TOP 100 METROIDVANIA GAMES

MetroidvMetroidvania games are like a never-ending scavenger hunt, but instead of searching for Easter eggs, you're on a mission to uncover new abilities and unlock hidden areas. Players love this genre because it combines the best of two worlds - the exploration and discovery of a classic adventure game with the combat and progression of a platformer. In metroidvania games, you're not just playing as a character, you're growing with them. As you collect new abilities and power-ups, you become more powerful, more agile, and more capable of taking on the challenges ahead. And nowhere is there a better list of top metroidvania games than on this site. We've scoured the internet to find the cream of the crop - the titles that truly embody what makes this genre so amazing. So come on in, grab your whip, grab your bow, and get ready to discover a world of hidden treasures.
