Each game has a different gameplay, but the primary goal is to achieve as many points as possible before the player gets a game over. The game Fire has the character prevent characters jumping from a burning building, from hitting the ground, Manhole has the character holding a platform to keep other character from falling into the gap below, Octopus requires the character to gather treasure and avoid being caught by the Octopus, and Oil Panic has the character collecting oil from the ceiling to prevent a fire from appearing. If a player earns 200 points or more in any game, a star will appear on the corresponding side of the game in the "Game Select" menu. All the games play the same as the original systems, except for different controls and the fact that Mario characters are used.
