Inescapable is a game where (Solid) Snake sneaks onto Samus's starship after a Brawl and is taken to an alien planet. Slightly humorous watching him experiment with the weapons available. He later exits the ship onto a planet with his most of his standard weapons. Somewhat later into the game, his weapons and gear is affected with Phazon, and his weapons are upgraded quite a bit, and the game play changes to be more like the other Metroid games.

The game is divided into planets and areas, rather than chapters or worlds. Each "chapter" is based on Snake's first visit to a planet. There are seven official areas, and three secret.


See intro.


Fade in to a Brawl stage. Olimar flies away in his rocket ship, Captain Falcon drives away in his race car and Samus prepares to leave in her ship. Eario is seen sweeping away broken fragments of a Smash Ball. A rope ladder similar to the one Snake uses for his final smash is lifted up. Samus takes off into space. Another view of the stage is seen, from above. The camera pulls out slightly faster than the rocket ship can blast off, and it quickly shows the window the camera was filming through. It slowly turns around and shows Snake make a "shhhh-ing" motion and then smirk. Camera blacks out and shows the chicken-scratch-like title.


Samus flies to a Galactic Federation hanger to pick up some weapons. Snake finds it convenient to do the same. You go into weapon select. Each will upgrade with different stats. But you can't have all of them. There are seven weapons and you can have four. He selects his weapons and runs back to the ship. But not before acquiring a few pieces of PED armor. Based on the weapons, he may either remove the pieces from a storage room, or from a Federation soldier.

Planet 1


Atmosphere is thin, but akin to half way up a mountain on Earth. Atmospheres will determine health if Snake does not have oxygen equipment. Until then, the game plays like a Metal Gear game, with Snake sneaking around and killing weak enemies to level up his weapons and his defense. The atmosphere thins and marks when Snake has to find an oxygen tank. To leave, he must hitchhike on a ship to get to the next planet. Snake can hold two weapons.

Planet 2

Barren and rocky

Atmosphere is very thin and will cause Snake to lose health automatically. He will lose it faster if he is moving a lot. It is on this planet that he acquires his own ship from a boss. Snake can still only hold two weapons but can hold more ammunition.

Planet 3

Scarcely-populated strangely agricultured region. Very hilly, has strange structures and caves. Small streams are also part of the landscape. Remotely like Earth, except the atmosphere is acidic and tinted a light green. Plants are blue and water is green. Cool place. To travel here, all skin must be covered.

This is the first planet when game-play type two begins. Snake can hold three weapons.

Planet 4

Completely underwater

Snake has to acquire a mod for his guns so they can shoot underwater. The power-up is not available on the level and forces the player to "back-track" to another world to get it. It isn't really backtracking, as that is part of the game itself. It forces the player to explore more often. Snake is almost completely covered in armor and can hold four weapons. Mods also require room to have.

Planet 5

A boring, old, redundant, lava planet

Nothing exciting happens. Except that your suit is finally complete when you make it here. You can hold WAY more ammunition and modifications.

Planet 6

Ice. Also redundant.

This is to hopefully kill you with your super cooling systems and your shunned heaters. Snake has a special game over animation for landing on this planet unprepared. But in the end, he can hold another weapon.

Planet 7 Area 1-4

Purple, rocky, corrosive. Sometimes you are on rocky land, others you are on plant-like terrain, and others you are in potentially dangerous water.

Only have of the areas are accessible. Strange. Oh well, we get more ammunition!

Planet 8

Completely inaccessible the first time.

Covered by a forcefield, Snake lands on an orbiting moon. He enters the base and finds the key to unlocking the other half of planet 7.

Planet 7 Area 5-8

Purple, just like the last time you were here.

Except the block of area has very unstable and squishy ground. The atmosphere seems to be getting through the suit. Eventually, Snake collapses near a pool of Phazon. The ground gives way near the pool and allows him to slide unconsciously toward it. He ends up floating in it. The camera fades out. The menu appears and provides an abundance of options: Save & Quit...or....Save & Quit. Through hacking, it is possible nothing different. So really, this is Planet 7, Area 5-5.5 .

Planet 7 Area 5.5-8 (reentry)

What?! Purple landscape AGAIN? I never would have guessed!

Our protagonist wakes up. His suit is completely melded together and looks natural. He shakes his head, and walks back to his ship. It greets him as Snake and asks about the change in appearance. He looks confused, (with the suit moving to show the emotion) and rumbles in a deep, non-human voice, "What is a snake? My name is Hydrac." He then walks around and absorbs all weapons and ammunition, leaving nothing. At this point the player is completely fed up with the fact that they just lost all of the supplies they worked hard to get. Luckily, game-play style three begins, exploration is unlimited, you can hold unlimited weapons and only half of your guns need ammunition. Most are only for mods anyways. At this point, the ship is upgraded to a Phazon version. Way more awesome.

Planet 8

Robotic and metal landscape.

Plenty of factories to rob. Most enemies can be subject to a beat-em-up treatment. You are very powerful. At the end you encounter a portal room. You can only use the portal once, due to power failures. Choose wisely. You can set the teleporter and not use it. It sets up a portal to that place and leaves it until you change it. It resets when you shut of the game.

Planet 9

Electricity everywhere. Most epic place ever. If you have the right mods.

You can't fall. Awesome enough. But if you travel here with your spaceship, and then use the teleporter you set up to go back to world eight, the electricity will power the portals. With that one running, set up a new one to another world, then use it to get back. Do that with all of them if you want. They only need the electricity once. Then you can set the first teleporter to where ever you need. You won't need your space ship much anymore. Except that it is your stockpile of items, so don't get rid of it. Because you can.

But on the planet, you can also majorly pimp your ride. Pretty sweet. The actual planet is a subdued yellow when you adjust your visor. Other wise, it is too bright to see. There are different colors of electricity. Everything is outlined in blue. The walls are yellow. Purple is used to tell certain things apart. Like doors. Important stuff.


  • Federation hanger.
Available only during the beginning. Snake will make a comment on why he can't go if you set coordinates to go there. Usually along the lines of, "They probably won't treat a non-Fed approved ship/adventurer very kindly. Especially since I borrowed a few of there weapons and lost them along the way."
  • Planets 1 through 10.
A diverse range of planets described in the story portion of the article. Most are galaxies apart, providing time for the player to save/organize their items.
  • Some intergalactic tavern
No idea of what the name will be, but it plays a crucial role in some parts of the game. It provides an opportunity for help along the way and advice on certain points of the game. One can purchase items and maybe even ships here if they come at the right time. There is a table of suspicious aliens, some of which look distinctly like they share Snake's body type and build. Wieeerd. Some will brag about their feats on some of the planets you visit; inadvertently giving you hints, some generously provide some equipment, and others will sit quietly talking to another who equally wants to be invisible.
  • Ships
Snake encounters a variety of ships along his journey. Each, from Samus's to his final, provides a good deal of options. There he can pick a destination, and decide whether he wants to fly there manually or automatically. Manually allows the player to play with controls in space and have fun flying around and landing. At any time, they may decide which parts of the flight are done on autopilot, and even giving up the controls completely to autopilot. At any time, the player can skip the journey, or use the time to train on the ship. (Some don't provide this as an option.) This also allows them to check weapons, choose which weapons to take from storage for the level(s), and change other options of the game. Saving is available here. On the pause menu, saving is an option, but one that only tracks major changes (e.g. bosses, achievements, weapons, and power-ups. Progress is saved by large areas, not specifics.) Some areas may turn up close to the ship and allow much more accurate save points.


Begins as a Metal Gear (stealthy) style game, and then morphs slowly into a Metroid-style (run-and-gun/adventure) game. There are three identifiable stages of game-play.

  1. Due to the lack of powerful weapons and armor, Snake has to sneak around to find some. It begins as an infiltration game. Not a lot of platforms, but plenty of walls to hide behind. In order to kill the majority of the monsters, he has to hide in a safe location and snipe.
  2. As he gets more weapons, he doesn't have to hide from as many aliens. Many of them can be blasted while running through an area. There is more emphasis on exploration and truly begins the game-play. Some time after this style begins, Snake aquires a ship to visit other planets.
  3. Closer the end, he is much more powerful, and can morph into smaller spaces. There is more emphasis on the platformer and shooter aspects of the game. The various platforms can be used as ambush spots for the harder enemies and bosses. All levels can be revisited and explored.
  • Controls can be based off of Metal Gear or Metroid with minor changes through progression.
  • Close Quarters moves vary based on the style and progression

There are various items and and ammunition laying around. Many appear to buried and abandoned there for a while. Others are found in respawners that make that item infinite. Respawners can be found near battle fields and forts.


Some are scattered around. Others can be gotten through raiding supply rooms in bunkers. Those weapons do not respawn. But if you only take a few weapons and ammo, they will be replenished by the owners of the building.


Supplies are found where they would be naturally. In forts and in stores. There are some ammunition containers scattered around bosses where others have died fighting them.


Must be acquire through a Chozo-type statue.


  • Bosses naturally found in the Metroid universe.
  • Samus
