The game features 6 levels with 3 areas each. The storyline is explained in-game by cutscenes. Oniken features an abundance of smaller and bigger boss fights along with a boss rush mode. The player can also attempt to play hardcore mode, where he only has one life and has to start over from the very beginning of the game after dying.
