Drive, aim, shoot. Drill or grapple to escape. It's that simple.
The standard game is continuous rounds where everyone gets a random weapons (RPG, Laser, Grenade, C4, Bouncer, or Nuke) and 3 utility tools (grapple, thruster and drill), played on one of the 5 biomes, each with unique elements (eg. the Ice Cave is slippery, so you'll need your boost rocket to get up steeper slopes).
Each round only last about a minute and once any player is dead it's sudden death for everyone else, so all players can have non-stop fun.
Gamepad controllers are fully supported and one player can play from a keyboard, for up to 5 players.
In single-player mode you need to destroy towers, some of which are shielded (touch the shield controller with your vehicle to disable it) - you can practice both weapons and acrobatics.
