Genre: Chase-view / Space Harrier-style shooter

Group Description

This group contains shooters viewed from a perspective behind the player character as he automatically advances forward on a pre-defined path through pseudo- or real 3D environment. As opposed to rail shooters, the player character can move freely around the screen to shoot at or dodge enemies and other dangerous objects. The player has little or no ability to affect the movement speed.

This genre was given particular attention by Sega, starting with Buck Rogers: Planet of Zoom (1982), and popularized by Space Harrier (1985).

To be eligible for this group, the player character must be both visible and controllable -- games where the character moves automatically and the player only needs to aim are classified as rail shooters and belong in that group.
