A platformer is a type of video game in which the gameplay revolves around traversing levels, usually by jumping between platforms and avoiding obstacles or enemies. The player typically controls a character that can move left, right, and jump, and must navigate through a series of increasingly difficult levels. Platformers can vary in their visual style, from 2D side-scrolling games to 3D games that use platforming mechanics. Examples of popular platformer games include Super Mario Bros., Sonic the Hedgehog, and Donkey Kong Country.
