I'm just pointing out a flaw that for me does not make the game enjoyable (and proving the existence of the problem since while it is obvious to me it is not to others ).
I won't spend much time like others defending the amiga/providing examples because as I said, except few titles I am not especially into the platforming genre and besides I do not especially like most of the amiga platformers.
I like the Turrican series, Second Samurai, Wiz'n Liz, Alfred Chicken can be fun in short sessions and maybe I forgot some others.
As you can see, most of those are far from being 'pure' (or whatever they are called) platform games such as Mario so I am not sure you would have any interest towards them.
If I would want to spend some time jumping around it would probably playing some Trials maps in UT2004.
