Favourite Platformer?

Hey Guys,

I'm looking into getting a platformer. Not really specific to any kind, but I just want one that is, in your opinion, fun, has decent replay, and can hold your attention lol.

I tried the lite version of Ignite, and it seemed fun. I am thinking about purchasing the full version, but before I do, I wanted to see if there was anything else. Preferable a little more "Mario" oriented I guess you can say lol (Power-ups and what not). Thanks in advance for any suggestions! Price isnt really an issue, and I dont really care about graphics TOO much, as long as the game is fun as hell.

I've been wondering the same thing, I recently got Brave Dwarves and its a pretty darn good game. Although I haven't been able to play much, sucked into The Quest expansion at the moment.

+1 for Archibald's Adventures.
I just bought "Jack or 100 Ways to Barbecue" which looks nice (and retro! ), but I haven't got too much spare time to play it more than few minutes so can't really say more about it.

Cheers,

The dev just yesterday issued an update for Brave Dwarves, and the controls have been updated.
