Shoot 'em up is a genre of computer games in which the main gameplay focus is on shooting, such that other aspects of the game are often simplified to facilitate this
In an action game, the player typically controls the avatar of a protagonist. The avatar must navigate a level, collecting objects, avoiding obstacles, and battling enemies with various attacks. At the end of a level or group of levels, the player must often defeat a large boss enemy that is larger and more challenging than other enemies.

Since 2010, a variety of endless running platformers for mobile devices have brought renewed popularity to the genre.
