1/20 20. Spelunky (2008) In Spelunky, players travel through procedurally generated caves, making each playthrough completely unique. Initially released on PC, the game was celebrated for its robust, addictive gameplay. Mossmouth, LLC 2/20 19. Sonic Mania (2017) After years of substandard Sonic the Hedgehog sequels, this back-to-basics platformer was hailed as a sparkling return to form for the nippy hedgehog. PagodaWest Games 3/20 18. Shovel Knight (2014) Focusing on a sprightly shovel-wielding medieval knight, this retro-style indie game wowed audiences in 2014. It has since spawned a number of successful follow-ups. Yacht Club Games 4/20 17. Pitfall! (1982) One of the earliest platform games, this Atari 2600 release proved hugely influential. Pitfall Harry is the now-forgotten hero who must make his way through a treacherous jungle environment. Activision 5/20 16. N++ (2015) Fiendishly difficult in parts, this beloved platformer forces players to dodge, jump, climb and bounce their way through smartly designed levels to collect gold coins. 6/20 15. Donkey Kong (1981) A monkey throws barrels, and a man must jump over them. Donkey Kong is the oh-so-simple arcade game that sowed the seeds of a franchise that would make Nintendo £28bn. Nintendo 7/20 14. Super Meat Boy (2010) In this vaguely gross but eminently entertaining platformer, you play as a cube called Meat Boy, who slides around trying to save his girfriend, called Bandage Girl. Team Meat 8/20 13. Braid (2008) Time is your ally in this prestige-swaddled indie game. Players traverse the game's short but sweet story armed with a handful of inventive abilities that let them manipulate the passage of time. Number None 9/20 12. Prince of Persia (1989) A couple of underwhelming sequels (and the dismal Hollywood film adaptation) have made it easy to forget just how impressive the first swashbuckling Prince of Persia game was. Ubisoft 10/20 11. Celeste (2018) Showered with praise upon its release, Celeste lets people play as Madeleine, a troubled girl who has to scale a perilous mountain. Matt Makes Games 11/20 10. Limbo (2010) This stellar indie game tells the story of a boy who travels through a sinister underworld to rescue his sister. Compelling and creepy, Limbo deftly balances platforming, horror and fantasy. Playdead 12/20 9. Mega Man 2 (1988) 1987's Mega Man didn't sell a lot of copies when it was released, but this sequel was a surprise hit – and is now considered a classic of the genre. Capcom 13/20 8. Super Mario 2: Yoshi's Island (1995) Baby Yoda, eat your heart out: this hugely enjoyable game sees the egg-throwing dinosaur Yoshi look after hapless Baby Mario while navigating the perils of classic Mario environments. Nintendo 14/20 7. Castlevania (1986) Simon Belmont faces off with Count Dracula in this seminal and spooky adventure platformer. The game has recently been adapted as a series for Netflix. Konami 15/20 6. Super Mario Odyssey (2017) This slick, endlessly inventive 3D platformer was a big reason for the Nintendo Switch's quick success. A high point for the franchise. Nintendo 16/20 5. Sonic the Hedgehog (1991) With whippet-fast Sonic, Sega created a character to rival Nintendo's mustachioed plumber – and the game brought a frantic, colourful edge to the classic side-scrolling format. Sega 17/20 4. LittleBigPlanet (2008) One of Sony's most prized PlayStation original properties, this cute, eminently enjoyable platformer gave players the chance to create their own experience, with a sea of user-generated content now available. Sony 18/20 3. Mirror's Edge (2008) This platformer was a brilliantly original spin on the genre, combining first-person gameplay, idiosyncratically stylish art design, and an engaging dystopian storyline. Electronic Arts 19/20 2. Super Mario Bros (1985) Almost everything about this game is iconic – from its characters, to its level design, to its music. What's more, it's still a blast to play. Nintendo 20/20 1. Super Mario 64 (1996) The N64 game that revolutionised platforming forever, making the transition from 2D to 3D with astonishing aplomb. 1/20 20.
