Fun 'n Games is a compilation of puzzles, arcade games, a music composer and a paint program in one video game. The game is arranged into four different types of activities, or categories: Paint, Games, Music and Style. There is virtually no difference in gameplay between the Super NES and Genesis/Mega Drive versions. However, the Genesis version (not the Mega Drive version) has an extra game in the Games section.
Parts of the game is controlled in a computer mouse-like fashion. Although the Super NES version is playable with the Super NES Controller, the game can be played with the SNES Mouse. Similarly, the Sega Mouse can be used instead of the regular controller.
