Astro Gate consists on a colored structure mainly designed to block paths that can be switched by a button. When the button is pressed, the Astro Gates will move in a direction that can be allowed by the terrain.

They move up or down. Their initial direction can be set in the Level Builder, but if the terrain impedes them from following the set direction, they will move in the opposite direction. Once they move, they will always go until there is terrain blocking their path, so Astro Gates originally not in contact with terrain will never be back on their original position unless the Astro Reset Button is pressed. Astro Gates in disconnected screens will act when the player goes to those screens.

The color is an important aspect of their movement, since it defines what buttons can move them. They come in red, green, blue and orange.

An Astro Gate can crush the player character, enemies or bosses. It can crush them if it is reset at its original position and they are there when it happens. When moving, it can crack Ice Blocks.

The Astro Button controls the movement of stro Gates, changing their direction. They have a determined color and when pressed, they can change the position of the Astro Gates of the same color. The colors are red, green, blue and orange.

The Astro Reset Button is gray and resets Astro Gates to their original positions.

The Astro Button of any kind can be pressed by the player stand over one. Falling Push Blocks and Crunch Don's hammer attack also activate the buttons. The Astro Buttons act as solid terrain, so they can obstruct the Player character's path or stop Force Beams.

Buttons pressed when the Flash Stopper will still be pressed, although Astro Gates will remain in their positions until the effect stops and will do their respective movement.
