What is a 2D Game ?


2D video games have graphics, called sprites, that appear flat on the screen and a camera that has no perspective.

In the early days of gaming 2D made sense with consoles having limited power compared to modern comparisons. With their limited graphics, 2D games found a place for themselves, and were often single-screen games, such as the 1980s Donkey Kong arcade game featuring Mario as “Jumpman”.

The early 2D games would feature a set of challenges that, once completed, would change the screen or field, to the next, where often the player would repeat the process until they lose all their lives, and the game would end.

Over the years, 2D games developed into the more traditional platformers that we see today, mostly due to the great success of games such as Super Mario Bros and Super Mario All-Stars.

It’s not just platformers that can be traced back to these origins. Fighting games such as Street Fighter, side-scrolling beat ‘em ups like Streets of Rage continue to be successful franchises in 2D.

2D games continue to thrive, even with modern graphics and the demand for more complex games. The recent success of Hollow Knight, a great example of a 2D game done right, is a testament to the love we have for 2D games.

Why Are We Doing a Top 15 2D Game List?

In the world of 2D Games, fantastic games can be found at incredible prices but you can also be at a greater risk of being left disappointed.

Not all games reach their potential and get a release, unfortunately many games are left abandoned by their developers or are even released in a poor state and are yet still available to purchase on Steam.

Steam is in the business of selling games and sometimes that can mean a drop in quality in order to get more titles onto the Steam Store and available for purchase.

At Allkeyshop, we believe in quality over quantity and because of that we use every bit of data that Steam offers and we use that to provide the most detailed analysis of a game’s ranking.

How Do We Get Our Rankings?

Our rankings will take all available pieces of data into account, in particular we focus on the real ratings, real opinions and recommendations of those that play the game.

As a part of our ranking, we ensure that only those that own the game, have it currently available in their library and are logged into their account can vote for their favourite games. This, along with our other data, ensures we have the most accurate ranking system possible.

We only show the top 15 games so that you are not overwhelmed with hundreds of games and swamped in too much data. We plan on refreshing our top 15 each week, but we may change this plan if we find it has a real demand from you, our users.

Allkeyshop is a price comparator site with the intention of giving players the best price possible for the best games available. We remain fully impartial on prices and sellers, displaying both online sites and platforms such Steam, Origin and Epic, and we remain completely impartial on the rating of those games that we highlight in our rankings.

Our rankings are based on our users with no influence from us and we will remain impartial on the ratings and the rankings of all games.
