Just like the original Doodle Jump, the goal is to guide the character up a series of platforms while using powerups to get a boost. The player can buy Krabby Patties for lives, submarines for starting boosts, and a shield for temporary protection. Patrick is used as a trampoline and Sandy's rocket can be used as a boost. Coins are used for collectibles and the player can get double coins by collecting gold shells and Gary. An anchor is also used as a pogo stick to get a higher boost. One difference between the original Doodle Jump and this one is that this game has worlds and levels. The player can unlock the endless mode for the world after they complete it.
