Gameplay is focused around a combination of exploration and combat. Players will find a number of useful items that include a torch that can light up dark areas, hammers that can break rocks, a surfboard, and a boomerang. Many of the items in Adventure Island IV are needed to destroy obstacles or solve puzzles that block progress. Sir Higgins can also ride a variety of animal helpers that will help him throughout his quest. A password system allows players to pick up where they left off.
