You must dash up the tomb while collecting coins and avoiding to drown in the mysterious shiny liquid, or even getting slaughtered by any of the many traps. The controls are very perceivable and fast. By swiping whether up, down, left, or right, your character will instantly twine accordingly up, down, left, or right as far as possible before finally hitting something and stopping. So to run past a corridor and then jump to the next level, all you need to do is “swipe” in certain directions as the path requires. Easy to understand, and even easier to to played.
Tomb of the Mask is an evidenced arcade game, which takes place in an infinite vertical labyrinth. You get into a tomb seeking for adventure and you find a strange mask.

Other than the spikes, most obstacles are time-based. You’ll need to swipe at just the right moment to bypass bats, or sneak past a puffer fish before it inflates. Keeping with the fast-paced nature of the game, though, you’ll be dealing with many of these obstacles in seconds, and you can’t exactly wait it out undecided if you want to avoid the wall of death coming up just behind you. To help turn the tables in your favor a bit, there are collectible power-ups which will give you temporary advantages, like freezing enemies or having your avatar act as a magnet for collecting coins and dots. These powerups can be upgraded with the coins you earn, and you can even unlock permanent perks by purchasing different masks.
