A rail shooter, or on-rails shooter, is a video game (typically a first-person shooter) in which the player does not control their movement, but rather movement is handled automatically with the player moving from point to point as the game progresses. The player focuses entirely on shooting enemies and targets, and oftentimes "shooting" performs other actions as well (for example, shooting at ammo pickups might pick up that ammo).
By their nature, these games are typically very linear, and they very often are horror games. Their trophies are also often quite difficult to earn.
