Super Metroid Google Map

Here's a map for nostalgic computer game players. Super Metroid - Zebes is the first Google Map of a platform game that I've seen.

Super Metroid is set on the planet Zebes and this map lets you explore Zebes in all its 2d vintage glory. In truth this map is at the other end of the scale from the truly great computer game map mashups, like the amazing Grand Theft Auto IV Map.

Whereas the Grand Theft Auto IV Map lets you explore the 3d world of Liberty City in Street View, the Super Metroid Map is just a straight forward image map. However Super Metroid was voted the Best Game of All Time in 2003 by Electronic Gaming Monthly and I'm sure this map will bring back a lot of pleasant memories for many gamers.
