My brother Nathan wanted to record a podcast with me on our favorite 3-D platformers, so before I do that, I wanted to talk about my favorite 2-D platformers, so that’s just what my other brother Jeff and I did in this episode of The Pizza Pixel Podcast.  Please click on the link and give it a listen if you can.  Thanks.

When it comes to 2-D platformers, if I had to do a top 5, they'd all be Metroid and Mario games, with Super Metroid coming out on top. My favorite series after those would be Castlevania. 

One unusual platformer I enjoyed was Mischief Makers on the N64. I hope they consider putting that on Nintendo Switch Online.

Yeah I rented Mischief Makers once.  It was fun, even if I did have the same problems with it as I did other Treasure games.

The N64 was really lacking in 2-D platformers.  The only ones I can think of off the top of my head are Yoshi's Story, Mischief Makers, Kirby 64, and Goemon's Great Adventure.  I hate that I missed out on that last game.  It came out when I was just graduating college so I was still poor and couldn't afford to buy it, and it was also really rare, even back then!
