Job Island: Hard Working People allows players to choose from completing over fifty odd jobs. The jobs included in this new batch of screens include Security Guard, Sushi Chef, Plane Cleaner, Haunted House Monster, Bodybuilder, and Sumo Referee, to name just a few. The game includes multiple difficulty levels that change up the gameplay elements and a multiplayer feature that allows for head-to-head play on up to fifteen different jobs.

After completing each job, players can then shop for fun and unique items using the money they've earned from their daily grind. In addition, gamers can also buy special defensive goods that will help to save the planet or delay it's extinction from a meteor. After making purchases, players can also add keepsakes to their displayable collections in the collector's room.
