MOTHER BRAIN DEFEAT0RED!
About two seconds after I sent a spleen venting email to DeKay, I gave it another go and turned that doggone brain into spongey morsels. Immediately following this is a rather tense dash up a vertical arrangment of collapsing platforms. This latter is done against the clock with much booming and shaking and BIG NUMBERS COUNTING DOWN.
Fortunately, all went well and I reached what is effectively the end of the Metroid bit (the second half of the game is based on Super Metroid I think). So, there I was, basking in TEH VICTORY when NO! Pirates! Aaargh! They’ve stolen my power suit(?)! I AM NAKED AND ALONE!
It would seem.
Ho hum. So now I’d better get down to infiltrating that Space Pirate ship and nick back all my hard earned goodies.
