Dan the man
It’s a great retro-style action platformer and a really impressive level of gameplay. The game is developed by Halfbrick Studios –the same of the famous Fruit Ninja- and has just received an update recently with new levels of play.
Sword of Sholan
The Pixel-Art is in his veins. A beautiful game with a great variety of enemies and very careful designs, final bosses and, in short, a combat platform created with great care. It has an arc of difficulty that increases appropriately through the 30 levels of the game. Free and compatible with gamepads.
Apple Knight – Platform Games
This is a game that was released in 2019, although I just discovered it recently and it seems to me a simply fabulous title. Here we find a “platforms and action” type proposal where we control a knight in a 2D side scrolling scenario with pixel art graphics.
Super mario run
The first and only Mario to date on Android that came loaded with controversy: the first 4 levels are free, having to pay 10.99 euros to unlock the rest of the game. It is a high price, which does not mean that it is a very fun game, with very good graphics, multiplayer mode and simple mechanics but with many nuances.
Ubisoft’s mascot game is probably the best example of what Nintendo’s Mario Run could have been, and it wasn’t. As in the game of the plumber with a mustache, we are faced with a platform run and jump, but in this case free, and can even deactivate in-game purchases from the game settings.
OCO – A twist on the genre
OCO is a different platform game. It is operated with one hand in a circular environment that rotates continuously and our goal is to collect all the yellow dots that appear on the screen. The highlight of this game is that it has a minimalist design and a soundtrack that make the gameplay a relaxing and beautiful experience. A not well known title but with a lot of potential.
It offers us a runner-type platform game with 40 levels and four final bosses. The game is already a classic on Android, released in 2014, it has been updated throughout this time to support new devices. Like a good speedrunner, the objective will be to avoid the obstacles without stopping running.
Downwell: jumps in 8 bits
We control a boy who falls into a well, and we must collect gems and try to get to the bottom alive, killing enemies with a reasonable variety of weapons. It is a quite addictive game in which the levels are generated randomly, which helps to improve the gameplay in a title, which, on the other hand, has a price of 3.09 euros.
Super Phantom Cat – Platform Games
A curious hybrid between new and retro. Although Super Phantom Cat shows that it is a game made today – I don’t know why, but it reminds us of the animations that appeared in Muchachada Nui – it has all those mechanics and essence of lifelong Android platform games , in addition to a totally 16-bit aesthetic.
Ninja Arashi: a classic with a taste of Ninja Gaiden
It is another of the classic Android platform games of the genre, with elegant 2D graphics and excellent gameplay. It’s a free game with a really hard eighth level to beat. Quite a challenge in which we control the legendary ninja Arashi to help him recover his son from the clutches of the evil demon Orochi. Cliffs, obstacles, jumps, enemies of all kinds await us in this adventure.
Sonic the Hedgehog ™ Classic
The mythical character of SEGA is also another of the classics that you cannot miss on your mobile. It is a version very similar to the original game, with the same graphics and with the same goal: to make Sonic run, get rings and defeat his enemies.
If you are looking for games with a modern aesthetic, Banana Kong is a good option. Your character in this game will be a Gorilla who must advance across the map to collect bananas by jumping over obstacles and destroying obstacles.
Dere Evil Exe
If in addition to looking for a game that keeps you active you want to experience a bit of tension, Dere Evil Exe is the game you should download. Based on puzzles and obstacles, your character must run, jump and manipulate objects to survive in a pixel art world.
This game is not easy, in fact it is quite frustrating. To the rhythm of electronic music, you will have to jump all the obstacles the first time or else, you will return to the starting square.
Badland is a game that has caught more than 50 million players. It takes place in a forest full of flowering trees and picturesque beings.
Although its price rises to € 5, it will not disappoint you. Limbo takes you into a mysterious and sinister world where your character must search for his sister. If you want to try it, we recommend that you first experiment with the free demo version.
