Hey guys,

Does anyone know any good 2D games? I mean, not the old school 2D games, but 2D games developed with new technologies (more like 2d gameplay). Something like Trine (which I absolutely loved btw :D). Or maybe like Shadow Complex (for xbox). But I’d like only titles for PC :D. I’ve been searching like crazy, on GameSpot, YouTube etc, but can’t find any decent games of the genre (I just bought Bionic Commando Rearmed, it was the closest thing I found). I really hate thr fact that eveyone is switching to 3D. 3D games are awesome, but I personally love 2D gameplay as well. And I really miss it :D

If you haven’t played yet, try Braid. Its one of the best 2D side-scrolling game I’ve ever played both among old ones and the new ones. Here is the gamespot link:

Here is the link for the 360 version game review:

And you can buy it on Steam or at least can play the demo first for free!

Rocket Knight is the hardest game I’ve ever played. It becomes stupidly hard towards the end, and the fact that you only get 3 lives is terrible. First 7-8 levels are really fun, but after that it just gets frustrating. I mean, I really enjoy a good challenge, but this is ridiculous :D
