Ricochet is a deathmatch game notable for its apparent simplicity, inspired by arcade games and platform games (including the movie, TRON and the arcade game, Discs of Tron) in both concept and design. Players jump between neon-lit platforms suspended above an abyss, and shoot disks at one another, trying to push the opponent off the platform and into the depths.

There are also horizontal barriers which the disks can bounce off (hence the name Ricochet); a direct hit resulting in a fall scores 1 point, a single-bounced hit scores 2 points, double-bounced 3 points, and so on. Ricochet also features an alternative attack (done by the alternate fire key) which cuts off the head of your opponent. The decapitation attack (as it is called) uses all three of the discs, but recharges all of them at once quickly.
