I beg to differ with you about Shades of Doom, Sarah, etc being 3d.
Technically they are not 3d. Although they are FPS games they have 3d
audio systems, but the movement still is restricted to an x/y axis. None
of the games have an x, y, and z axis of movement making them only 2d in
nature. If you want to count how many true 3d games we have the answer
is 0. We don't have any, because true 3d movement and game worlds have
never been done yet by any developer for the VI gaming community. That
is one reason I am so excited to actually do it once the Genesis engine
is created. No one besides me has been willing to step forward and take
this next step in audio game development.
I'm afraid this confuses me a litle.
Thus far, the only serious side scroller we've got with full 2D
vertical movement is Mota.
Q9 Tarzan jr and superliam are fun games, ---- but they aren't
precisely on a level with side scrollers even of the late 1980's such
as mega man or mario brothers.
3D games we have shades of doom, audio quake, terraformers, sarah, gma
Tank commander and monkey business, ---- pluss, depending upon your
deffinition treasurehunt and night of parasite (though i'd personally
class those as top down rather than 3D owing to the movement system
and lack of character perspective)..
while i certainly agree adding another to the list would not be a bad
thing, ----- basic arithmetic shows that we certainly don't! have more
side scrollers than 3D games.
beware the Grue!
