This is an action game in which players assume the role of Scott Pilgrim, a boy who pursues a delivery-girl love interest while defeating creatures along the way. Players traverse through side-scrolling city environments and beat up several stubby enemies (e.g., humans, robots, zombies, other "cartoony" villains). Players also can use baseball bats, hockey sticks, spare tires, and swords to whack at enemies. Zombies are depicted with their brains exposed and with small splotches of blood. Some female characters wear revealing outfits, and their breasts jiggle slightly when they move. Some scenes depict characters sticking out their middle finger (i.e., "flipping the bird").
