This is a game recommended for every one. This game can be hard at times, but don’t immediately try to speed run it. Play it once or twice, and then try go at it.
Today I am going to give speed running tips for Metroid Zero mission. This is an easy game to speed run. Then again I have played this game so many times that I know the amount of time in between each hit that an enemy has technical invincibility after you hit it, and how to space in between that you do double damage. That’s sadly not on here. But that is on a professional level. This guide is people new to speed running.
First of all I’m going to give tips for the infinite wall jump. In Metriod, if you go up to a wall and jump to it, if you jump away in the opposite direction you will do a wall jump. However, in Metriod Zero mission, if you go change directions back to the wall when you wall jump, you will go back to the wall, higher. So theoretically, this could replace space jump early and mid game.
Another thing in Metriod Zero mission is bomb jumping. If you have the bombs and Morph Ball (technically Maru Maru) you can do what is known as a bomb jump. You can lay as many bombs as you want, even in midair. So spam bombs and you should be able to bomb jump to normally out of reach places, even unreachable by wall jumping.
The final thing is early varia suit. As soon as you get ledge grab and ice beam, you can get the varia suit. Normally you are intended to get the high jump before hand, but all you need to do is get the enemy in the room when you first come in the room to the path to the varia suit
. Upper highest hallway right next to save room is the one
Get the enemy above the area and if you hit it perfectly timed you should be able to go to the above area right before the hallway to the varia suit. Keep in mind that this item in all technicality can be gotten late game by skipping the varia suit all together, because when you get the gravity suit you are intended to have the varia suit, so the game basically gives it to you if you don’t have it. Either way can make a speed run faster timing, with skipping the varia suit harder but faster. So in reality it is dealers choice. That is all for now.
