A bit like a super-hard egg-and-spoon race, you manoeuvre a bowl through a timed obstacle course while balancing a ball inside. The twist is that the bowl can pass through some obstacles that the ball cannot so you have to jump, run or throw the ball to get through. All the while the ball bobbles around the bowl with real physics and will escape given half the chance.
