The thing is most people including me wont use the term in a broad sense.To me a platform game is what it was originally termed to mean and if a game has jumping in it, i don't then always call it a platformer

Something like Metroid is what i would consider a adventure platformer/shooter but it's the general jumping movement that has me deciding the platformer part.Were it the same game but closer to how Flashback manages to climb and jump around, then for me this part just wouldn't feel like a platformer in the true old sense.I could at that point easily say it does fall into this broad category but most people don't refer to this anyway
