Zool: Ninja of the "Nth" Dimension is a fast-paced side-scrolling platformer. The protagonist can run, jump, climb walls, and shoot enemies. Power-ups for Zool are scattered across the levels. These include life-spending hearts, smart bombs, shields, more powerful jump-skills and a twin Zool. This "twin" imitates the original's motions a few seconds after he performs them.

The8bitbeast abuses a glitch to skip directly to the credits 2:48.44 minutes faster than in his previous run.

This run aims to end input as early as possible. The8bitbeast also created a movie that reaches the ending 2 frames faster by having 3 extra input frames.
