Metroid completed using just one item: the morphing ball.

Uses a game restart sequence (Up+A on second controller) to save time in backtracking.

This is an improvement of 36.7 seconds over the previously published run, thanks to a new route and general optimization.

This movie features commentary by the author, which has been added to the encode in the form of soft subtitles. They can be seen when watching the embedded stream via Archive.org.
