First person 2D games?

I was just wondering (for reasons I can't explain) if there are any 2D first person non-turnbased games where you can move your character. The only game I can think of is Year walk... I'm just wondering if any developers came out with some other interesting designs.

Gun commando. It's a retro FPS.

As said, I'm not looking for turn-based games. And... Those two are also 3D.

Again, I'm not looking for any specific genre or gameplay. The game must be:
- 2D
- first person
- non turn-based
- the character must move (doesn't matter how you control it)

I think people are not getting what 3D and what 2D games are.........

How can a first person game possibly be 2D?

This. all you would see in a 2D first person game would be a infinitely thin line.
