ALL TIME Best Endless Runner

Hello, all!

In your opinion, which is the best endless runner game of all time? There are a truckload of this genre of game, so which one stands head and shoulders above the rest?

For what it is worth, my vote goes to Pitfall.

What's your opinion?

Ski Safari. Almost everything gives you points, the different animals, its fast, has a backflip, the sense of humor, all the unlockable characters, snowmobiles and much more with their unique objective(s), a good coin gathering rate, the multiple upgrades it has received adding different scenarios and the style the game has all around it, the sense of flying,... Its perfect. Really perfect.

And Banana Kong has all the right ingredients too to become one. Lets hope (or pray, light a candle,... ) it does well and Gamaga can make lots of updates with many new scenarios, animals and new stuff because it deserves it... so far my experience with it has been a complete blast... Could even top SS...

Technically not endless, but Rayman Jungle Run!

It would seriously kick the balls out of any and everything else on the AppStore if an endless mode was added

Best of the best for me would have to include:

Temple Run 1
Temple Run 2
Temple Run: Brave
Agent Dash
Blood Roofs
Run N Gun
One Epic Knight
Subway Surfers
Last Knight
Verticus (despite what most say, i still think this game is tops)
Infinity Run 3D

Punch Quest
Time Surfer
Tiny Wings
Spooky Hoofs
Stylish Sprint
Super bit Bash
Jetpack Joyride
Infin,ite Warrior
Wind-Up Knight
Darkness Rush
Ski Safari
Zombie Tsunami
God of Blades
Mega Run
Grim Joggers
Gravity Guy
I Must Run! reloaded
Steel Runner
Dino Rush
Demolition Dash
Banana Kong (pretty new but pretty good)

Miscellaneous (other views and the not-so-endless):
Into the Dead
Zombie Parkour Runner
Totem Runner
Super mole Escape
Captain Antarctica
Monkey Ninja
Crazy Control 2
CSR Racing (yes it's a runner )
Run Roo Run
Rayman Jungle Run
Jaws Revenge
Axon Runners
Joe Danger (this too )
Zombie Highway
Pix N Love Rush

This is a big list, but these are all recommended games that have been around for some time, and some may have already been lost in the iOS's massive library.

Didnt include titles like Mirror's Edge, Captain America and Project 83113 as they are more a platformer than runner.

EP.. What about the all time classic Monster Dash?
I would also add Cubed Rally Redline (endless racer), Blot and Magic Moustache to the list.
