This is a very interesting thread for me as we are also releasing our platform game in the new year.
The thing that I would like to know though is more with regards to the popularity of the genre. Are platform games as popular as they were on 8 & 16 bits? For me - platformers are probably one of my favourite genres.
But what are the sales figures like for IOS/Android based platformers? Do lots of people download them?
Have you seen any stats or figures for any of the games mentioned in this thread?
