Basics of the game are similar to 2006 hit game Lemmings, only differences will be networked multiplayer and multiple game modes. A.I. will be simple, built-in level editor and a world ranking system. In relation to the differences of the game to Lemmings developers quoted as “ Clones is to Lemmings as Unreal Tournament is to Wolfenstein.” Although the game is 2d it will make use of 3D camera to display the Clones Planet and to allow rotation and zooming of the 2D landscape. Player will not be given the direct control of the clones, except the Light Clone, they must issue morphs to the clones which will deform their bodies and allow to perform 10 different actions to navigate the landscape. Clones will be divided in 8 different groups with identical functionality. In the single player mode use will be given control of only one group and rest of the groups will be either controlled by computer or they will not be active. In the multiplayer mode every player will control a different group.
In the single player mode players will assume the role of new CloneMaster who is visiting the Clones Planet and is on to progress on a pilgrimage to visit and learn from the ten elder CloneMasters. Each defeated Elder Master will give the player a segment of a medallion which once restored will unlock a final Elder CloneMaster. 10-20 puzzles will be offered to player from each Elder CloneMaster. Final stage will be a head to head battle against the Elder in Multiverse Match Mode. Elder Masters will encourage the player before engaging in online play, which can be very challenging and difficult. Multiplayer mode will be based in a setting of the intergalactic CloneMaster League. Players can host a tournament or instead view list of all active tournament in the universe and join if interested. Multiplayer matches will be more difficult then single player because of human being so unpredictable. Players will have an option of registering a one-on-one match with the CloneStats world ranking system which uses a chess-like method for determining a players rank.
