An action game is a video game genre that emphasizes physical challenges, including hand–eye coordination and reaction-time. The genre includes a large variety of sub-genres, such as fighting games, beat'em ups, shooter games and platform games. Multiplayer online battle arena and some real-time strategy games are considered action games. In an action game, the player controls a character in the form of a protagonist or avatar; this player character must navigate a level, collecting objects, avoiding obstacles, battling enemies with their natural skills as well as weapons and other tools at their disposal. At the end of a level or group of levels, the player must defeat a boss enemy, more challenging and a major antagonist in the game's story. Enemy attacks and obstacles deplete the player character's health and lives, the player receives a game over when they run out of lives. Alternatively, the player gets to the end of the game by finishing a sequence of levels to complete a final goal, see the credits.
But some action games, such as early arcade games, are unbeatable and have an indefinite number of levels. The action genre includes any game where the player overcomes challenges by physical means such as precise aim and quick response times. Action games can sometimes incorporate other challenges such as races, puzzles, or collecting objects, but they are not central to the genre. Players may encounter tactical and exploration challenges, but these games first-and-foremost require high reaction speed and good hand–eye coordination; the player is under time pressure, there is not enough time for complex strategic planning. In general, faster action games are more challenging. Action games may sometimes involve puzzle solving, but they are quite simple because the player is under immense time pressure. Players advance through an action game by completing a series of levels. Levels are grouped by theme, with similar graphics and enemies called a world; each level involves a variety of challenges, whether dancing in a dance game or shooting things in a shooter, which the player must overcome to win the game.
Older games force players to restart a level after dying, although action games evolved to offer saved games and checkpoints to allow the player to restart partway through a level. Though, some games allow for'resurrection' or'cloning' and the opportunity to regain lost items upon death for a certain sum of ingame currency increasing exponentially the more times the player dies; the obstacles and enemies in a level do not vary between play sessions, allowing players to learn by trial and error. However, levels sometimes add an element of randomness, such as an enemy that randomly appears or that takes an unpredictable path. Levels in an action game may be linear or nonlinear, sometimes include shortcuts. For levels that require exploration, the player may need to search for a level exit, hidden or guarded by enemies; such levels can contain secrets—hidden or hard-to-reach objects or places that contain something valuable. The prize can be a bonus or a non-standard exit that allows a player to access a hidden level, or jump ahead several levels.
Action games sometimes offer a teleporter that will cause the player's avatar to re-appear elsewhere in the same level. Levels make use of locked doors that can only be opened with a specific key found elsewhere in the level. Action games sometimes make use of time restrictions to increase the challenge. However, game levels do not react to time passing, day/night cycles are rare; when the timer expires, the player loses a life, although some games generate a difficult enemy or challenge. If the level is completed with time remaining, this adds to the player's score. In most action games, the player controls a single avatar as the protagonist; the avatar has the ability to navigate and maneuver, collects or manipulates objects. They have a range such as shooting or punching. Many action games make use of a powerful attack that destroys all enemies within a limited range, but this attack is rare. Players may find a power-up within the game world that grants temporary or permanent improvements to their abilities.
For example, the avatar may gain an increase in speed, more powerful attacks, or a temporary shield from attacks. Some action games allow players to spend upgrade points on the power ups of their choice. In action games that involve navigating a space, players will encounter obstacles and enemies. Enemies follow fixed patterns and attack the player, although newer action games may make use of more complex artificial intelligence to pursue the player. Enemies sometimes appear in groups or waves, with enemies increasing in strength and number until the end of the level. Enemies may appear out of thin air; this can involve an invisible spawn point, or a visible generator which can be destroyed by the player. These points may generate enemies only up to a certain number. At the end of a level or group of themed levels, players encounter a boss; this boss enemy will resemble a larger or more difficult version of a regular enemy. A boss may require a special weapon or attack method, such as striking when the boss opens their mouth or attacking particular part of the Boss.
In many action games, the avatar has a certain number of hit-markers or health, which are depleted by enemy attacks and other hazards. Sometimes health can be replenished by collecting an in-game object; when the player runs out of health, the player dies. The player's avatar is given a small number of chances to retry
