Turrican 2 is very good. Technically more advanced than the Amiga version, too!

Does anyone remember Quo Vadis (I think that's how you spell it). On reading this it just sprang to mind, cant remember much about it though, it was on morning till night until it was finished

Was it good, I cant remember, too much booze has fried my brain since those Innocent days

Well, I don't like platform too much, but I love Great Giana Sister, Bruce Lee and Conan. Even Terry's Big Adventures was somehow nice.

Impossible mission(one of the C64's best games ever)

I suppose it doesn't really qualify as a platformer in the true sense like say Mario, even though it does have platforms and jumping

You seriously sat and played this to completion.It was just the one life of health wasn't it or were there checkpoints - unlikely i'm guessing.

Some 5000 screens made the map for this if i'm correctly remembering though i guess you didn't need to see them all

Glad games are less punishing these days otherwise we'd probably all just give up - i'm all for a challenge mind if it feels fair

When people hear 'platform game' they tend to think of scrolling platformers but my favourite 64 platformers are Montezuma's Revenge which is a multi-screen platformer and Lode Runner which is a single screen one. They remain two of my favourite games of all time.

Don't forget it was such a long time ago I really cant remember if I did or not It was also a joint effort between me and one of my old school friends, we also created maps too, although these are now long gone, I'll check your link to see if anything sparks up some more memories

Edit: Oh my god!!!! Now I remember, so that's why we had a skip full of paper maps 'n' couldn't remember which map went where had fun though, still sure it was completed though

As (nearly) everyone else said, Mayhem in Monsterland. I absolutely loved that game, technically excellent and very playable!

Bruce Lee is still awesomely enjoyable. Terry's Big Adventure was a very good budget game. Lode Runner and Chuckie Egg are lovely simpler nonscrolling ones

I never could stand the early 'big boot is going up and down you must pass under it with pixel precision or else die' screen-flip ones. I guess Monty on the Run and possibly Trollie Wallie were okayish.

And Ghosts'n'Goblins is awesome but harder/more frustrating on C64 than on arcade for some reason. But an eternal classic.
