I wouldn't tag Turrican, SOTB, Gods, Flashback and Lionheart as platformers, they're more complex games. (these 5, not the platformers). I'd call them... arcade games!
And remember... a platformer worthy of its genre, is always, always taking place in a cutesy environment.
Some great ones that spring to mind: Rodland, Superfrog, Rainbow Islands, the James Ponds, Lupo Alberto.
Although Superfrog (Fire & Ice too) probably breaks out of the boundaries of the platformer genre, due to the extensive level-exploring and overall greatness.
Hmm it's getting late...
