Note: Since the game is in beta, things are subject to changes.
Tomb Raider Reloaded is a top-down action-adventure shooter. The player controls Lara's movement, but she shoots enemies automatically when stationary. The player progresses through the different stages in each chapter. Gaining a character level rewards the player with the choice of 1 of 3 passive skills, the character level restarts each playthough. In certain stages, Anaya Imanu waits Lara offering the choice of healing skills or a passive skill. Werner Von Croy appears if a boss is killed without getting hit once. Von Croy offers a passive skill in exchange of 20% of the player's health. The player is allowed one revive in a playthough in exchange for 30 premium currency, the gems, or for free by watching an ad, there are three free revives per day. The game has a gear system, items can be leveled up with manuals and upgraded with three of the same item type. Gear has five rarity types: common, uncommon, rare, epic, and legendary. The game features in-app purchases for gems, which can be used to open loot boxes for gear or buy ingame currency, the coins. There is a Lucky Wheel mini-game offering a chance for coins or skills, which appears at the start of a chapter, and once a boss is defeated. A variation of the Lucky Wheel is Special Wheel, which appear right after completing Lucky Wheel, but only five times in a day. Special Wheel offers a chance at obtaining gems. In later updates A Lucky Wheel was added after defeating a Chapter final boss, offering only gems and one loot box after update 0.10.0. Chapters use tickets to enter, with the amount of tickets needed increasing as the game progresses. Player can hold a maximum of 20 tickets, regenerating one every five minutes. The 20 ticket limit will be exceeded, when the tickets are obtained from daily logins or daily dash rewards.
