Players take control of an individual fighter, two of which oppose each other on either side of the screen. The fighter's hit points are indicated by bright coloured circles: yellow for one player, and blue for the other. The circles turn red and disappear for each hit one player lands on their opponent. When all circles are red for one player, that player's fighter dies, and a stone tablet falls on their side of the screen. Another fighter then descends, with one more hit point than the previous fighter.
Both players start with four hit points; their maximum is eight.
