“Ymbroglio Alpha” is a science-fiction side-scrolling 2D puzzle-platform game in which players can control both a human astronaut (Captain L.) and a robot (Yridia), sometimes interchangeably or simultaneously, for the purpose of progressing to the next level.
A meteoroid smashes against a Space Station by damaging the main satellite and killing a group of astronauts deployed in the Sector 2 area. Meanwhile, a survivor, suffering from amnesia, is the only confirmed survivor and must find his way to safety. With limited movement of his body and a transmission beam gun (TBG), he discovers a robot capable of managing ship’s controls and restoring the beacon to the primary satellite.
Objective: Reach the end of any stage with the Astronaut and the Yridia by solving the puzzles involving the stage’s environment. After completion, [both] players must enter the door to the next stage.
Default keyboard settings are mapped to ASWD and Directional Keys for movement. While Yridia is only able to move with energy provided by the TBG, it can move in any direction in which the ray is pointed. With the SPACE Bar, Yridia can interact with switches and computers to change the situation of the stage. Captain L. primarily moves in a linear direction while providing energy in a 360-like motion. While standing still, he can change the angle of his TBG
Captain L. has amnesia and does not know where he is. Yridia is activated after the Captain solved a simple puzzle and subsequently warns the astronaut about the damage and low oxygen levels. In order to learn more information and save themselves from danger, the two move from room to room to activate the previously disengaged power supply to divert the oxygen supply to Section 1 and turn on the main satellite and call for help from outside.
