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

This movie improves on the previous attempt by the same author by 12 in-game seconds and 34 seconds of real time. It was achieved by using a different route (killing Ridley before Kraid), allowing more efficient time-saving tricks and skipping an elevator cutscene.

The in-game clear time is 0:21:27. The item collection rate is 21%.

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.

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

This movie improves on the previous attempt by the same author by 28 in-game seconds and 34 seconds of real time. The time saved comes from more optimized movements and a few minor tricks, but mainly from a greater understanding of RNG in the game.

The in-game clear time is 0:20:59. The item collection rate is 20%.

Samus' first adventure is retold in Metroid Zero Mission with extra storyline, extra items and on a system with a better graphics processor. This run completes the game with 100% item collection. At least as far as the end-of-game display is concerned.

In-game completion time is 42:28.

Award - GBA TAS of 2013
Samus's first adventure is retold in Metroid: Zero Mission with extra storyline, extra items and on a system with a better graphics processor. This run completes the game with 100% item collection, at least as far as the end-of-game display is concerned.

This is an improvement to cpadolf's 100% TAS, beating it by 38.26 seconds, 32 seconds on the ingame timer. A large part of this (29 realtime seconds, 17 ingame seconds) is because of a few route changes during the item cleanup after getting Power Bombs, but it's also because of higher optimization, faster room strategies, and better ammo management throughout the run. However, since this run is also made on a newer emulator than the published run, every room transition takes 1-2 frames longer, and the screen explaining a newly picked up item (not expansions) is a few frames slower as well.

Rather than being able to explore the world freely and sequence break to her heart's content, Samus is at the mercy of a computer's will. As a result this game is very linear with virtually no chance to collect items out of order.

The in-game completion time is 0:40 and no unnecessary items are collected (0%).

The encode without door transitions is available here on YouTube.
