The term Two Dimensional or 2D means having two dimensions, in the case of a video game height and width. Short of displaying an incomprehensible pixel-wide line, this is the simplest form of video game graphics. Games started with two dimensional graphics, from Pong units to Super Mario Bros. 3 on the NES. Since the advancement into 3D graphics, games with 2D graphcis have become increasingly rare, though not totally extinct. They are still prominent in handheld systems as well as mobile games.
