The History of the Metroid Space Ship Game

Metroid was the first in a successful line of video games to be released for Nintendo Famicom System. The system itself had a rather unsuccessful start in the console market due hardware problems, and many of them had to be recalled. Not to be deterred by this setback, Nintendo's pursuit for dominance over the market continued. The dominance was helped by the release of recognisable games like Metroid, that still have a huge fan base today. Developed and published by Nintendo and released for the Japanese console market in 1986, Metroid was designed by Yoshio Sakamoto and Gunpei Yokoi. In this classic space game you are a bounty hunter named Samus Aran, and you must venture through the planet of Zebes and defeat numerous enemies (metroids) along the way. Dotted throughout the world were various health and weapon upgrades, that would aid Samus on her quest. As well as power ups, Samus had a rather neat signature move, of morphing into a sphere which allowed her to enter parts of the world that would be inaccessible by any other means. When reaching the end of the game Samus faced a boss character called Mother Brain. Although defeating the boss wasn't exactly hard, it was what happened after that would surprise and challenge the gamer. Upon the destruction of Mother Brain, the player would then have to escape the fortress of Zebes in 3 minutes. If successfully escaping, the gamer would then be awarded an ending depending on the time spent completing the game. The Metroid video game has been released for most of Nintendo's consoles to date, the last version was released for the Wii virtual console. Metroid has had three main sequels to date which are; Metroid 2: The Return of Samus, Super Metroid, and Metroid Fusion. The Metroid game also has many spin-offs form the true sequels including; Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime Hunters, Metroid Prime Hunters 2:Echoes, and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption.
