If we lived in a world with 2 spatial dimensions, would the solution to Poisson's equation for a singular charge be the same i.e. would it be 1/r radial dependence?

I am doing a computer simulation and if I take out the third dimension, the results are manifestly different.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
