The vehicle controls are very basic: up to accelerate, down to brake, left to rotate counterclockwise, right to rotate clockwise, space to change direction.
To pass each level you need to collect strawberries which you will find on the screen’s key areas. A sunflower means the end of the current scene. Beware of the mines! Stepping on them is not good. The same applies to hitting your head on the ground, or against a wall.
XMoto comes with an integrated level editor that you can use to create your own screens and share them with the program's community of users.
