The game Dstroy resembles the game Bomberman in the fact that a player is able to lay a bomb to blast their way through to a target area. The game has two main modes of gameplay adventure and tournament. The maximum number of players that can play at a time are 4. The game can also have a cooperation between four players and a deathmatch between two players. The players can make use of split screens to play at the same time.
The single-player mode is the story mode. In the story mode, your character, a Boodie feels rejected in his town and decides to leave the Boodie Country to seek adventure elsewhere. In case of a deathmatch, there are no monsters around to kill you, instead, you need to kill your player opponents. The last one standing wins.
In all DStroy gameplay, there are two different type of blocks that block your path, breakable ones and the unbreakable ones. The unbreakable ones cannot be destroyed by anything, they also block the impact of the bombs from going past them. The breakable blocks can often reward a player with many powerups like extending the power and range of the bomb, replenishing the supply of bombs, freezing the monsters that are attacking you, help you become invisible, or gain speed. These power-ups last for a little while before you revert back to normal. You have to make use of the keyboard to navigate your player.
