A Parallax is used in a lot of games and most times you won’t even notice until you focus. Parallax Scrolling is used to create a certain atmosphere within a game; the use of this aesthetic style can increase the rate of movement of the character and also enhance game play. I really like games that feature Parallax Scrolling as it makes the game unique and also some games use the parallax scrolling towards their advantage as enemies can be included in one of the layers/backgrounds and also some games give the chance for the player to take the character into the background; therefore making parallax scrolling go from a game aesthetic to a game mechanic as the character is interacting with the background.

Games that feature parallax scrolling include Abes Oddysee, Hercules, Little Big Planet, Stick Hero, Mickey and the Castle of Illusion, Mario and Sonic etc.
