Too much of a challenge in a game can put many people off, but for many, that’s something that can elevate an experience to completely new heights. There are, of course, a variety of games from multiple developers and across different genres that cater to that particular audience, and one genre in particular where we get that quite often is platformers. From 2D sidescrollers to 3D experiences, this is a genre where those looking for a game that will put up a fight have plenty of options to dive into. Here, we’re going to talk about a few games in that group that stand out more than most others. 

CELESTE

That Celeste, a small-budget indie game made by a tiny team, is unequivocally one of the best platformers we’ve played in years absolutely cannot be taken for granted. That, of course, is down to the fact that it works within its limitations to deliver something so unique and well-made. Particularly on the platforming front, it’s a game that can be gruelingly difficult. Even if you’re sticking to the critical path, grappling with Celeste’s demanding platforming trials can be quite the task, though it’s the optional content that really provides the truly difficult challenges. Thankfully, thanks to the game’s pixel perfect platforming and incredible level design, that rarely ever feels overbearing.
