Massive Snowboarding 3D is a mobile snowboarding game. The game is played from a behind view and the player can choose from different characters to race down various 3D rendered slopes. There are several different tricks that can be done such as grabs, spins, flips and board slides as well as different off-axis tricks. By making tricks the player scores points and by completing consecutive strings of tricks without landing or wrecking, combos are created which leads to more points.
The main mode of the game is the career mode. It consists of eight slopes that are unlocked by completing goals. For each slope, there are three different events with a total of eight goals. There are three different types of events: ride challenge, rival race and video shoot. In the ride challenge, the goals involve reaching certain amounts of points and performing specific tricks. Rival race involves competing against another snowboarder and finding the fastest way down the slope. The video shoot consists of a single ramp located in the press area and the aim is to do a combination of tricks that yields a minimum amount of points. By completing goals, the player earns points that can be used to improve the snowboarder's stats in different categories (speed, jump, tricks, balance and switch)
