    Mine are very similar, not very modular or completely reusable outside whatever project it's in.

    I have another confession:
    I think I like modern indies that are inspired by classics a lot more than the classics...
    Recently I tried to get into:
    -metal slug
    -contra
    -castlevania:SOTN
    -megaman
    -super metroid

    (bear in mind that I never had a console as kid, so I have no strong nostalgic feeling for any of those games)
    And honestly those game don't keep me interested for more than 30 minutes.
    But I love all those retro inspired indies:)

    Sounds like blasphemy IMO.

    Let's be honest the main problem with those older games is difficulty curve, the original classics are often way too hard for the casual player.

    But in terms of atmosphere, many of these newer games just cannot hold a candle.

    Nah it's not that I like they are easier or more casual games by definition.
    For example nightmare King grim (boss that is very inspired by castlevania's Dracula) in hollow knight was much harder than anything I encountered in SOTN.

    I think it's just that the new games took what made those old games great, and cut off the stuff that wasn't as good.
    And those "not so good" parts are most obvious when you return to those games AFTER playing the new ones, and without the nostalgia goggles to blind you.

    SOTN is notoriously easy and not a good example in this situation.

    I am curious about what problems you had enjoying Super Metroid, and what newer games of its kind you think do better. My main passion is 16 bit era action games, but I think Super Metroid stands out as being a virtually perfect game, and an unforgettable experience for a first time player.

    In contrast, I played Axiom Verge and was very excited about it. Heavily Super Metroid influenced, interesting setting, art, music etc. However I lost interest far quicker than I'd have predicted. Couldn't put my finger on one particular reason, but it just entirely failed to captivate me, whereas with Super Metroid I simply couldn't put the controller down.
