The Best Xbox One Platformer Games

Updated October 7, 2020 434 votes 79 voters 4.8k views27 items

When it comes to good platformer games for Xbox One, there's a pretty good variety. One of the newest Xbox One platformers that fits this classic genre is Dead Cells. Released in 2018, this game takes you through procedurally generated levels that offer intense challenges that really feel satisfying when you rise above them. If you've never played Cuphead, it's a must-play platformer for any Xbox One owner. Other options include Unravel 2, My Memory Of Us, and Ori and the Will of the Wisps, a fun puzzle platformer and a Microsoft exclusive.

Not every platform game on this list is an Xbox One original - take A Hat In Time for example, which came out in 2017. However, all these platformers are currently available on the Xbox Marketplace, regardless of release date.

Vote up your favorite platform game for Xbox One, or simply use this list as a recommendation guide if you're looking for more titles to play.
