There are three different control schemes for Redungeon, which have their own preferences attached to them as well. These can be configured in the game's settings.
- Swipes - Players swipe the screen in the direction they want the character to move in.
- Arrows - Players tap the on-screen arrows to move the character in that desired direction.
- D-pad - Players use D-pad style controls on the screen to move the character in the direction they want.
Each control scheme has its own configuration settings, which can be activated and deactivated by tapping the switch icon next to that particular preference.
- Left-handed mode - Positions the D-pad on the right end of the long side of the screen.
- See-through arrows - Arrows or D-pad controls are transparent with an orange outline.
- Tap to step - In the "swipes" configuration, tapping on a side of the character will allow the character to move a step towards the direction that is tapped.
- Hold to run - In the "arrows" or "D-pad" setting, permits the character to move continuously when a key is held down until it is let go of.
The game takes place in a dungeon filled with various traps. Players are continuously being chased by a "Darkness", a legion of red-eyed, bug-like, monsters and must scale forward in order to avoid being caught, also while evading hazards they encounter along the way. A playthrough ends when a character makes contact with a trap, falls off the path or is caught by the pursuing enemies behind them. Players are scored based on the distance they travel within the game.

The 6 types of wisps all move like this, but do different things when contact is made with them. Certain characters have immunities to certain wisps.
Poison WispsPoison wisps are green, with green poison particles comming off of them. When contact is made with one of them, they will evaporate, and the screen will become very hard to understand. The view of the screen is duplicated 4 times, so that you see 5 of everything, in a plus sign pattern. This will make it very easy for the player to fall of the edge. The effect will last for quite a few seconds.

Blindness WispsBlindness wisps are purple, with purple magic particles comming off of them. When contact is made with one of them, they will evaporate, and the screen will be surrounded in purple smoak, limiting the players view to only a few blocks in every direction.

Confusion WispsConfusion wisps are gold, with gold star-like particles comming off of them. When contact is made with one of them, they will evaporate, and the character will have 7 stars rotating around his head. While there are any stars above the players head, the players controls will be inverted. Right is left, left is right, up is down, and down is up. 1 star will disapear every 1 to 2 seconds or so. The controls will immediately go back to normal when all the stars are gone. While the controls are inverted, it is very easy for the player to die from trying to dodge something, or falling off a narrow path.
Ice WispsIce wisps are white, with snowflake particles comming off of them. When contact is made with one of them, they will evaporate, and the character will be frozen in a block of ice. The character will then need to move five times. It does not matter which direction the player moves each time, it just matters the movement was attempted. While frozen, the player can be hit by any trap, and cannot dodge it. The effect will last until the player has broken out.
Rik is immune to ice wisps, the wisp will hit Rik, but then just evaporate, and take no effect.
Electric WispsElectric wisps are dark blue with a light blue outline, with lightning particles zapping amoung the wisp. When contact is made with one of them, they will evaportate, and electricute the player, killing them.
Panic Bot is immune to electric wisps, the wisp will hit Panic Bot, but then just recharge some of the Panic Bots battery.
Fire WispsFire wisps are orange with flame particles burning amoung the wisp. When contact is made with one of them, they will evaporate, and burn the player, killing them.
Rik is immune to fire wisps, the wisp will hit Rik, but then just charge up the fire shield by 1 fireball.
In early development, Sir Gylbard's first design had striking similarity to Nitrome's Rust Bucket. Serpent's Dexterity ability looks similar to the Nitrome's Magic Touch series' gameplay. Pressing Panic bot icon on Panic bot-character will bring player to a Platform panic page with several panic bots moving around. By tapping them, they are destroyed. Ribb's description for level 2 is a reference to a popular song "Staying Alive" by Bee Gees
