^LOL... that was my post, but i dont consider most of them platformers simply becuase they only have one floor with pitfalls and different heights.

Here are what i think are platformer/runner hybrids:
Zombie Parkour Runner
Dont Run With A Plasma Sword
Pix N Love Rush
One-Tap Hero
Rayman Jungle Run

Not even sure if Polara is a platformer, but jumping into platforms you need to change colors to land into just might be.

I added They Need to be Fed 2, Kid Tripp, and Mikey Hooks.

Are there any other notable Platformer Releases from this year that I should add?

Also, does anyone know what happened to Pizza Boy, one of the greatest iOS platformers? - It disappeared from the Cloud...

Been through the thread and I don't think I saw Mutant Mudds mentioned; easily my favourite platformer last year.

I think Spunk and Moxie could be added to the auto-runner platformer.

Lostwinds 1 and 2?

Edit: Saw that Lostwinds 1 and 2 are already on the list.

How about:

Jazz: Trump's Journey
Angle Isle

Vulture island by donut games is a nice puzzle platformer.
