    Jazz Jackrabbit.
    Commander Keen series.
    Jill of the Jungle series.
    Braid
    Fury of the Furries
    Cave Story
    La Mulana
    N
    Max & the Magic Marker

    There are lots more but I'll just be repeating the best of Amiga as well. Only a couple are remotely new.

    Aquaria and Gish for whatever price you want to pay.

    Also a few other games. I assume Gish is a platformer anyway, my shitputer won't run it [​IMG]
