Desperately need platformer suggestions...

Desperately need platformer suggestions...

To give a sense of the kinds of games I like... here are my recent favorites...

1) Rayman Jungle Run
2) Penumbear
3) Rolando
4) Mikey Shorts

So... generally platformers with a need to "get" all of something. Don't really like Sonic or the like. Achievements is a plus.

Anyone have some good new or old suggestions that are similar to the ones I listed above?

Definitely check out Soosiz if you haven't already.

Everyone's favorite chamber of death, doom and decomposition.

I haven't. Looks great... will download it now.


Looking for a whole bunch of suggestions, so if anyone has more... fire away.

Rolando 2

Edge/Edge Extended (a different kind of platformer, but still great)

Storm in a Teacup

Beyond Ynth (a much more puzzley platformer)

Meganoid 1 & 2
Kung Fu Rabbit
League of Evil 1 & 2
Random Heroes 1 & 2
Cordy 1 & 2
Mutant Mudds
Paper Monsters
Super Skyland

If you want larger maps and exploration, I highly recommend Swordigo and Ark of Sinners.

Guys, you forgot to mention:

They Need To Be Fed 1 and 2

But if you have to pick just one, the sequel will be my suggestion. Don't miss it.

Terra Noctis is my favourite. It crashes frequently, never during a level but once complete and entering the next. It's worth putting up with in my opinion.

Supercow is another favourite. Beautiful graphics, brilliant game play with things to collect and secret bits to find in each level.

Incredible Jack is along the same lines as Supercow, less levels but still brilliant.

Frogatto Is yet another exploration based platformer with good reviews. Haven't done much on that yet, KOTOR and WH came out soon after purchase.

Giana Sisters is also good fun to play and quite long.

I've been through loads of them and those are the best I've found so far. Always looking for more though

Here is an old platformer list with lots of suggestions. It needs some love but you may find some good things.

I second Wimp: Who Stole my Pants and Swordigo. Those are both excellent.

Also, Bobbing. It has a decent sized free version for you to try out. It's an auto-runner, but like Rayman it's one with quite puzzley levels where you have to work out the route through the level that will get you 100%. And it's excellent.
