3. Canabalt

This endless runner game, initially popularized on Flash before being introduced on iOS, is well-known for its perfectly-tuned gameplay. Do you try to survive when the game accelerates to high speeds, increasing the possibility that an ill-placed window or a sudden obstacle dooms you to fail? Or, do you slow it down by cleverly utilizing the boxes in your path? The tradeoff requires more than reflexes, but strategic brainpower too.

5. Whale Trail

This is one of the most pleasant endless runner games around. The music and graphics create a happy and charming world. The game is easy to play: Just hold down on the screen to fly upward and loop-de-loop. Hitting bad cloud obstacles doesn’t mean game over, but it does reduce your score multiplier, so fly carefully and score as many points as possible!
