In Eets the player must guide the character through a series of platforms in order to collect puzzle pieces. To do this the player must place items in the characters path to help him. The character's mood changes also reflect on gameplay;
- if Eets is angry or cross he can then jump across larger chasms
- if Eets is scared then he will refuse to jump.
- The characters mood can be changed in different ways such as making Eets angry by hitting him with chocolate chips from a chocolate cloud.
- There are different types of items available that cause Eets to react in different ways:
- Explosive mushrooms will fire the character in an arc.
- Whales will suck objects in, before shooting them out of their spouts.
- Gravity Pills will allow the character to walk upside down.
