The action-packed adventure game, Super Metroid is one of Nintendo’s classics. Be it the gameplay, the graphics, or the score, Super Metroid is a faithful continuation of the Metroid series.
Perhaps the Metroid Super Zero Mission walkthrough would help you explore it better. From Ceres Station to Red Brinstar, we have got the original Super Metroid covered for you.
The plotline for Super Metroid begins where we left off Metroid II. It starts when Ceres Station gets attacked. Here is a walkthrough for Super Metroid that covers the events of Ceres Station all the way to Red Brinstar.
After the game initializes, you will first be in an elevator. You will meet good old Ridley on your way down. The important thing is that it has a hatchling which you need.
Now, you can’t retrieve the hatchling. Ridley will fly away one way or the other. The less elegant but more efficient way is to let Ridley reduce your HP. After Ridley escapes, the area will start to self-destruct. You will have one minute to escape through the elevator. Just try to avoid the smoke coming out of the platforms by timing your jumps.
Landing on Planet Zebes
Now we follow Ridley to Planet Zebes. After you get off, go through the blue door to your left. Move downwards and you will see many doors. Go to the bottom one and move to enter another door.
In this room, ride the elevator down. Move left towards the Morphing Ball which allows you to take the ball’s form to enter gaps easily. Use it to make your way to the right.
Use the Morphing Ball to retrieve Missile Tank 01. Use these missiles to open the Red Door and retrieve Missile Tank 02. Now go up using the elevator.

Move out of the elevator to go through the left red door. Destroy enemies and retrieve Brinstar’s Map. Enter the other red door.
