Tags are used to classify and organize games in Flashpoint for easier searching. Here, they have been organised into categories. You may use multiple tags per game, and you can use any of the category headers from Action to Other as tags too. Tags can be applied to either games or animations, but the most common Animation tags are listed in their own section for your convenience. If there is a tag that you feel would be useful, please ask a Staff Member on the Discord server, and we'll see if it's something that should be added. We don't want tags to be too specific, to the point where a tag exists solely for one game.


These games are active and action-packed, whether they involve running, jumping, shooting, or something else.

Tag Description Example

At least three games in Flashpoint should be based around a franchise to warrant a tag for that franchise.

Game Engines

Game Engines are any programming tool used to make games at a Higher Level than using the tech directly. Note: Techs don't count as Game Engines, for example the ShiVa3D Engine is used to make ShiVa3D plugin games but ShiVa3D games shouldn't be tagged. Also if the engine has a web client, it shouldn't be tagged as that Engine, for example Tic80 shouldn't be tagged Tic80. At least three games in Flashpoint should be created in an engine to warrant a tag for that engine.
