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.
