NukeJam is a game where the player controls a 'bomb rider' falling down to the ground. The main goal of the game is to survive as long as the player can - avoiding other bombs and mines. The longer players fly down, the more points they will get.
By collecting stars players gain additional points, and by collecting hearts they regenerate health. Players can use special power to push the obstacles on the screen away from the rider. This special power regenerates over time.
