From here gameplay is very typical of other games in this space with players playing games for in game currency of Sugar Stars. Players can also buy items for their goats to either customise them visually, improve their battle power or keep them well fed. The popular item fetch quests are also there that offer some very powerful rewards for those that can fulfil the difficult orders.

All of this Sugar Star accumulation generally leads players down 2 routes, creating a highly customised goat with all the frills that the game has to offer and at the same time creating a powerful goat to battle in the battle centre or explore the world to fight wild goats and uncover appearance dolls which are key to changing the visual appearance of your goat.
