Help remembering a game's name...

So out of the blue my son is asking for me to install an old IOS game on his device, problem is neither of us can remember the name of it, nor the developer. I've searched through all my purchased items, both on the App Store as well as my back ups on my home computer. I'm hoping if I describe it, someone will be able to remember it, so here goes:

It was an endless, downward racing game (think fall down, except you used a character instead of a ball), the screen continually scrolled faster. You either kept up, or lost a life if you were too slow and went off the screen. You could play single player, and unlock other characters, or you could race head to head in multiplayer matches, either local or online. You would race until someone went off screen and lost a life. The artwork was pretty colorful and well done. I think the icon was a picture of the main character that you used at the start of the game. Some of the other characters were animals too. It was actually quite popular when it first came out, I believe it was also one of the first games in this genre on IOS (but I could be mistaken).

Well, hopefully someone out there may have a clue, because my son keeps asking about it.

Thanks!

Yeah, tell me about it.

The character ran left or right. I believe you touched the left side of the screen to go left, and the right side to go right and fell downward through spaces in the ground to lower levels, all while racing against the screen which is scrolling against you at the same time.
The scenery was like a mountain background. The platforms were brown and rock/mountain looking.
