2D games that went 3D?

Does anyone know of any iPhone apps that were originally 2D games, and then were revised to use 3D graphics?

Thank you.

A late game is only late until it ships. A bad game is bad until the end of time.

Lots of Pong and Pong remakes did. Way harder to play Pong in 3d IMO

Specifically ... I'm looking for a iPhone title from a publisher that the publisher later released (as a new product or upgrade) that took the iOS title to 3D from 2D.

But you were right on the PONG games. PacMan also suffered a similar fate.

Can you tell us anything about what it looked like or anything about the gameplay?

Tower Runner comes to mind.

Not a game that was 2d but went 3d but 1-bit Ninja can be played in both ways.

Dropped iPhone 6 on live tv. Became a viral sensation.
