Arcade

The subgenre Arcade on MobyGames does not refer to games that originated as arcade machines, but to action games with very simple gameplay interaction similar to coin-op arcade games. These games usually require little puzzle solving or tactical thinking and rely solely on the “twitch” gameplay.

Simple and straightforward gameplay is not the only feature, there has to be an element of loop based gameplay (variations of similar patterns are repeated many times and the player progresses through repetition and mastering them) and risk/reward based on a time limit or combo/score focused gameplay.
