You might not think that your average buttonless Android phone is the ideal device for playing platform games on.
However, as smartphone gaming has matured over the years, developers have experimented with and perfected new touchscreen-focused control methods. The results have often been stunning.

Some echo the retro 2D delights of Super Mario Bros. and Sonic The Hedgehog, while others are sprawling adventures in the mode of Metroid and Castlevania. Still others don't quite resemble anything on traditional consoles, springing off in their own unique direction.
