    This is something that I've been looking into recently as we're close to releasing our very own platform game in the next few weeks. But something that's been niggling me is that I'm no longer sure if this is as popular a genre as it once was?

    I grew up playing games of all kinds from the Speccy days and one of my favourite genre's was the platform game. But I can't seem to find too many that have been major successes.

    Is this because really, platform games need a physical joypad to control a character as they jump around? Or is it that mobile gamers these days just don't really like them? Or am I completely wrong and they are still a major force?

    Interested to see your thoughts & comments.
