The game is unusual for a fighter, in that battles take place in the air whilst the characters levitate, giving the player 360 degrees of movement. Fights take place within a large transparent cube that designates the level boundaries; however these can smash when an opponent is defeated. There are only three attack buttons in the game; a quick attack, a heavy smash attack, and an energy blast. The three of these can be combined to create simple combos.
The fighting also has a strong emphasis on special projectile attacks, the use of which consumes energy from a power bar that recharges while the character is motionless. While the fighting may seem simplistic, a greater priority in the gameplay is usually given to timing and avoiding these special moves.
The game features eight characters, each of whom fight using a specific element
Burn Griffiths: A young American man who has the psychic ability to control fire. He seeks to dissuade his old friend Keith Evans from creating a utopia for Psychiccers by wiping out all the normal people.
Emilio Michaelov: A young Russian Psychiccer who can barely control his power and lives in fear of it after wiping out a small town. Emilio travels the world in search of peace and solitude but trouble always seems to find him.
Wendy Ryan: An Australian Psychiccer in search of her missing older sister Chris. Her investigation leads her to believe that NOA is involved in her disappearance.
Sonia (Chris Ryan): A bioroid agent of NOA and loyal servant of Keith. She is actually Wendy's older sister Chris, who was kidnapped and turned into a bioroid by Wong.
Brad Kilsten: A Psychiccer who suffers from a split personality disorder. He joined NOA due to Keith being able to keep his bloodthirsty psychotic side at bay but is beginning to lose control of it.
Richard Wong: A Chinese man who serves as Keith's consultant and strategist in NOA. He secretly plans to betray Keith and take his place to fuel his ambition of world domination.
Rokudo Genma: A Japanese Yamabushi monk/priest who uses a unique style of Shugendo magic while in battle. He sees Psychiccers as a threat due to their immense power and seeks to eliminate them all.
Gates Oltsman: An American soldier who received cybernetic enhancements after a devastating Psychiccer attack that claimed the life of his wife and daughter. He now seeks revenge against all Psychiccers.
Keith Evans: The leader of the NOA. His ultimate goal is to create a safe utopia for all Psychiccers and will eliminate all who stand in his way.
