The ship in this side-scrolling shooter can transform between robot and jet mode. You can aquire speed power ups, as well as a positionable option-style craft which fires in unison with you. As you play you gain energy which can be used in the trademark "arrow flash" in robot mode, which is a damaging form of invincibility. If the arrow flash is used in spacecraft mode, it fires a wave of wide blastst that hit multiple enemies in a wave.
The basic attack types are a self-guided wave shot, a blue beam wave, and a coil that fires straight ahead. The option satellite ships can also gain the ability to fire guided missiles. All the weapons and speed acquired are lost if your ship is hit, and it can only take a single hit before it's destroyed.
In the middle of stages, there's an "out of danger" alert, allowing you a short respite while the scenery changes. While the backgrounds aren't very detailed, they are multi-layered and dynamic.
