Metroid (メトロイド Metoroido ) is a series of science fiction action-adventure video games by Nintendo. It chronicles the missions of space-faring bounty hunter Samus Aran who protects the galaxy from the depredations of the Space Pirates and their attempts to harness the power of the eponymous Metroids. It is noted for having one of the first female protagonists in a video game and for its nonlinear gameplay. Metroid combines the platforming of Super Mario Bros. and the exploration aspect of The Legend of Zelda with a decidedly darker atmosphere.
As of 2011, the Metroid series consists of eleven games, with releases on every Nintendo home and portable console except the Game & Watch, Nintendo 64, Game Boy Color, and 3DS. As well as being one of Nintendo’s most financially successful franchises with over 17.44 million games sold as of September 2012, it is also one of the company’s most highly acclaimed series, with a GameRankings average score of 85% across all eleven titles.

Metroid Nexus is a WIP Metroid fangame I’m working on. I’m using Zas’ brilliant ZeroEngine because I’m a GML newbie. The game’s about 10% done so pretty much nothing’s done yet. Anyway, the full game will have at least:
• 4 areas; The Surface, The Caverns, The Depths and The Hideout (yeah I haven’t actually named the areas yet)
• 3 bosses! Worm, Dark Worm (basically Worm with different graphics and tweaked code. Man, I’m lazy) and Ridley.
