Genesis Metroidvania? Anonymous 11/12/2015 (Thu) 12:00:05 No. 913
Question for a dead board: were there any "metroidvania" style games for the Sega Genesis (Megadrive)? I'm willing to be fairly loose with the definition but it basically has to be a game where you have choice of where to go which is limited by what powers you've acquired up to that point (rather than something like XP levels in an RPG)

The closest I can think of having played at the moment is Chakan, which had some of the elements but didn't implement them in a way that's satisfying as a metroidvania type experience (since all the extra weapons are in the earliest stages and, aside from the grappling hook, don't get put to use very often).

Maybe the Wonder Boy games? Any others?
