Beat 'em up games (also known as brawlers) are part of a very old video game genre originating from arcade. Typical beat’em up’s feature hand-to-hand combat between the hero (player’s character) and a hugely disproportionate number of various enemies. Games of this genre typically do take place in urban settings and feature crime-fighting plots, though some games may also employ fantasy or sci-fi themes. Traditional beat 'em ups take place in 2D levels, scrolling from right to left.
Beat’em up games are noted for their simplistic design and intuitive gameplay. Another hallmarks of the genre are cooperative mode and multiple player characters. All time beat’em up classics include such gems as Golden Axe, Streets of Rage, and Double Dragon. The most recent beat’em up games are Guacamelee!, Shank (both mixed with platformers), Devil May Cry, and God of War (both mixed with 3D hack and slash).
