Metroid style games

I'm looking for any metroid style games. Can you give me any suggestions?

There are several "metroidvania-likes" in the App Store, but the one I think comes closest is Vergence. The gameplay is slower (intentionally so), but it has many of the other hallmarks of the genre, including a large world that opens up as you gain new abilities.

Did a quick search myself. Here's a quick list to get things started:


Ark of Sinners
Grokion (pulled I think but keep an eye out for it)
J-Werewolf (Originally called "Mystery of the Japanese Werewolf")
Megatroid
Dark Incursion
Shantae: Risky's Revenge
Lemegeton
Robot Wants Kitty
The Deep
