The player controls the rookie Dough Dudes on the right side of the screen. They must copy the rhythm of the coworker on the left. Orbs are distirbuted through a compartment controlled through a lever by Mr. Game & Watch. They get shot out above the left pair of Dough Dudes, who jump to transport them. They go through another tube where they are shot out again above the player's pair of Dough Dudes, who must copy what their coworker does to transport the orbs. The small dough jump is needed to push the small orbs, while the big dough pushes the large orbs.

The goal of transporting the orbs is to fuel a spaceship en route to Planet Dough. In the middle of the game, Mr. Game & Watch leaves his post, and can be seen riding on a big orb. The spaceship is then seen rising in the background, with Mr. Game & Watch waving goodbye inside. After the last orb is transported, the ship launches into space.

Timing Display

  • Perfect!/Ace!?: The player transports the orbs successfully. They can be seen moving down a conveyer belt in the background, going into a tube to fuel a ship.
  • Early!/Late!?: The player hits the orb off the rhythm, making a "doink" sound. It goes up to the compartment, but doesn't quite reach, and falls down.
  • Miss...?: The player doesn't jump, causing the orb to fall down. Doing a big jump for a small orb causes it to shatter, while doing a small jump for a big orb causes it to fall down. In any of these scenarios, Mr. Game & Watch makes a pained expression.

You...didn't do so hot.
One blob at a time, my friend.
Kind of fell apart at the end...
You're not really cut out for the job.
Try not to hurry when under pressure.
You missed a lot of jumps at the end.

When I came to see the
spaceship with my daddy,
they gave me dumplings to
take home--a big one and
a small one. I gave the big
one to my daddy.
