Well i would say that the term platformer came about at a time when you had things like Manic Miner.Most machines have there fair share of pure platformer in the sense these games have you jumping from one platform to another and despite various other elements, they all tend to fall into this rule

Indeed Gods, Prince Persia, Flashback are not what i would class in this exact category.They do involve jumping but the start stop nature and other things are the difference here and it's a bigger difference for example than if you were to include some puzzle aspects into a pure platformer - it would still be that pure platformer but with other elements

You could always say it falls into a platform category that is not the one originally termed is how i would see it
