The basic idea of the game is to create rectangles and squares, which have to be 2x3 blocks or larger to clear them from the grid. Blocks cannot be placed on top of blocks of the same colour that are already on the grid, but they can be placed on top of blocks of any other colour which causes the different blocks on the grid to disappear.
- The game was originally revealed as Donkey Kong Coconut Crackers. It featured an isometric gameplay grid and Donkey Kong-themed levels and modes. The isometric view was scrapped because it was thought to be too awkward to see where puzzle pieces near the back of the board were. The game itself received the Mr. Pants theme due to Rare being bought out by Microsoft in 2002. (Nintendo holds the rights to Donkey Kong.)
- The 'Crayon Snake' that circles around the board in Marathon Mode eating up your game pieces was originally called the 'Pants Snake'. THQ thought that this was a bit too risqué and requested the name change.
- The game incorporates 3 main game modes: Puzzle, Wipeout and Marathon. There is also a 4th game mode called "Max's Mystical Muddle" which is opened up by completing all of the puzzles in Puzzle mode.
