Interactive fiction is a format that uses text to describe characters and objects within a setting, and the use of a parser to interpret text typed by the player, allowing the player to interact with the characters and objects within the setting.
An on-rails game behaves much like a train: while sometimes the player can choose which path he goes down, he cannot deviate from it. Sometimes on-rails games even go so far as to decide when the player moves.
Non-linear level design where the player is able to freely traverse the game world and choose where and when to visit certain areas in the game.
A shooter in which the player movement is restricted so they can only follow a linear, predetermined path. This style of game is considered very "arcadey" and is usually accompanied by a lightgun.
Games that have an open gameplay structure that allow players to interact with the world as they choose.
Vertical scrolling is when the screen scrolls along the y-axis. In a vertical scrolling game the player usually starts from the bottom of the screen and moves up. They are also almost always presented in a top-down perspective.
Used in Super Mario Bros. via the pipe system. Warp Zones became popularized on the NES/SNES.
