The game is a reverse platformer, where you play as a variety of enemies who try to stop a video game hero from completing the level. By murdering him. It's funny and innovative.

Which was why it was a shame that Apple blocked the game from hitting iOS devices, saying it "includes content or features that resemble a well-known third-party material, Super Mario Bros".
