Based on the TV show of the same name, The Office puts you into a competition against your rivals for the reward of one month's paid vacation. In each level, you will be assisting other employees with whatever needs doing, whether that be handing them a colored folder, or deliveries. Every task you complete earns you points; earn enough points before your rival for the level does, and you win. The addition of pranks allow you to handicap an annoying rival, and the presence of achievements and expert rankings gives you more reasons to excel.
The office complex is shown in a slightly tilted top-down perspective. Each employee is displayed as a bobble-head doll.
