What is Hardcore Platformer League?

Hardcore Platformer League is a minimal platformer game that focuses on speedrunning and tricks to make gamers have a good time. For those who may not know, speedrunning is when you attempt to complete any given level as quickly as humanly possible and has been an activity enjoyed by gamers for decades.

The game graphics are pseudo 3D but the game is played entirely in 2D. There controls are on-screen buttons which were actually increased in size a few updates ago so that they’d be easier to use. The game requires you to jump, move, wall-jump, and perform various other tricks to get around obstacles and get to the finish line. There are over 70 levels also.

Along with the game, you’ll get achievements, hidden levels, and even the ability to record yourself playing to watch it back. It’s centered around creativity and speed so by watching your replays to see what you could do to improve. It’s definitely an usual feature for a game and we liked that. When you wrap the whole thing up, what you get is a fast paced, minimal platformer that is pretty fun to play.

The bottom line is that this is a free game, it’s minimal which a lot of people like, and it has some fun features to keep the challenge alive. It’s not the best game ever but it’s a great little time waster.
