This is fantastic! Smooth engine, awesome style, and Metroid goodness.
Man, it`s strange to say it but now, Samus even looks cute in her Power Suit
Does it have upgrades or is it just a simple platformer ?
Is a simple platformer not enough?
Not for a Metroid game.
It looks as if Cave Story and Metroid had a child.
I find it pretty cool, but really small. Yay
Why do people say it's cute? I don't see how it's cute.
Because Samus is all tiny and it's full of unhappy platforms?
Chibi-ized things usually equal cute.
Yeah, that was my first thought. ^^
the problem with these games is they almost never get finished like this one it's been in development for years: http://metroid2remake.blogspot.com/
The original Metroid had upgrades period. Like missiles, bombs, screw attack, high jump, long fire, charge beam, etc. Simple platformer being a game where you get no upgrades at all. Metroid is known for giving you upgrades. He was asking if this game was designed after the Metroid upgrade formula.
I'm fairly sure most of the upgrades in Zero Mission were in Metroid as well. I forget if there were some that were new (i think maybe the final dungeon may have had a different suit) but the original Metroid had a ton of upgrades.
EDIT- well Zero Mission did have a couple of new abilities such as the gravity suit and plasma beam. But the majority of the items were in the original as well.
Zero mission had the edge-gripping thing, but nothing else I think.
i'm pretty sure metroid didn't have the space jump and a new beam weapon that i can remember that zero gave you in the ship after defeating mother brain.
Yeah just looked it up, it did have a new suit and a few new abilities. Movement was improved as well, like shooting diagonally. But the original Metroid did have abilities, and most of the ones in Zero Mission were in the original.
I think the space jump and screw attack were in the original btw...
