Sounds like a platform game with puzzles.. Since your basic interface to the game is the guy on the platforms, I'd say that qualifies.
I have no idea what you mean by the last part..
How can you have a platform game without it being some kind of action game?
Is there some generally accepted definition somewhere where games like Leander and the others aren't considered platform games?
I considers platform games something like Nicky boom,fire & ice,Pinkie,zool, doddle bug,oscar,trolls,mr nutz,puggsy,bc kid,james pond seres and many others
but the definition comes always with trivia
