Re: Quick Reference Guide to Retro Metroidvania/Platform Adventure Games

Looking at your list of games, there's a couple that don't belong - Delta Force for example has no metroidvania or platform adventure aspects at all and has no backtracking at all. At best it's an open-world tactical shooter (and even then if one enemy is alerted, every enemy on the level becomes a...

Re: Quick Reference Guide to Retro Metroidvania/Platform Adventure Games

I'm aware of it, looks decent. I'll get to it eventually, though 2011 seems quite far into the future at this rate.

Re: Quick Reference Guide to Retro Metroidvania/Platform Adventure Games

As I explain on the Outliers page: "A page for those games that are related to the genre in some ways, but don't quite fit in for one or more reasons, generally relating to the their overarching structure or a lack of platforming. I've decided not to include strictly overhead/top down view action ad...
