The exact controls and methods for playing Disney Channel games vary from game to game. Some games involve clicking on different elements of the screen to interact with the environment and collect items, while others use the keys on the keyboard to control a character moving through different levels.
Many of the games on the Disney Channel website use characters and concepts from different shows and movies that air on the network and include gameplay styles that reflect the show or movie's theme. For example, the game "Beach Bop Adventure" contains characters from the movie "Teen Beach 2," which is about a group of teens singing and dancing on a beach. The game stars the character from the movie singing and dancing with other teens on various beach-themed levels. The controls consist of clicking to move a character forward on each beach, then dragging the mouse in various directions to recruit other characters into the dance party.
Similarly, the game "The Walking Doof" contains characters from the animated show "Phineas and Ferb." This game tasks the player with defending the city from hoards of zombie-like creatures based on one of the show's antagonists, Dr Doofenshmirtz. The player drags different characters and items onto the play field to fight the attacking zombies and keep the city safe.
