Side Scrolling Shooter
Best Example: Gunstar Heroes [Sega Genesis]
with a remake for the Game Boy Advance, and remastered to the Wii Virtual Console, and Nintendo 3DS
This game is comprised with a game character typically from a variety of 2-3 characters to choose from. The controls are simple D-Pad with its up,down,left right, a shoot button, a jump button, and a change weapon button.
The Mechanics of the game is simple much like a survial shooter game where you shoot your way to the end of the Level, There are some little hindraces like a mini Boss or a certain task to complete before moving on to the next part of the Stage. The player selects a weapon type (i.e. laser, rifle, bazooka.. etc.)
This could be lengthy to finish with its different Stages just like in Gunstar Heroes that has 4 initial stages to chose from before going to Space aboard a spaceship (Spaceship is side scroller too). So the Initial game would probably have at least 4-5 short levels.
It would be much fun if the Player could join his/her weapons and combine it to form another weapon for more firepower. or a combination of the elements
fire and fire = lightning
earth and earth = metal
earth and fire = lava
just like avatar LOL haha

Short Levels consisting of hordes of enemies to shoot, punch, kick etc.

Final Boss awaits the Last Level
Two player / Multi-Player / Co-op Mode - Teamplay and Real time tactics combined to finish the Stage
In Story Mode, Another player's Death can cause the partners Life to be halved for faster respawn and not to spoil the pacing of the gameplay.
Survival Mode (how long can a player last with just a single health bar)
Two player PVP (Last Stand- players try to shoot each other in a level with diferent platforms for real time Tactics)
This game is Best for killing time and if a multi player mode / two player mode is made, It's fun to play family or with a friend.
