Players assume the role of Mowgli, the main character. Throughout the game, players collect honey drops to be used as currencies while avoiding obstacles. The gameplay uses a format similar to the one used in Temple Run, an endless runner game just where the game has no true ending but rather the player having to know how much miles he ran before he crashed into an obstacle. Occasionally, players will encounter an antagonist that prepares to kill Mowgli so the player must tap the target to dodge the attacks. Antagonists could consist of King Louie, Kaa, or Shere Khan so every time the player runs across the jungle, he/she will encounter a different antagonist.
Players can also buy items from Baloo's Cave. There, players use honey drops and honeycombs as currencies to buy collectibles and boosts. These items include unlockable collectibles, power-ups, boosts that help Mowgli throughout the game.
