Ah, yet another game to check off of my "games I need to beat before I die"-list.
It was a breeze once I wanted to play it and found a good guide: Super Metroid 100% walkthrough under 3 hours with no walljumping. I have saved it offline and might even print a copy of it.
It was a surprisingly short game. I was expecting it to be much longer. Or maybe the walkthrough was just that good.
Other than that, there's not much to say. I love the music and graphics and all that stuff, it's peak SNES stuff.
I hate the controls, and I always have, and probably always will. Every setup will have compromises.
I'm probably gonna try to do another playthrough some day. Ideally I'd remember every step of the guide so I can beat it on command.
I played it on my Super Nt with a SD2SNES. While I do have a cart of the game, the SD2SNES is just much more convenient. And I can backup my save file! (and I'm gonna do that right now because I just remembered it!)
