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 or iTunes user, the controls are the chat pops up when you hit the center of your ship, the secondary shop is a mine with a "$" in it, the rcs button is on the left side of your screen, the thruster and fire button is on the same side, the joystick (how you move is where your finger is.
