The 16-bit and 32-bit era classics from Nintendo and Capcom, specifically Super Metroid and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, still resonate to this day. So much so that an entire genre, called Metroidvania was born. With the release of the excellent Dead Cells last year, it brought to light just how much innovation and genuine talent there is not only in the indie scene but in this seemingly throwback genre.

Which is why Seamus Mullins has decided to compile the 20 very best examples of modern-day Metroidvania games - with Part One covering 10 games that are definitely worth checking out.

Axiom Verge



Platform(s): Windows, Mac, Linux, Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS Vita, Xbox One, Wii U
Developer: Thomas Happ

Frequently praised as one of the best and most faithful Metroidvanias in recent years, Axiom Verge is a modern classic.

Set to a tense sci-fi story in a mysterious alien world, you’ll need to break the very game to triumph; overcoming foes and puzzles with creative and mind boggling glitches. Axiom Verge is all the more impressive knowing it was developed by one person, the incredibly talented Tom Happ, who worked on the game for several years.

Will the next list include God of War on the PS4 as it did have a bit of a Metroidvania element to it?

Shadow Complex will be number 1 for sure, though!

Good call... though personally I think God of War is more Metroid Prime...
