I think Mutant Mudds is the other way around. 2D graphics, with 3D depth and gameplay. Kinda like that twin stick shooter with dinos with which the title i cant remember.

You should add Totem runner to the list.

Also Gunman Clive and Kid vector.

And Treemaker.

Just played Totem Runner, and it's just multilayered 2D.

Great call on Gunman Clive, Kid Vector and Treemaker.

I wouldnt have thought about Gunman Clive coz of the monochomatic style.

As for Kid Vector, UNCADE's Haunted Hallway, Blast Ball and upcoming Another Castle use the same 2.5D engine too
