SPRay puts a twist on traditional platform games by employing the forceful discharge of liquids as its primary means of defeating enemies and solving puzzles. Players take on the role of a prince named Ray, who must fend off the attacks of a banished evil Queen by spraying her minions with a variety of fluids. A magic crown allows Ray to summon "angelic" and "wicked" spirits that gamers can use to spray water, oil, and goo, among other liquids. Solo players can use the different properties of each liquid to foil enemy advances and solve specific puzzles, while friends can douse each other in the "Paint It!" and "Sticky Chewing Gum" multiplayer modes.
