Turn-based

Description

In turn-based games the flow of play is well-defined (entirely or partially) into "turns". A player has time to decide what his/her next move will be. The computer AI opponent (or the next human player) then gets time to make their move(s).

Most turn-based games belong to the strategy genre. Turn-based is also a very common form of combat in role-playing games. RPGs may be considered turn-based even though their combat is sporadic, and the actual exploration is not divided into turns.
