Wreckin Ball Adventure combines platform gameplay elements with physics-based puzzles. The game's protagonist is a ball-shaped robot who has to navigate through a dangerous laboratory. The game is children-friendly, with no violent or gory content.
The player controls a ball-shaped robot to explore 60 levels, using the robot's momentum, friction, jumps, bounces, and rope swings. There are also destructible walls, switches, and drawbridges to activate.
The game can be played solo or with up-to-three other players in local co-op mode. The camera zooms out to show all robots on one screen.
Aside from Story mode, the game consists of a physics-based Playground and Endless mode where players go through one long level as fast as possible.
