Best Side-scrolling PlatformersPlease add more games to this list. There are tons and tons of side-scrollers.
The Top Ten
This will be the greatest ever. This is like Tom n Jerry cartoon; no matter how old, always the best
This started side-scrolling platformers pretty much. - Jammer196
One of the best games, no wonder it's number 1 spot.
What a classic. Would play it a lot. - UnlawfulMatron
This was absolutely beautiful!
This should be on top. My favorite side scroller is the first Sonic game, but this is technically the "best". At least way better platforming than New super Mario Bros and Little Big Planet.
Xander VERSUS The World: The True Story is a phenomenally underrated series of levels created by me on LBP2. Go play them to remind yourself of the days when this game actually had some interesting, quality platforming and originality left in it. - xandermartin98
This is a great game inspiring creativity and exploration. Too bad the 3rd one sorta ruined it. - UnlawfulMatron
Should be number one. My first videogame. And one of my favorites - Ilikegames
Just to list some of the things that are absolutely amazing about it:
The graphics, the boss/enemy/area designs, the secrets, the music, the sound design, the atmosphere, the story (for its time), the hacks, the speed-running community, the absolutely INCREDIBLE amount of freedom offered by the controls, the nostalgic references to previous Metroids, et cetera, et cetera, et cetera - xandermartin98
Hard as heck man with very interesting, varying levels
Creepy and atmospheric game. Reminds me of my uncle's basement.
How is this not in the top 10? - UnlawfulMatron
My favorite game ever. Play it and you'll be enlightened
This is the best Platformer, period.
