Title: Platform / Pixel Art recommendations
Post by: csanchez on April 21, 2021, 09:36:10 pm
I would like to read recommendations of platform/pixel art games.
I have recently played Katana ZERO, excellent game with a wonderful animation pixel art
Others that I enjoyed playing as well are:
Iconoclast, wonderful pixel art animation here too.
The Messenger
Dead Cells
Probably several more that I can't remember at the moment  :P

I'm sure there's a zillion of these.  You'll have to narrow it down some.

I found Odallus poking through my Steam library just now.

Just to add on to what Jorpho recommended, Bloodstained Curse of the Moon 2 and the other Shovel Knight DLC games look great. I would also highly recommend Blaster Master Zero 1 and 2, with 3 coming up soon.
