Milton Guasti AKA DoctorM64 is hard at work remaking Metroid II: Return of Samus that was originally released for the Nintendo Game Boy.
You can try it out by downloading the game’s demo at his blog, Project AM2R. Nintendo-Gamer recently sat down with Guasti and he shared with them on his inspirations and what did he changed from the original.
At first, the project was suppose to use sprites from other Metroid games but after it went public, artists from all over volunteered to help design original graphics to be used in the remake.
“Everything is different in AM2R: There is colour, the screen is bigger, the caves are less claustrophobic, you have a map, you can aim diagonally and run smoothly.” said Guasti.
He is also adding a lot of new elements, borrowing from other Metroid games as well as totally original ones such as the underwater temple.
This remake is certainly taking a life of its own and definitely should be on any Metroid fan’s radar.
