Shooters can be categorized into three main sub-genres: First Person Shooters, Third Person Shooters, and Hero Shooters.
- First-Person Shooters (FPS): FPS are played within the protagonist’s perspective; they often include a heads-up display showing key information such as the current health of the protagonist.
Example: MetaShooter, MetaOps, MetaStrike, …

Example: Nyan Heroes, GoldMiner, …
- Hero Shooters: Hero Shooters are either first- or third-person multiplayer shooters that emphasize pre-designed “hero” characters, with each possessing distinctive abilities and/or weapons that are specific to them. Hero shooters strongly encourage teamwork between players on a team, guiding players to select effective combinations of hero characters and coordinate the use of hero abilities during a match.
Example: Paladins, Overwatch, Valorant, …
Tower Defense is a subgenre of Strategy Games in which the goal is to defend the player’s land or constructions by arranging defensive structures or guardian characters with strategies to hinder enemies’ offensive troops or prevent them from reaching the exits, or sometimes destroy them. In modern days, many tower defense games are built with turn-based strategy features.
Example: WAGMI DEFENSE, Plant Vs Zombies, …
