2-D forward runners

Does anyone know of a forward runner implemented entirely with 2D artwork? Any pointers appreciated.

Impressive list, thanks! On the face of it, some of these are side scrollers (as opposed to forward runners, Temple Run style). Maybe I'm using the wrong terminology?

Will check these out.

I dont remember any behind the back runners with 2D art since the perspective itself is in 3D.

Everything I posted here are side-scrolling runners, but they are completely in 2D.
