Metroid: Zero Mission is a retelling of the original Metroid's story with a couple of new plot twists and updated gameplay.

This movie is a long-awaited improvement to the 1st GBA TAS by BoltR. Much of the almost 3 minute improvement came from a different route (Kraid was fought before Ridley), increased precision, the lack of emulator lag*, and other tricks explained in the author's comments.

The in-game clear time is 0:21:39. The item collection rate is 22%.

* — The previous version was done before lag reduction was programmed into VisualBoy Advance, so the movie times aren't directly comparable.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.

Webmasters, please don't link directly to the files. Link to this page or the front page instead.
