The game takes place on single screen arenas and is broken into rounds, once a round begins enemies spawn into the arena and the player must eliminate all enemies to end the round. The player will receive points for eliminating enemies, enemies also drop coins that need to be picked up, coins act as the upgrading currency. Once the round is over the player will be taken to an upgrade screen and the player can choose to add a variety of different upgrades that will help in the ensuing rounds.

Robot pets can also be purchased as an upgrade, these pets will provide support during the round. If a pet is struck by an enemy it will require being picked up to become active again, the player must simply run over to it and it will begin to follow again.

As the rounds go on there will be an increased variety of enemies that have an assortment of different characteristics, these range from enemies that only travel towards you, to enemies that shoot their own projectiles, to even more menacing abilities. After a series of rounds the player will fight one of the four bots of the apocalypse.
