->''"There's a lot of... ''*wheeze*'' running and... ''*wheeze*'' jumping, isn't it?"''
-->-- '''[[WesternAnimation/RockosModernLife Rocko]]''', ''[[NicktoonsUnite Nicktoons: Attack of the Toybots]]''

For many years, the dominant form of console video game. The Platform Game or {{Platformer}} is characterized by gameplay dominated by leaping over or [[GoombaStomp onto]] enemy characters and between platforms of varying heights. In the traditional 2D platformer, play progresses from left to right. Other such games, mostly involving infiltration or return scenarios, choose the sneaky approach from the right. Some games (especially older ones) [[RatchetScrolling only allow movement in one direction]]. An AutoScrolling platformer advances the scenery independent of the {{Player Character}}'s movement, and thus the player can be pinned by a platform as it scrolls off the screen. Auto scrolling was rare for entire games, but frequently appeared for individual levels.

As a rule, {{Player Character}}s in the platformer are {{Bouncing Battler}}s who are critically injured by [[CollisionDamage colliding with enemies]], can jump very high, and, in accordance with the [[JumpPhysics special laws of physics]] applicable to video game characters, are able to change direction in mid-air. BottomlessPits and [[LavaPit other]] [[SpikesOfDoom kinds]] [[SuperDrowningSkills of pit]] traps are common hazards.

The [[UrExample first games which started to have platform game elements]] are ''Frogs'' (first game which included jumping, but no platforms) released for the arcades in 1978 and ''VideoGame/SpacePanic'' (which had platforming, but no jumping), released in 1980. Finally, ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong'', which was released a year later, put those two things together, and ''JumpBug'' added side scrolling to the mix.

The [[TropeMaker first game widely considered to fit this format]] is ''Pitfall'', but [[TropeCodifier the style gained its widest acceptance]] with ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros1'' 2D platformers are still being made, due to their accessibility and ease of programming, as independent PC titles, web-based Flash games, and for the various handheld console platforms and cell phones.

Games where the player is given a firearm and emphasis is put on such weapons are known as "run-and-gun" games, with some famous examples being ''VideoGame/{{Contra}}'' and ''VideoGame/MetalSlug''. Although they are often associated with the ShootEmUp genre, the player is still bound by gravity and often jumps across platforms, so they are still platform games in a strong sense of the word.

The 3D equivalent to the platformer is almost always rendered in the third person, as with ''VideoGame/SuperMario64'' and ''VideoGame/CrashBandicoot1996'', but ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime'' and its sequels are considered by many to be hybrids of the 3D Platformer and the FirstPersonShooter (with {{Metroidvania}} elements, of course). The only straight first-person platformer series is ''JumpingFlash''.

This genre has heavy overlap with the {{Action Game}} genre, especially in games in which enemies [[AvertedTrope aren't]] defeated by [[GoombaStomp jumping directly on them]] such titles as:''[[{{Metroid}} Metroid]]'', ''Franchise/JakAndDaxter'', ''Franchise/RatchetAndClank'' and the ''Franchise/MegaMan'' series among others are still characterized as platformers because they have a dedicated jump button and jumping is still a large part of the gameplay.

Like most game genres, platformers are steadily {{evolving|Trope}} with the times; they started as linear obstacle courses, but gradually became less linear, with multiple level paths, [[HubLevel playable overworld areas]], and/or map screens with different routes; eventually, the genre even began branching into the {{Metroidvania}} genre. They became much less linear with the jump to 3D, and became known as '[[GottaCatchEmAll collectathon]]' titles. [[VideoGame/SuperMario64 The]] [[VideoGame/BanjoKazooie first]] [[VideoGame/SpyroTheDragon1998 few]] were fine, but after the thousandth or so knock-off, gamers eventually began to get sick of this. As a result, "collectathon" titles began waning in popularity. As of right now, the genre is in a weird stage of either being based on particular gimmicks, or going back to its roots. The former became puzzle games of a sort (eventually becoming prevalent enough [[PuzzlePlatformer to be considered a sub-genre]]), and the latter tend to be more linear, pure platforming challenges, and spawned the PlatformHell phenomenon.

Subgenres include CinematicPlatformGame (which has a more realistic style), PlatformHell (which is [[HarderThanHard really, really freaking hard]][[note]]Let's put it this way - NintendoHard is an understatement![[/note]] - no, ''seriously''), EliminationPlatformer, and PuzzlePlatformer (which combines elements of {{Puzzle Game}}s).
