The game includes a 30 level campaign and a survival mode, as well as two additional modes available through In-App-Purchases: "Defender" and "Lost in Space". In the campaign players get points that can be used to upgrade their ship systems and weapons.

Weapons include lasers, autocannons, spread guns, missiles, bombs and others. There are also some new weapons available through IAPs such as the Lightning Gun, Swarm Missiles, and more.
