You know one when you see it. 2D platforming action, collectible upgrades and unlockable areas... Yep, that there is a bona fide Metroidvania. It would, of course, be too easy for us to just list off a bunch of Castlevania or Metroid games, so instead we're giving you our picks for games that fit the formula but not the franchise.
