A platformer or platform game is a video game genre characterized by jumping to and from suspended platforms or over obstacles. Platformers often have themes, for example, the popular platformer Don't Look Back does not allow you to move backwards. Many Scratchers have difficulty creating realistic platformers due to the complex mathematical programming and trigonometry involved.
Platformers can have scrolling for the smooth transition between locations as if the camera is following the player.

Platformer levels can also be non-scrolling. The action of contacting the edge of the screen or reaching a goal triggers a transition to the next location. Static Platformers may be easier to code for some users due to the nature of them not requiring extra code to create the scroll effect.
