Methodical / Slow Action Platformers

I don’t have a solid definition and the title is not precise. Direct control, non-‘cinematic’.

Wonder Boy in Monster Land. This game doesn’t look like anything special at first but it’s super addictive. Structured like Spelunky in some ways (also, maybe Spelunky counts itself?)
