Fear the Walking Dead: Dead Run is a monochromatic, free-to-play endless runner based on AMC's US television series Fear the Walking Dead, a companion series and prequel to The Walking Dead TV series. The player can choose from different characters from the show to take them through endless, randomized runs, attempting to survive attacks by zombies as long as possible. A character runs automatically and the player only interacts to attack, shooting a ranged weapon. There are two types or ranged weapons with limited ammo, such as a pistol or a shotgun, and these need to be reloaded. It is also possible to carry an item such as a grenade or a medikit. The player's character runs on a single plane, but the environment consist of multiple planes scattered with zombies. Tapping is done to shoot and that can be done anywhere on the screen. Zombies, commonly referred to as infected, on the running plane are the main concern, but it is also possible to shoot them in the background or to target objects to make them explode or collect rewards.

When a zombie gets too close the game immediately switches to the melee weapon and then the player need to tap repeatedly to kill the zombie. It is during this sequence that health is also lost, shown in a meter in the bottom left corner. When out of health the game is over. The side view is the most common one, but at certain points a corner is taken and then the game automatically uses a different perspective, usually a behind view. Different runs are used to complete missions and unlock rewards such as new characters and weapons. It also provides cash, the game's basic currency used to buy or upgrade weapons, unlock characters with different perks, refill ammo, and skip missions. Boosters can be purchased before starting a run, providing more experience for the global player level, more rewards for headshots and a larger payout for the distance traveled.

Next to the basic Surivival mode there is an Episodes game mode. These are not endless runs and put more emphasis on story elements. In this mode a bar near the top of the screen shows the distance until the end. The first episode is available for free and the other ones need to be bought as in-app purchases. Money can also be spent to purchase coins and character and weapon packs. Optionally advertisements can be watched for additional rewards.
