Metroid Prime Controls
 Standard Controls
Control Stick: Move Samus around. Up moves her forward, Down backward. Left and Right turn her in those directions.
A Button: Fires Samus' Beam Weapon. Once you earn the Charge Beam, hold down the A Button to charge it up, then release.
B Button: Make Samus jump. If Samus has Space Jump, press again in mid-air to double jump. Also, if locked-on to an enemy, pressing B will cause Samus to make a quick jump to the side.
X Button: Switches between Morph Ball mode and standard walking mode. Only works after you get the Moprh Ball.
Y Button: Fires a Missile, once Samus finds them. There's a small amount of downtime between firing Missiles.
L Button: If an enemy is near Samus' crosshair, holding down L will lock onto it. While locked-on, Left and Right on the Control Stick will allow her to strafe around the enemy. If no enemy is targeted, then holding down L and moving Left or Right will be a standard strafe. If Samus has the Scan Visor up, holding down L will allow her to analyze scannable objects. If Samus has the Grappling Beam, hold down L while pointed at an appropriate object to fire it. Release to drop.
