In Enemy Mind, players control a bodiless entity that has the power to possess and control spaceships. Players will navigate levels by taking control of ships and blasting away enemies until the ship's ammo runs out — then warp into another ship and do it all over again. There are more than 20 different ships to control across eight different levels and 70 challenge waves of enemies.
The game's campaign can be completed solo or with up to three other players — which makes for some interesting gameplay. Players can warp into the same ship and wrestle for control of it, or work together in different ships to clear levels.
Check out Polygon's interview with engineer Mike Traficante, who explained how he literally dreamed up the idea for Enemy Mind after becoming fed up with his morning commute. The chiptune soundtrack for the title is also available for listening on Bandcamp.
