Games for mobile devices have become a legion, and it is almost impossible to get an idea of the immense catalog that it contains. We have 100% free games, paid games, and games that glide through that fuzzy nebula of in-game shopping.
The best platform games for Android (free and paid)
Today, we will focus on a very specific genre, platform games. If you like to jump, run, dodge and defeat the enemy in the old way, do not overlook the following selection with some of the best platform games we can find for Android.
Dan the man
"Dan The Man" is a great action platformer game retro style and a really impressive level of gameplay. The game is developed by Halfbrick Studios - the same ones from the famous Fruit Ninja - and has just received an update recently with new levels of play. Completely free (with integrated ads) and compatible with controllers.
Dan The Man has a 4.8 star rating and over 5 million downloads.Download QR-Code Dan the Man - Fighting Games Developer: Halfbrick Studios Price: Free
Sword of Sholan
Sword of Sholan carries the Pixel-Art in his veins. A beautiful game with a great variety of enemies and very careful designs, final bosses and, in short, a combat platform created with great care. It has an arc of difficulty that increases appropriately through the 30 levels of the game. Free and compatible with gamepads.

Super mario run
The first and only Mario to date on Android that came loaded with controversy: the first 4 levels are free, having to pay 10.99 euros to unlock the rest of the game. Is it a high price? Probably. Which does not mean that it is a very fun game, with very good graphics, multiplayer mode and simple mechanics but with many nuances.
Super Mario Run has a 3.7 star rating and over 50 million downloads on the Google Play Store.Download QR-Code Super Mario Run Developer: Nintendo Co., Ltd. Price: Free
Ubisoft's mascot game is probably the best example of what Nintendo's Mario Run could have been, and it wasn't. As in the game of the plumber with a mustache, we are faced with a platform run and jump, but in this case free, and can even deactivate in-game purchases from the game settings. High-level graphics that are close to perfection and a playability of 10.
Rayman Adventures has a 4.6 star rating and over 10 million downloads on Google Play.Download QR-Code Rayman Adventures Developer: Ubisoft Entertainment Price: Free
We went from a mobile game with current video console graphics, to a slightly more modest one, which, curiously, is also available for consoles such as the PS4. In Downwell we control a boy who falls into a well, and we must collect gems and try to reach the bottom alive, killing enemies with a reasonable variety of weapons. It is quite an addictive game in which the levels are randomly generated, which helps to improve the gameplay in a title, which, on the other hand, is priced at 3.09 euros.

Sonic The Hedgehog and the rest of SEGA Forever games
SEGA Forever is the name of the line of classic games of the Mega Drive and Master System that SEGA launched for Android this year, and it has turned out to be a great success. With a large number of classic platform games from the 90s such as the first Sonic, Ristar or Kid ChamaleonBest of all, they are completely free. One of the best ways to keep the catalog alive old school of SEGA in the XXI century.
Sonic The Hedgehog Classic has a 4.4 star rating and over 10 million downloads on the Google Play Store.Download QR-Code Sonic the Hedgehog ™ Classic Developer: SEGA Price: Free
Super phantom cat
A curious hybrid between new and retro. Although Super Phantom Cat shows that it is a game made today - I don't know why, but it reminds me of the animations that appeared in Muchachada Nui - it has all those mechanics and essence of lifelong platform games, plus of a totally 16-bit aesthetic. It won the Game of the Year 2016 award on Google Play and has a large following.

LIMBO is a game that surpasses the barrier of simple fun to become a small work of art. Winner of more than 100 awards, presents a black and white atmosphere, loaded with mystery and really accomplished physics. Their puzzles have an interesting difficulty curve that helps you to hold on until the end of the game. It has a price of 5.30 euros, a fair figure for a game that is very worthwhile.

Another Weird Plataformer
"Another weird platformer", literally. It may have the worst graphics on this list, but the truth is that it has its point. We control a "stickman" or stick man in his fun parkour rides by the diverse walls and platforms that are presented throughout each level.

We finished the list with Ninja Arashi, a great action platformer with elegant graphics and excellent gameplay. It's a free game with a really hard eighth level to beat. Quite a challenge in which we control the legendary ninja Arashi to help him recover his son from the clutches of the evil demon Orochi.

I am aware that I left a lot of great platform games off the list -this top would have given for another 10 titles without much problem-, so do not hesitate to leave your particular recommendation in the comments area.You have Telegram installed?
