Games similar to Subterrania

I always found this hybrid MD/GEN shump-platformer to be challenging.. A bit too challenging at times. What similar games utilise the same concept?

Never played it, but based on the genre styles, Thexder would be my best guess.

Ah yes I knew Thexder back when it gave me nightmares on the MSX. :lol:

Good question.

Solar Jetman is the only game I can think of that does essentially the same thing as Sub-Terrania and it's even harder.

I just got Galak-Z recently and it made me think a bit about Sub-Terrania in that it's a 360 degree shooter where you travel through caverns. It doesn't have the downward gravity but the ship retains momentum like in Asteroids.

Thexder I think is also pretty hard. Although the port I played most of was particularly poorly balanced I think.

Hero Core has a little Metroidvania to it, and it's also a really great game. Seriously, give it a shot.

Affordable Space Adventures (Wii U) actually plays pretty similarly, but it is a charming puzzle game. I recommend it very, very highly.

Thanks for the suggestions. Giantbomb lists Pixeljunk Shooter as a similar game, and even though I have both games I still haven't played either. *checks Youtube footage*

My random brain remembered a random game for this old topic.

Cybernoid is pretty similar to Subterrania. Actually I'm willing to bet Subterrania took a lot of inspiration from it. Cybernoid was released on a ton of platforms, including ZX Spectrum, Atari ST, Amstrad CPC, C64, NES, Amiga, and Virtual Console.

And it has a sequel:
