    Default Metroidvania

    What are some good games of this genre that are not Metroid or Castlevania?

    I know of the Mummy Demastered on Switch

    What else?

    Have you tried checking out the "Metroidvania" tag on Steam? Hollow Knight, Dead Cells, Ori, Dust: An Elysian Tale - there are several good ones, something for your preference in style most likely.

    Bloodstained is out today. I got my kickstarter copy in the mail yesterday, and played it for about 6 hours. I am really enjoying it, and there is lots to explore. A couple other recent ones I have played worth mentioning are Rabi-Ribi and Sundered. Rabi throws a little bit of "bullet-hell" into the mix, and Sundered has some awesome boss fights as well as a pretty cool art style.

    Dust: An Elysian Tale as mentioned above. One a lot of people that don't think about is TMNT III Radical Rescue for the Game Boy. It's not very elaborate but it's a nice little romp, and a taste of what was to come from Konami.

    So is there any restriction on platform or era? Cuz like I'm seeing a lot of modern recommendations (odd for the Classic forum).

    I guess there's always Rygar on NES.

    The problem is that, until indies, there weren't a lot of Metroid-style games that weren't either Metroid or Castlevania.

    I mean, I guess you could count stuff like Goonies 2 and Legacy of the Wizard.

    As for modern stuff, I had fun with Xeodrifter. Iconoclasts seems cool from what I've played.
