- MOBILITY SHOOTERS REFERENCE SHEET -
Mobility shooters are games that emphasize fast movement. These games may include platforming and techniques to go even faster. For example, Quake 1 counts due to bunnyhopping and an emphasis on platforming, meanwhile Doom 4 (2016) is not included due to having a comparatively slow basic movement speed.
This is not set in stone, and should not be treated as gospel.
MULTI = multiplayer as a main focus or well received multiplayer
BOT = offline bot game support
SOLO = has single player that isn't bots
MOD = has a notable modding scene
DL = Unofficial programs or ports are recommended for the features listed here.
