I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.

No, it's just background/foreground movement.

Technically it's 3D but the gamplay is strictly 2D style.

And a platformer is classified based on its gameplay mechanic, not its visual style. Well, except for the dorks trying to push the stupid term "2.5D".

Don't get me started on that 2.5D nonsense. Throw it in with 4D while we're at it.

man, did you know the Commodore 64 has a game called 4D Boxing? It's a freakin' overhead view and looks like 2 u-nails with baubles fighting each other.

The hell is 4D about that!!!!
