Ozone Command is a retro-style arcade game where one or two players must defend the Earth while being put on display as the pressure and intensity mount.

The player stands and uses two knobs on a small arcade-style controller at waist level. The game is displayed on a monitor, projector, or other video output.

Ozone Commander appears to be a traditional arcade-style video game at first: the player moves two dials that control 'paddles' onscreen to deflect projectiles from striking the Earth. As the difficulty mounts, an abstract vision of the player at the helm of the controls (as captured by a camera in the controls) begins to appear onscreen.
