How To Play
The Controls in Starblast.io are fairly simple. The ship can either be controlled with the mouse or keyboard. Moving your mouse around or using the arrow keys will cause your ship to move, while pressing left click on your mouse or the space bar on your keyboard will cause your ship to fire its weapons.
Starblast.io can also be played on mobile, if you’re a Google Play Store user. The controls in this case are tapping to fire and swiping and holding in a direction to move.
Other gameplay controls:
|Z||Take a screenshot|
|C||Show/hide Chat Commands|
|U||Open/close upgrade bar (when max crystals)|
|Scroll wheel||Toggle secondary weapons|
|W||Pull Up Secondary Weapon (only in Survival)|
In addition to the basic movement/attack controls and gameplay controls, many other keys on the keyboard (e.g. the "K" and "M" keys) act as an in-game selection addition to chat with other players in real time. Here is a list of those shortcuts (in Survival Mode).

|2||Shield Regeneration||7||Ship Speed|
|3||Energy Capacity||8||Ship Agility|
|4||Energy Regeneration||9||Upgrade Ship (Option 1)|
|5||Weapon Damage||0||Upgrade Ship (Option 2)|
Tip: if you get the damage upgrade it's recommended to get energy regeneration and capacity.
