TDG said…
I am really looking forwards to this game.
The quality of the project is pretty on par of that of commercial releases and it just feels good being able to play a 2D Metroid game again. (I like the Prime games though)

I wish I had the means to make a financial donation to show my support for the hard work you put in this project and to encourage you to undertake new projects in the future.

But as others have pointed out, I am also worried Nintendo might try to quickly make an end to this.

Been following this since i saw the trailer back in 2008 "Metroid 2 Remake Preview" Feb 27 2008. it seems like only yesterday that i was an excited freshmen in high school. now i'm an excited junior in college. very proud of you Doc, you could have made this game easily with only a quarter of the things we have in the current demo but you decided to go above and beyond "just graphics". it saddens me to see people talk about this game and only its graphics as you have done so much with the game play. i have been wanting to say this for a while now.. here goes.. this game is going to be my favorite metroid game. i have made this decision based on gameplay alone. best controls, configuration, new features never seen in metroid games that work great and adds to the series and my god.. the game play has such Fluidity. i really can't find any more words to thank you and your team. thanks!

Chandler Urenda said…
Hey man, I love your game--there is just one problem: I managed to get a hold of the Gravity Suit, but every time I put it on, Samus' sprite disappears! As soon as I switch Samus out of the Gravity Suit, her sprite reappears again! When the Gravity Suit IS on, The Screw Attack function still shows up, as do the beam weapons, missiles, bombs, and morph ball light---only the morph ball doesn't show, just the background light that it normally generates. It's really weird, and difficult to get around--I simply cannot beat Serris because I cannot see where Samus is during the fight! I'm certain this is an unexpected bug, and I wanted to report it to you immediately!! This game is way too good to give up on, please fix this bug man!!!!

I am... So very, very, sad and disappointed.

I understand that Nintendo has the 100% full right to take it down...

But you don't make any hints at a sequel, NOTHING for its 30th anniversary, and then take down the best thing to happen to the series and release a freaky spinoff?!

Nintendo, I am disappointed in you. You couldn't have pulled a cool move and hired the guy and been like "You are making a new metroid game, get on it." But instead... Ugh. At least you can still get it.
Del_Duio said…
Hey buddy, as a giant fan of Metroid and Metroidvanias in general I really appreciate all your hard work that you put into this. I haven't played Metroid 2 since the Gameboy when I was a teenager and haven't wanted to again until I saw your project.
Anonymous said…
i got a weird bug. I'm running the game in Wine and it works great, until I get the Gravity suit. Then I go invisible. I changed my suit back to the Varia suit and it works fine. When I flip back to the Gravity suit, I go invisible. I messed with the options, but to no avail. I can play the game just fine, just that I'm completely invisible. Now when I morph into the ball, I'm a blue circle. Anyone else seen that? btw the game is really awesome so far.
Anonymous said…
4h 11min, 70%. Wow really awesome, takes everything that ZeroMission and fusion tried but does it better. The camera zooms out to make it playable. Level design, pacing and difficulty curve is perfect. The atmosphere and the soundtrack is superb and some of the best bosses I've ever played. (Flying Chozo, Weapon tester, Water snake, that other chozo machine.)

My only nitpicks is that I thought the low light levels were a bit to frequent in the later game. I would also have liked it to be a bit shorter. And I would have been happy to see a few less Omega Metroids (most boring boss in the game). Among all the super metroid hacks out there though this has hands down the best polish. What a labor of love. Thanks so much, happy 30th Anniversary.

god dammit after all this time... and how nintendo has done NOTHING with the metroid series for so many years.. their jealousy is pathetic and shows with this take down of such a beautiful project. i hope they see all of our disgust here in the comments.F*CK you nintendo. you couldn't make a metroid game for kids is the real reason why you have done nothing with the series, you dish the series off to other developers and AS SOON AS THE FANS MAKE THEIR OWN METROID GAME YOU TAKE IT DOWN. and on top of all that its the 30th anniversary of the series! and for many you are ruining it with this take down.

I'm sorry to see this happened to you..after so many of years showing your love for Nintendo, and this is how they repaid you.

Nintendo does not deserve the fans they have, and for this all of us should become anti-Nintendo, and never do business with them ever again. They proved they are bunch of jealous old Japanese men that never respected any of their franchises as of late. They couldn't care less about their fans, and to them it's just the almighty dollar. Fuck them, Fuck Nintendo. They can go to hell.

So pissed off Nintendo pulled the the DCMA on this project. Can't they see how this would have benefited them in the long run? This game is a fan work, that is all, no profit whatsover, and in fact it's more of a free advertising for the franchise. To me it's just bad business overall.

But they are too late, the game will exist forever in the internet. Won't buy any Nintendo related game, not even that dumb PokemonGo, lol. Not until they start to appreciate the fans.

Unfucking believable. Nintendo actually did it. I would have bet my life they wouldn't do it. They have no honor, no respect. I am disgusted. THESE SONS OF BITCHES WONT GET AWAY WITH THIS!
I can't stand by and watch this without doing something. I uploaded a fresh copy of the 1.0 version on mediafire, here's the link for people who don't have the game yet:

I'm sorry to see your project taken down by Nintendo. I have been following your blog for seven or so years so this really saddens me. But I will try not to feel too sad (and I hope you will not feel as sad too) since I know this: when Nintendo didn't celebrate the 30th anniversary of Metroid, you did, and you did it in the best way possible: by giving us the Metroid game we (the Metroid community) have wanted for years.

Your remake of Metroid II: Return of Samus is so good I would even say it rivals Super Metroid and Metroid Prime in terms of quality. Which is bat shit crazy since those are by far the two best games I have ever played in my life. The atmosphere, the gameplay, the exploration, the level design, the logs, the back tracking... AM2R has everything I want in a really good Metroid game.

Hence, for creating one of my favorite games, I thank you! Thank you DoctorM64, thank you for this masterpiece! I wish you the best of luck in the future!

What a real shame. I was looking forwards for the future of this proyect- while fantastic, there were little things that needed a 1.1, as well as what you planed for beyond.

I have my usual feedback, but I'll wait until the whole thing cools down and see what you do.

An exception is the gravity suit glitch. I didn't experience it (Win 7, ati radeon 6770), but I'd encourage everyone who does to give details on it.

I kinda don't like to admit this, but I've always been a snob about indie/fan games. To me, if it's not made by a professional company, it's amateur and not worth my time. So when I heard people raving about the AM2R demo, even going as far as saying it's on par with Super, I was skeptical to say the least. So I swallowed my pride and played the full game when it was released...

...and I've never been so happy to be wrong in my life. I absolutely loved it. There were moments where my jaw dropped. Gunpei Yokoi would have been so proud of you guys, that's all I can say. This is the Metroid game fans have been waiting for that Nintendo wouldn't make.

And as for Nintendo... I think I couldn't add anything that hasn't already been said. I've been increasingly disgusted by their arrogance and disrespect towards their fans, and this may have been the straw that broke the camel's back. I doubt I can support them anymore. But you guys I CAN support. I wish you all the best, you guys are going to have a bright future.
Windows 7 is the most recommended OS to do almost all work without any problem, So I recommend you to activate your existing OS being purchased its license code from: ODosta Store
Which is distributing license for almost all types of Microsoft Products with good customer support. I personally use it and have a good experience.
You can upgrade your windows 7 or windows 8.1 pro to windows 10, But you can face some technical issues, So I recommend you to have clean installation of Windows 7 windows 8 or Windows 10 and activate it using legal license.
