What We Found
Over the time we did our brainstorm (que ding and lightbulb) we found that there weren't many games that did what we are going to do. That said, we plan on making a 2D sidescrolling runner with multiple lanes. During my explorations (I'm an Interent Explorer HAHAHA puny). I found mostly and mainly 2D runners that ran in only one lane. There was one that a know before that was developed by Riot games and went by the name of Poro Grab (I know because I played it. Riot and League of Legends fan here). The goal of the game was to avoid Baron and grab the Poros which were cute little critters from being caught by Baron. There were many other runners like Temple Run (a nightmare to make in 3D space) and Jet Pack Joyride (loved it) but I think I'm going to have to look for some code (yes, we coders do cheat. We don't just poof these things into our head you know.) and alter it a bit adding in a control to switch between lanes.
