Players travel from location to location using a jetpack, collecting coins along the way. If the player runs out of Jet Packs, a short cut scene shows the penguin falling from the sky and falling (in the Mine levels, the player does not reach the floor). Extra fuel and 1-ups can be collected, but you must watch out for anvils and coffee bags. Other occasional obstacles may come, such as a shark or fish.
If the player makes it to the end of Level 5, they travel to the Mine. If a player loses before the end of the game, he or she will land in the room they were flying above before they lost, which is unknown when you are flying.
