I want a 2D platforming game (like Super Mario Bros) but where you go through the levels and the character has a variety of weapons to use such as guns and things like that.

I've been thinking, a game like this made by Halfbrick featuring Barry Steakfries would be so awesome :P

But anyways, anyone know a game similar to this?

There is a more adventure based shooting game coming out by Halfbrick.

Neither of those really appeal to quite what I want :l I might consider Mega Man 2 if it goes on sale again.

Well, there's Bionic Surfer.




The premise is goofy (though actually explained within the game), the animation is stiff, controls are ugly, but for a long time this was one of my favorite action games on the platform. Tons of weapons (including a gravity gun like in HL2), interesting level designs, cool looking monsters, huge bosses, and an actual story (sort of) to pull it all together.

It hasn't been updated in a while, so it might be a good idea to try out the lite to make sure it still works.
