    Gambia, The
    thats right, I'm just saying some things and you tell me if you remember anything that might fit
    (basically, it can be nds, nes or gb/c)

    I kinda feel like Jump N Run right now, played too much rpg and tactic rpg so I need something more classic


    Preferably 2d sidescrolling
    I'd like to be able to punch people... if you cant punch, swords would be ok too
    I kinda want my game to have jump kicks too, those are cool
    I want to run while holding the B button
    Double Jumps are optional
    Ability Upgrades would be fun, but don't have to be there
    No Mario please
    Also no Castlevania, finished those already
    Can be Japanese, but only if theres not much story

    Thats all, can you help me please?

    When I saw the title, I immediately thought of Contra or Ninja Gaiden, but then, I saw your criteria. So, I can't help you. Maybe the movie based or (shovelware) ones. There are tons of shovelware like that.

    Does Contra work?
    If so Contra 4.

    Also get your nes emulator going. There's tons that fit your criteria (I think).

    Check out Penguin no Mondai: Saikyou Penguin Densetsu! and its sequel, Penguin no Mondai: Tenkuu no Senshi
    They're in Japanese, but from what I've played it doesn't really matter.

    If you can do GBA,

    Comix Zone
    Ninja Cop
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 1/2
    Blackthorne (no punching/kicking but you can run and gun)
    Anything batman (Begins/Vengence/Rise of Sin Tzu)
    Justice League Heros - The Flash (super fast running and punching)

    NES:
    Kung-Fu
    Batman?

    1st off, 2D or 3D where "Jumping" plays a big part in the game is called a Platformer.


    If you like, I can give you a link to a custom-made level designed by me if you feel like playing one more level on New Super Mario Bros. Right now, I only have 25% of the whole level, but it is made up of one complete screen, and includes 3 Star Coins, A start, and an exit. In a speed run, you can finish it less than 100 seconds. But if you want to find the secret entrance to another area (Area currently being developed but the way to get to it is a brainteaser) and collect all 3 star coins, you're going to have to explore the entire screen, preferably without cheats. Its not "Visually satsisfying" like a Nintendo level, but I did manage to make a thinking based level while keeping the potential of getting "Stuck" only happens once or twice (Big Mushrooms destroy essential things.

    ANYWAYS, if that doesn't interest you, fortunately I have some platforming under my belt. so I can give you other titles than dated NES games :/

    I'm going to list platformers for the hell of it. I'm disregarding your list.

    "I'd like to be able to punch people... if you cant punch, swords would be ok too
    I kinda want my game to have jump kicks too, those are cool" is a fucking dated design, so you're not going to find such a thing unless you're only interested in emulated games. So I'm taking what you want and throwing it out, and just going to go ahead and list a few platformers that are worth a brief look.
    GBA:

    Ninja-5-0.
    Any Metroid.
    Klonoa 1 and 2 (IMO, Must Haves)

    NDS:

    Legend of Starfy (For some reason some people love this game, Its pretty boring to me)
    Henry Hatsworth and the Puzzling Adventure.
    Prince of Persia (The one with ugly artwork.newer one)
    Sonic Rush and Rush Adventure
    Super Princess Peach
    Viewtiful Joe
    Yoshi's Island 2
    Giana Sisters DS
    Yatterman DS 1&2
    Koisuru Purin Koi wa Daibouken Dr Kanmi no Yabou

    And if you love recycled crap, Any Megaman on GBA or DS with "Z" in the title.

    What gamer in their right mind would suggest a game by Pizzahut?
    Even when I was 4 years old, I remember how awful that game was.

    Surprised no one mentioned Legend of Kage 2, it's 2d, all running, jumping, using a katana and throwing shurikens, also collecting orbs to give yourself special powers and racking up big combos.

    I didn't mention N+ or Legend of Kage because #1 N+ is a crappy DS game, even though its a great flash game. So I thought it wasntt appropriate. #2 Legend of Kage sucked. Thats a fact. This isn't open for discussion.

    Um, no one asked you why you didn't mention it. Your post or opinion isn't the only one that matters you know.
