Question: Which would you be more likely to use.
Option 2: A 2d game from the view point of the character.
I cant decide so i am just asking.(I wanted to do a casio prizm emulator but i dont have the patience to go all the way.)
Number 2 is a platformer with a 1d viewpoint.(In a 3d world you see a 2d picture so in a 2d world you would see a 1d picture.)
dimensions of viewport = dimensions of the world your in - 1
This is because the surface area has the same property. d surface = d world - 1
In mario you view things from outside the world with a 1d viewpoint this would be a 1st person 2d game.
Hmm... though choise... both could be cool
To be honest I am unsure if I get what you mean by 1d and 2d stuff. I personally used to calling Mario 2D as side-scrolling, Zelda as top-down view and Duck Hunt as First-Person 2D shooter. In the case of 3D games, games like Tomb Raider are 3rd-person shooters and Doom is 1st person.
Would the 2nd option be like first person shooters and strategy games, but in 2D? And would it be side-scrolling or top-down? I'M definitively interested by a new game.
But 1D can have only one axis how would you use it?
It's not that hard to imagine ._.
Oh I get it :P, something just clarifies itself when you reread it 3 times :P
I guess if a game was literally 1D then it could simply be a rhythm game. :P
CW Contest v2? :P
