Alternate names: Fake platforms, Illusory surfaces
Name variations: quicksand

The first video game about Fake surfaces was released on December 1988.

Nintendo and Capcom has published most of these games

These exist either as traps, as fairly realistic quicksand, or access routes to secret areas much like illusory walls do.

Unlike disappearing platforms these offer no foothold even for a nanosecond, because they are not really there.
