Fight for survival in 1-4 player matches in a battle to the finish. Each player must attempt to tag others in the heart with the tip of their tusk. Tag opponents by touching their hearts with the tip of your STARWHAL tusk. Every time a player is tagged, they will lose one health. When a player is out of health, they are out of the match. The last player with health wins the match! If the timer runs out, the player the most remaining health and the most tags during a match will be awarded first place.
Going after your enemy will also put your heart within reach of your opponent. Approach carefully while on the attack to keep your foes from getting the upper hand.
Players are awarded points for tagging opponents’ hearts with the tip of their tusk. Unlike Classic Mode, you can not be eliminated outright. At the end of the match, the players are ranked by the number of scored during the match.
Players battle for control of bubble-like “zones” which earn points over time. Tagging the center of the zone will change the entire zone to your color to show that you are in control. You will earn one point per second for each zone under your control. The player with the most points wins.
Tagging a zone also slightly pushes players away from the center, giving you a small window of defense.
Players try to hold on to the heart. Only one heart appears, initially at the center of the arena. Whoever has the heart gains points the longer they hold the heart. Other players may steal the heart by tagging it with the tip of their tusk.
Sometimes if you work together it helps everyone - coordinate attacks with your fellow players to trap a leader and steal their heart!

During challenge mode you will be given a chance to beat your current best score by racing against a ghost of yourself. Once you have completed a challenge, retrying the race will show a ghost replay of your best time on that course. Go STARWHAL, go!
On the level select menu, you can also open a leaderboard to see how you fare against your competition.
