Players start with a single weapon (Pulse), but during the game more can be found: Blast (chargeable and able to deform any kind of terrain), Orbit (defensive orbitals that can also be launched as an attack), Eruptor (able to raise the ground), Seeker (fires seeking missiles) and Stun (auto targets and stuns enemies). These, as well as the basic abilities such as Shield, Pickup Distance, Dash and Super Jump, can be upgraded in a shop screen with the points earned after each mission. While playing, the right mouse button is used to switch between the available attacks.
The large amount of freedom can be used to jump to great heights, run around and up mountains at incredible speeds and terraforming of any kind of environment. Creative use will have the player dig holes to launch enemies resistant to regular weapons into holes filled lava. There are three difficulty levels (based on the speed of enemies and shield regeneration) and often multiple missions are available on the world map at the same time. A radar in the bottom right part of the screen shows the objectives and enemies.
