Rayman Junior is a simplified version of the popular Rayman games. It has 12 levels over 6 worlds, with each world focusing on a teaching topic (e.g. phonics, simple math, etc.). There are 3 difficulties to the questions presented, though earlier versions did not have this option.
As Rayman walks past the Magician's hat, he is prompted to answer a question. The correct answer leads to the correct path taken by Rayman; incorrect answers incur the losing of a life. At the end of each level, a bonus stage involving simpler, rapid-fire questions rewards the player.
Betilla's Garden is an extra location, which is used for practice.
