At its core, Phineas and Ferb: The Quest for Cool Stuff follows the same formula as the myriad platform-jumping puzzle-solving casual games that have come before it. Of course, it distinguishes itself because of the theme, which it capitalizes on quite well. Players can explore familiar places from the TV show, and also get to use a mechanical contraption called the All-Terrain Transformation Vehicle, which aids them through the various obstacles and environments. What also makes this game unique is that players switch back-and-forth between controlling Phineas and Ferb (and occasionally the secret agent platypus, Perry), so as to use each character's strengths and weaknesses. The challenge comes from figuring out how to use each character to his fullest advantage.

The story element of the game is somewhat lacking. Players basically start the game in the middle of Dr. Doofenshmirtz's warehouse with little context about what's going on. As the game progresses, though, players will get sucked into the fantastical experience just because of the fun gameplay style.
