“Why aren’t there more platform games?” was not a thought I ever expected to have, but it came to me as I was trawling Steam for something to play last week. The issue was that I wanted a platform game about movement and jumping, and there’s surprisingly few of those. Nearly everything I hadn’t yet played was more about shooting, or roguelike mechanics, or crafting. I had all but resigned myself to playing Super Meat Boy again when a friend linked me to Flat Heroes [official site]. I was convinced to try it by a GIF, and it was love at first jump.
