(And this isn't the old joke demo!)
Controls are tight as hell and you can customize if you want toggle/hold missiles or 1-button diagonal aim, it's awesome. Feels better than some real metroid games I've played.

    damn.. looks awesome, but not as awesome as this



    vonrichter whos the creator of this fan made metroid game went underground with his creation in 2008, not much was heard about it, until 2010 the second trailer got released. rumors are nintendo themselves were pushing him to stop the work on this game because at the moment he released that gametrailer only 92% of the game sprites were made by himself, the rest was romhacked material acting as placeholders. anyway. ive heard he stoped the work on it, and thats a pitty

    latest video is longer, and has more footage and bonus stuff after the credits

    I vaguely remember seeing that before, too. But it's not actually playable?

    We're kind of overdue for another Metroid game. There's hasn't been one out since 2007.

    It really hit the spot, for me. Shame it's so short...

    I've seen many projects like this taking artwork, sprites, sounds and animations from the original, which is what got them in trouble. If you really want to create a fan game of this quality, you basically have to mimic the game instead of copying it. But yeah more work required is on this end of the spectrum :(


    Why cease and desist letters, why not a job/buyout for them guys! :P
