The Daily Five: Best Metroidvania Clones

"The Metroidvania genre is one of our favorites. With the emphasis on platforming, combat, and exploration, they feel like old-school gaming at its very best. One can also appreciate the amount of thought that goes into the design of even the most middling entries into the genre." - Joe Garcia, Stealthy Box (Culture)

Darksiders is not a Metroidvania kind of game. Darksiders is an Ocarina of Time kind of game.

Metroidvania is meant for 2D games only, that spot could have been given to Muramasa on PS Vita or Strider.

I prefer the term Castleroid

To save you from clicking through 5 pages, games are
- Rogue Legacy
- Shadow Complex
- Guacamelee
- Dust: An elysian tale
- Darksiders

I can recommend Rogue Legacy and Guacamelee.
