Characters are what the player uses to interact with levels. There are currently three player characters available to choose from, each with their own abilities and optional settings accessed through the in-editor level menu. The playable character in each level is set by the creator, however, picking up Character Capsules can allow the player to switch character. Currently, there are 3 playable characters.
All characters are capable of moving left and right, as well as jumping, shooting, and climbing ladders. In addition, all characters are capable of using one weapon with infinite ammo, as well as up to 11 extra weapons which have limited ammo.
