Like most puzzle games, the basic gist of Gunpey is easy enough to grasp. Tiles rise up from the bottom of the screen on a timer or at your behest, each stamped with a straight or bent line, and you must vertically swap them to create lines that connect the left and right sides of a 5x10 grid. Lines may fork and zigzag, depending on how you arrange the pieces, but only paths that reach all the way from left to right will disappear.
