Early proto platform games evolved out of arcade games like ''VideoGame/SpacePanic'' (1980) (which had platforming through climbing ladders, but no jumping). ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'', released a year later, [[UrExample added jumping over obstacles to the mix]] and was followed by games such as ''VideoGame/{{Miner 2049er}}'' and ''Lode Runner''. Many of these early platformers had a single static screen with the goal being to either reach the top of the stage or collect all of a certain item. ''JumpBug'' was the first game to use side scrolling levels. The [[TropeMaker first game widely considered to fit this format]] is ''VideoGame/{{Pitfall}}'', but [[TropeCodifier the genre gained its widest acceptance]] with ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros1'' in 1985.

For many years, the dominant form of console video game. The Platform Game or {{Platformer}} is a subgenre of {{Action Game}} characterized by gameplay dominated by leaping over or [[GoombaStomp onto]] enemy characters and between platforms of varying heights. As a rule, {{Player Character}}s in a platformer are able to [[InASingleBound jump very high]] and, are usually able to [[JumpPhysics change direction in mid-air]]. BottomlessPits and [[LavaPit other]] [[SpikesOfDoom kinds]] [[SuperDrowningSkills of pit]] traps are common hazards. Climbing, swinging, and other acrobatic maneuver may also utilized to get around. In the traditional 2D platformer, play progresses from left to right, though many of the older games [[RatchetScrolling only allowed movement in one direction]].
