The characters have the ability to pick up boxes to throw them at enemies. Each level is a variation on the jumping theme, with the characters finding a necessary attribute (e.g. a guitar) somewhere in the level. The sixth and final level ends on-stage.
The game can be played by two players simultaneously, but the scrolling screen only focuses on one of them.
The game's soundtrack consists of music from the movie. Dimitris Yerasimos composed the music for all versions of the game except for Blues Brothers: Jukebox Adventure on Game Boy, where Thorsten Mitschele composed the music.
