Play involves moving around the side-on levels, positioning yourself near the various hazards. Maybe you play chicken with a train, drop anvils on yourself, ride a Bomb-Pig or jump onto spikes. But then just before you die you swap places. Along with the indirect attacks you can also set-up projectiles and other traps so they kill themselves.
It's a simple game that becomes intensely competitive precisely because of that simplicity. The genius is that you have to use the environment (and the other player's mistakes) to win, rather than go after them directly.
