Video game concept

Includes an in-game tutorial to familiarize the player with controls and any game specific functionality.


Alternate name: How to play instructions

The first video game about Tutorial was released in 1984.

Electronic Arts, 2K Games and Capcom has published most of these games

Help screens or overlayed cue sheets that simply list the controls can also be considered as some minimalistic tutorials, but should be noted in the comments on their limited scope.

This can also be part of the actual game or separate training mode which likely has more intimate guiding on how things work.
