Doing some research for a game project, throw me some 2D Platformers/Sidescrollers

Hey Polygon,

New to the forums here, but I'm looking for a huge list of 2D platformers/sidescrollers which I can research into for my team's current game project, Remedy. After we presented it at a local Boston indie event, we received a lot of feedback and realized we needed to put more work into the design and not avoid the blindness of development we went into it with.

If you would, throw me a list of as many 2D Platformers and Sidescrollers you know, popular or not. I'm not looking for a particular art style, just ones you enjoy so we can research some mechanics a bit more.



Update: Overwhelmed with the response. Thanks everyone, and please keep em coming. <3
