The player is guided through a storyline which he or her must act in and play a major role in keeping peace and order in Ardentryst.
The game features two playable characters and a variety of weapons, items, armour, monsters, and beautiful level scenery and graphics.
Ardentryst is a platformer game and plays similarly to games such as Castlevania and Maplestory. There are RPG elements present in the game such as attributes, abilities and an inventory system which increases the depth of in-game play. Levels are played in a sequence defined by the world map, similar to the Donkey Kong Country series games, and there is a boss stage at the end of every world.
