This game is an 8-bit styled "endless runner" in which you are tasked to outrun an interstellar shockwave using creative deceleration, collecting mini-stars, and engaging your warp drive.
From the start of the game, Flip automatically moves forward and left to right on his own. Using touch controls, you can tap to stop Flip's lateral movement and slow his forward movement. During this slowed period, the shockwave behind you approaches faster and nearby mini stars move faster. By slowing at the proper time, you can better grab stars. Touching the approaching shockwave destroys Flip and ends the game.
As you move forward, you must also avoid directly colliding with stationary asteroids. Orbiting around the asteroids are mini-stars which you need to boost your shields and activate your warp drive. Shields can protect you from one collision with an asteroid, but half your ability activate warp drive. Once you collect enough stars, warp drive will engage granting you temporary invulnerability and a massive boost in speed. During warp you can rapidly tap the screen to increase your speed and distance traveled. Once warp disengages, you return to normal play and must acquire more stars to re-engage warp.
Using diamonds, the in-game currency, you can purchase various things for Flip from the shop to help ease his journey.
