The premise is that you are a stick figure who is there to collect boxes of valuables (likely gold). You can collect them by passing through the box. However, the guards are there to keep the valuables for themselves and catch you when they have a chance. Use your speed to run, jump and climb the terrain. Avoid the guards by outrunning or outmaneuvering them, though, sometimes if you are trapped, you can dig a hole to trap them.
Once you collect all the gold, an escape ladder will appear. Climb it to escape and reach to the new level.
