1D games

'' What's this? A one dimensional game? Impossible!
That's how most people have reacted. Yes, a game in only one-D. Not 2D, not 3D, but 1D.
I thought about it and thought it jack. Everyone argues that having it even a single pixel wide would make it the second dimension. Some people argued that it was even, along with every game, in the fourth dimension, Time. But nay!
You see, the thing is, a game that classifies as 2D is only that because that's the depth of the imagery. Sure, on paper, if you draw an image, you call it 2D. And you know why you discard the fact it's actually 3D, that there's an actual depth to the paper itself? Because there's no change to the image through the third dimension.

''  In 1992, Wolfenstein 3-D revolutionized video games and created the 3D first-person shooter genre. Now, after decades of development, Wolfenstein 3-D has been converted to breathtaking, epoch-making 1-D. You can now play the game in a single, dazzling one-pixel line.  '' [source]

'' 1D Game idea came up when chating with my friend. We tought that a game that can be played in just 1 dimension would be interesting. It doesnt offer fun or true gaming experience, altough it took just couple of hours to make. '' [source]

'' Ever wondered how would it be to see everything through a scanner, one line at a time?
In Eye-Scan the challenge is to discover exactly what is hidden behind the single line you can see from an object being scanned.
Hidden objects can be letters, numbers, symbols, shapes, anything you imagine!
