OK I thought it would be easier to make a topic then search through the app store randomly and the forum. Anyway im looking for a good platformer. Im thinking of Castle of Magic at the moment but are there other good ones, or hidden gems etc...

You could probably consider Toki Tori a platformer, and it is only $.99. Good game.

I think toki tori is more of a puzzle game but it's still a good buy.

Castle of Magic
Archibalds Adventure
Bounce On
Rolando 1 & 2
Toki Tori

I've played all but CoM and Rolando 2. Archibalds has over 150 levels of good size and excellent quality. It's by far my favorite. It's not great in the graphics department though. Once you beat a level, there's no need to re-play it.

Bounce On features nearly 50-60 levels. This game is, in my opinion, the most difficult to obtain all the 'medals' for each level. Some of the levels requre a decent amount of skill to pass as well.

Rolando 1 is the most feature-rich game of the lot, sporting 40+ creatively designed levels and intuitive gameplay. If you're looking towards this, you should get R2 instead, as I hear it's a great sequel.

Toki Tori is the best looking platformer of the lot (remember, I'm not comparing Com), it features some 80 levels including hard levels that are sure to make you think before you move. I would'nt call this game an adventure platformer though, more a puzzle game that challenges you to think before you move.
