84 days ago, before the incident, Glissant was at the squid city zoo, placing an order for food from ScumCorp. He ordered 1,000 sardines, 300 sushi rolls and 2,000 doomsday machines. The order was successfully sent to ScumCorp.
83 days ago, before the incident, Radley was at ScumCorp HQ. He had recieved Glissant's order of the 2,000 doomsday devices. A profit of one quadrillion came because of selling the machines. This exicted Radley, a little too much.
23 hours ago, before the incident, Radley got the briefcase which was the control unit for the doomsday devices. However, a delinquint stole the briefcase, and Sally was stuck chasing him for the briefcase.
22 hours ago, before the incident, the delinquint continued his getaway, and he threw the briefcase into the dumpster he passed by. Sally continued chasing him, though. Soon, Jeff-Jeff emerged from the dumpster, with the briefcase in his hands.
12 minutes ago, before the incident, Jeff-Jeff saw Tucker come by, and he sold the briefcase to him for $4. Radley came by and bought the skateboard for $10.
12 seconds earlier, before the incident, Tucker was in the alley, with the briefcase. The second he dropped his briefcase, he accidentally triggered the doomsday devices.
Ultimate Briefcase is played in a set arena where players must avoid a constant onslaught of bombs and lasers. Certain bombs leave pickups on the ground upon exploding, which can be collected to activate the character's special ability or add certain upgrades permanently within the game. Players are scored by how long they survive without coming into contact with a hazard, based on an in-game counter. A playthrough ends when the character's last heart is depleted.
A shop is accessible in between games and on the menu screen via the cart icon. Players can purchase characters or items with in-game coins. These coins are also available as an in-app purchase in its own section within the shop. When players have enough coins to purchase a character, character upgrade or an item, bouncing "New!" text will float above the shop section icon.
Players can buy both characters and upgrades from the "Characters" section. Each character has their own special ability that can be upgraded to a level of 3 so that their ability has a larger scale effect.

Many of the characters have important things to remember-
- Tucker - A male buisnessman who wears a shirt with red tie and brown pants. He has bushy brown hair and a beard of the same colour. In the startup animation, Tucker is texting on his phone, but soon slips and falls down. A bomb falls and the game begins.
- Sally - A female street cop who wears a basic policeman's uniform; it is blue and complete with a golden badge and a sash. She wears yellow-tinted sunglasses and has blue hair held in a high ponytail. Notably, she is also coloured. In the startup animation, Sally has the convict at gunpoint, but a bomb falls and destroys her vehicle. The game begins.
- Jeff-Jeff - A male peddler who wears a green sweater and denim overalls over it. He has a blue beard and a blue bald hairline, which he covers with a blue bobble hat. In the startup animation, he is calmly moving his trolley full of stuff, but the game begins when a bomb falls and destroys his trolley.
- Radley - The CEO of ScumCorp. He is male and wears red-rimmed sunglasses. He wears a blue tuxedo with a red tie. He has grey hair and he rides a red skateboard. In the startup animation, he is riding his skateboard, but a bomb falls. He jumps over it at the correct time before it falls and hit the ground.
- Glissant - A male penguin from the city zoo. He is dark blue and white in colour, while his beak and feet are yellow. In the startup animation, he is seen running to an icebox full of fish, but a bomb falls and destroys the icebox. The game begins.
The "Items" section of the shop has two subsections: Hearts and Powerups. Hearts permanently add an additional heart container, allowing players to take extra hits when they make contact with a bomb. Powerups permanently add powerup airdrops that fall periodically within the game and grant specific temporary abilities. They will also increase the frequency of powerups that get dropped by a certain amount.
|Name||Ability||Cost (coins)||Drops increase|
|Hearts||Permanently adds a heart container.||N/A|
|Shield||Appends a fixed shield within the arena that can protect the character from most bombs. Once it takes a certain number of hits, it breaks.|
|Magnet||Coins and power cells move toward the character, making them easier to collect.|
|Mini Shield||Activates a shield that orbits around the character.||10||2%|
|Slowdown Powerup||Slows down all falling objects||50||5%|
|Freeze Powerup||Briefly freezes time||150||2%|
|Small Health Pack||Restores a heart to the character's health.||250||5%|
|Golden Retriever||Follows the character and leaves coins.||250||2%|
|Crawler Drone||Follows the player and attacks upwards.||500||2%|
When the player travels to another arena, that arena becomes unlockable as a shortcut in the shop once the player dies. Shortcuts can be purchased so that the player starts in that specific arena rather than the default one. In order to travel to a new area, you must collect all of the falling letters in the word RPG, which fall from the sky. Once they have been collected, a bazooka will fall from the sky, which you can use to destroy the wall on the right and go to the next arena.
Some of the areas here have special entities-
- Alley - This area is always lit by fire. This is also where Tucker first encountered the machines.
- Stadium - This area has a JumboTron in the background showing two squids as cheerleaders with the caption 'GO CEPHALOPODS!' being shown. Ocassionaly, a rugby ball will fly across the screen.
- Waterworks - This area is part of a dam's lock system. The main hazard is that the three platforms will open up sometimes, and the player will fall down if not careful.
- Warehouse - This area is located beind the ScumCorp building. Sometimes a huge crate will fall from above. Although it can be pushed around, it can easily be destroyed using a bomb.
