Metroid Petroid

Metroid Petroid - 2.0

Branden Brown (unsane)



I guess this is really more of an inside joke than anything... Right click exits.

See if you can unlock unlimited size. I'm not telling how to do it, though.

rect collision detection was always returning 1 for some reason, so I had to write my own collision detection routines.


  • More music added: "Metroid II: Return of Samus Early Loop" ripped from Metroid II, "Metroid Brinstar Loop" ripped from Metroid, both ripped by RetroX.
  • Added Psyco support (I think/hope).
  • Added exception logging (a file of name [platform]_[errorTime].log, i.e. win32_1243494024.log, should appear in either data or where the game was run from if there's an exception).
  • Added indicator for unlimited size mode (using Shadow from Ian Mallett (geometrian)'s PAdLib 5.0.0).
  • Added size counter for unlimited size mode (my first use of pygame.font :D).
  • Added backgrounds (grabs *.gif and *.png in data\bgs, included images were all ripped from Metroid Zero Mission by me).
  • Added caption and icon (or did I have that in 1.5?).
  • Added screenshot function (will save [time].bmp to data\screens, i.e. 1243494024.bmp, on middle-click).
  • Changed Petroid seek point from its upper-left corner to its center (slight control improvement).

    2.0 is out and it's actually starting to look like a real game...

    Sorry; I use ftplib to upload my files (too lazy to get a "real" client), and I must have forgotten to set the open mode to rb for the files.

    both rar and zip files are corrupted. Please check them.

    Version 1.5: Added sound, added a "game finished" screen, added more spaghetti graphics, improved collision detection (now detects for the Petroid in the 4 corners and center of the spaghetti).

    I uploaded a .zip; you can find it on the homepage.

    Could you upload it in another archive format? unrar can't extract the file.
