I've played loads of them. You're right - it isn't very non-linear as there's still a set beginning and a set end. But it's a far cry from "'left-to-right' Mario style".

Quality has nothing to do with structure. I think that Zool 2 is mediocre and it's loaded with secret areas and goodies to collect - which is the structure of most 16-bit console platformers. Even Awesome Possum, one of the worst games ever, had that structure.
