    I have finished my pile of unplayed DS games and now I'm have a strong desire to play another platformer. I've already finished the usual suspects(Mario Bros, Sonic, Yoshi, both Castlevanias, both Kirbys, and MegaMan ZX), does anyone out there have any recommendations for other good platforming games that I should try?

    kirby squead squad was alright.. though pretty standard.
    kirby canvas curse is another good one... not much else really, maybe check out snemulDS and some of the classic SNES platformers?

    Also, if you wait a few days (hopefully tomorrow) Rockman ZX Advent comes out.

    Unfortunately I've played all of the above, and as for Rockman ZX Advant, I can't read Japanese so I'll have to wait for the American release. But thanks so far for the recommendations. It just seems like there aren't a lot of good platformers out for a system that's nearly 3 years old now.

    I am currently playing Jump! Ultimate Stars, Wario Touched and Megaman ZX. All of these are really great games.

    Chronos Twin is out this week, that looks good. Cookie & Cream is quite enjoyable. New Zealand Story is great if you can get past the iffy mini games. Super Princess Peach is pretty good too. Viewtiful Joe us very good but I wouldn't call it a platformer. I would recomend Legend of Starfy 4 but it is all in Japanese.

    A lot of people like Garfields Nightmare, Ratatouille and Over The Hedge. They also good decent reviews but I fount them to be a bit average.

    Theres some more due out later in the year that look good.

    Seconded [​IMG] (usually called a mangled translation title of "Densetsu no Stafi 4"). The first 3 were brilliant, and I just started this one last week. Well cute, gets harder as it goes on and it's funnier when you make up your own dialouge; that intro sequence is just plain wrong I tell you!!! Shocking behavior [​IMG]
