Top 5 3D Runners on Android

Best ways to run into the screen on Android

The endless-runner genre has gradually morphed from side-on 2D affairs to lush, cinematic over-the-shoulder experiences. We have Temple Run to thank for that.

It's no longer enough to leg it from left to right, avoiding pitfalls until you inevitably come a cropper. Now, people want to do that in as dramatic a fashion as possible - and to make use of their multi-core HD Android handsets to boot.

With that in mind, we thought we'd revisit the endless-runner category and be a little more specific with this rundown. Come this way, then, to find out about the Top 5 3D runners on Android.

Oh, and watch your step.

What better way to start this list than with the daddy of all 3D runners? Imangi's endless-runner remains a compelling arcade experience with brilliantly tight touch-and-tilt controls. You must jump, weave, and slide your way through a devious Mayan maze like some kind of hyped-up Indiana Jones. It's classic stuff.

One of the most fleshed-out interpretations of the 3D runner format, Subway Surfers splits the dodge-left, dodge-right format into several exciting levels. Here, you can run on top of moving trains, grind along power cables, and generally act like a powered-up rebellious teen. Oh, and you can also jump on a Marty McFly-like hoverboard, which is an instant win in our books.

With Gravity Project, Alper Sarikaya adds its own stomach-churning twist to the 3D runner genre. In this title, your sense of up and down is constantly being warped, with our sci-fi hero walking on walls as if they were floors - and vice versa. If you can keep your lunch down, Gravity Project is a seriously impressive assault on the senses.

Another super-slick take on the Temple Run formula, Agent Dash injects a lovely sense of style and place into proceedings. Here, you're guiding a James Bond-esque special agent through a colourful 1960s super-spy world - think Pixar's The Incredibles and you've pretty much got the tone and art style figured out.

Unlike the others on this list, Mutant Roadkill is less a 3D runner and more a 3D driver (though the principles are the same). So, you have to dodge left and right in your souped-up automobile, blasting and running down mutants as you go. It's not the best game on this list, but it is the most aggressively empowering.
