The aim is to jump through each floor without running into a ghost. The player can take a long jump or a short jump depending on how high the next floor is. But they need to jump fast because ghosts are at every floor and once you run into one, it is game over. The ghosts fly at a jet speed and can change directions in the blink of an eye. To escape, Jimbo must jump faster and higher. Although Jimbo appears small on the screen, he can jump to amazing heights hence players cannot underestimate his power.
