Gameplay in The Seed is split between a strategic overview, a detailed ship design system and 3D cinematic battle scenes. In the strategic view, the player is able to order ships to move and attack enemy units, lay mines, launch scouts or improve the ASDF's ground base. The player can customise the formation and makeup of their platoons which affects the outcome of battles. Each platoon consists of a leader, such as Rei or MOS, and one to two other ships. If a platoon is defeated the leader must retreat and is no longer available for the rest of the mission, if all leaders retreat the mission ends. The game also allows for building, repairing and customising battleships from your ground base.
