BLASPHEMY. Dude, for a full 5 years (1995-2000) platform games was the only genre I played. I'm dead fucking serious. It's just that when you've played to 100% completion (every single DK game both country and land plus the first 2 wario land games among them) the best games out there, everything else seams lacking.

Besides as I've already said, why should I waste my time playing Kid Chameleon when I could be playing Sonic/Mario/DK again :P.

I think I should suggest James Pond 2: Robocod anyway - you may have already tried it and dismissed it, but it is great IMO.

Aladdin is also great and has been mentioned, but it does have sword play and apple throwing.

Have you used the cheat to take the DK barrels away? - if you complete the Country games
under these circumstances you can get like 105%

I just got James Pond 2. Seemed like a rushed release (repeating random backgrounds? wtf?) Maybe I need to play a bit more of it or get to a boss or something.

I would recommend:

i don't know if you have a 32x, but tempo is a head jumping game. but since you hate every other platerformer besides mario and sonic you probably won't like it.

What about Bonkers for the Super Nintendo?

It's another Capcom platformer based on a Disney property. It features bouncing, dashing, and throwable bombs for some of the harder enemies. It's also pretty short, so you should be able to breeze through it.
