Author's comments and explanations:
This movie attempts to complete Metroid as fast as possible without fighting either one of the minibosses. I use the door glitch twice and Up+A once. I collect the Maru Mari, 30 Missiles, and Ice Beam (no Bombs.)

It is about 3:15 faster than ziplock's test movie. I tied Zoizite's 865 timeunits in the final shaft (FCE Ultra's frame counter is essential for mastering the technique there.)

I will respond in the Workbench Forum to whatever.

DeHackEd: Very nicely done. The people have spoken.

I'll publish it in a few hours by obsoleting your old video.
