Apteryx is an action / puzzle game which requires both quick reflexes and strategic thinking. The goal of the game is to make your way through 11 levels. You will collect a variety of weapons, but in many situations the best strategy will be simply to trick enemies into crashing into each other.
Your path will often be blocked by force fields, which can only be destroyed by manipulating an enemy drone into crashing into the switch that controls the field. In the early game, this can be done simply by tricking the drone into crashing into the switch while chasing you. Later on, you will collect weapons such as the tractor beam and repulsor that can be used to move enemies around.
Other weapons include the virus (which lets you take over control of an enemy and fly it wherever you want), the fusion cannon (which creates a chain reaction of projectiles when it hits something), and much more.
