HOL Genre 2.0 - Categories and Sub-Categories

Top Level Categories

Some of the top level categories have remained from the old system but some have been removed (e.g. Adult and Educational).

Duel is a new genre and was created for those games where the primary aim is to have a one-on-one duel (e.g. Spy vs Spy).

Games is for (computer) games based on (traditional) games e.g. circus games or board games.

Multi Type is for games with multiple genres (usually for each level).

Navigator represents those games where the chief objective is about travelling through an area avoiding obstacles (yes, I know that many games include this).

Reaction is for those games where quick reactions are paramount.

Utility was included to categorise utilities which are usually associated with a game.

Sub-Categories

The majority of new categorisation has happened in the sub-genres. The sub-genres attempt to break down sometimes massive genres into manageable groupings.

Can you please give details to differentiate between:
Quote:
Bat and ball - Hit Tiles
Bat and ball - Hit Tiles - Action
I have recently added such a game and used the first sub-category because I did not know if it was fit for the second .

The "Bat and ball - Hit Tiles - Action" is intended for Breakout clones where you hit a ball and also fire shots. It's a combination of bat & ball and shoot-'em-up.

I think that the differentiation originally arose when trying to categorise Snoball In Hell but perhaps there aren't enough examples of the ball/shooter sub-sub-genre to justify it.

Ok, thanks.

So I guess the firing shots part is something that you should be able to do from the beginning of the game or at least most of the game. And not an option that you can get during a level (like the laser in Arkanoid).

Am I correct? (I have not played Snoball in Hell)

Yes, the shooting is a core gameplay feature rather than a bonus ability.
