Top 5 Platform Games on Android

Best ways to get from left to right on Android

When first-person shooters and third-person sandboxes became the default settings for modern mainstream games, there didn't seem to be much room left for the simple side-scrolling platformer.

However, the rise of the mobile game has seen the dual-dimensional pleasures of old embraced by an all-new generation of platforming enthusiasts.

So, to point you in the right direction (left, obviously), we've negotiated the Google Play archives to bring you our Top 5 platform games on Android.

Take a deep breath and don't look down, 'cause you're about to take a leap of faith.

Rather than utilising the traditional pair of limbs to leap between solid platforms, the spherical star of this elasticated offering relies on spring-loaded steps to propel him to his goal. Lemme see you bounce.
