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.
Achievements are extra challenges added into video games that sometimes carry a point value or unlock bonus material, and are sometimes solely for bragging rights.
Apple's Game Center service brings matchmaking, achievements, and friend lists to games that choose to support it.
Usually seen in 3D platformers, these games ask you to collect certain objects to open up additional levels.
The concept of purchasing media and having it delivered over the internet. No physical representation of this content is given, and although the content resides on the user's hard drive they are typically granted a license to the product, rather than ownership of it.
Games where the player character is constantly running.
It's arguably the one move that symbolizes the medium to those outside it. The ability to jump, be it onto a building, a platform, or a skull, is one of the all time most important abilities ever put in a video game.
A leaderboard is a way for players of any multi-player game to know where they rank within the game's community.
Characters who possess the ability to "fly", but only for a limited time or by gradually descending.
While most games feature achievements with gamerscore values in multiples of five, not all games do so.
Options menus give you the option to change anything the game lets you change. Whether you want subtitles or not, sound effects or not, the game to be harder or not, anything you want that the game lets you change, you can change in the options menu.
Games whose main character is so egotistical that the whole game just HAS to be named after them.
A game that takes gameplay mechanics, characters, or story elements from an existing series in a separate and different direction, sometimes changing genres along the way.
The act of traversing space while attached to a piece game geometry. Sometimes via a rope, or other grapple like object.
Games that are controlled partially or entirely with a touch screen.
Created in part by Michel Ancel, UBIart is a development platform that aims to "limit the repetitive tasks to keep the team as small as possible and to keep it happy"
Extra objects, characters, or content in a game that can only be accessed after completing a certain task such as completing the game, or by using cheat codes.
Also known as a triangle jump, this is the ability to hit a wall and propel yourself off of it like you were some kind of crazy ninja or parkour fiend.
Microsoft's application storefront introduced in Windows 8.
