Games with characters to collect?

I love spending a few minutes collecting characters in games like Crossy Road, Shooty Skies, etc. but presently I'm almost out of such games. I actually recall a game very similar to Crossy Road from the last year or two, but I've found virtually no luck in the past few days figuring out the exact name, so if anyone remembers any game eerily similar to CR that'd be great.

I also often spend time with kids in the hospital I work at and they enjoy the wide selection of characters in such simple games.

I'm trying to find similar games, but the ones I'm done with are:

  • Crossy Road (100%)
  • Shooty Skies (100%)
  • Rodeo Stampede (90%)
  • Land Sliders (100%)
  • High Risers (100%)
  • Tiny Bombers (100%)
  • Cliff Hopper (100%)
  • Dashy Crashy (60%)
  • Disney CR (40%)
  • Pokemon GO (55%)

I'm looking mostly for characters that you can also use to play or control. (I'd normally consider gyms, but impossible for my case usage.)

Two recent ones are Super Pet Hero and Fluffy Jump. Both very simple but well produced. Fun to fill in a few minutes. Many unlockable characters.

I liked Looty Dungeon quite a bit. Also PKTBALL and Don't Grind are pretty darn good.

Yes! Looty Dungeon is the CR-esque game I've been trying to remember. Thanks for reminding me!

I'll download PKTBALL and Don't Grind shortly.

I checked out Teeny Titans and I'm going to try and get into it over the weekend. PKTBALL is pretty addicting but I suck at it.

I've been playing Cliff Hopper since release and it's pretty much the closest to games like CR IMO. I'm kind of worried for the characters the game does have... I see Sailor Moon, Star Wars, Dora the Explorer, among many others I've forgotten already lol

Included Tiny Bombers in my post and somehow managed to collect all characters. A very fun game that combines the elements of Crossy Road + characters to collect.
