In Hellrider the player guides a biker through hell to prevent skeletons from leaving the underground world. The game is played in a side-scrolling environment with a certain amount of randomization. The scrolling is randomized as well for each session, from up to down, and left to right, and vice versa for both, providing four options chosen at random by the computer. The game consists of several zones, played in succession and with different themes. After completing a zone the scrolling direction is changed, combined with a sliding mechanic to prevent the biker from crashing right away.

The biker accelerates automatically and the player only interferes by tapping. Contrary to the environment, the biker only moves in a diagonal line and through tapping the direction is changed 90 degrees and back. That way, the player constantly need to tap to prevent the biker, following diagonal lines, from crashing into the straight environment. A typical zone consists of rocks, cacti and other elements that need to be avoided. It is possible to run over skeletons for bonus points. Oil can make the bike slip and makes it harder to control. After two zones a boss needs to be defeated. He drops regular bombs that need to be avoided. Bombs with a green arrow however can be picked up and thrown to take him out. The boss mechanic is identical for each zone, but he gradually starts to throw more bombs and needs several hits.

A single hit is deadly and means the entire game needs to be replayed. It is free-to-play without in-app purchases, but offers advantages through watching advertisements such as permanent checkpoints and extra lives. Several characters, with a different look but offering the same gameplay, are also unlocked through advertisements, as well as a mega bomb.
