Best Platformer

Resolutely old-school in design, the humble platformer has been an industry stalwart synonymous with fun, pick up and play gameplay. The best platformers of the year combined classic gameplay with innovative new features and slick mechanics that made them a true joy to play. Level design and excellently implemented physics showcase the best the genre has to offer, serving up fresh ideas and situations at an exhilarating pace.

Very Hot
Few games are as intentionally hilarious as Broforce, and running and gunning as pixelated paramilitary aping your favourite 80’s action movie stars never gets old. Dealing primarily in excessive force, Broforce is a documentary of average American life. A throwback to 2D platformer-shooters of yesteryear, Broforce makes it difficult to wipe the smile off your face.
