So when our energy hits 0 all you can do is move, correct?
Sort of, you can always fire your main weapon (albeit slowly). The beam weapon isn't available if your power hits zero.
At one point during development you could only jump if you had power, but that made the game less fun. So, right now jumping consumes power if you have any, but you can still jump if you none left.
Also, enemies will only drop power crystals if destroyed by your main weapon. They don't drop anything if destroyed by the beam weapon.
