Danger Dash is an exciting endless-runner, obstacle-course game in an action-adventure setting with backgrounds that feature ancient ruins of civilizations, jungles and wild animals. The player starts out as an adventurer fleeing from wild tigers down an ancient stone road. They must survive a variety of obstacles that appear on the road, including spiked logs, rock outcroppings and large trees. To survive, they can have the character jump over, run around and slide under these threats.
The player collects coins during the run to buy boosters that help the adventurer run faster or power up. They can buy a save point if they fail and the character dies. If they don't have enough coins, they must start over from the beginning of the game. The player can also unlock fantastic items, including other characters, weapons and the ability to turn temporarily into a tiger.
Danger Dash tracks and displays all the player's best records, including the highest score, longest run and most collected coins. It tracks completed missions, achievements and artifacts. The player can even check out how they compare to others on a leaderboard.
