* ''VideoGame/RainWorld'' boasts having over a thousand rooms to explore, but breaks away from the formula due to how fragile the Slugcat is and the time limit of every cycle.

* Most of the ''Franchise/{{Metroid}}'' games of course. Some people don't consider the 3D titles (the ''VideoGame/MetroidPrimeTrilogy'' sub-series and ''VideoGame/MetroidOtherM'') to count, but even those games play out the same, with the main difference being that the environments are arranged in 3 dimensions rather than 2. The clear exceptions are ''VideoGame/MetroidPrimeHunters'', more of a first-person shooter with a few exploration elements, ''VideoGame/MetroidPrimePinball'', a pinball game, and ''VideoGame/MetroidPrimeFederationForce'' is a co-op FPS.
** Recently, a VideoGame/Metroid2ReturnOfSamus [[VideoGameRemake remake]] called ''VideoGame/MetroidSamusReturns'' was announced, and fits this trope, but also in TwoAndAHalfD.

* ''VideoGame/{{Pitfall}} II: Lost Caverns'' was a precursor to the genre, as well as sequels ''Super Pitfall'' and ''[[VideoGame/PitfallTheLostExpedition Pitfall: The Lost Expedition/The Big Adventure]]''. Another precursor was ''VideoGame/MontezumasRevenge'', where the game world is a bit small, but with familiar gameplay elements.

** The fan-made ''VideoGame/SonicChronoAdventure'' has two ring-shaped maps to be explored and abilities that transform Sonic. The developer used the term "Metronic" when talking about it, not feeling it had much influence from ''Castlevania''.
