In Temple Run, the character begins to run at a reasonable pace in a linear maze. Over time, the character’s speed and the complexity of the maze increase. If your character stops running at any time (for example, because he has tripped twice), the game ends.

It’s an easy game to learn but difficult to master.

Yet another entry into the endless runner category, Subway Surfers proves that old adage is true: if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Combine the gameplay of Temple Run with a bit of the attitude found in something like Jet Set Radio and it’s simply a recipe for smashing success.

The object of the game is to outrun a train inspector while avoiding oncoming trains, barriers and other objects. Collecting coins along the way gives players perks like hover signs and high scores.
