Side-scrolling video games are a staple for video games. It’s just an assumption that most of the titles we picked during the early years of gaming would be based on side scrolling but as time goes on and we have larger 3D worlds we see fewer titles released for this genre. That’s not to say you won’t find any new side-scrolling titles to play today. In this list, we’ll take a look at some of the cool new video games you can pick up this year.
Ghost ‘n Goblins Resurrection – side scrolling
Another blast from the previous game that players can enjoy with Ghost ‘n Goblins Resurrection. The franchise is back to being completely reimagined, where you’ll once again have to save time by battling all sorts of diabolical enemies that pop up along the way.
This franchise can be viewed as quite daunting at times, but over the years it has gained a huge following. You can expect another difficult game here but surround by simple controls. As you progress, players will unlock more magical weapons and skills to use but that doesn’t mean you’ll have to go through this game alone.
For the first time in the series, you’ll find a two-player co-op experience available here, and since we’ll probably get the game on June 1, 2021, we won’t have to. Long wait please endure before we can try this title for ourselves.
30XX – side scrolling
One side scrolling game out now but through early access is 30XX, another human-like action platformer. This particular title takes place after the events of the year 20XX, where our protagonist has awakened thousands of years into the future.
You will now discover that life has changed after humanity was taken over by the emergence of the Synthetic Mind. If you like 20XX then chances are you’ll get just as much fun out of 30XX with its new collection of levels, enemies, and powerups. However, this is a roguelike title so there will be a lot of changes made along the way so you always try.
Best of all, upon completing this game you will find that there is a level editor that will come with all the tools to build your own unique levels and campaigns. With that said, since this is early access, you’ll likely find plenty of changes made along the way until the game is fully marketed.
Streets of Rage 4 Mr. X Nightmare DLC
Streets of Rage is an action-defeating, side scrolling title that resurfaces in the days of the Sega Genesis platform. If you have this console, chances are you already have the Streets of Rage collection.
There’s so much enjoyment out of these titles that it’s a bit of a surprise to see Streets of Rage 4 suddenly announced and released in 2020. Decades later, we’re in love with the gameplay again. a story that takes place after events from previous installments. With that said, fans are getting ready for the upcoming DLC expansion for this game Mr. X Nightmare.
While Mr. X was no longer a threat, the gang decided to train for anything else that might come up and that’s when Dr. Zan was able to tap into Mr. X’s brain to do some fighting. simulation. There are brand new levels, new characters, weapons, and enemies added to this game. We’re still waiting for this game’s release date but it’s likely to come out at some point this year.
