The game takes loose inspiration from Greek mythology but was mostly influenced by classic Anime series such as Ulysses 31. In the game, Ulysses' wife Penelope takes on the role of the hero by going on a quest to find him.

The gameplay is presented in a top-down perspective and in the form of a racing game. The action elements are comprised of energy management with a heavy focus on risk/reward scenarios. Boosting, shooting or using other abilities requires energy, for example.

After completing the introductory tutorial stages, players will be able to freely explore the galaxy in the order they choose. In every world, there are new permanent abilities to be found. There are three mission types per world: solo missions with special conditions, races against NPC opponents and boss fights.
