Thought I’d point you to this amazing indie game from devs Distractionware (Terry Cavanagh).  Its called VVVVVV and it is about as simple and fun a platformer as you can get, and it looks like a game you might have been playing on an Apple II back in 1983.  It’s really a testament to just how far game design goes in lieu of amazing hi-res graphics.  VVVVVV manages to tell enough of a story and convey enough emotion through its simple sprites and awesome Commodre 64 inspired music that you want to play as soon as it lets you.  It is essentially gravity based- think the gravity puzzles in Strider minus the good graphics, swords and robot gorillas. The first two levels are free on Kongregate and you can buy the game here.
