You can play with up to two friends in the multiplayer game mode. There is a betting system with in-game coins where you can place a bet when you play multiplayer. In order to unlock multiplayer, you must pass the first four campaign levels.

While the app is free, there are also optional in-app purchases. One of the possible purchases is a starter pack which comes with 3000 coins, one rocket, one shield and three crystals and is currently 80 percent off coming out to a grand total of a dollar. With the coins, you are able to buy more power-ups like the crystals and a variety of rockets. The crystals represent extra lives you can get after you die to keep going in the game.
