Gameplay consists mainly of traditonal side scrolling whilst shooting anything that moves with the usual platforming and some melee thrown in. The standard action is broken up with on-rail third person shooting and quick time events. The game is very much a nod to the old school shooters of the 16-bit era and their [[NintendoHard harsher]] difficulty. There are no power-ups to restore health inbetween checkpoints but this is offset somewhat by infinite lives.

** Brad looks rather like a beefed-up Sketch Turner from ComixZone.

* UsefulNotes/TheComicsCode: Mocked during the SilverAge levels, when Star's cursing is constantly being censored, and you get slapped with a fine whenever you attack a puppet guard. The hypocrisy of the code allowing a deeply racist main character but no swearing is also lampshaded.

* EvenEvilHasStandards: Star is a total jerk, but even he's offended at the casual racism and misogyny of a SilverAge comic book.

** The "comic jumper" machine is pretty much the time travel device used in {{Timecop}}. An unlocked piece of concept art had it being even closer in look.
