Megaman Polarity is a mix of Megaman and Ikaruga because of that there are elements from both types of games in this one particular game. There are five stages that you will travel through as you play. At the beginning of each stage you will get a small overview of what the objective of the stage is. To move Left or Right use the directional buttons. To jump press the up arrow and to shoot your weapon you press the space bar. To fire a charged shot from your weapon, hold the space bar and let your gauge fill before releasing the bar. Your shift button will also let you switch between your weapons.
