Mario esque games, which to play?
« on: December 28, 2018, 06:33:25 AM »
Hi, since I'm an extremely casual gamer and really enjoy Mario games, I was wondering if the Xbox one has any decent (2D/3D) platformers (sorry if this has been asked before).

Currently the only platformers I own on the xbone are Unraveled and Sonic Mania.

Shovel Knight is more inspired by Mega Man, given that like that game, Shovel Knight is also partially about combat as much as it is about tight platforming.

Anyway for my contribution, I heard decent things about Super Lucky's Tale, which might not be the best platformer ever, but it's probably decent game.

Thank you for reading.

The Crash Bandicoot and Spyro remasters would prolly be your best bet
Rest in peace, Walkazo.

I don't have a Xbox One but I heard some pretty interesting things about Super Lucky's Tale.

Edit: Oh whoops, didn't see Winstein's post.

Try Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams. It is a cool game that's like Mario but different.
