Inspired by the adventure games Portal and Metroid, you walk through the world wielding your weapon, jumping, and running to defend yourself against the enemies. Like those games, as you get deeper into Supraland, the puzzles get more complicated, challenging you to think outside of the box and to put your varied abilities to good use. The puzzles might ask you to find a way to open a door using objects that you can pick up and drop, and use simple physics to activate mechanics or press down a button.
Supraland has secret chests to find scattered through the game in hidden locations such as behind walls and through secret passages. These chests, instead of containing a useless collectable item, contains an upgrade or ability which will help you progress through puzzles. As well as these, there are barrels that you collect and bring back to the shop where you can buy the abilities such as a force cube that you conjure from nothing and double jump. This encourages the player to explore deeper into the sandbox land and seek out the secret locations.
