TC, how in the HELL do you not have Jetpack Joyride yet?

ANYWAY…PITFALL! is pretty good, despite the hate it gets on these boards. I quite honestly like it better than Temple Run.

I tried Streaker Run the other day, and it's pretty decent.

You CANNOT go without Punch Quest, Jetpack Joyride, and Into the Dead. Monster Dash is good too.

This isn't necessarily an endless runner, but The Blocks Cometh is awesome.

Huh? An endless runner? Maybe you're thinking of Into the Dead.

Anyway, there's so many endless runners now it's getting hard to name every good one. But I agree with the ones that sink_or_swim mentioned as well as Agent Dash, Subway Surfers, Blood Roofs (this is kind of a love it or hate it game though), Zombie Parkour Runner and Don't Run With A Plasma Sword are a few other good ones off the top of my head.

If you do a little more searching, I think there's quite a few threads on this topic. Exact-Psience is our resident expert on runners.

These arent your typical endless "runners", but Tilt to Live (free) is an endless avoidance masterpiece, Monsters Ate My Condo is a crazy endless match-3 game, PlicPlic (free) is a great endless flyier, Super Mole Escape is a good endless digger and agree with Punch Quest (free) and Polara... outstanding games.

Polar a is in my opinion the absolute best runner on iPhone/iPad. Nothing even comes close to it...

Bumpy Road
Jetpack Joyride
Punch Quest

Jetpack and Punch Quest are free so there is no reason not to get them at least.
