Top-Down games are a type of video game in which the view of the game is from a bird's eye view, looking down from above. This means that the player is seen from above or from an aerial perspective, allowing them to follow the action and the environment from above. This view is often used in different genres of games such as RPGs (role-playing), action games, strategy or arcade games. In addition to providing a good overview of the environment, this style of play often makes it easier to navigate and manage a character or situation because it allows players to see the bigger picture of the scene.
