Hey Retro, since you have Zaxxon Escape on the list maybe you should add the car-runners as well, like Zombie Highway, The Last Driver and Mutant Roadkill.

Greetings,

Thank you for the suggestions. I don't want to go to far afield into driving/racing games because they are a genre of their own. Despite their unique characteristics, all the games on the list seem to retain their Temple Run feel.

Yeah, but there are certain endless drivers, like that Freemium Chillingo one, that essentially play the exact same as BtB endless runners. The only difference being the avatar.

Especially if you consider the ones, like The Last Driver or whatever that Chillingo game is called, that incorporate a lot of the elements that are "hot" right now. Such as:

The ability to move foward, left, and right at junctions, inbetween which are 3 or so invisible lanes to maneuver in-between, with a jumping mechanic;

The Jetpack Joyride inspired 3 missions for coins/level up system;

etc. Take One Epic Knight, Subway Dash or The End App...if they sold an iap skin that made you look like a car, you'de basically have the Last Driver...if that's the name.
