As the title suggests, I am wondering if it's possible to emulate a 3d arrow trajectory to a top-down 2d game? If you would look at this clip of Age of Empires 2 game, especially when archers are firing from bottom to top. Can the parabola/arc of the trajectory (in that certain view angle) be emulated in a 2d orthographic, top-down game? So that the arrows would look like they're in 3d space. I know it's tricky but I wonder if there's some computation available for this.
If you could point me in the right direction or some sample code I would be very grateful. I've only implemented this projectile motion in a side-scroll view.
Thank you in advance.
