Hocus Pocus, a shareware platformer for PC, used essentially 8-pixel horizontal movements because of the limitations of scrolling on VGA.

Hocus Pocus? Really? I remember playing that but don't remember it having bad scrolling. Of course, I played that a loooong time ago on my 386 PC way before I had any programming knowledge whatsoever... So, yeah, it may have gone unnoticed! =)

Platformer? If yes it must really suck. I don't think I ever saw a commercial platformer working like this. Maybe on reeeeeally limited systems, way more limited than the NES, but even so...

There would be no acceleration at all... and jumping would absolutelly suck.

It does. Just check it out if you want. And yeah, it's a crap NROM game, but still a NES game.
A lot of MSX games has such tiled scrolling as far I know. That include the original version of Gradius, Vampire Killer (Castlevania) and many other celebrated games.
