In Domino Man, you play as the titular character. The goal is to fill all the empty trail, as indicated by the black spots on the screen, with dominoes. Once the dominoes are all lined up, the stage is complete. However, there are many obstacles that can topple all of your dominoes. Some of these enemies include shoppers, caddies in golf carts, and a large bully. In addition, there is a giant bee that constantly follows you around, but can't knock over the dominoes. Touching any of the aforementioned enemies results in the loss of a life of the player. However, some of these enemies can be dispatched by pushing them out of the way, or dispatched by other means.
The game has only three stages, consisting of different environments; the shopping center, the golf course, and the construction site. While the game only has three stages, the domino paths change and the game gets progressively more difficult.
After a few stages, similar to Pac-Man, a brief cutscene will play of the Domino Man defeating the Bully. The first one shows him pulling down the bullies pants, the second one shows him hitting the bully a few times with a domino, and the third shows him shooting the bully with a gun.
The game is also noted for its game over screens, which gives a "Roses are red, violets are blue..." message. The message varies depending on the current score that the player loses the game with. Another thing to note is Scott Joplin's Maple Leaf Rag serves as both the in-game and cutscene music.
