Super Mario World is like the definitive best 2D platformer of all time. Gorgeous and creative level design, a plethora of unique levels, a challenge, satisfying secrets, best music and of course, solid as hell graphics.
There's also Super Metroid, another contender.
I've heard one of the Mega Mans fit into this category too but I haven't played any to say.
>Thomas Was Alone
Played it when it was free on PS+, didn't tthink much of it. That one twist was clever, tho.
Any side-scrollers with good combat? I liked Shank demo.
I have always heard about Cave Story but never gotten around to playing it, what is the best version to play? I can do PC or 3DS but I'm not sure if the 3D version is worth it.
people will argue against shovel knight but it's level design is actually great at teaching things to the player for the most part
play that and pay attention to how it introduces and eases the player into whatever concept/obstacles that particular level has
>how it introduces and eases the player into whatever concept/obstacles that particular level has
Exactly what I'm looking for. Thank you.
what makes a game remarkable, anon-kun?
People who aren't nostalgic for classicvanias usual like all recent 2D Castlevania games, they're all mostly great. In fact, I'd say it's better to start with resent Castlevanias since it will deepen your appreciation for the previous titles if you ever get around to playing them.
Just posting some grills for anons who reply.
