I'm in Ridley's Hideout in Norfair. After getting off the elevator
and running through two single-screen rooms through the left door of the elevator shaft,
I'm in a very long hallway with lots of Sidehoppers. There's a huge pole/wall at the end
that I can't jump. How do I get past it?
Bomb all over the floor in that room until you blow open a hole. Drop into this hole in ball-form and simply roll all the way to the end, passing right underneath the pole.
I found the hidden Energy Tank in Kraid's room, but how do I get it?
Shoot the wall to make the Energy Tank appear. Quickly get to the ledge above it by the door. Turn into a ball and roll off the edge, hugging the wall to the right. Samus will touch and acquire the Energy Tank.
How do I kill Metroids?
Although the answer is in the Metroid instruction manual, I'll answer anyway. Freeze the Metroid with the Ice Beam, then hit it with five Missiles.
