Each game in Platform Panic begins with a robot dropping the player's chosen character into the level. Once the game starts, the player's task is to avoid the enemies and other obstacles, whilst leaping from platform to platform. Coins can also be collected during gameplay, and these can be used to purchase new characters, and to upgrade existing ones. The character is controlled by using simple touch screen controls; the player never stops moving, and the only way to change its path is by swiping up on the screen to make it jump.

In every playthrough of the game, there are multiple rooms which can be explored. Every room is randomly generator, and objects are placed all over the screen. In order to move from room to room, the player simply has to exit their current room through one of the doors one each side of every room. The player receives a point for each time they exit a room and enter another one. The goal of the game is to visit as many rooms as possible, whilst collecting coins, meaning that there is no end and each playthrough is continued into the player is killed.

Modojo generally praised the game for its simplicity and retro style, but was annoyed that the player is forced to move constantly, making the game overly difficult at times.
