Each level is like a self-contained puzzle to solve. Using the camera, you look around the structures and find hidden areas that may contain coins or the gold star. Toad can pull up plants from the ground, find coins or turnips to throw at enemies, use his pickaxe to clear out certain obstacles and enemies. The levels for 3DS and switch are identical.
On the Wii U the gamepad touch screen moves platforms. On both Wii U and 3DS you can blow into the microphone to activate platforms. All version use motion controls to aim shoot turnips while riding mine carts.
For younger players there's a simple Find Pixel Toad mode where you explore each level to find a small pixel sticker of toad. You track your progress with this, as well as how many gems you have found on a book that records your results for each level.
You can play this game in the following styles:
In the US, ESRB state: Players guide mushroom characters around whimsical terrains while collecting coins and stars. Players avoid various hazards and occasionally jump on the heads of enemies; players also defeat enemies by throwing turnips at them. A handful of levels allow players to control a cannon from a first-person perspective (e.g., shooting turnips at “cartoony” enemies and bricks).
6+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Super young players can play the hide and seek mode to find the Toad stickers. The two-player mode means that older children can enjoy working with parents to progress. You do need more skill, so there will be a drop off until they are old enough to get the timing and forward planning correct.
