Hi Dark,
Yeah, aside from jumping up to attack bats Q9 strictly moves on a 1d plane that is left to right. More traditional 2d games like MOTA at least includes an element of vertical up/down movement as well. Shades of Doom also is only 2d because there is only an x and y axis of movement. A true 3d game has an x, y, and z axis of movement or six primary directions of movement with several others in between.

Hi philip.

Strictly speaking tthat is not 3D.

A 2D game uses vertical and horizontal dimentions, --- -ie, moving left to right, and up and down. Strictly speaking, only mota, ---- and possibly the trees level of tarzan jr with the stream are 2D, sinse they are the only games which allow moving to levels above or below the currently playing area.

Games like Q9, and superliam, ---- fun though they are, are probably in the stricted deffinitional sense 1D, as they only go left to right.

Beware the grue!
