The gameplay mirrors that of ''Chip 'n Dale'' for the Famicom, and even has the titular characters from that game. Similar to that game, there is a two-player mode where the characters play cooperatively. In this game, the player can throw boxes, hide in them and throw fireballs, the latter of which couldn't be done in ''Chip 'n Dale''. The player starts with 5 hearts for health. They can collect med-kits that restore one heart or acorns which restore health completely. They also have a limited amount of gloves which throw a fireball at the enemies. They start with three of these and extra ones can be collected by finding more gloves inside boxes. The player starts with 4 lives and 5 continues. 100 diamonds are required to get an extra life in single-player, while only 50 are needed in cooperative play. The graphics are similar to those of ''Chip 'n Dale'', but none of the graphics are ripped directly from that game. However, several of the enemies are clearly based on those from the sequel, ''Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers 2''. The music is mostly original, although several of the songs used in this game are from other sources. The music for the "Secret Nucleon Dump" and "Pay a Visit to Grotto" stages is the ''Donkey Kong Country'' theme, while the music for the "Graveyard Encounter" stage is "Be Prepared" from ''Disney's The Lion King''.

The game is split into 7 acts in total, of which only the first act is based loosely off the original ''Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers''. Unlike that game, no acts can be skipped and there's no map screen to go through between them. All 7 acts have a boss at the end. Most are unnamed, although the final boss is identified in the final act as Barnett, who is a hat-wearing elephant which jumps around on a lift. Like ''Chip 'n Dale'', all of the bosses can be defeated by throwing randomly appearing objects at them, although in this game they also take damage from fireballs. All of the bosses take 8 hits to defeat, aside from Barnett who takes 12 hits. The ending shows a "cast of characters" for all of the enemies in the game, excluding the bosses, followed by a credits sequence.
