Any Upcomming Platformers worth keeping aneye on?

I have been waiting for LOE + LOE2 Level Editor for so long that I finally gave up a few months ago and have gone back to downloaded every platformer that has hit the app store. However, none of them still really get there for me like LOE + LOE2 did.

Any upcoming platformers I should keep my eye on that can deliver the same that LOE + LOE2 did. Anyone have any further info in the LOE + LOE2 level editor? (Hopefully with a level share).

I am looking forward to the day when I can download some level packs from people who are way more talented at creating them than myself

Until then, hopefully something comes along that can bridge the gap...

In search for the holy grail of iOS platformers. Combine League of Evil 1, 2 & 3, + Mikey Shorts, 1-Bit Ninja (full movement), Super Mario Bros, add level editor with level share and large adventurous levels!

One of the best platformers coming is Wimp. It is an action puzzle platformer, and it is a lot of fun. I'm participating in the beta test now, and it is probably the best platform game on Ios along with Mikey Shorts.

I think it is coming out around the end of the month, keep an eye on it. Fantastic game!

Thanks for the info! Ill be keeping an eye out for both of those. Just subscribed to the Wimp thread and will do the same for Rayman so I can know when they are getting released.

Just made a few levels for labyrinth 2. Love they way they do level share. Hope that LOE has a level share ability.

I'm really looking forward to Wimp and The Other Brothers. Especially Other Brothas because I'm already playing Wimp

Think its more like an endless runner though than a traditional platformer sadly.

Another vote for Polyroll, his last game (Clash Force) was brilliant, from the trailer Polyroll looks just as good if not better.

Kid Vector was a nice vector style platformer.
