DescriptionUsed to describe any game where the main setting of gameplay involves the player character moving from one side of the playfield to the other horizontally for a length of time. The screen may scroll to the opposite direction continuously, or just when the player character reaches the edge of the screen, enlarging the area or opening a new one. Side-scrolling perspective is often entirely two-dimensional; however, some side-scrolling games (particularly beat-'em-ups) may allow limited movement into the depth of the screen. Side-scrolling perspective is common for most 2D platformers, as well as many 2D shooters and action games in general.
