The joys of jumping!

Loader

Platform games have been captivating gamers ever since the 1980s, with their unique blend of challenges that demand fast reflexes, coordination, and exploration.

Here, we've put together a selection of six games for ages 8+ that both kids and adults will love. They'll whisk you away to ethereal worlds where you'll be jumping and whirling around, fighting fearsome enemies, and exploring enchanting game worlds. Here they are!

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair

An epic adventure worthy of Donkey Kong. You can access the last level and final boss from the very start of the game, but you'll have to tackle all the other levels first if you're to have a hope of beating them. We loved this one!
