#######################################################################
		†The Story of Samus Aran†
	Ok so this is basically the story of the bounty hunter we know as Samus…
		[From the journal of Samus]
	SR388. A vile planet, former home of the Metroids. After so many years, the 
remaining creatures on this planet still seemed to be trying to recreate a natural 
hierarchy, one without Metroids at the top.
	Biologic Space Labs (BSL) was hired by the Federation to observe this 
restructuring of the ecosystem. And because of my experience on SR388, the 
Federation governor for this sector hired me to provide field assistance on the 
planet. So, once again I found myself drawn to that forsaken rock.
	It was there that I discovered and organism that I had never encountered 
before. I had no idea of its danger and continued the biological sample collection. 
That organism was an undiscovered, unnamed parasitic life form known as the “X”. 
Thinking nothing of the encounter I boarded the ship. Suddenly I felt my whole body 
shaking and fell to the ground, unconscious. The ship began to drift to an asteroid 
belt and I had no way of stopping it.
	Thankfully, the auto-escape pod activated and I was saved. However, the X 
had rapidly reproduced in side of me infecting most of my power suit. Parts of it 
had to be removed surgically, alternating my physical appearance. I was given a 
minimum of 0.087% of survival. Until someone found a cure…a cell sample of the 
little Metroid that I had been saved by earlier.
	I died, leaving this world with one body and coming back with another…
					[To be continued]
#######################################################################
2. †Samus’s Moves†
So now Samus is stuck exploring the Space Station and eliminating all the X on it…
And every one knows that you can’t survive without skill. So hear I give you all of 
Samus’s basic, advanced, and my own moves.
					Samus’s Basics
	1. The first and most basic move of Samus is run. Since Samus doesn’t walk 
they make it easy for you. To run or a.k.a move Samus all you have to do is push 
and hold the > button on the control pad.
	2. The normal+spin jumps. Ok, now here we have the second most easiest 
move. To perform a regular jump you have to push the A button. To do a somersault 
or spin jump push A and hold to > or < button on the control pad.
	3. Firing a beam. To fire any kind of beam you need to press the B button. 
If you already have the charge beam press and hold the B button until the beam is 
glowing.
	4. Firing missiles. In the process of firing missiles hold down the R 
button and press B to fire. If you have a certain  type of missile you can charge 
it by holding the R button.
				Samus’s Special Abilities
	Because of the surgery of her Power Suit, Samus lost most of her special 
abilities.
You can regain these abilities by either downloading them at a data room or 
absorbing special types of X.
				Advanced Moves Using the Basic.
	Here are some advanced moves you can do while still using the basics.
   	1. You can have a very high jumping time without really having the high 
jump.
Here’s how you do that. In some rooms [for example the one with all the space 
pirates in Sector One] there are very high walls. These high walls can be used for 
your advantage; somersault close to a wall and the second you touch it press A and 
the opposite direction you are facing. If you perform this correctly you will jump 
off the wall and get twice as much air.
	2. The fake Screw Attack. To do this move you must have the charge beam. 
Charge your beam and somersault into enemies vulnerable to the beam [the water 
crabs for example] and Poof! The enemy is gone.
	3. The last but definitely not least advanced technique move is the boot 
blast off. For this move you have to have the speed booster. Charge up your speed 
and crouch to a stop. Now you can blast off in any direction you want except for 
down. A helpful tip is to press A while in crouch and immediately press right or 
left. The absolute last move you can do with the speed booster is the fake[#2] 
Screw Attack. If you’re on a ledge that goes up you’re in luck. Charge up your 
speed on the other side of the room and crouch to a stop. Now press A and which 
ever direction the ledge is in. Just when you blast off press A [oh yeah…you have 
to have the Space Jump to do this one] and continue to space jump to do sort of a 
part speed part screw move. 
########################################################################   
				  †Exploring the Space Station†
	1. Uncovering objectives: you must guide Samus to Navigation Rooms to 
update current objectives.
	2. Explore the area: the first time you enter a sector, you will download 
the map information for the area at the current Navigation Room.
				[Under Serious Construction]

########################################################################
				†Battle of the Bosses†
	As Samus continues her journey through the mysterious Space Station, she 
will have to deal with very tough bosses to uncover some of her special abilities.
########################################################################    
				         Arachnus
	This creature is the first boss you encounter in the game. It is fairly 
easy to destroy. Once you drop into the room crouch down, get your weapon ready [I 
prefer missiles since they are much more powerful…but do what ever you like] for 
this shell armored boss. Once the Core-X settles down and forms the creature fire 
away until it shoots out fire. When it does cling to the nearest ledge and 
wait ’till it becomes a ball and rams the wall right before it touches the wall 
jump off in the other direction and wait for it to turn around and pummel  it with 
missiles. Repeat until you kill it. (PS. It will take about 10 hits) Once you kill 
Arachnus shoot the Core-X that comes out to get morph ball.
########################################################################
                                                          The Core-X
	This is the second boss you will encounter and is located in Sector 1 SRX.
Enter the large room and look for a Chozo statue. Shoot the ball in it’s hands and 
wait for it to transform into a Core-X. Once it does, shoot it in the eye [once it 
opens it’s eye] and dodge the backslash.  After you defeat it you will get the 
Charge Beam.
#######################################################################
				The Jumping Freak
	The next creature you will meet is a jumping animal…creature…I don’t know…I 
call it the jumping freak…any way, to beat this jumping thing all you have to do is 
when it jumps up and opens it’s mouth shoot missiles into it. If you get caught in 
the mouth morph ball and lay a bunch of bombs. After you kill it a Core-X will come 
out. Like with Arachnus all you do is shoot missiles at it until it turns red and 
explodes. After you absorb the X, you will have the high jump and morph ball jump.
###################################################################### 
					Serris
	Ohh ho! So you’ve come this far ehh…well then you’ve reached a toughie. 
Serris is a huge water dragon that goes FAST. Once you enter the watery room climb 
up a ladder and stand on one of the platforms that is not cracked. Then Serris will 
come out and fly around at normal speed. What you want to do here is to charge your 
beam and sink down to the bottom and find a safe spot [I prefer near the door]. 
Once you have a clear shot of his head, shoot Serris. If he’s facing you, get out 
of the way because Serris will be on a rampage and will be invulnerable for a 
moment. Repeat until you defeat Serris. Your prize is the super speed booster.
######################################################################
			The Malfunctioning Security Bot   
	After you download the super missile data and  try to head out of Sector 
PYR you’ll hear an explosion. Head back to the room before the data room and you’ll 
see the Security Robot. The thing you have to do to defeat him is simply shoot the 
missiles in the weak spot (the center). When he drops the bombs, get directly under 
them and wait for the explosion.( Repeat a
s many times as needed) sorry but you get nothing’ for defeating the bot…[this time 
any way…]##################################################################
				The Big Huge Core-X
	This boss is invulnerable to missiles so  you have to charge up your beam 
and shoot at it a couple of times…you’ll get the Varia Suit as a reward.
######################################################################
				The Part Human Part X
	OK now, you will meet a scientist operating the cooling unit in one of the 
rooms while your speeding to find it…the cooling unit, of course. Shoot the fakie 
with a charged up beam shot and wait for it to turn into a Core-X. This the same as 
the Chozo statue X.
#######################################################################
				The Reactor Core Spider
	Ahh. Well then, some people say that this boss is hard…little do they know… 
Well actually, I thought it was tough-until I found a solution. (You hit this boss 
totally with missiles). Once you fall into the room stand in the middle and wait 
for a battle cry from the Spider, now you aim up and totally take it out on the 
little gut. When the Spider comes down from it’s hiding spot and starts going back 
and forth trying to pick you up, morph into a ball and go to the LEFT corner. Lots 
of people get this one confused. NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS STAY IN THE LEFT CORNER!!!! 
Ehhm. Ok now that you’ve made your first 10 shots or so, this is how you give him 
about 50 or so to destroy him completely. After the Spider stops going back and 
forth and opens his mouth, un-morph and stand directly below and shoot as many 
missiles as you can muster before the Spider spits out fire. After you blow his 
legs off, stand in the right corner and shoot the missiles as before. When you 
defeat the Spider you will gain the Space Jump ability!
######################################################################
				The Plant Boss and It’s Pals
	Now this boss is wicked hard…the only advice I can give you is stand on the 
tall pillar and keep on planting power bombs. Don’t ask why…just do it! And shoot 
and the weird uhh  thing. When it blows off its head it will start shooting plasmas 
at you. You can see if it will shoot up or down so use that to your advantage. You 
obviously have to know that is this prize is the Plasma Beam.
#######################################################################
					Nightmare
	Whoa. You are one good player to come this far. But ha! This boss is a real 
nightmare! Once you drop into the room, stand in the middle and wait for the boss. 
Once Nightmare shows up, there are two choices of weapons. One’s a charged up beam 
shot the other is missiles. Go with missiles they’re much quicker. Shoot at the 
canon until the gravity is too overwhelming. Then switch to beam until the canon is 
gone. Then climb up on the ladder and missile it in the face. You’ll earn the 
Gravity Suit as a reward.
########################################################################
				          Bot Part 2
Same thing as the other. Walk into the room plant a power bomb and go on the 
ladder. The only difference is the projectiles have changed. Shoot them down. This 
time you will get the powerful Wave Beam.
########################################################################
					Ridley (Screw Attack)
	This boss is easy. Shoot it with charged up shots (no f****** missiles 
needed!!)
######################################################################
					SA-X
	Ahh now this one is kinda hard but not really. Charge up your beam and 
perform a screw attack over it the SA-X should copy you, that’s when you fire the 
beam repeat ‘till defeat and same thing with the monster. The reward is that you 
get to live.
######################################################################
	Once you go back to the ship after engaging the crash sequence, you will 
meet up with an Omega Metroid. Let it swipe you and no matter how much energy you 
have, you will be downsized to one point and no tanks. Do not worry the SA-X will 
come and take a few shots at it and the Metroid will kill it with one swipe. 
Collect the X and perform the same thing dodging the claw attacks.
########################################################################


FAQ: I got 100% in collecting the items but I still don’t get the best ending. How 
come?
Ted: Well,  what was your ending time? That might be the reason. To get the best 
ending you need 100% and finish under 2 hours.
FAQ: The Spider keeps on picking me up and killing me. What can I do to stop him?
Ted: As I’ve said before, roll into a ball in the left corner to keep safe.
FAQ: I’ve never gotten the no suit Samus. What does she look like?
Ted: Ok, but this is kinda a spoiler but she looks the same way as if she dies. A 
bathing suit of some kind.
