Hi. I am looking for some 2-D games along the lines of Claw or Jazz Jack Rabbit 2 or Super Meat Boy. They should not be DOS based games or Game Boy Advance type. Can anyone please name some good ones.

Please reply. Also, don't say Mario.

A game grabbing alot of attention lately is Terraria. It is similar to Minecraft in the fact you can mine, and explore. Levels are randomized which allows tons of replayability.

Another 2d game with lots of random maps is Diablo 2. Although, I think that classifies as a 2.5d because it is isometric.

Plants vs Zombies, Angry Birds, and any other games on the net fall under 2d are usually going to be on the same line of quality.

Civilization III is 2d / isometric, and I would spend hours a day on that game.


As for games on the line of Jazz Jack Rabbit, all I can think of is Lost Vikings. I believe Blizzard has made it capable of running with out a DOS emulator. A modern 2d game is Death and a Fly, you can look into that.

An older...

An older, but cool 2d shooter with online capability is Soldat. There is a 2d Half life which is also cool.
