Indeed they are. In fact, Frogatto is the only one I'm unfamiliar with, so I'll have to give that a go shortly.

Best platformers

I'm just wondering if anyone knows of any decent exploration platformers, perhaps a bit like VVVVVV or maybe the old Monty Mole games? Or even like the wonderful free game Redder?

This trend of short-burst platformers (League of Evil etc.) ain't really doin' it for me.

I'm not after Metroidvania style games (though I tremendously enjoy those as well).

Thanks for any help.

Surprised no one mentioned Bubble Pig yet, there are a lot of secrets, you can make combos while collecting stuff, and more
