Top 5 Endless-Runners on Android

Best ways to run a mile on Android

One of the basic principles of making a good game is to build your mechanics around the strengths of the target platform.

The endless-runner genre has spawned some of the biggest successes on the mobile gaming scene for precisely this reason. The one-touch control system is perfectly suited to small-screen devices, and the games are incredibly easy to pick up and play in short bursts.

Though you may be familiar with at least one endless-runner success story, there are a few top-class entries which may have sprinted under your radar. To remedy this, we took it upon ourselves to chase down the Top 5 endless-running games on Android.
