I purchased an original Gameboy version of Metroid II which, of course, is used. I want to start my own game and I seem to recall there was a special key combination that you could press to clear the system memory.

How can I reset the save state so that I can start my own game?

A similar Metroid II reset question / answer on GameFaqs outlines the method below:

At the title screen, press Select. Then, hold down so that the cursor is pointing at "Clear." While still holding Down, press Start to clear that saved data and begin anew.
