Basic Information

Terminology

Rail shooter video games are video games in which the player does not manually control their own movement. The in-game character moves for themselves, with objects moving in and out of the screen, as if it were "on rails". Turns and paths are pre-determined, though some video games give the player an option on which path to go down.
