As much a trope in and of itself as it is a category.

Videogames, especially Platform Games, take place in a wide variety of different environments. As time has gone by, some of these environments tend to get used quite regularly. Many are more common to one genre than others, while some are almost universal, taking different forms depending on the genre. These almost always have their own style of music to match the level theme.

See also Law of Cartographical Elegance. Not to be confused with the kind of settings which alter some aspects of the game.
