This article is important because if you're investing in a game controller for your Android device, then getting some top quality platformers is probably also in your best interest. There is no other type of game that can be played like nothing else if not played with a game pad.
Now I'm no guru on platformers and I probably will miss quite a few in this list. Keep in mind also that not all platformer games for your Android also support game controllers. This list actually includes a couple of games that do not support game pads. Sound off in the comments if you think I missed one or if you think this list is terrible.
