181 found doing a quick search on AL's database - there's probably more but we've not found and categorised them all ... yet!

My favourites:

Rainbow Islands
Bubble Bobble
Lode Runner

Some good 'uns:

New Zealand Story
STario

The ST was never well known for its Platformers, but these are all well worth a go. Also, wasn't there a Droid 2?

EDIT: Another Bitmap platformer: Magic Pockets.

Axel's Magic Hammer is also nice (as soon as you get used to the somewhat quirky controls).
