Looking for a killer platformer

Hi all!

So, I fell in love with Bounce On 1 and Soosiz and I have not found a platformer as good as them since and I would really like one.

I guess I liked that they were fun and hard, long and very entertaining.

I've played the following

Almighty Mr. Ice
Babylon Twins (liked this one too)
Bounce On 2
Castle of Magic
Chop, Chop everything
Domino Adventures
Edge and the new edge (which is actually a great game)
Elemental Rage
Giana's Sister
Gravbot
Grakion
Hooga
Hook Champ
League of Evil (like this one)
Pizza Boy
Plushed
Rolando 1 and 2 (which I loved)
Sonic
Spybot
Super Adventure world
Undead Ocean
Wheelers Treasure

Any suggestions. I know Bounce on 1 and Soosiz are two of the best platforms, but just hoping there are others.

Thanks

Hoggy
Seriously, go get it right now.

I don't see Mos Speedrun on your list either (Lite)

Some other decent ones:
Meganoid
To-fu: The Trials of Chi

That last one isn't a traditional platformer, strictly speaking, but it's pretty good.

Oh, I played Hoggy, but not Mos Speedrun. I'll try that. Thanks! Wish they would make Soosiz 2 or BO3.

Definitely, definitely this one. Maybe it's because this was one of the first games I ever bought but I always loved it.

Dude. Get Chocorun for SURE. Most hardcore platformer I've played in a while. The controls are different, but work wonderfully. So here's my must-have list:

Chocorun
Pizza Boy
Grokion
Miss Claire Garden
Frogatto
Blookid

Currently Enjoying: BUG HEROES 2

You already mentioned Giana Sisters, so... Wizzley Presto and the Vampire's Tomb. It's not so much a platformer as a Dizzy-style adventure game with platforming elements, but it looks great and plays well enough.

I was disappointed in the controls of this one. You found them ok? Maybe I should give it another go.
