The player slips into the role of Hawk King. His mission is to search the Web of Fantasy for certain legendary creatures and collect them all.
The Hawk King is controlled in a third person perspective, flying through the Web. The 20 creatures that can be captured are protected by drones, which can in turn be destroyed with the blaster weapon. Other actions the player can take is speeding up or slowing down the Hawk King, and extending a rod to capture a rare species once the player encounters one.
After a creature has been successfully captured, the player enters the trophy room though a portal, which displays all captured creatures. If the player proves unsuccessful after two attempts however, they will have to face the Cosmic Dragon, at which point the only defence the player has left is avoiding its deadly fireballs.
