Axiom Verge is a fantastic experience, to be honest I'm not feeling the sequel as much but still a fine game.

I would've been all over this if I didn't have 1/2 the games that were on the list.

I've got the feeling some metroidvanias are much more difficult than others.
I like the Shantae series very much, Blade Kitten and Indivisible were good.
Are these Humblebundle games in kind of difficulty similar to my games?
I just don't like my metroidvanias too challenging.
