Freebie is a casual indie-style arcade where the player has to control a ball.
The aim is to accurately launch a ball against a rotating blue paddle so that the ball hits the green surface. It is presented as two bars at the edge of the square-shaped area.
There are usually two green bars and two red bars; the red ones should not be touched. When the ball hits the green bars, the player earns points; when the ball hits the red ones, the player loses one health dot. There is a health bar - there are three of them - on the right of the area. The ball is launched from the left-side bottom angle and the right-side top angle. As time passes, the blue paddle starts to rotate faster, making it harder to play. Achieved points are shown as cards; the players can check out their positions on the leaderboard available for every user.
Freebie's area fits in an 8x10 frame. The game has no design or music settings; it does not change throughout the play. There are two levels: a normal mode, described above, and an epilepsy mode, which is harder to play. In this mode, the monochrome background changes, turning into a pool of colored squares. Developers state that those prone to epileptic seizures should avoid playing the epilepsy mode.
