The gameplay to Donkey Kong: Revive is nearly identical to the original arcade version. The player has the ability to walk and jump over enemies and obstacles.

In addition to the Classic Mode, a Story Mode has been added to the game. In Story Mode, Mario and his friends have to team up to save Pauline from Donkey Kong. The story mode has many different things from the original game, including various new enemies and obstacles to make levels harder.

Story Mode also introduces several new power-ups. Alongside the original Hammer, new power-ups such as the Hammerang and the Shockwave Orb can now be used to beat levels. Like past games, most of these items can only be used for a limited time.

One final mode is a mix of Classic and Story Mode titled Endless Level Dash Mode. In this mode, the player goes through Story Mode levels an endless amount of times, trying to get a high score. When all the normal levels are complete, they are played again, except this time a little harder.
