As long as the power zone is visible, your cosmic mammal has two extra abilities: you can aim its shots using the second analog stick, and if any enemies have made it up to the rim without getting a faceful of space giraffe spit, you can “Bull” them off the edge by running into them, earning mad crazy points.
