There are 5 levels in the minigame in total, the first 3 taking place outdoors, and the last 2 taking place in a cave. The goal of the minigame is to get to the end of each level successfully, whilst dodging obstacles, collecting coins, and trying to not run out of jet fuel. Getting hit by any obstacle decreases jet fuel significantly.
Cans of jet fuel are scattered throughout each level, which extend the life of the player's jet pack before running out of fuel. There are also 1-ups hidden in each level except for level 1, which gives the player another life when their jet fuel runs out. Coins are also scattered throughout each level, which the player can collect to earn more coins at the end of the minigame.
When CP3D relaunched on June 18, 2022, the game received some small graphical updates. The start screen was updated to be a newer render, and the text in the game was changed to use the Burbank font.
- If a player enters the minigame while wearing the Winter Camo Jetpack, the penguin in the game will also wear the item, and the fire coming out of it will be blue..
