Favorite Platformer(s)

Made this as a thread specifically for deiscussing past, present, and future platformers on iOS!

A couple of my favorites:
Lumi
Terra Noctis
League of Evil
Mos Speedrun
Bit-1

Looking Forward too:
Paper Monsters
Star Marine: Infinite Ammo
Jazz: Jump's Journey
Heroki

I'm going to update my post later to categorize later. I have a ton of platformers and I kinda like em' all.

There are a handful of threads on this, but every time I learn about some new game. Lumi for e.g.

Anyways, my top 10, in order, are

1. Soosiz
2. Gears (Ball rolling platformer)
3. 1-bit Ninja
4. Robot wants Kitty
5. League of Evil
6. Babylonian Twins
7. Edge/ Edge Extended
8. Mos Speedrun
9. Bounce 1 & 2
10. Gravity Runner


Yet to play:
Terra Noctis, Evertales, Emberwind, Mystery Ball, Gianna Sisters

Note:
I don't call endless runners platformers, but if there is a level based ending, like Mirror's Edge, i'd call it a platformer.

Anyways, I don't think there are any hidden gems in my list. They are all great to own if you like platformers though

Some very popular platformers from around 2009:

-Rolando series
-Toybot series
-Spybot

Started it all off for platformers for me on the iOS.

LOLavi and Spidey have a pretty solid list of some favorites. I still need to get LostWinds one of these days.

More obvious but good ones to throw in there:
Shantae
Crazy Hedgy (whats with all the average reviews online)
Sonic CD (and some bits of 4)

Terra Noctis, Robot wants Kitty and League of evil all kick ass too.

Yeah the latest thread I could find was Best platformers. I thought I would create a fres thread for favorite platformers because there are so many. Honestly, my best/favorite platformer switches each time I open up a different game...lol. For instance Lumi and Terra Noctis are awesome, but I like them for different reasons.

Anyways, I made this thread more for general platformer discussion, and I'm making it a task of mine to keep it rightfully updated!

There's definitely been a wave of good ones as of late, ranging from Sonic CD to Crazy Hedgy. Great time for platformer fans.

Most definitely! I left a lot out so I could categorize my list properly. I'm still not sure how I want to arrange things though.
