Genre: Rail shooter
Group DescriptionA rail shooter is a specific kind of shooter game. In these games, the player only controls a cross-hair or uses a weapon shaped controller to fire at on-screen enemies and hazards. The player moves along a prerecorded path through the levels. In other words, the player is "on rails" and cannot decide where to go. In some rail shooters, the player might have a limited influence into which direction the character moves at junctions.
While most rail shooters feature a first person perspective, this isn't mandatory. Games where the player character is able to move are not rail shooters.
Some shooters show the player in a third person perspective moving along a predefined path, but in addition also allow the player to move his avatar all over (or parts of) the screen. Such games belong to the chase-view shooter genre and should not be included in this group.
This group is only for games which feature only this type of game play. Some shooter games might offer a single level in which the path is predefined. These games are excluded from the group.
