The player controls Teddy, and must guide him up a six-story structure to the goal at the top. The goal of the first stage is to collect the Apple at the top, and the goal of the second is to get to the mommy at the top. After completing the two stages, the game returns to the first stage but at a higher difficulty.

Attempting to stop Teddy from reaching the top are monsters that patrol the floors of the structure. Since Teddy can't jump, he has to use teleportation beams to connect upward on the playing field. Monsters can be faked out by partially going up a teleporter then coming back down again.

When a player starts or completes the game, the music played is Little Brown Jug written by Joseph Winner.
