Metroid Prime 4: Clone is a first-person adventure game developed by Retro Studios, and the fourth game in the Metroid Prime saga. After the events of Metroid: Other M, Samus must defeat the Space Pirates before they use a cloned version of Phazon to infect their enemies' bases.


After Dark Samus crippled the Space Pirates in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Samus and the Galactic Federation sighed in relief. However, they didn't realize that the Phazon War was over... it had only just begun...

When the Space Pirates regrouped, they immediatly tried to create a chemical "clone" of Phazon that they could control. However, it took them two years to perfect it after the beating they took by Dark Samus. Unfornatly, they perfected their "clone" and is planning to bring chaos to the galaxy and emerge as rulers. They just need to defeat their main threat...

Intruction Manual

Samus, after the events of Other M, is patrolling the galaxy in search of a bounty when the Gunship signals a distress message. Samus then finds that it came from a military base on a nearby planet. She heads inside the base, but the doors mysteriously close behind her... Samus then finds strange happenings in the base. Robotic humanoids hostile to the bounty hunter, and power gone from more then several rooms. When Samus defeats a squad of Space Pirates, she realizes that she has been tricked, and that the Pirates have destroyed communications with her ship in the fight.

Samus eventually realizes that the Pirates have been using a new form of Phazon. Samus then tries to locate the Phazon before heading into the Storage Room. She destroys containers of the Phazon, but a huge tank of the liquid breaks behind her, mutating her suit into one that shoots out the deadly liquid in energy beams. She uses this to her advantage as she makes her way though the base, blasting the Pirates as they try to fight back. However, when Samus reaches the lowest part of the base, she finds something similar to Mother Brain. The two fight each other and Samus wins the fight. However, the Mother Brain activates time bombs though the entire base. Samus escapes the base, but she and her ship are blown into a jungle by the explosion. Her ship is destroyed, and Samus walks into the jungle, hinting at another Prime game.

If the player has a 100% completion rate, a puddle of red Phazon drips down a ravine as it turns to turn blue. When it turns completly blue, it starts bubbling.


As in the other Prime games, Clone is a first-person adventure, with the player seeing though Samus' eyes. Each room is seperated with a varity of doors which either open with a blast from the Arm Cannon, or when Samus walks up to it. However unlike the other games, sometimes the player goes though 2D Morph Ball puzzles, usually involving Power Bombs. As the game moves along, the player locates Pirate Data, information about what the Space Pirates have been doing, creating, and even hints to another Prime game. In Multiplayer, players fight in special arenas, or work together to fight a boss.
