Top DS Platform Games of All Time
Welcome to VideoGamer.com's top platform games of All Time, a list of the best videogames, generated by editorial reviews and popularity on the site. Here's a look at our favourites...
Kirby Super Star on the SNES is considered the best Kirby game ever made by aficionados, so the fact that this remake adds a few bells and whistles should ensure smiles all round.
Super Mario 64 DS is the gaming equivalent of Lucas's ham-fisted Star Wars special editions: fantastic entertainment, to be sure, but something of a cash-in all the same.
If you own a DS and fancy some traditional Sonic magic, Sonic Rush should fit the bill nicely. The best pure platformer on the DS is from Sega; who'd have thought it?
Yoshi's Island DS is a thoroughly enjoyable platformer, but it's not going to make the same impact as its illustrious predecessor.
At £30 it's a tad expensive for the play-time you get, but if you're new to the series on DS or love all things Sonic, we heartily recommend it. One of the best games on the system.
Considering the majority of licensed titles for kids fail to offer even a glimmer of originality, Drawn to Life: SpongeBob SquarePants Edition comes highly recommended.
A bit more bang for your buck would have been great, but retro gaming still doesn't get much better than this.
New Super Mario Bros. treads the retro platformer line beautifully, adding just enough originality and imagination to the mix.
Mario Vs. Donkey Kong 2 is a brilliant game, and one that is an absolute must for all DS owners. Quite simply: if you've got a DS, get this!
Jungle Climber is a DS title that's going to keep handheld owners hooked for quite some time to come. This is though, another definite winner from the big N.
