A series that never got the wide love it deserved, Rayman Mini takes the human vegetable hybrid and shrinks him down to the size of an ant, along with his friends. Taking control of the protagonist, his best friend Globox, or the newer barbarian princess Barbara, you will run through 48 levels across 8 distinct worlds.
Each level can be taken at whatever pace desired, from a simple stroll to a full-on sprint. Levels can be replayed as many times as desired to try and get the perfect score, which might just open up a few tasty secrets.
If you are looking for an epic story across amazing landscapes then Little Orpheus should definitely be at the top of your list. In 1962 during NASA's quest to the moon, the Soviets are sending Ivan Ivanovich into an extinct volcano in the titular Little Orpheus. At some point on his journey, he vanishes.
After three years, he returns and is taken to a bunker to debrief. Ivan then relieves his journey from lost civilizations, undersea kingdoms, and prehistoric jungles. You will travel through beautiful, diverse lands as Ivan in sidescrolling action, navigating tricky terrain and taking on enemies either head-on or strategically avoiding them.
Honored by Apple themselves with the Apple Design Award, Oddmar tells the story of a Viking named Oddmar who finds himself unworthy to enter the Norse afterlife of Valhalla. After a vision one night, Oddmar sets out to find glory and earn his place in the golden halls.
To navigate the treacherous lands, a variety of weapons and shields will need to be collected and mastered, with each providing special attributes in battle. Each chapter ends with a unique and challenging boss to defeat, all set to a rather appealing cartoony art style.
Crossy Road Castle
Hailing from the mind behind Crossy Road, you know this game will be incredibly good fun. Crossy Road Castle is an endless platformer across every axis that will have you scaling large rooms or making your way across hazard-filled floors.
What is a bit unusual for a platformer is that Crossy Road Castle has been made from the ground up for co-op action. With the hectic action of the Crossy franchise, adding more players will make for equal measures of frustration and fun. This can be done on separate devices or on one using multiple controllers.
Way of the Turtle
Way of the Turtle has a rather appealing art style and follows the story of two turtles who find themselves stranded on a tropical island. Taking control of Mr or Mrs turtle, you will need to find your way back to your missing partner, across an island full of creatures corrupted by evil magic.
Special abilities can be obtained by collecting different shells, allowing you to dish out a spin attack, and guard against damage or boost. Each of the shells and the turtle can be upgraded along your adventure to rise to any challenge. Way of the Turtle takes a pure platforming experience and delivers it with a beautiful art style and a rather cutesy story.
