* ''VideoGame/Doom'' mapspace will "wrap around" when reaching the borders, though no official map ever extends this far. This can be seen using no clipping; running in one direction away from the game world will eventually result in the player approaching it again from the other side. Player-made maps can take advantage of this though a level of such size can cause issues in some ports of the game. Additionally, strange effects occur at the "border" of the mapspace, notably with monster pathfinding not considering the open border of the mapspace to be a valid pathway.

* Levels 8 and 10 of ''VideoGame/DangerousDave'' feature open pits at the bottom of the screen that, when you fall through them, drop you atop the ceiling of the level. This is, in fact, necessary to complete those levels.

* All the ''[[Main/RPGMaker RPG Makers]]'' have the option to create maps that loop horizontally or vertically or in both directions. This feature is oddly absent in RPG Maker XP, but thankfully there are scripts for this.

It's also generally suggested to be used for TheLostWoods to give the illusion of being definitely, positively lost.

* Some of the invaders in the ''SpaceInvaders Extreme'' series wrap around right-to-left, descending a little lower as they do so.

* ''Scorched Earth'' lets you change the behaviour of the walls, including making them act like concrete (missiles explode when they hit it), padded (missiles bounce off slower), rubber (bounce off at same speed), spring (bounce off '''faster'''), and of course, [=wraparound=].

Added DiffLines:

** Notable in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyI'' in that ''all'' maps featured this, not just the world map. Most maps had "exit tiles" set in places that prevented the effect from being visible but at least one town allowed the player to see back to where they came in if they went far enough to the right and one dungeon treasure required walking down a narrow corridor to the right to get back to the far left of the map.

* In the {{MSX}} version of ''VideoGame/{{Parodius}}'', one of the powerups simply turns left-right [=wraparound=] on for 30 seconds. In a stroke of game design genius, this power is required to get past a [[DeadlyWalls solid impassable wall]] in the last stage.
