Point and click is an interface featured in a specific kind of adventure game, where players click on objects and characters to interact with them.
Sure, these days have almost every game sporting the newfangled 3D, but way back when, everyone had to live with plain old 2D. 2D, or two dimensions, limit the game to scrolling backgrounds, but some games even now make use of this basic concept.
When fighting is no longer relegated to the ground, but can also take place in the air.
The concept of affecting the universe through supernatural methods, breaking the fundamental laws of science.
A gameplay mechanic allowing players to store their items and freely carry them around.
A game perspective that views the action from above, commonly at a fixed position and/or rotation.
These games are designed to be played by one person, and one person only.
Characters controlled by the game for players to interact with, as opposed to player characters which are controlled by whomever is playing the game.
These games are based off of established licenses, such as movies, comics, or TV shows. Examples are the James Bond 007 and Spider-Man franchises.
The systems in these games are governed by rules from the pen-and-paper RPG Advanced Dungeons & Dragons. There have been many turn-based and action RPGs that have utilized parts of the AD&D rule set.
