Best endless runners?

Or endless variety?

I have already tried tr, tr2, jetpack joyride, sonic dash, subway surfers, verticus, one epic knight and iron man 3

Tr2 is too easy in my opinion, especially after level 9 when you get 2 gems per special. You can play for an hour without dying. Tr is better, but also no challenge for me anymore. Jetpack joyride is great, and will stay on my phone but I unlocked everything. Sonic dash is just plain horrible. Subway surfers is similar to tr2 in that you can run for hours because of hoverboards. I'm trying ironman 3, but are there any other great runners out there? Namely the new teenage mutant nt and the 2 paid temple run games. I need a game with a good mixture of challenge but doesn't force you to die after a while (jetpack joyride).

I like TheEndApp after you pay the 2.99 to get the premium version. Ronin is very good too, and people like Agent Dash althought it didn't click with me.

My personal favorite is not exactly a runner, but I do love it to death despite not being perfect in gameplay: God of Blades. Also, Tiny Wings HD, great for same device multiplayer.

Edit: I also love Mirrors Edge for iPad but its kinda of a platformer runner.

Try Blood Roofs, it's very unique.

Also try PITFALL!, for a person that's not really of fan of endless runners, I liked this one quite a bit.

Also try Into the Dead. My second favorite endless runner, behind Jetpack Joyride.

HeadshotsAlley is an endless...headshooter? Hard to explain, but this is pure arcade no upgrades, no special abilities, just pure skill and a leaderboard.

The Blocks Cometh is like an endless platformer, you shoot and avoid blocks trying to crush you. It's simple, but very well polished.

Get Mad Dragon which just came out. It's a total blast, free, universal, full of content and customization, and the only iaps are a coin doubler and coins which you can collect in game!

Canabalt, God of Blades, Mini Ninjas, Punch-Quest, Robot Unicorn Attack 2, Run n' Gun and Whale Trail. Those are what I'm playing besides what was mentioned initially.

The difficulty of a game with no ending has more to do with how good the other people playing it are than how quickly you're expected to die in it though. If the top scorer can only survive for a minute in a given game, I'd just call it short before I'd call it hard.
