15 best platformer games for Android


Platform games are one of the oldest genres in all of video games and it’s also one of the most popular. In fact, the Mario franchise is among the most successful franchises of all time in any genre. Thankfully, the controls translate fairly well to mobile. Thus, there are some decent mobile platformers out there.  Here are the best platformer games on Android!

Dandara is one of the newer platformer games on mobile. The mechanics are quite unique as well. Players sling from wall to wall (or from ceiling to floor) in order to avoid obstacles, defeat bad guys, and stay alive. It’s also a classic Metroidvania. That means it has a large, interconnected world, free and open exploration, and unlockable areas. It’s also a 2D side-scrolling game with puzzle, adventure, and action elements. We really like this game a lot. However, we totally get it if the $14.99 price tag is too high for you. At the very least, the game has no additional in-app purchases and no ads at all.

Teslagrad is another one of the newer platformer games for mobile. This is also the third Playdigious game on the list (alongside Evoland 1 and 2). The game features hand-drawn style graphics, 2D side-scroller mechanics, and plenty of puzzle elements. Players find various relics that unlock various powers. Those powers are useful for solving the game’s many puzzles and defeating bad guys. You also get boss fights, hardware controller support, and support for Android TV and Nvidia Shield devices. This is easily in the top two or three best platformers of 2018. It runs for $6.99 with no in-app purchases or advertisements.
