I can't actually beat Strider... Was willing to power through Shadow of the Ninja, though. Such a good little game...

Osman is pretty much exactly Strider but with feet instead of swords. Arcade only though so will need MAMEing.

I believe the creator was responsible for the 4 players co-op Moon Diver on PS360. It is that, essentially a co-op Strider. I recall it being bland environmentally, and progression required grinding.

The 2D combat-based take on The Stanley Parable “Icey” has very mobile combat and at times feels like Strider 2. Actually, it’s the only game I can recall since Strider 2 that scratches that itch left by Hiryu’s PS1 outing. Set the game to hard or hell difficulty and go nuts.

Bloodrayne Betrayal at times to me feels very Strider-like. The combat is almost memorization-based, but it has that parkour feeling that I get from the Strider games when I nail a run.
