Run & gun video games are a sub-genre of shoot 'em ups, in which the player generally controls a lone gunman as they travel on foot through levels defeating enemies. Run and Gun games are often defined as a mix between platformers and shoot 'em ups, are generally side-scrollers, and are notable for often featuring enjoyable co-operative gameplay. Run & gun video games have essentially faded into obscurity with the evolution of 3D video games, but in a sense, still live on in the widely-popular genres of first and Third-person shooters.
