Run Roo Run is a micro-platformer. The game revolves around a kangaroo that must travel from Perth to Sydney in order to save her Joey from capture. The player must make their way across three hundred levels through twenty chapters encountering new obstacles along the way. Each chapter includes fifteen basic stages and six extreme stages as well as weekly free downloadable maps. Each weekly map pack includes ten new levels.

The gameplay is simple - once the player starts a map, Roo will run automatically from one side of the screen to the other. In order to avoid obstacles, the player taps the screen to make Roo jump. The game starts off simple, the first chapter introducing the player to the game by jumping over objects placed on the ground. The game then begins to add interactive objects with each subsequent chapter. Even though there are a number of objects added throughout the course of the game, the mechanics stay relatively the same. For example, when interacting with a bouncy tire - the player must "tap" the screen to jump on and then once again to bounce off the tire. When interacting with the fans, they must tap to jump into the air stream and then once again to jump out before they come in contact with a harmful object in the level. Each object has its own unique yet simple mechanic.
