It’s award season here at Twinfinite! Today, we’re looking back at the best platforming games from 2019. Voted on by our editors, these were the best games that emphasized traditional action-platforming style gameplay.
Let’s start with some honorable mentions, followed by our two runners-up, and of course, our overall winner for 2019.
Best Platforming Games of 2019
Honorable Mention: Yoshi’s Crafted World
Features Editor Greysun Morales: Yoshi’s Crafted World is one of the most charming and adorable platformers of the year that can’t help but make you smile from ear to ear while playing.
The visually impressive cardboard look of the environments and stages really bring the world to life and even though the difficulty is set pretty low, there are some hardcore platforming challenges that await players once you finish up the main story.
The bosses are also super inventive, there are tons of collectibles to go back and retrieve, and several other challenges that makes Yoshi’s Crafted World an awesome platformer for anyone of any age on the Switch.
Plus, there’s also a silly but fun cooperative mode that is great at introducing someone to platformers for the first time or just a way to force your partner to play games with you.
