Hole Run 3D is a hypercasual, three-dimensional run game that uniquely approaches classic brick-breaking mechanics. The game features a swirling magical hole in front of a red-and-white swirl-striped ball that automatically rolls down a blue, pink and violet track suspended above a gradient orange background. Unlike traditional run games, the player doesn't direct the ball's movement. Instead, they adjust the hole's position. They must use creative strategies to move it in ways that help best create a path on the track through yellow and orange blocks of different shapes. Their goal is to help the ball reach a white-checked finish line.
The air, gravity or other force generated by the swirling motion of the interior quickly sucks the blocks into the hole, which means that the player merely needs to think about the positions of each block and the rotation of the force. If they fail this task, the ball breaks apart like a piece of shattered porcelain. The broken pieces display the ball pattern on the outside and a solid red color on the inside.
Hole Run 3D gives the player opportunities to change the ball's appearance. They receive points in the form of white-outlined diamonds. They can use these diamonds to buy other skins, including a watermelon or orange and a white snowball.
