Alternate names: flick-screen, page-flipping

The first video game about Flip-screens was released in 1980.

The Learning Company, Opera Soft and Brøderbund has published most of these games

This is not by default edge scrolling but can be depending how it is implemented (flipping itself implies not).

This is NOT synonym for games where the whole level/map takes a single screen which is changed with level change.
