I don't really consider Turrican 2 to be a platformer. I'd say it's more of an explorative run and gun game. If you took the platform elements away and had it as a straight left to right pure run and gun, it would still hold up and be pretty fun. However, if you took the shooting elements away and had the game as a pure platformer (lets just say you could kill all the enemies by jumping on them in this case), it would be pretty dull as the challenge isn't about negotiating platforms. The platforming parts of the game don't really increase in difficulty like they do in a dedicated platform game, they are more there to make the exploration more interesting.

SMW, Rainbow Islands, NZS are platformers.

Turrican 2, Gods, Flashback are not.

DKC is shit.
