Play is based on 4-vs-4 team battles where the aim is to shoot and defeat every member of the opposing team. You shoot foam from a variety of weapons that are colour-coded for your team. The foam builds up as it lands on the ground to enable the creation of ramps and slides you can surf along quicker than running. You can also build towers and fortresses that offer both traversal routes and defend against incoming attacks. Working as a team you must utilise your foam to the best effect in ambitious and experimental strategies is essential for success.
The result is a game that takes shooting in a less violent direction. Your weapons are not only about offence but also useful to build defences and aid with quick movement around the battlefield. Communication between your team and adapting to your opponent's moves is essential, and winning a match is a fun and rewarding team effort.

Although there are guns and shooting, the weapons only fire foam. When enemies are hit they react but not in pain and this is accompanied by a musical sound rather than an explosion. It's like a paintball game.
9+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it's important for parents and guardians to consider the maturity required to process the game content. You need to be quick and precise with your movement and shooting, and in addition, you need to communicate well with your team and be able to cope with losing to other teams. It's important to be able to move around the game world efficiently.
