In simple terms, a Platformer game is a game in which the player or the character jumps on platforms to achieve points or proceed through the levels. As an example, those good old coin collecting games like Temple Run are platformer games.

While platformer games were pretty much in vogue back in the 1980s and 1990s, their appeal reduced as game developers started launching more sophisticated games in the 2000s. Later, in the smartphone era, platformer games like Temple Run became a rage once again as users preferred playing simple time-pass games on their phone instead of long storyline based ones.
As of present, many users have started playing platformer games on their computers once again thanks to the ease they offer. If you are confused over your choice of platformer games to play on your computer, this list could be helpful for you:

Do you remember the cartoon Sonic the Hedgehog? Well, if you are a 90’s kid, you probably would remember it. The Sonic Dash game is based around characters from the same cartoon. You could use the Dash move to make the character race at supersonic speed. Destroy obstacles and kill enemies are you proceed through the levels. The game is available on the Microsoft Store here.

A cute game for kids, Merge Plane – Click Idle Tycoon is pretty satisfying if not advanced. The colorful background makes it even more fun for children. The story is basically to buy planes and merge them to create your plane empire. The more you fly the planes, the more virtual money you earn, the more money you earn, the better planes you could buy. You can download this game from the Microsoft Store here.
3] Toon Cup 2018
Toon Cup 2018 is about a football game among your favorite toon characters. Pick any of the Powerpuff Girls, Regular Show, Teen Titans, Time, Ben 10, Gumball, and form your team. Then play against your opponents to score coins. The more the coins, the nearer you get to victory. This game is available on the Microsoft Store.

Mining typically involves planting explosives at the mining site and exploding them to break the ground. This is the concept behind Exploration Lite-Craft Mining. The game is about a treasure hunt across different biomes. You need to bomb the blocks and make your way to the treasure. Check more about the game on the Microsoft Store here.
5] Lep’s World
Similar to the good old Dave, Lep’s World is a platformer game where Lep is the main character. He needs to overcome hurdles and score coins on the way. As he scores points, he sets a record that could be broken in further games. Lep’s World has levels and progressing through each level makes the game tougher. The game can be downloaded from the Microsoft Store here.
6] Taptastic Monsters
A pretty light game, Taptastic Monsters’ gameplay requires the lead character to fight against animated monsters as he progresses in the game. There are many landscapes which depend on the level. The monsters are cute, thus making the game ideal for kids to play. You can check more on Microsoft Store here.
7] Croc’s World 3
While Crocodile is a ruthless creature, I will never understand the reason game developers (and cartoon creators) try presenting it as a cute and sweet character while designing games for children. Whatever be the reason, it works. Croc’s World has been a successful series, and its third and latest version has been no exception to the legacy. The little innocent Croc needs to jump up the stairs to bag the diamonds. This can is available on the Microsoft Store here.
8] Croc’s World Construction Kit
Once you are done playing the Croc’s World series, you could consider playing Croc’s World Construction Kit. The game is unique in its own manner. While being a platformer game, the gameplay requires the character to “build” new levels with blocks of bricks. Thus the game progresses in the manner you want it to. Perfect for growing kids, the game could be downloaded from the Microsoft Store here.
Children would love this game for many reasons – cute characters, colorful background, incredible learning. The story is as follows – Hami is a bunny who has a teddy. His teddy was stolen by mini-goblins, and he has to find it in a tricky forest while fighting against a lot of enemies. Get this game from the Microsoft Store.
10] Jungle Adventures 2
I didn’t know that the Jungle Adventure series is one of the platformer games, however, now that I know, I can’t exclude them from the list. The story of Jungle Adventures (both the versions) is Addu, the hero along with his pet bull needs to save the forest they live in. The forest’s fruits have been stolen by a mighty magician. The game is available on the Microsoft Store here.
