More About 2D Browser Games
The 2D Browser Games require much fewer resources to run, and the process of their development is quite easy, but at the same time, it requires hard work of artists and designers. 2D graphics are usually hand-drawn, especially pixel ones, where even the smallest details of sprites are made with meticulous attention; also, these games can use any flat picture as a sprite, which allows making the most vivid and unusual projects. Since two-dimensional games are not so demanding as 3D analogues, this visual style is often used in browser projects, which can be released in any genre and setting — from RPGs to strategies.
One of the most popular styles of two-dimensional graphics is 2.5D. It can be released in the form of a side-scroller, or isometric projection. The main feature of these 2D Browser Games is that they released in full 2D, and the three-dimensional effect is reached with several visual tricks, such as a specific angle of view and correctly drawn sprites. Pseudo-3D projects can use pixel graphics, usual raster sprites, or combined style of graphics. Another popular image method uses a top-down perspective, which is more close to an ordinary 2D image, but with an opportunity to make a more detailed world of the game.
Many 2D Browser Games are released in the form of a side-scroller. These games look like a plane picture, sometimes with a detailed background, which gives the depth for the graphics. In side-scrolling games, your character can move only to the right or left part of the screen, sometimes with an opportunity to jump and perform other actions, which changes the position of the hero on a lower or higher spot.
