Inspired by Mario Kart,[2][3] the game centers around two caveman racers, Brog and Grag in vehicles made out of materials associated with cavemen, as they race through stages of ancient history.[4] The goal is to guide the caveman through different sets of tracks that include hazards, such as pits or tornado.[5] Each course is unlocked from the start, and are made of 3 laps each with several difficulty options.[6] During the race, the players can pick up power ups (including bombs, nitro, tire traction, and oil slicks) that can be used against the opponents.[5][6] Every one of them will last 15 seconds.[6] At the beginning, only a few vehicles are available. They all behave diversely,[5] making a distinction in control, speed, suspension and traction attributes.[6][7] However, as the progress is made, all eleven vehicles[6] can be unlocked.

The iOS version uses the accelerometer for steering left and right, with specific touch-screen buttons for driving forwards/backwards and weapons.[5] A variety of options can be adjusted separately, like steering sensitivity.[6] It has two game modes: Race, with a focus on beating the others to the finish line, and Gather, which relies on picking up arrowheads on the track as fast as possible.[5][6][8]

In the Mac version, the single player part consists of a Practice Mode, where the players can test the cars and tracks, and a Tournament Mode with nine stages divided between three periods: the Bronze Age, the Stone Age, and the Iron Age.[9] To make a progress, the player has to finish the race in third position or higher, while collecting eight arrowheads across the level at the same time.[9] There is a Physics Editor, which allows the player to alter elements of play such as speed, acceleration, suspension, and traction of each car, as well as gravity.[10]

Cro-Mag Rally has multiple multiplayer variants. On the Mac version, the game allows up to six players to compete via local area network.[9] A number of modes are available, such as Race, Tag, Survive, and Quest For Fire.[9] Race is the usual mode with the players having a battle for the first place.[9] There are two versions of Tag, both being each other’s opposites: Keep-Away and Stampede.[9] Keep-Away begins with one player being “it”, with the goal of being the last man standing by avoiding the elimination by staying the “it” for a long time. and ends when all but one of the players has been eliminated from the game by being “it” far too long.[9] Meanwhile, in Stampede, the winner is the one to stay as the “it” for two minutes.[9] Survive allows the players to slam karts and fire weapons at the opponents, until only one vehicle is left.[9] Similar to Capture The Flag, Quest For Fire splits the players into two teams, trying to seize five torches from the enemies and move them to their base.[9] The iOS version offered a four-player online multiplayer via Game Center.[11]
