Action-adventure game

The action-adventure genre is a video game genre that combines core elements from both the action game and adventure game genres.

Action-adventure is a hybrid genre and can include many games which might better be categorized under more narrow genres. Typically, pure adventure games have situational problems for the player to solve, with very little or no action. If there is action, it is generally confined to isolated minigames. Pure action games have gameplay based on real-time interactions that challenge the reflexes. Therefore, action-adventure games engage both reflexes and problem-solving in both violent and non-violent situations.
