From the box of the game:
On your mark, get ready, here comes Fast Eddie! Eddie is on a wild treasure hunt climbing up and down ladders everywhere, in search of prizes. Things would sure be a lot easier for Eddie, if it weren't for all those pesky little Sneakers running around.
Your objective is to help Eddie capture as many floating prizes as he can jump up and grab. You must keep Eddie hopping over the pesky little Sneakers while guiding him around the screen.
