5 Obscure Platformers You Probably Didn't Know Existed

The Last Tinker: City of Colors

ReCore isn’t the only 3D Platformer that has repurposed mechanics from other genres; Mimimi Production’s The Last Tinker: City of Colors is a Platformer with the framework that’s inspired by the Golden age of the Nintendo 64 classics that are held in high regard with a slew of other mechanics that are borrowed from other modern action adventure titles.

Altering the formula of its level design for automated platform jumping and movement across equidistant geometry, the quest will follow the path of Koru and his floating piñata friend Tap as they journey to fight off the opaque disaster that plagues them known as the Bleakness. Featuring collectible trinkets, and new moves within a story that contains a thinly veiled commentary on institutionalized racism, the independent 3D platform utilizes much of its traversal and combat from the Assassin’s Creed and Prince of Persia franchise, giving way to interesting bits of jumping and swinging through a number of giant stages to roam.

The game may not feature all of the traditional conventions that are associated with the 3D Platformer genre, but it’s very much imbued with that same sense of spirit with quirky dialogue exchanged from a colorful cast of characters, and larger-than-life adventure that’s definitely worth checking out.
