During the good old days, or should we say the 8-bit/16-bit era, we always enjoy the side scrolling action games, may it be pure mindless button mashing action or with a mix of platforming. Those games where you can play it alone or tag a friend along to join the mayhem. Now we are at the era where we see first person and third person shooters with beautiful graphics, and just because we are now in that era doesn’t mean that we can’t enjoy the classic side scrolling games.

Because there are reasons for you right now to enjoy it as some game companies are now releasing classics and new games that feature intense side scrolling action, be it in glorious 3D graphics or beautifully drawn 2D sprites, online or local co-op. The following games are scheduled to release this year or were recently released, ready your calendars and wallets as you will be enjoying good old side scrolling brawls.
