In Super Sloth Bomber, you are a sloth piloting an airship that can drop bombs at enemies on the ground to knock them out. Bombolia is under attack, and the king has sent you on a quest to drive back the invaders with your ship's ordnances. To progress you would have to clear an area of all enemies before time runs out, or defeat a boss if you are in the final area of a major location.

Players have a small supply of explosives to use per bombing run, although you can increase this limit and purchase other useful upgrades from the shop with the coins you've collected during your adventures.
