The Radial Menu wiki last edited by BeachThunder on 01/31/14 06:05AM View full history

Overview

Radial menus tend to appear mostly in console games, in genres with traditionally heavy menus such as strategy or RPG. The radial menu, used in conjunction with the analogue stick, allows quick access to a large number of menu options with a small number of button presses. Both left and right analogue sticks are used in conjunction with menus in different games but the right stick is more commonly used.

Largely originating from console RPG's, such as the Mana series, radial menus have often been used as a solution to the problem of porting PC-based genres to consoles, with prominent examples including Halo Wars, Command and Conquer: Red Alert 3, Tom Clancy's EndWar, and Stormrise.
