In the Sparkle 2: Evo, the player controls an aquatic lifeform that levels up by consuming the "microelements" that populate each level. These elements come in three colors - red, blue, and green - and the goal is to eat all of one color and avoid the others. Doing so advances the player's evolutionary form. Later forms are bigger, faster, stronger, and more visually impressive. The Sparkle 2 features rich colors and relaxing music, and is described as a "relaxation game" by the publisher.
