One-Hit Wonder is a hybrid platformer/beat 'em up/bullet hell. The game is set in various fictional towns and cities in Europe, Asia, and Africa, and follows the adventures of a young martial artist.


The majority of gameplay takes place on levels reminiscent of sidescrolling platforms, with massive environments that can be navigated easily through wall jumps and other skills that improve mobility. These levels are also swarming with demonic enemies, which provide a bit of bullet-hell to the game by quickly swarming the player or barraging them with projectile attacks. As even a single hit will mean Game Over, this means that evasion is essential to success.

Under most circumstances, the demons are nearly invulnerable to damage, with attacks dealing little-to-no damage. But by performing standard attacks on them, however effective, the player can fill their Magia Meter. When (a section of) the meter is full, they can unleash a One-Hit Wonder attack, which deals immense damage to struck enemies - usually enough to annihilate them in a single blow. One-Hit Wonder attacks also release shockwaves that push away enemies untouched by the attack, and completely destroy projectiles close to Amaia in a manner similar to the bombs from more traditional bullet-hell games.

Aside from this, the game functions similarly to a hybrid of a beat 'em up and a platformer. Amaia has a light attack button, a heavy attack button, a jump button, and a dash button. Holding either trigger while inputting an attack will activate One-Hit Wonder as long as a section of the Magia Meter is full.


One of the shops that players will frequently access is the Cryptid's Gymnasium, which is where the players can purchase Upgrades. Some upgrades grant new moves and some upgrades improve the player's stats. The player can also purchase more challenging levels and alternate costumes at the Gymnasium. These costumes alter the main character's animations and unlock specially-themed levels. Upgrades and costumes are bought using Almas, an in-game currency collected by defeating enemies and completing levels.
