Dandara: Trials of Fear Edition
The games in this list span the spectrum from straight-up metroidvanias like Castlevania: Symphony of the Night to games that put the basic ingredients of the metroidvania genre to work in new and interesting ways, such as the awesome Reventure and the self-professed “roguevania” Dead Cells.
What they all have in common, though, is being great.
The multiple award-winning Dandara: Trials of Fear Edition is an absolute masterclass in metroidvania game design. Originally released in 2018, this gorgeous game sees you exploring a huge, maze-like environment via an innovative movement mechanic that involves jumping from point to point, gravity be damned. It’s available on every platform, but mobile is one of the best thanks to some smartly conceived and slickly executed touch controls.
A super-tricky, surprisingly massive adventure that’s presented with the color palette of a Spectrum game. VVVVVV is a wonder, deep and tricksy in all the right ways. It was deleted from the Play Store for a while, but now it’s back in all its splendor and it’s well worth checking out if you haven’t played it before.

While the Android port of Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night was less than ideal at launch due to some shaky controller support, improvements are on the way. And they’re worth waiting for because this marvellous metroidvania boasts an enviable heritage. It was made by ArtPlay, the studio founded by Koji Igarashi, who worked for Konami on the Castlevania series. In fact, with your eyes half-closed you could mistake this gothic adventure for its spiritual predecessor.
Strictly speaking, Dead Cells is technically a “roguevania”, but only because developer Motion Twin did such an amazing job with the game that the gaming community has collectively agreed to let the studio coin new words. This gripping, endlessly replayable metroidvania contains roguelike elements, in that each run through is different and each one results in death. While you’re alive, though, you’ll occupy hosts, acquire skills, access new areas, and generally have a swell time.
Robot Wants Kitty has been around for nearly ten years, and it’s still one of our favorite metroidvanias on mobile. Based on a Flash game of the same name, Robot Wants Kitty sees you collecting kitties. You start with an unbelievably limited range of movements and skills, but as you play you upgrade your abilities and acquire new ones, in turn increasing your cat-collecting prowess until your neurons are bursting with pleasure.
