Theres loads of them !

The Rayman ones are probably the best

But i think half the fun when you're new to something is discovering for yourself the games. When i got my first ipod i bought a few iOS magazines which showed me the best games, also surfed a lot, eg 'best ios games 2014' and i had lists and lists to go through.

Theres 1000's of great games out there to discover, its a great platform

All are great games. I love side-scrolling runners!
This is a great list (i cant say for Wind-Up Knight 2 though, as i didnt get it coz of the freemium model), and i would add the following as well:

Adventure Beaks
Badland
Kid Tripp
Ronin
God of Blades
Vector HD
Time Surfer
Rock Runners
Worm Run
Zombie Tsunami
Dont Run With A Plasma Sword

My personal top 3 would probably be:

1. Polara
2. Adventure Beaks
3. Rayman Fiesta Run

Darkness Rush is a very good endless runner. The sooooo heavy grinding killed it for me though.
