    Yoshi’s Woolly World Genre: Platformer Developer: Good-Feel Publisher: Nintendo Release Date: 10/16/2015 I believe that Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island is a legitimate masterpiece.

    CreaVures Genre: Platformer Developer: Muse Games Publisher: Muse Games Release Date: 02/23/2011 As a fan of the genre, I would like to say that there are not enough platformers on PC, or at least not enough good platformers.
