    Question Help me find the name of an old 2D platformer game

    The game was a 2D platformer, the art style I think was pixelated. The story is that your sister was kidnapped and you need to save her. The first level was a forest, then the second one was I think in Egypt with pyramids.

    I'm building my first PC this December, and I'm pretty happy with my build (http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/HmW2sY). I'm now wondering if it's worth getting new a Skylake CPU and DDR4 RAM (rather than Haswell and DDR3), but as a consequence have to downgrade my GPU to something like a 750ti to...
