Hack and Slash


Games with hack and slash gameplay focus on combat with hand-to-hand weapons as opposed to guns, even though the presence of guns as additional weapons does not exclude the use of the genre. It is predominately used in action role-playing games and action games with RPG elements.

  • Beat 'em ups / Brawlers (think Streets of Rage) and Fighting games (think Street Fighter) have their own, specific genre and do not use this one.

  • Hack and slash games are often played from an bird's-eye or behind view because there is strategy to the combat. Typically, side-scrolling 2D platformers do not receive this genre because of the straightforward combat, unless there is an extensive amount of depth to the mechanics.

  • Popular examples of games using Hack and slash gameplay are the Diablo games, the Devil May Cry series and the God of War games.
