Superbrothers: Sword and Sworcery EP is a video game in the point and click genre. The player primarily uses the mouse to perform in-game actions like moving, talking to characters, opening treasures, and fighting enemies. The right click is dedicated into drawing the sword to fight the enemies. Dialogues in the games are displayed in "thoughts". When the player acquires the magic book called "megatome", he can now read people's minds. This also gives him the ability to jump to the real and dream world. Jumping from one world to the next can be done by letting the character sleep. To make the character sleep, he must first be sat down on specific points in the game.
During battles, the character's life may decrease. To restore life, the player must take medicine, which is in the form of edible mushrooms. There are also in-game events that only happen during specific times of the day.
