This is a good Metroidygar.
Fun Fact: The genre is called "Metroidygar" because Rygar added RPG elements.

Rygar isnt really a metroidvania, the stages are still pretty linear and the top view land is more of a hub world, most of it is also jank.

Jeremy Parish himself called Rygar the "first NES metroidygar".

Rygar is a non-linear platformer-adventure where you acquire new abilities to reach new areas.

Metroidvania = Metroid + Castlevania, the later referring to the RPG elements brought by SotN

If it doesn't have RPG elements, it's not a Metroidvania, it's just a Metroid. Metroid is not a Metroidvania, it's a Metroid.

Calling Metroid-likes "Metroidvania" is as incorrect as calling House of the Dead or Parasite Eve "survival horror", but that's also a thing.

SMB is less linear than Rygar. Don't get me wrong. I love Rygar (except the music in Dorago's Palace), but claiming it's anything but linear is just silly.

If one of the different music tracks is Dorago's Palace, that might fix the only bad thing about the game.

Wonder Boy the Dragon's Trap created every mechanic that is supposed to special in SotN.

Apart from it's graphics SotN is utterly unremarkable in gaming history and is popular for hipster reasons.

Once you get the pulley+crossbow, can't you choose between three areas to go?
