Dimetric Tiles are diamond shaped due to their use of Dimetric Projection. In the video game industry, these are referred to as Isometric, even though this a misnomer, as true Isometric Tiles are more rare than Dimetric Tiles. In true Isometric projection, foreshortening for all three axes is equal. In Dimetric, only two axes are foreshortened equally.
