Secrets of the deep by Emortal982 Secrets of the deep by Emortal982
Or should it be Super Secrets of the deep?
It was definitely a great feeling the first time you realized you could kill Draygon by grappling an exposed power surge.
20 years later, it still feels good :)

First tribute for Super Metroid's 20th anniversary. 
I have to thank Reinhold hoffmann and Game-art-HQ for keeping me apprised of the upcoming anniversary

Is it bad that I never figured out you could grapple those power surges to damage him? Would have made it so much easier. Draygon was a pain in the ass to kill.

I've killed draygon both ways, but the grapple beam will always be the most satisfying way.

One of the most ingenious parts of the game I do believe.

I really like the way you illustrated the creature (its name escapes me) especially since we never saw it out of a 2D perspective

Excellent rendering! It's fitting that I only just recently finished Super Metroid for the first time as well!

Ah I remember fighting Draygon the hard way as my uncle just watched and laughed at me. After 2 attempts to slay the beast, my uncle told me the SECRET lol
Great work capturing this underwater skirmish!

Yah he's pretty rough otherwise.  I probably only fought him the regular way a few times, and once I discovered the grappling trick, that was the end of that.
