Jump! Platformer Titles You Can Play with the Kids

 

 

August 18, in the year of our Lord 2017 -- Platformer games used to be very popular in the 80s and 90s. They were both very challenging and fun to play at the same time. The simplicity of older platformer titles was among the many traits that made this genre of computer games very popular.



Many of the popular platformer titles are making a comeback to modern platforms, including Windows PC. These titles still offer 8-bit graphics and that old-school magic, but they now come in 1080p resolution and with modern features. If you’re interested in sharing some nostalgic moments with the kids, here are the games you definitely need to try.

The Disney Afternoon Collection
There were not many cartoon titles and TV shows more popular than the Disney Afternoon series. Characters such as Donald Duck and Uncle Scrooge appeared on television regularly, telling funny and incredible stories that kept us glued to the TV for hours. The series quickly inspired several popular NES titles, including the hit games Duck Tales and Duck Tales 2.

These popular Disney Afternoon-inspired games are making a comeback in Full HD with the release of The Disney Afternoon Collection. The collection was released more than 20 years after the original games were launched, but it is still a very entertaining set of games to play even by today’s standards.

You will find all six popular titles from the Disney Afternoon series: Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers, Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers 2, Darkwing Duck, Duck Tales, Duck Tales 2, and Tale Spin. Be sure to have your PC gaming speakers on the next time you play these games with the kids, because the improved background music has the ability to take you back to those fun afternoon in front of the TV.

Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection
This next title, Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection, is available exclusively on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, but it is a title you definitely want to try if you have either of these consoles. With improved graphics and better resolution, Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection brings back the glory of Sonic the Hedgehog to your high-definition screen.

The game features the classic Sonic side-scroll adventure in its original glory. You also get other games to play with your kids, including the classic title Ecco the Dolphin. There are a whopping 40 games in this collection, more than enough to keep you and the children entertained throughout the weekend.

Mega Man Legacy Collection
We can’t talk about classic platformer games without talking about Mega Man. As one of the original platformer hits for the Nintendo Entertainment System, Mega Man games were very popular among avid and casual gamers alike. Today, you can play the entire series on your PC thanks to the Mega Man Legacy Collection.
Yes, the collection includes all six original Mega Man games. It features more than just the ported and improved games too. The Mega Man Legacy Collection also includes new challenges and exclusive developer art from the glory days of the series. If you love classic games or if you’re a big fan of the Mega Man series, this collection is a must-try!
