Alternate name: Heat distortion

The first video game about Heat haze was released in 2005.

Ubisoft, Over the Top Games and THQ has published most of these games

In modern games this is usually a shader effect. In older games this is either pre-rendered animation or a pixel displacement effect (by wobbling/misaligning whole lines of pixels horizontally in a wave-like motion).
