Just Platformer is fine.

Existing genre tags are from PR (pre-release). This title is open for community voting still (until July 30th), and will have that result applied after that date (taking a glance at where things stand, I think this request is going to be what wins out, barring a seismic shift). However, the formal disagreement is dismissed as premature (since we're still in the community-voice stage of the process). Thanks!

Action-Platformer I think

As a matter of policy, Action is almost never used except as a standalone tag (the only exception I can think of has been Rocket League that got Action + Automobile). So, if the game ends up with Platformer, it'll just be Platformer to conform with that rule. Thanks!

ah ok, hadn't heard of that. I just figured it fit more with this compared to other platformers due to having to react to the ever changing platforms

Yeah, it wasn't the original plan, but given about 80% of games fell under any definition of Action that could be constructed, site management felt it better to treat it more like under the single-genre system and really just use it if nothing else fit. So we had to go through and make some mass changes to its application early in the multi-genre process.

Similar to Raskulls, arcade racing should be included.

The team has not found enough evidence to support this change, we have decided to just leave Platformer. Thanks for the submission!
