You play the role of a young man bored with life so has decided to go out in the world to make his fortune. As a farewell gift, his Father gave him a magic carpet to ride the land, but also gave a warning about an evil genie in one of the castles. Realising that great power would come his way if the genie was defeated, the young man decided to explore the land to get treasures but also to get experience and magic to face the genie in one final showdown.

Rug Rider is a side view single screen game where you must fly around the screen on your magic carpet to collect keys to unlock the treasure over various locations. Before you play a screen, you are presented with a map that has various locations and you are able to select any one to play. As you fly around each screen, there are various creatures that fly around and these must be avoided or shot with limited amounts of magic. If you touch a creature then you lose one of five lives but you keep any keys collected. Hitting platforms or objects too hard also loses you a life. Up to four players can play but each player has to wait for the other players to play a full game before having a turn.
