There are 3 abilities a total in the game. Each one of them can be unlocked by building a certain building. Once using one of them, a scope circle will show the effect range of the ability. When using an ability, it will not be available for a period of time.
When clicking the "Play" button after a round is over, a large amount of the total time left will be removed.
The ability to launch a single powerful missile to anywhere in the canyon.
The ability to build large blocks to block paths from enemy moving. It does not allow blocking the entire canyon, but allows extending the enemies' route, and making short range cannons effective.
This ability allows freezing all enemies in the ability's range for a couple of seconds.
Another ability is to sell cannons and buildings. However, it does not require waiting for it to be used, or buying buildings. Every item sold will add 50% of its original price to the money sum the player has.
Enemies have 2 possible upgrades. The first one is their level- ordinary enemies are in level 1, but some enemies are in level 2 or 3. The higher the enemie's level is, the more health it has.
Also, some enemies have upgrades. These upgrades make harming them more difficult. Enemies can have upgrades in all levels, however, an enemy cannot have more than 1 upgrade.
- Autorepair- the ability to regain health. Enemies with Repair upgrade can repair their health in a low rate, and they can only be destroyed by hitting them in a larger rate until they have no lives left.
- Fast- the ability to move faster. Sevelar cannos, such as the Missile Turret and the Howitzer, can only hit them if they are coming toards them slowly.
