Let's Talk About 2D Android Games
« on: August 17, 2016, 07:59:38 pm »
There are Android games topic in General, but they seem to be dead now, so i decided to make one here.

I would like to gather the list of 2D action-platformer, shmups etc. android games here, which look and play similar to our beloved 16 bit retro games, and they have button mapping support as well.

Guys, which are your 2D retro-style android games you play on your GPD/JXD... now?

My list:

Sword of Xolan - pixelated action platformer, great retro graphics, auto button mapping, good gameplay
Shovel Knight -  beautiful graphics and music, auto button mapping
Bloo Kid 2 - Super Mario style retro graphics and gameplay, cool music too
Giana Sisters - HD graphics, nice levels, similar gameplay to the Nintendo DS version
Super Mustache -  pixelated action platformer
Gunslugs 2 - pixelated Metal Slug style run and gun game, cool music too.

Ducktales Remastered- Gamepad Support  (free on amazon nderground)
Castle of Illusion: Gamepad support (free on amazon underground)
Cordy 1 and 2: Gamepad Support

Not exactly 2d retro games, but good 2d or 2.5D platform games.

Has anyone got Castle of Illusion to work on GPD XD? The android play store version only gives a black screen. I heard the happy chick version works but I blew that away when Legacy ROM was loaded

You can use gltools and use tegra 3 profile and the game will run

Fortunately i didn't had to install CrapChick. GLTools did the trick. Thanks!
