Top Platform Games of 2010
Welcome to VideoGamer.com's top platform games of 2010, a list of the best videogames, generated by editorial reviews and popularity on the site. Here's a look at our favourites...
This iteration of the hedgehog with attitude feels slow, clunky and stuck wading through tedious environment after tedious environment.
Sonic 4 does a fantastic job of recreating the retro Sonic experience that defined many a childhood, but ironically this could be considered its biggest shortcoming.
Ivy is charming and understated; a platform game that deserves credit simply for doing something new with an old formula.
MM10 is a glorious return to the hay-day of 8-bit gaming; a fantastic challenge built on the back of some of the most refined mechanics the genre has ever seen.
A bit more bang for your buck would have been great, but retro gaming still doesn't get much better than this.
Retro Studios has managed to make a game that feels new and old at the same time, appealing to young blood and cynical old-timers who've seen it all before.
It might be a tad overpriced at £24.99 for a ROM dump of four SNES games, but Nintendo's ever-loyal fans won't find it hard to justify dropping the cash regardless.
Doritos Crash Course is a free game, but it's one of the most fun and addictive games available on XBLA and playable by almost anyone.
Super Meat Boy is bright, huge, colourful, funny and painfully annoying.
Even though this is a direct sequel, Nintendo has once again made Mario's planetoid adventures feel remarkably fresh and, somehow, even more entertaining than those in the original.
