Bouncing Bert is a platformer played from a traditional side view perspective although with unusually large sprites. Therefore only a small part of the level is shown at a time. The objective for each level is to find and collect three keys and bring them to the exit. Controls involve walking left and right and jumping. In addition to the normal platforms there are conveyor belts and platforms that the player sinks through. Various hazards and baddies have to be avoided as any contact will lead to a life lost. These include weeds and skulls. The player has five lives in total.
