You take on the role of Arya, a young mechanic-turned-pilot hungry for fame and fortune. Utilizing a junker ship she purchased from her former employer, she enters the galaxy’s largest Space Gauntlet with her hopes high and nothing to lose. Though the spacecraft lacks a means of propulsion, Arya’s newest invention, the Rope Tool — a cross between a grappling hook and a stapler — allows her to still utilize the ship. This device makes it possible for her to attach rockets and other floating debris to her ship, employing them as makeshift peripherals. However, the strength of the Rope Tool is limited — its attachments will be knocked away if the ship takes any damage.
As you navigate the Space Gauntlet’s maze-like arena, you’ll encounter competitors of varying sizes. Smaller spacecrafts (Fliers) tend to be neutral, as they don’t have many offensive or defensive capabilities. Large ships, though rarer, tend to be more aggressive. These ships are usually specialized boss fights, obstacles the player must overcome to proceed in-game. A final, larger ship type, the Star Destroyers, are essentially dungeons that the player must infiltrate and take down from the inside.
