Best Platformer

I mainly have my sights set on Rolando 2 or Soosiz, but feel free to suggest (and please support the advantages) others. If you could list pros and cons for the apps, it would be extremely helpful! THanks.

*I'm ignoring 3d-ish platformers (Assassin's Creed, Dungeon Hunter, AVATAR, etc.)

I have all of the games in the poll, but I have to say that my all time favorite platformer is Rolando 2. Everything about it is great- from it's uniqueness to it's visuals.

Spider. It's just so unique and new, it's hard to refuse. If it's fun, you seek, the truth I doth speak. If it's what you desire, take it, my sire. Hehe, erm, yeah. Spider.

I think you can get the first level or two of Rolando 2 for free and then pay for the remaining levels through DLC if you want. I'm pretty sure buying the full game this way amounts to the same cost as paying for it all at once... but entirely positive you should try the free version at least and i think a couple more of these games have lite versions (Rolando 1, and Bounce On). I'd pick Soosiz out of this list.

edit: or Hook Champ or Spider lol

Lol I think the exact opposite as you.
I loved Spider, hated Rolando, thought Soosiz was better than Rolando but still sucks, and wasn't interested in Hook Champ due to the primitive graphics.

I've tried all but bounce on and my vote is SOOSIZ. Especially if it's still on sale.

I'm pretty sure there are lites to try for the majority of those titles so you can see for yourself.
