The objective of the game is to match three identically-colored brick blocks to earn points, making sure the structure does not get to the top of the screen.
As well as Brick Blocks, Green Koopa Shells sometimes fall, which take up the same space as a Brick Block, but cannot be removed in the usual method. The only way to get rid of them is using a Red Shell to knock out as many Green Shells as possible. In Play Land, as time passes, blue brick blocks come in and the player's color brick blocks go by a little faster. In Shroom City, the player must earn 300 points in order to win.
