In Banania, the player takes the role of Berti who works as a garbageman in a warehouse with 51 floors. Unfortunately an escaped monkey fled into the warehouse and left a lot of banana peels behind. Now Berti's job is to move through all floors and clean up.

To reach all banana peels, Berti has to solve Sobo-Ban-style puzzles: shoving around boxes to create new ways. Boxes can't be pulled, so it is important to think ahead in order to avoid unsolvable situations. There are two kinds of boxes: one which need a free place behind them and others which allow to push all other boxes (including the first kind) behind them at once. Other obstacles are doors (require finding a key) and two monster types which kill Berti on touch: dumb ones which can be trapped with boxes and smart ones which can push boxes themselves.

Berti has unlimited lives and the current level can be instantly reset. There are two movement options available (either Berti moves automatically in the pushed direction until he reaches a wall or the stopping button is pressed or the player has to press the movement button for each step) and the game counts the used steps for use on the high-score list.
