The game also features a system called "soul links", which allows players to save at will, and an upgrade system which gives players the ability to strengthen Ori's skills.

Set as a 2D open world platform game, the player controls Ori, a white guardian spirit. He has the ability to jump, climb and has many other abilities. Sein can also shoot Spirit Flames to assist in combating enemies or obstacles. Ori is required to interact with his environment as he jumps from platforms and solves puzzles.

Beside Ori is Sein who is the light and eyes of the Spirit Tree.
