Content creators are now hard at work putting together their top 10 lists for 2020, with a few of them making some dedicated Metroidvania lists. These are a few that we came across over the past week:

Time stop enemies to throw knives at them, slow down traps to sneak past them, or even walk on frozen water to progress through the game.
