Platformers employing classic run (or fly) 'n' gun gameplay are few and far between in these days of FPS domination, but that doesn't mean they don't exist. Case in point: the downloadable Rocket Knight. Gamers will remember this series from Rocket Knight Adventures on the Sega Genesis and Sparkster on the SNES, and Rocket Knight carries on the franchise's tradition of helping your Saturday mornings fly by...at least until your girlfriend looks at you with contempt and then you have to go care about her instead. Things were so much easier 15 years ago!
FUN FACT: It took two pitches over four years for the developer to get the green light to revive the franchise after a 16-year hiatus.
