I was going to say those and some more, but he pretty much got it right there. Try Super Metriod too.

Plok! will probably entertain you. It's a really good game, with great graphics, amazing music and unique gameplay, but unfortunately overlooked by the general audience.

*punches Flame_Blade88* Super Metroid is an action-adventure, not a platformer. By that logic, Zelda II is a platformer.

That's really all I could muster up. I'm more of an RPG guy for the sole reason that they last longer.

There are a lot of platformers on SNES, but I think only the Donkey Kong Country and Mega Man X games can hold their own against SMW and All-Stars.

It is in the U.S. and EU, and Europe, and Oceania, and Africa, and South America, but SNES has everything else.

Donkey Kong Country 1-3, for sure. Right up there with Mario in the quality of platforming; and it has even BETTER graphics and music.

Cool Spot is a surprisingly good platformer, too. Looking at the cover, you'd think it was a crappy licensed title. But 7-Up's circular little mascot manages to provide a lot of fun, and some eye-popping graphics for the 16-bit era.
