For years I've been wondering why this metroid password is never mentioned anywhere:
- Code: Select all
The second row should be completely empty. This password only works for the US version, so if you're testing using an emulator, be sure to use rom file named "Metroid (U).nes".
This password has always confused me. I wrote a letter once to Finland's nintendo magazine, called Nintendo-Lehti, but they didn't seem to get the password working. Obviously, they were using the european version. We had a modded version of NES back then, so our game was probably the US version (I can't be sure, I have sold that cartridge and bought a new one later on).
The game begins from Kraid's Lair, with Samus without the suit. You do have missiles, but you don't have any left. When you go to Brinstar to get the Morph Ball, it's not there. So that's pretty much it. You can't complete the game
