The objective of Rotate & Roll is to collect stars and save the blobs while balancing the ball and avoiding dangerous traps and spiked enemies. Players control the direction that the ball rolls by using their fingers or tilting the device to control the world's gravity. There are four different worlds and more than 70 levels that players pass through as they advance through the game. The Game Center Leaderboard challenges players from all over the world to compete with each other. The game is easy for children to learn, but difficult for them to master. While the game is not intended for educational purposes, children may learn patience, problem solving and how to deal with the frustration of trying to pass a challenging level, as noted by Common Sense Media.

Another game with the same title is available to play for free online at Bloblob, the game developer's website. The gameplay is similar, but this version has only 40 levels. Players use the arrow keys on the keyboard to control gravity. It is possible to create custom levels by using the level editor.
