Any of these like Slayin but not limited to one screen? I really like one-screen games, but adding a sense of travel to those Slayin mechanics would make a pleasant change.

Thanks. I realised what I was describing would prob be more like a lame "Go right, always right" platformer/side-scroller compared to the craziness of Groundskeeper 2/spell sword etc. Is lvln really as much of a slow-motion Slayin clone as the reviews say? The idea of not restarting from the beginning every time is a big sell!
