The Best Hardcore Twitch Based Platformers

Hardcore platformers emphasize twitch based challenges in which you will die a lot. You're often given the same level layout until you can beat it, and you will pick up more of the sequence of the obstacles during your runs. You need quick reflexes to deal with the fast paced challenges, and be prepared to retry multiple times.
