    2D Platform Games

    I am looking for a good (probably old) platform 2D game. Something with a lot of action where you beat a lot of bad guys while walking around. Ideas please!

    Super Mario? Also look into Commander Keen, it's an early 1990's 2D platform game series from ID, i believe it was their first games - and they are very good and entertaining, even nowadays. (especially nowadays :P) It might be abandonware by now - i'm not certain though.

    Steam has some very old platformers available and GoG might also have some.
