5 Obscure Platformers You Probably Didn't Know Existed


This next entry may puzzle a few of you but rest-assured, Comcept’s ReCore is very much a charismatic 3D platformer at its... core. Starring a scavenger named Joule Adams, players will run around an open-world wasteland that’s filled with enemies and collectibles that Joule can gather towards her goals of obtaining the shiny prize of its adventure, the Prism Core.

Utilizing a wide color-based arsenal that’s equipped with special advantages against certain enemies of that respective color, Joule will explore numerous dungeons that hold these Prism Cores, replaying them in succession to earn new cores in order to unlock additional areas on the map that’re holding more cores.

Looking at this action-adventure from Keiji Inafune’s independent studio as a pure shooter is a bit insular when you factor in all of the character growth, collectible loot, and contextual level design that it has to offer. It may not be the most polished at times, but there have already been numerous updates and patchwork from Armature Studios to address a lot of the performance issues of the game, and the new budget minded price makes ReCore a prime contender for anyone who has 3D Platformers on the brain.
