Know any platformers with just jumping?

Hey guys, I'm looking for some platformers where your player runs and you just jump. When he bumps into walls he turns back the other way.

There was one on TA not long ago but i've forgotten the name.

Can anybody think of any?

Rayman jungle. Mikey shorts also has only jumps. Both are highly acclaimed.

Mr Crab is the most recent one.

Cheeseman and Chocorun too, although not recent.

I assume you are talking about autorunner platformers with one touch controls for jumping.

Rayman run

Run Roo run

One tap hero

Spunk and moxie

Grudgers

Mr Crab

^Good list.. but Pix N' Love Rush needs moar luvin.

You dont jump here, but it's pretty much one-tap touch control too... Karateka.

These dont have "direction changes" but are pretty much more platformer than other runners and are recommended:

Mega Run
Monsters Inc Run
Zombie Parkour Runner
Vector
Banana Kong
Luna Bears

I love Pix N' Love Rush, I have it on my good ol' PSP. Highly recommended, but it's a pretty hard game. Also, you jump and shoot on it, it's not jump exclusive. As somebody already mentioned, Mikey Shorts and Rayman JR are some good games that technically have jump exclusive action.

Oh yeah... Forgot that you can actually shoot in Pix N love.

I was also thinkin of Monkey Ninja, which was very similar to Run Roo Run, but rememberedit had a second command (tap right) to do various actions, while tapping left was to jump.

Some very good mentions already. I'd like to add:

Bitless.

Be warned, it's pretty difficult.
