Game Overview

It’s you against the evil Mother Brain in the thrilling battle of Metroid.

The first installment in the immensely successful Metroid series introduces us to the hideous title creatures and the slick, cybernetic bounty hunter Samus Aran. As Samus™, your mission is to penetrate the space pirates’ home planet of Zebes and keep them from destroying the galaxy with dangerous life forms known as Metroids. Metroid has all the high-tech weaponry, creepy tunnels and crawly alien creatures that anyone could ask for. With its deep and complex game play, excellent music and a rare sense of setting, it establishes a frightening ambience that will haunt and entertain you for a very long time.


This game is only playable in 2D.
