Over the past couple of weeks I have been working on an essay talking about how platform games have evolved over the years. I have talked about the first true platformer which was Donkey Kong. I have also talked about Mario and how his timeline has evolved. Mario has gone from a 2D side scroller to a 3D open world game. In my essay I have talked about Moore’s Law. Moore’s Law states that every two years computer power will double. As computer have become more powerful, bigger and better games have been made.
I have gave my opinions on what I think platform games will be like in the future. I want to see some platform games go back to the 16 – bit graphics. I also want platform games to reward players as some games in this genre have drifted away from rewarding players and started focusing on graphics.
