Add a parallax effect to our games can be a great feature for create a new environment for the player, but how they work?
The parallax is the angular deviation of the apparent position of an object depending of the chosen point of view, for example, when you are driving your car, you watch the street and you see a bunch of objects that suffers a different parallax effect depending the point of view that you have referenced to them.
