What is a 2D Game?

2D video games feature flat graphics, called sprites, and two-dimensional geometry.

 

These games only contain horizontal and vertical movements.

Typically, 2D games are linear, with the only objective being to reach the end of the level.

2D games use a simple camera, with it often looking straight at the game from the side.

 

This is where Tags come in.
