This game is played by identifying targets on the map screen and engaging them in battle view.
This screen gives an overview of the Lylat system. Move the cursor with the +Control Pad and press the B Button to send your Arwings towards that point. Selecting a new target and pressing the B Button again will change your Arwings' course. Your craft and those of the enemy will move simultaneously. If they meet you will leave the map screen and enter battle view.

Learn to read the movement of enemies on the map screen well, and take out those closest to Corneria first.
In battle view, the number of enemies remaining is shown on the TARGET display. While on planets, these targets also include fortresses containing reactors, switches that reveal those fortresses and other such elements.

On planets, the objective is to destroy the reactors found inside enemy fortresses. In order to gain access to these fortresses, it may be necessary to activate a switch first. Switches are triggered in various ways, such as by applying force, using blasters or stepping on them while in Walker mode.
When engaging a battle carrier, you must approach and infiltrate it in order to find its reactor. Whether on a planet or taking on a battle carrier, you will have to defeat many enemies before you can get to the reactor.
· While in battle view, the enemies on the map screen will continue to move towards Corneria, albeit slower than they do while the map screen is being viewed.
