In Bouboum, you can control the skin you play as. Those controls are:
- Move Left - ← or D or Q
- Move Right - → key or A
- Move Up - ↑ or W or Z
- Move Down - ↓ or S
- Place Bomb - Space
- Use Special - C
- Open Tribe Chat - T
- Change Focus to Chat - ↵ Enter or Y
Chat commands can be entered into the chatbox in-game. Any time a backslash /starts off a message, that message will not be visible to other players.
Emoticons are a series of images that can appear above a player's head in game once the proper number key is pressed. These do not show up in chat.
