also known as (for better, or worse): FIXME Castleroid, Metrovania

The name 'Metroidvania' originates from the beginning of the Igavania era of the Castlevania series, when the games seemingly took inspiration from the Metroid series, and became more exploration-based. The term has since become a (misappropriated, and ugly) common descriptor of any game in that style: a 2-D platform game with adventure game elements (a genre well established by many games preceding Symphony of the Night).
