Platformers are ,for many gamers, the first introduction into the world of video games. Many of them have existed since the inception of arcades, home consoles, portable devices or even the home Personal Computer. There is certainly something about a platform game that’s just right.

Certainly, there are many Iconic game titles we can turn to when we’re looking for some old-school gaming enjoyment but lets not ignore the new generation of titles that were influenced by those old school favorites, which is why this episode of the retro VGM revival hour is dedicated to Platform games.
