A platform game is a game that takes place on...you guessed it...platforms. Such as Mario, Pac Man World, Crash Bandicoot, Rayman, Luigis Mansion, Sonic...etc...

no, not really, that would be a port


like zion said...and like shadow said, so if you see a game similar to mario's style, then it is most likely a platform game. platform relates to genre, not a specific console or something. today, the major platformers are mario, crash bandicoot, spyro and rayman. so if you see a game similar to that, like vexx for example, then it is most likey in the platform genre.

Games on more than one system are MULTIplatform - not platformers.

Platform games are games that consist of puzzle which often require you to hop on platforms. They also have item collecting, point acquiring and other things of the like.
