The player controls the character Dandara in a 2D adventure platformer. The goal is to traverse through to the final level, defeating enemies and bosses along the way. Movement is done by aiming the targeting reticle and using the jump button to navigate to a nearby platform—floor, wall, or ceiling. Combat is done by holding the primary fire button and releasing a charged shot in the direction of the aiming reticle, as well as by dodging incoming projectiles. Throughout the game, Dandara will acquire health and weapon powerups which will grant new abilities and access to areas of the map that were previously inaccessible.
