a passage will be granted to another
    area of Planet Zebes. Once the statue sinks, go down and go down the elevator
    to the other and final area.

    and go through the door at the bottom right. In this room, destroy all the
    enemies and continue into the next room. In this room, destroy all the enemies
    and go through the door in the floor. In this room, kill the blue creatures
    with super missiles and continue left. In the next room, watch the Chozo fall
    to bits on the ground and then go through the door at the left. In this room
    continue left and see the blue creature.

    BOSS FIGHT!
    --------------
    
    Boss Name: Metroid
    Difficulty: Very Easy
    
    Watch the Metroid suck energy and then let it suck your energy. You have just
    1 left. Watch him go off you and then watch him fly away to the left. (Now you
    know why the Chozo was rotted!)
    
    BOSS DEFEATED!
    
    Next, go left and blow up the stuff around the door and go through the door.
    In the next room, blow up the stuff and go in through the door on the left.
    Get the missiles and the health and then exit back to the previous room. Blow
    the stuff away again and go through the door across from you. In this room,
    continue right and shoot the eyeball creature around the door. Go through. In
    this room, go to the next door down on the left and save. After you have
    saved, exit back to the previous room and go through the door at the bottom
    left. In this room, continue left, shooting the red blockages and go to the
    other end.

    FINAL BOSS!
    --------------
    
    Boss Name: Mother Brain (form 1)
    Difficulty: Very Easy
    
    Just break the tube it is in a keep on shooting it. After a while the tube
    will be completely gone and Mother Brain will fall to the ground.
    
    Boss Name: Mother Brain (form 2)
    Difficulty: Hard
    
    The brain will lift and reveal its body. Mother Brain is a creature that looks
    like no creature I have ever seen. It has many attacks that damage badly like
    the blue beam, space pirate beam, projectile bombs and the flame attack. Keep
    shooting the brain part until Mother Brain shoots out a beam that will take
    most of you life. If you don't have a lot of life, you going to die. If you
    still live, he will attack until you barely got any energy left. The brain
    will start to do another crazy attack but the Metroid will come in and chew on
    its head, draining its energy and giving it to you. After, Mother Brain kills
    the Metroid and then will start to attack you again. You have a cool power now
    so just shoot it until it is destroyed.
    
    YOU HAVE DEFEATED THE FINAL BOSS!
    
    Next, detonation is set and you only have three minutes to get back to your
    ship and get off the planet. Run through the space through the left and shoot
    the gates. Go through the door in the floor. In this room, go down and go out
    through the bottom right door. In this room, go across, then up, then left,
    then up and right. Go through the door. Go up and right then go down, left,
    down, right, up and left then go right to the door. In this room, go straight.
    You're in Crateria now and you know the way. Up. Into the next room, go up and
    then right. Go down to where you got the bombs to free the creatures. Go back
    up and go right. Get on the ship and press down.
    
    Watch as Planet Zebes blows up and Samus escapes. Also, watch a purple streak
    go across the screen. They are the creatures you saved.
    
    Congratulations, you have successfully beaten Super Metroid with 100%!

    Here is the boss list and methods to defeat them. They are the same methods as
    the ones in the walkthrough but they are here for easy access. These bosses
    are listed in order of their appearance. Here are the difficulty levels:
    
    1. Very Easy - Takes very little or nothing to beat.
    2. Easy - Pretty simple and doesn't require much effort
    3. Medium - A challenging battle that may be frustrating
    4. Hard - Boss is tough. Maybe takes a few times to beat. Frustrating. Boss
    has hard attacks
    5. Very Hard - Boss is very frustrating and could take multiple tries to beat.
    Boss as very hard attacks that may be impossible to dodge. Also, boss may big
    bigger than average making dodging harder.
    
    
    Boss Name: Ridley
    Difficulty: Very Easy
    -----------------------------
    
    All you have to do is let your life get really low from his attacks and he
    will grab the Metroid and fly away. Pretty simple.
    
    
    Boss Name: Chozo Statue
    Difficulty: Easy
    -----------------------------
    
    Ok. It will stand up and start walking towards you. The music is cool here too
    by the way. Roll into a ball and go under his legs. Then get up and shoot at
    him. Also use missiles if you have any. Watch for his arm attack and every now
    and again, he will shoot projectiles from his mouth. These can be shot and
    missiles and health will appear. Also, sometimes when you try to roll under
    him, he may jump back and shoot projectiles. Just roll back and jump over the
    projectiles and resume shooting him. His face will eventually melt off and he
    will go crazy. Do the same only faster. Soon he will be dead.
    
    
    Boss Name: Spore Spawn
    Difficulty: Easy
    -----------------------------
    
    It is a big green thing on a stem and floats around in an "8" pattern. Go to
    the left corner because if find it easier and morph to a ball. Get your
    missiles ready. Every time it opens it's mouth blast it. It will get faster
    and will darken but still no harder. Repeat. If you run out of supplies kills
    some of those specks that fall. Eventually it will die and fester up by the
    ceiling. The plant like room and stuff dies.
    
    
    Boss Name: Kraid
    Difficulty: Easy
    -----------------------------
    
    You will see spikes on the floor. Nothing happens for a bit then he comes up.
    Get the super missiles ready. The way to defeat him is to shoot is mouth when
    it's open. Watch the rock he spits hot then shoot him with a super missile
    when his mouth opens. He will darken and rise up to a huge monster. Go up on
    the ledges avoiding the stuff he throws at you and shoot his face. His eyes
    will glow and his mouth will open. Shoot it. Repeat. Shortly he will die.
    
    
    Boss Name: Crocomire
    Difficulty: Easy
    -----------------------------
    
    Crocomire has unlimited HP. You cannot kill him. The only way to get rid of
    him is to fire super missiles at his mouth each time it opens and make him
    move backwards. Soon he will fall in the lava. DO NOT hit him anywhere else or
    let him alone, as he will come toward you, making the battle longer and more
    difficult. Avoid when he spits stuff at you and avoid his arm. When his arm
    starts moving, his mouth will open. Repeat and make him fall into the lava.
    When he melts you'll see bubbles in the lava moving to the left. Follow it
    until the spike wall. The room will shake and Crocomire's skeleton will come
    at you. Don't worry; it'll just fall apart.
    
    
    Boss Name: Phantoon
    Difficulty: Hard
    -----------------------------
    
    So all the bosses are easy, right? Well, that attitude is going to stop here.
    Phantoon is a ghost octopus and one of the hardest bosses in the game. He will
    go around the room shooting out blue flames. All a sudden he will appear again
    and a circle of fire will shoot out. Flames will only appear for a bit and
    then he will appear with his eye open and flames falling to the ground. When
    his eyeball opens, hit him. After hitting him, he will appear in the top
    centre of the screen and will spin out flames for while. You can rarely dodge
    this. Use super missiles and in five or six rounds like the above he will die.
    
    
    Boss Name: Serpent (Botwoon)
    Difficulty: Easy
    -----------------------------
    
    Just wait for it to come and blast it in the head with super missiles. It
    gets faster so just avoid it and you should be safe. Also watch the green
    attacks it shoot when it comes out of the holes.
    
    
    Boss Name: Draygon
    -----------------------------
    
    Draygon is a crayfish boss that can be beat two ways. One way is simple and
    the other is hard. Two of them are listed below:
    
    Defeat Approach 1:
    Difficulty: Very Hard
    
    If you're a challenging person, try this way. Drop down and see the minions
    floating around. After they leave, Draygon will sway from a side. Equip the
    super missiles and every time Draygon comes out, blast him in the stomach.
    Repeat this several times and avoid his spit. If the spit touches you, you are
    stuck and he will take you and start swinging you around and crunching you
    with his tail. If this happens, you are dead. Also destroy the guns on the
    walls so they don't interfere.
    
    Defeat Approach 2:
    Difficulty: Easy
    
    If you suck at beating bosses, then this is the way to go. See the guns on the
    walls? Shoot them before Draygon comes out. When they are shot, they will
    break and live electricity will be there. Wait for him to spit on you and let
    him take you up. Equip the grappling beam and when you get a chance, grapple
    on to one of the electric orbs, and the electricity will pass through you to
    Draygon. Hold until he is dead.
    
    
    Boss Name: Chozo Statue 2
    Difficulty: Medium
    -----------------------------
    
    Ok this guy is harder then the first one, but easier than Phantoon. You'll
    notice he is golden. As you hit him, he will fade back to a dark grey like the
    first one. Anyway, charge up your plasma beam and keep on hitting him. When he
    starts walking toward you, just jump over him and hit him. Repeat till
    destroyed. Also, he has many attacks like the projectiles, beams, balls with
    bugs in them that attack, etc... Also, do not shoot missiles, as he will catch
    them and throw them back at you. If you keep hitting him, he should die pretty
    quick.
    
    
    Boss Names: Ridley Guards
    Difficulty: Easy
    -----------------------------
    
    Just jump over them and wait till they turn yellow and kick at you and then
    shoot a charged plasma beam at them. It'll take two hits per pirate. If you go
    back to the room, they will return.
    
    
    Boss Name: Ridley
    Difficulty: Hard
    -----------------------------
    
    Trust me, not like the first one. In this battle, you're in a tall room or
    shaft and Ridley will appear and start attacking you with its tail. It will
    also shoot fireballs at you. Your best bet is to avoid all of its attacks and
    shoot super missiles at it like crazy. Also, he will pick you up and hurt you.
    After a short while it will die.
    
    
    Boss Name: Metroid
    Difficulty: Very Easy
    -----------------------------
    
    N/A. It's impossible to lose.
    
    
    Boss Name: Mother Brain (form 1)
    Difficulty: Very Easy
    -----------------------------
    
    Just break the tube it is in a keep on shooting it. After a while the tube
    will be completely gone and Mother Brain will fall to the ground.
    
    Boss Name: Mother Brain (form 2)
    Difficulty: Hard
    
    The brain will lift and reveal its body. Mother Brain is a creature that looks
    like no creature I have ever seen. It has many attacks that damage badly. Keep
    shooting the brain part until Mother Brain shoots out a beam that will take
    most of you life. If you don't have over 80 or so percent, you're going to
    die. If you're still alive, the Metroid will come in and chew on its head,
    draining its energy and giving it to you. After, Mother Brain kills the
    Metroid and then will start to attack you again. You have a cool power now so
    just shoot it until it is destroyed.

    In summary, I would like to say that Super Metroid was one of my best games I
    have played for SNES, or probably the best. The graphics and excellent and the
    music is great. It features an intense and cool story of events and is easy to
    control, but there are some problems I can't get use to. Below is my rating
    for this game:
    
    Graphics    -------------------------------- 10/10
    Sound       -------------------------------- 10/10
    Storyline   -------------------------------- 10/10
    Controls    -------------------------------- 9/10
    
    Overall     -------------------------------- 9.5/10
    
    I rate this game very good. Good job Nintendo. If you are checking here for
    the ratings and thinking of getting the game somewhere, get it. It's awesome.
    Hope you enjoyed this FAQ and watch for updates and new stuff.
