Sure, these days have almost every game sporting the newfangled 3D, but way back when, everyone had to live with plain old 2D. 2D, or two dimensions, limit the game to scrolling backgrounds, but some games even now make use of this basic concept.
Winged, usually flying creatures, many of which enjoy perching on branches and defecating on unfortunate victims below.
Feline animals commonly kept as pets. There are many different breeds and varieties.
A remake/re-imagining of a game that uses lower fidelity assets, due to a deliberate design choice.
Digging is a strategic mechanic of many games. Digging allows the ability to unearth valuables and strategize pathways.
These prehistoric behemoths cause chaos amongst many. Unfortunately, they are extinct.
A fire breathing dragon that lives underground. One of the two enemy types from Dig-Dug.
These spooky entities are the spirits of the dead, returned from beyond their graves for generally sinister purposes. There's generally about even odds whether a particular ghost will be helpful or malevolent towards the living, but some ghosts just want to be left alone entirely.
Inflation is when you expand or fill up something with something else, usually air, to make it more full or bigger. Some mini-games have you be the first to completely inflate a balloon, or, in the case of Dig-Dug, you inflate monsters to have them explode!
The concept of lives in video games evolved to let the player get a second chance after failing once. The most recognizable symbol is the heart.
Ever since Pac-Man, games have had us navigating mazes.
A small animal that digs tunnels and mostly feeds on earthworms.
A mouse is a small rodent with a tail and whiskers.
A two-dimensional image or animation overlaid into a scene. The foundation of early 2D games, making up everything from props to the player-controlled character.
Vampires are undead, nocturnal creatures that subsist on blood. They have superhuman powers and are sometimes able to shape-shift. They are weak against sunlight, foreign objects stuck in and left in their hearts, decapitation and sometimes holy water and crosses.
Zombies, more accurately called the walking dead, are reanimated corpses who feed on the living, and have become a ubiquitous video game enemy. They often move slowly, but can be deadly in large numbers, which is unfortunately how they tend to travel. Shotgun time!
