Recursion has thirty levels. The first level, opened when the player starts a new game, shows five images in sequence depicting the backstory.
A ship with an alien is descending rapidly towards the planet's surface. The alien is unable to save the ship from falling and it crashes onto a blue peak of land.
This level introduces the player to the controls for moving. The alien's ship can be seen in the background. With two steps leading towards the goal flag, the player only needs to guide the alien all the way to the right using the arrow keys until the alien touches the goal flag. The level prompts the player to do so by automatically pausing the game while the alien is moving to the player's right.
