The Spazer Laser Beam Edit

In the original packaging of Metroid II, the object identified as the "Spazer" in-game was listed as the "Spazer Laser Beam" in the original manual. In Super Metroid, this was officially changed to "Spazer Beam", but the fact still remains that the item's full original name was indeed the "Spazer Laser Beam". One merely needs the Metroid II manual to confirm this. Here's an excerpt from the original manual:

Spazer Laser Beam

A three way beam with an extremely wide focus is fired when this weapon is discharged.[1]

One Edit

I understand that the Spazer beam works as an individual beam in Super Metroid. I've been playing it for a few hours now and I noticed that the Ice/Spazer Beam has an odd feature about it. When I attack Zoomers with it, I noticed that, if one part of the beam is not going to hit the ledge, the game counts this as a hit, freezing the Zoomer even though the majority of the beam just hit the rock. It's interesting to say the least. KnightNapier 21:29, February 22, 2010 (UTC)

Prime Spazer? Edit


Take a look to the left where the beams are. Is that the Spazer Beam? Yes, indead it is. Now what is it doing there, in a Prime game?

I noticed that in this picture, the Spazer Beam makes an appearance! Was it to be in the Prime Trilogy after all? TerrorDactyl (TalkContribs) 21:15, March 1, 2010 (UTC)

It seems so. --RoyboyX{ADMIN} 21:22, March 1, 2010 (UTC)

I disagree. Concept art is unlikely to represent entirely ideas intended for the game. Usually the artist comes up with their own ideas, in addition to a briefing that tells them what must be there. Clearly there are three beam configurations, and the others may just be there to show what pickups in the game look like, as well as possible ideas for items. We can't say for sure that the beam was intended to be in the game, but was scrapped. HellKaiserryo12[ADMIN] (TalkContribs) 20:13, March 19, 2010 (UTC)

But we can say that they might have planned it. --RoyboyX{ADMIN} 20:14, March 19, 2010 (UTC)

Plasma Beam? Edit

Does anybody know why in the Spazer cannot be equipped with the Plasma beam in Super Metroid. I know the two beams are programmed so they normally cannont be on simultaneously, but does anyone know why the developers made it this way? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Gorea Core-X (talkcontribs) 09:14, September 8, 2014 (UTC)
