Platform[edit]

Further information: Platform games

This action sub-genre typically entails side-scrolling levels with the player jumping or climbing from one on-screen platform to the next. Starting with Super Mario World, one of the first two games available for the Super Famicom system, and a pack-in game for the Super Nintendo, the platform genre saw a large number of releases for this family of systems.

Shooter[edit]

Further information: Shooter games

This Action sub-genre involves firing at enemies in one form or another, whether through hand-held weapons, or vehicle-mounted artillery.

Adventure[edit]

The action adventure and adventure genres have been combined on the page linked here. The Adventure games for Nintendo tended to be more of the point-and-click variety, as the Nintendo did not have a good interface for text adventure games. Action adventure games listed here include some games that have minimal RPG elements, but not enough to classify them as full RPG's, like the Zelda series.

Puzzle[edit]

Further information: Puzzle video game

Puzzle games consist primarily of solving some form of puzzle. This may involve placing blocks into a form in specified patterns, like Tetris, or any of a number of other challenges. The player may need to perform actions in a specified time limit, or may have unlimited time to act, and the game mechanics may allow for multiple players, but the main focus is solving the puzzle. For games that balance puzzle elements with platform elements (like Lemmings or The Lost Vikings), look for the puzzle sub-genre under Platform games.

Role-playing[edit]

Further information: Role-playing game

This category covers categories of Role-Playing games, including Tactical Role-Playing games. Some games with only minor RPG elements may be classified in Action Adventure games.

Simulation[edit]

Further information: Simulation video game

Although every game could be described as a simulation, this genre is reserved for management or lifestyle simulations. This could mean managing a theme park, city, or world, or managing social relationships.

Sports[edit]

Further information: Sports game

This category covers all depictions of any sports game. This includes games that either depict the playing of a sport or the management of a sports team(s). Racing games involving vehicles are covered under vehicular simulation.

Strategy[edit]

Further information: Strategy video game

This category covers all combat-related strategy games. Tactical RPG's are listed in the RPG area, For other types of strategic games, see Construction and Management Simulation or Other Notable Genres / Puzzle.

Traditional[edit]

This category covers gameplay similar to non-computer games. Games based on basic board-style games (whether existing in the real world, or made specifically for SFC/SNES), gambling games, and game show style games can all be found here. Educational games are also clustered in this genre.

Vehicle simulation[edit]

This category covers games that simulate driving or utilizing a vehicle. Racing games, flight simulators, and other vehicle simulations can all be found here.
