"Battle for Slugterra" is a computer platforming game in which the player must traverse through the slugterra world using a variety of slugs. The player has to avoid obstacles, defeat enemies and use slugs to solve puzzles throughout various levels in the game.
The way to win in each level of "Battle for Slugterra" is to make it to the end of the level. In order to do this, the player must use their slugs to move obstacles and defeat enemies as they block the player's path. As the player moves through different levels of the game, he collects more slugs to help him. Some slugs are used for battle purposes, such as the first slug the player finds in the game that releases fireballs. Other slugs are used for platforming, such as a slug that is designed to create platforms for the character to jump on in order to reach higher places.
The player has a limited life gauge, and if he takes too many hits, then he loses the level. In addition to this, there are hazards, such as spikes located throughout the game. If a player falls on spikes, then he is sent to a previous part of the level. At the end of each level, the player is rewarded based on the amount of enemies he defeated and how long it took him to complete the level.
