Puzzle Platformer
A Puzzle Platfomer is exactly what it sounds like; Platform Game meets Puzzle Game.

A common Puzzle Platfomer format is having a player attempt to overcome obstacles and get to the exit in a series of rooms, often by use of a unique gameplay mechanic. Usually, the first few levels exist to demonstrate to the player the various mechanics the game utilizes, then throw him or her a few simple puzzles to show what the game is capable of, and then requiring the player to think outside the box, requiring more and more creative thinking to reach the goal. Locks and Keys may be in ready supply, as well as blocks. Then, of course, they get trickier and trickier.

Due to the simplicity of making such a game, a large number of them are indie games or freeware/flash games.
