What are the good Canabalt-style running games?

Disappointingly, searching for "running" games for the iPhone doesn't give any smart results.

What are the Canabalt-style running games, good ones?

That's a good list there. T-Sanner, by the way, is Tomena Sanner if you're searching for it. Of the games on the list, my top 3 favorites would be Mirror's Edge, Robot Unicorn Attack, and Solipskier.

Bumpy Road. Slower pace than most, but the same concept.

Solipskier is a little different in that instead of tapping to jump, you're drawing the path that your person "runs" on, or removing your finger to let him do jumps and tricks.

+1

It's really fun once you get the hang of it, and the soundtrack definitely rocks and gets you hyped up.

Run Like Hell is also fun with its obstacles and sense of humor.
