Genre: Rail shooter

Group Description

A 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.

Limitations
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.
