I know that the general advice to play games you liked as a kid and grew up with but the only two games I grew up as a kid were new super Mario bros and black and white. I don't want to speedrun black and white because the record is over 3 hours so is there any good 2d platformer games that don't take too long to speedrun (about 1 hour or less)

Sword of Sodan for Genesis. One of the best platformers ever made!

Literally every main series 2D Mario game can be easily beaten in under an hour

May I plug Isis Simulator, runs only take about a minute 15 seconds.
