Top Ten Genesis/Mega Drive Platformers

With a stellar selection of titles to choose from, which games made Power Up Gaming's cut? (Retro)

There are so many great platformers for the Genesis

Ristar is amazing, and needs to come back

Sonic, Earthworm Jim, and QuackShot Starring Donald Duck all fantastic games

Ristar was indeed amazing ! It's the first game I could never finish because it was freaking too hard. :'D
Relientk77  +   543d ago
It was hard, also it needed save spots, passwords or something.

yeah, never beat it either fantasic game tho

Kid Chameleon was incredible. Surprised it's not on this list.

Also, what about Cool Spot?

Yeah Kid Chameleon was My favourite, couldn't b bothered to read the article so dunno if Dynamite Heady is on there, but that was awesome too.
Earthworm Jim?

Oh man I remember Lion King and loved that game, not sure if the main reason was because of the movie or the actual game.

Too many too choose from

Clearly sonic is the obvious one that springs to mind, but there's also vectorman, which I found to be really challenging. If there's one thing the megadrive was known for, it was quality 2d platformers.

Good game. Crap character.

this list is horrible.
Where is Alladin? Earthworm Jim? Shinobi? Vectorman?
Dude... Where is STRIDER.
How did this get a approved?

Maybe because the list wasn't "Garrisons top 10" or maybe because they couldn't fit 100 games on 1 list? It's just one sites opinion they probably haven't played every game in the world.

Granted, a few spring to mind not on this list but hey, maybe I'll just put my own together. Haters gonna hate!

Streets Of Rage 2, awesome music for a game of that time.. Ok.. not a platformer, but it's one of the Megadrive's best games.

There were indeed a lot of games to choose from. I've learnt to take lists like this with a pinch of salt 'cause everybody has different opinions.

I like the list though, brings back some memories though I never played the Taz game, Toy Story was awesome!
