ARGcast #131: Lesser-Known Platformer Games with Evan Bourgault

by ARGcast

Get extra obscure with us talking about the platformer games most people may not have heard about with special guest Evan Bourgault.

Don’t lose your head, ARGonauts! We’re talking about the games in the platformer genre that are not your typical run-of-the-mill. Evan Bourgault joins us again to share along with us the more obscure platformer titles we played and would like to see come back. Prepare for unlikely heroes such as a rocket-propelled marsupial, pink-haired feral child, and a mummy who lost his head!

Before jumping into our main topic, we get into the news about a company buying up the publishing rights for over 60 games from the Acclaim library. That’s followed by Ed Boon sharing behind the scenes footage from Mortal Kombat 3, a Dance Dance Revolution movie that’s in the works, and some more NES games coming on Nintendo Switch Online.

The Stage of History this week welcomes the head-turning platformer Dynamite Headdy and the wild PlayStation classic Tomba! Robert then shoots out ahead with Sparkster during Obscura. Don’t forget to grab our game code giveaways, then stay awhile for another round of Random Select. Who could Robert be this time?
