Games on Discrete Planes

What video games take place on multiple (but finite/not many) two-dimensional planes?

Some games are played mostly in two dimensions - you walk backwards and forwards and can jump or slide - but allow you to move between planes, usually just front/back or front/middle/back. I think there's a series of fighting games that does this, Guardian Heroes does it, and the earlier Tales games did it in combat.
I'm not really interested in games like Golden Axe, Double Dragon, or brawlers that do take place on multiple planes but not discretely separated ones.
I'm mostly curious if there's a platformer (say, with jumping puzzles) that has tried this, but for now I'm just collecting examples.
