Doge Run is a Play2Earn 3D runner game. The game starts by tapping the touchscreen, while a doge character is in Doge City. While running, the player can swipe up, down, left, or right to avoid crashing into oncoming obstacles especially moving lambos, poles, tunnel walls and barriers. By swiping rapidly as speed increases, more points can be acquired. A crash results in a game over. The player can collect various items such as coins, score multipliers, super sneakers, jetpacks, magnets, mystery boxes and power jumpers. A power jumper provides combustion by launching up the character, a jetpack gives the ability to fly, a coin magnet attracts coins on the track, super sneakers give the ability to jump higher, and a score multiplier multiplies the rate at which the score counts. Items, such as a hoverboard, allow the character to avoid collisions and last about 30 seconds.
Daily Challenges and Season Hunts give rewards for unique movements throughout gameplay. Missions have various tasks measured by player accuracy. Up to 18 characters can be unlocked using coins and collecting specific items.
