Tips

Back to top

back to exploded lands

After getting your suit back in chozo ruins, go to the glass tunnel that seperates chozo rins from the space pirate mother ship, (You need 3 power bombs,) place a power bomb. After the glass shaters, fall in the area no accesible, and head left. Place a power bomb at that wall. Head through the now open tunnel, and continue on until you come to a yellow door. Open the door with a power bomb. You'll be in crateria. now all the areas you've been to before, (crateria, kraid, ridley, norfair brinstar, even tourian) will all be how you left them. (This cheat for those of you who are wondering how to get that power bomb expansion in crateria.)(I still haven't found it, though.)

Black Pirate freeze

Ok

IF the balck pirate doesnt see you and you blast him very quick, he wont move or shoot.
IF he is climbing up a wall (and you are at the top) and you shoot down at him when he is almost at the top, he will freeze and shoot in the opposite direction, leaving you free from harm.
Timing is essential.

Early Sequence Breaking.

Near the very begining of the game, when going to collect the long beam, you can instead go straight for the first missile upgrade. Go to the door that you would normally need the long beam to access, and go on top of that particullar rock formation. Shoot downwards to reveal hidden breakable blocks that will let you access the door and continue throughout the game without the long beam!

It's not particullarly useful, but if you feel like using short range beam shots for the rest of the game go ahead!

Get screw attack early

Before you fight ridely, go to the area under the entrance to the screw attack. At the left end, aim up and fire missles. Keep doing this while jumpin and all the blocks will be gone.
Now, wall jump and open the door to go get the screw attack.

Getting out of Chozodia

Get the powersuit and the power bomb. Go to the area with the glass tube. Use your power bomb and it will break. Go down and use your power bomb again. Search the area and use a power bomb when you come across with a yellow door. you are now out of chozodia.

More powerful Mecha Ridley

Gather 100% of all of the items and power-ups, and the final boss of the game, Mecha Ridley, will be much more difficult to beat.

Normally, it would take 6 super missiles, or 30 regular missiles to destoy it. But when you gather all the powerups, it will take 3X's as many. So instead of 6 Super Missiles, or 30 Regular Missiles...it would take 18 Super Missiles or 90 Regular Missiles.

Technique: Extended Wall Jump

After peforming a wall jump (detailed in the tip entitled "Technique: Wall Jump") press the directional pad back toward the wall and peform another wall jump (by tapping back to the opposite direction and pressing jump). This will allow you to scale vertical surfaces after practice.

Technique: Spineshark

While Samus has a speed boost (after running interrupted for a short distance), tap down on the directional pad. Her suit will flash as if it were in a speed boost, but you will be free to walk normally. You now have a few seconds to move around. To initiate the Spineshark, press the A button. Samus will leap into the air and fly in a fixed direction using the stored energy from the speed boost. You can choose a direction by tapping it after pressing A.

Samus will not be harmed during a Spineshark and will be able to break blocks that can only be broken by a speed boost. This is useful for breaking through certain areas quicker.

Technique: Wall Jump

To perform a jump off a wall, spin jump into a flat wall (hold a direction down as you jump or press A during the jump). Tap to the opposite direction of the wall and press A to peform another jump. Samus will kick off the wall, giving you a higher jump distance.

flying

Right,what you gotta do is go into morph ball and lay a bomb and just before the bomb blows lay another and when you come down off the first the second springs you back up and timing is essential then when you are in the air every time a bomb blows lay another and slowly but surely you can reach major high places and ledges with ease and it is not difficult to get used to.

Mother Brain

Instead of jumping between platforms to shoot at mother brain try to stay as near the right edge of the right platform this way any hits you take can ricochet you off the wall and back onto the platform so you can do some serious damage and the mother brain battle time is decreased rapidly.

NOTE this is best done in easy mode with a lot of health and is mainly for speed not technique. If you are trying this battle in hard mode then this tactic is NOT for you.

Sequence Break: Screw Attack

Now, this may seem obvious, but not too many people realise it can be done. Okay, after you get the high jump, go down one level lower than the floor where you get the screw attack. You must have at least five missiles with you. Now go to where you would normally use the speed booster to break through the floor to reach the screw attack. Go to the far right of that room ( by the door ) and aim upwards. Now fire some missiles, and the blocks will be destroyed, opening the path to the screw attack. Now go get it.

Congrats, you've just made the rest of the game 70% easier!
