Producer Gunpei Yokoi and the Nintendo R&D 1 team loaded a whole Metroid experience on the primitive handheld, and in a great deal of ways it looks and plays better than the NES-quality standard the studio was choosing. Following the occasions of Metroid, Samus lands on world SR388, the Metroids’ homeworld, to get rid of the biological menace.
Considering the technology of the Game Kid, Metroid II is often difficult to check out in its initial green-screen format, where backgrounds and characters don’t stick out enough to tell what’s going on when the action gets going.
