fun game but really hard so far compared to zero mission fusion and even super metroid...

This game is glorious.

Hard game without a map, easy game with a map, recommend not using a map for a first playthrough, yes you will get lost, but you won't spoil the game.

OrageSpark, those achs you have are all awarded at the same second, must be a glitch.

An excellent game, with an enchanting atmosphere of cozy solitude, which creates a strong contrast to the tension and fear that you feel at the end of the game. It's a shame the game is underestimated. For me, she deserves a place near Super Metroid.

If anyone have saves near the first Zeta Metroid contact me. I need them in order to check and fix the "Bipedal Monster" achievement.

As many saves I have is better to check using different conditions.

Somehow mastered it in one run. Pretty dang good game, despite its age.

Protip: Use the VBA-M core if using RetroArch, otherwise Bipedal Monster won't work.
