    How would an endless runner look if all assets were 3D? Out of curiosity, granted we can't make a 3D game with BB.

    Although I do imagine an Isometric game with 3D Art would be pretty neat.

    3D graphics look great in 2D games as it gives you the opportunity to create additional depth using shading and lighting. Any images that are just a few degrees off a 2D axis provide the illusion of 3D, which is often referred to as 2.5D, which you see all the time in isometric and trimetric games.

    just make sure all your shading and lighting are at a consistent angle or it will look messy

    Isometric is fine but personally I believe 2D is the better approach if your building with Buildbox.
