I knew Hollow Knight was going to be impressive when going into it, but I didn't realize how impressive it was.

The fun and charming platform inspired by 8-bit era visuals has gotten a shiny new campaign. This isn’t the only major addition and there’s plenty other new content available to enjoy.

Manipulated is a short puzzle-platformer that warns you about having to think. It's certainly not wrong.

Virtual Programming have release their latest Linux port with 'Putty Squad'. It's a remake of the 1994 platformer that shares the same name, but the updated release has crispier high resolution visuals. VP provided me a copy last night, so here's some thoughts.

We certainly aren't short on action platformers, but Nongünz looks like it could easily stand out with the unique visual style.

The latest game from Orangepixel, Meganoid, will launch soon with day-1 Linux support and I have to say for a platform it looks really damn good.

Sumoman is a brand new and rather hilarious puzzle platformer powered by the UNIGINE engine. It released with day-1 Linux support and I took a look. There's also a video of my failures included.

Hollow Knight, an incredibly stylish action and adventure game recently launched for Windows, but it seems Linux gamers won't be left waiting for too long.

Sumoman is confirmed to be coming to Linux and after watching the trailer I'm officially sold on it. We do have a great variety of platformers, but the physics at play here looks hilarious.

I've spent a bit of time flailing about in VThree, a new Early Access run and jump game based on speed-running to the end of a level. It's fun, but difficult.

I only wrote about signs of Fossil Echo finally coming to Linux yesterday, but it has already seen a release!
