Takeaways from Metroid: Zero Mission so far:
- backtracking sucks
- hiding forward progress behind secret rooms sucks
- items as a mechanism for progression is cool (as opposes to stat-based levels)

@groovestomp I have tried finishing that game like 3 times. I always get stuck in this one place relatively early on, where I have to precisely jump between platforms.

I do want to finish it.

Never beat the original Metroid either, but I have spoiled the fun of it watching a playthrough.

Anyways, if you have never seen it, my favorite 'Metroid' game is Scurge: Hive.
