Platform games have been around for almost as long as the videogame medium has.

There are co-op platformers, RPGs, adventure games, arcade games, shooters, endless runners, and more, all utilizing the same basic 2D side-scrolling format created by the early arcade pioneers like Donkey Kong, Mario Bros, and Bubble Bobble. 

We love platformers, and Gamecamp.gg is just about the best place to find them.

In case you’ve never heard of it, this ingenious online marketplace lets you buy unwanted activation keys from other gamers for a fraction of their RRP. It’s like eBay, but for digital media. 

You’ll find every platform game under the sun on Gamecamp.gg. Here are five of our favorites that you can find on the mobile optimised platform.

Hollow Knight

Hollow Knight is a bonafide modern classic with a haunting, virtually monochrome aesthetic. It sees you playing as a weird insectoid knight attempting to traverse some profoundly hostile subterranean environments.

Cuphead

Cuphead plays like platformers of yore, and looks like cartoons of even more distant yore. Developer Studio MDHR has nailed the look and feel of early cartoons with unnerving accuracy. Cuphead’s presentation is its ace card, but it’s a lot of fun too. 

Dead Cells

Dead Cells has a lot in common with Hollow Knight, in that it’s a “roguevania” – that is, a roguelike with metroidvania elements. But it couldn’t be more different in execution, with a flowing, dynamic style and a truly macabre dungeon aesthetic. 

Rayman Legends

Rayman Legends is the most conventional platformer on this list, showcasing Ubisoft Montpelier’s knack for creating vibrant cartoon worlds and filling them with fun stuff to do. 

Unravel

Unravel is a perfect example of couch co-op. It sees two players each controlling a little creature made out of yarn. The twist? They’re attached to one another, meaning both players need to work together to solve puzzles and navigate the stages.
