Free Game Friday 1/24/20: AM2R

A fan remake of immaculate quality, taking Metroid 2 for the Game Boy and updating it to include design sensibility from many later games in the series as well as Metroidvanias in general. A minimap, a logical midpoint of all the power ups between the first and third games, and gameplay revamped to be just as fast-paced, secret-laden and captivating as the rest of the series. It's a bit of a shame that Nintendo shut the game down within a day of its launch, especially as they've done nothing worthwhile with the franchise for well over a decade, but the Internet isn't where things go to disappear, now is it?
