Beat 'em ups are games where the player usually walks along a stage or in an environment fighting bad guys. Usually, it will take several hits before the enemies are beaten and disappear. It is typically considered a sub-genre of action games.

Usually the games are 2D side-scrollers. They usually require a player to beat the enemies onscreen before being able to continue scrolling to the next one. Some of these games have platforming elements.

Beat 'em ups for the Vectrex include Vec Sports Boxing and Vec Fu.
