A graph is called planar if it can be drawn in the plane without any edge intersections; see planar graph.
Planar graphics were used a lot in the 80s and early 90s because displays tended to only be able to show fewer than 256 colours.
Planar graphics are also easier to scroll than chunky graphics in hardware, which is why systems like the Commodore Amiga were able to move large playfields around with little effort.
