I am writing a guide to all PSX 2D platformers. Right now I am just in the planning/information gathering stage, so I need help filling out my list of games. I can't help but feeling like there are some obscure Japanese games missing from my list. I think I am also still lacking a lot of the ports/compilations. So please contribute if you know of anything that is not on this list!

In defining 2D platformer, I am referring to games with a 2D or 2.5D side scrolling perspective (It can have polygons as long as the gameplay is along a 2d axis). The game does not necessarily have to focus on platform jumping, but it must include jumping of some sort. Therefore, games like Metal Slug and Castlevania SOTN will count for purposes of this list.

Thanks for your help!

The list:

Adventures of Lomax, The
Adventures of Little ralph (aka Chippoke Ralph no Daibouken)
Alfred Chicken
Bubble Bobble also featuring Rainbow Islands -- port/compilation
C: The Contra adventure (some levels)

No, I don't think I had checked there yet. Their list is far from complete as well, but I see a couple that I don't recognize, so I will check them out. Thanks for the tip!

No, the ones I didn't recognize on there actually turned out to be different localizations of games already on my list. Except for possibly the kids' game - "dragon tales" which I can't find any screenshots of to confirm if it is actually a 2d platformer
