Is Platformer Template a real game or just a game template?

Both! Because there is no better way to teach that to put the principles in practice, immediately. Questions like: Why was this level not introduced before? or What is new in this level? or Could any element be removed while preserving the desired effect? should guide your attention while playing.

Is Platformer Template a meta-game?

Many people would agree with that description.

Does it mean it's easier than other games?

Don't be fooled by the first few levels - Platformer Template is built step by step.
