Go Back In Time With These Retro Platformers
They may look like classics, but they're actually newer mobile titles!
Sometimes, you just want to take it back to the days of old. Retro throwbacks are awesome, after all. Android developers know and recognize this, of course, and have created a cavalcade of titles inspired by the titles you remember from childhood (or are just currently enamored with) to sate your desire. Here are a few to get you started on the road to retro loving.
TimeChaos is a throwback that channels the colors and graphical efforts of an original Game Boy title with such precision that if you didn't know what system you were playing it on, you'd certainly wonder what it was you were looking at. It's also an excellent platformer.

2. Meganoid 2
From the creators of Time Chaos, Meganoid 2 is an adorable Mega Man clone with over 270 levels for you to complete. It may take you more than a few tries to get through everything, but it's got that satisfying kind of challenge that could only stem from a game from yesteryear. You know the kind we're talking about, don't you?

3. Pixel Whirled
Pixel Whirled is a colorful and whimsical take on the arcade shooter that finds players taking out waves of enemies between ninjas and pirates. It also happens to look like a title that wouldn't be out of place on a classic Nintendo system, and that's what's landed it a spot on this list.
