This is a good Metroidygar.
Fun Fact: The genre is called "Metroidygar" because Rygar added RPG elements.

The original SotN experiment.

Rygar isnt really a metroidvania, the stages are still pretty linear and the top view land is more of a hub world, most of it is also jank.

Please kill yourself now

>>8906423
NES was full of metroidvanias
>>
>>8906530
You'd rather have them called Search Action games?
>>
>>8906423
That looks like Maximo's artist.
>>
>>8906541
Actually I'd rather have them called Search! Action! games.
>>
>>8906558
You're right. That guy's done a lot of great art.

Stop talking about metroidvanias. I am not going to play your SoTN super metroid inspired game or your Earthbound inspired game.

Jeremy Parish himself called Rygar the "first NES metroidygar".

Rygar is a non-linear platformer-adventure where you acquire new abilities to reach new areas.

>Metroidvania

Metroidvania = Metroid + Castlevania, the later referring to the RPG elements brought by SotN

If it doesn't have RPG elements, it's not a Metroidvania, it's just a Metroid. Metroid is not a Metroidvania, it's a Metroid.

Calling Metroid-likes "Metroidvania" is as incorrect as calling House of the Dead or Parasite Eve "survival horror", but that's also a thing.

Isn't this the one where you play as Mikie? Why is Leo on the cover?

You can spam attack constantly respawning enemies in the first level and max out your health bar.

I was under the impression the Japanese version featured saving or at least passwords

>>8906512
Yes, Blaster Master is definitely awesome. That music too. So good!

Ufouria/Hebereke on the NES

what an ungrateful rotten bitch, multiple games of saving your ass in and the least you can do is service your husband every night for the rest of your life to make up for all that hell

lol
SMB is less linear than Rygar. Don't get me wrong. I love Rygar (except the music in Dorago's Palace), but claiming it's anything but linear is just silly.

>>8907078
If one of the different music tracks is Dorago's Palace, that might fix the only bad thing about the game.

The Japanese call them "Tansakuvanias" for the "exploration" element.

More like belt questing

Wonder Boy the Dragon's Trap created every mechanic that is supposed to special in SotN.

Apart from it's graphics SotN is utterly unremarkable in gaming history and is popular for hipster reasons.

Once you get the pulley+crossbow, can't you choose between three areas to go?
>If one of the different music tracks is Dorago's Palace, that might fix the only bad thing about the game.
The entire soundtrack is different: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QllOiXFpigA

I've been meaning to play Rygar for the longest time.

I'm glad this game was so short because it was lame.

How many games had that even?
>>
>>8909135
I still preffer some of the tracks in the US version.

Multiple background layers on MY NES?

Nope, it's just sprites. Looks amazing though.

Someone needs to make a romhack that fixes the hit detection on shit like ropes, doors, pulleys, etc

it all sucks ass
