When people used to think of video games for mobile devices, short game titles that could be played anywhere, instant fun and extremely simple gameplay came to mind. This description could perfectly fit the definition of endless runners, a genre that has been linked to smartphone video games for ages. Although this type of game has evolved along with the medium, its hallmarks have remained almost intact. This is a tireless genre, if we look at the number of titles that continue to appear every week, and that is why we wanted to make a selection of what we consider to be the best endless runner games available on Android.

Jelly Run

We tried to make a diverse selection when choosing titles for this list, with a good mix of classics and newcomers. Jelly Run has probably never appeared on any other list of the best endless runners anywhere. But there is something special about the little game by Ketchapp that will keep bringing you back to try to reach a new high score. Jelly Run features simplicity above all. [Download]

Sushi Surf

Not all endless runners are set on dry land. Sushi Surf will take you to a Hawaiian beach where you will accompany a surfer who wants to surf every tropical sea. By controlling the character’s progress, you’ll have to glide over the crest of each wave or dive into the depths of the seabed when necessary. Dodging huge rocks or large fish will require considerable skill in order to remain standing on the boards that you will unlock as you level up. [Download]


Run Forrest Run

Six Oscar awards are enough to have an endless runner on Android. The very well-known Forrest Gump scene, when Jenny yells “Run Forrest, run!”, makes more sense than ever when you get into the mechanics of this title. Naturally, the main task is to make Forrest run along an infinite road. You will also soon get new outfits and items that will help you empower the main character. [Download]


Jumanji: Epic Run

Jumanji: Epic Run is another endless runner game for Android based on a hit movie. This title stars the characters from Jumanji: The Next Level and gives you the chance to run at full speed with Dwayne Johnson and the rest of the gang. Dive down a waterfall, climb mountains or drive different off-road vehicles —these are just some of the actions you’ll be able to perform while running through each scene.  [Download]

Slash & Girl – Joker World

An uncharted world has been invaded by dark clowns and only a girl named Doris can defeat them. This is the premise of Slash & Girl – Joker World, a dynamic endless runner in which you’ll accompany the brave young girl in her journey through a universe full of enemies. Equip the warrior with the best weapons and swipe your finger at full speed in each level to intercept all the rivals before they can fulfill their evil purposes. [Download]


Blades of Brim

The authors of the well-known Subway Surfers have created another endless runner in which you will control a series of heroes through amazing scenarios. Blades of Brim features dozens of different enemies that you’ll fight using the skills of all the characters that you can unlock. You’ll even be able to go through the walls and move along them whenever necessary. [Download]

Miraculous Ladybug and Cat Noir

The popular Ladybug makes her appearance on Android with an endless runner starring the main characters of the animated series. In Miraculous Ladybug and Cat Noir you will control the heroine’s or Cat Noir’s progress and face villains like Hawk Moth and his “akumas”. All this while collecting cookies and dodging lots of obstacles that won’t make it easy for you to survive. [Download]

Sonic Dash 2: Sonic Boom

Sonic goes back to his old ways and, of course, he will run through scenarios familiar to fans of The Hedgehog saga. One of this game’s peculiarities is that you will be able to change the character you play at any of the control points available at each level. Other than that, there are few new features. Running without rest in order to collect all the rewards will be once again the mechanics to follow. [Download]

Cookie Run: OvenBreak

In this sweet endless runner, you’ll guide a gingerbread cookie through scenarios full of items and obstacles. Escaping from an evil witch’s oven will be your main mission, which you’ll have to carry out while moving the main character from one side of the path to the other. Moreover, thanks to the candies and chocolates that you’ll find, you’ll be able to unlock lots of additional characters. [Download]

Crash Bandicoot: On the Run!

The characters of the popular PlayStation saga land on Android to show off their running speed through each scenario. Crash Bandicoot and his friends also have a lot to say in the endless runner genre and that’s why they will take you into highly dynamic levels. Defeating Dr Neo Cortex’s minions while crafting new weapons will be some of your goals to meet if you want to save this universe from destruction. [Download]

Run From Dusk Till Dawn

It’s easy to get lost in the flurry of new Android titles, and even more so when talking about a genre with as many titles as endless runners. Run From Dusk Till Dawn has gone a bit unnoticed, even though it came out as a way to further sponsor the TV series From Dusk Till Dawn. Maybe the series was a bit disappointing compared to Robert Rodriguez’s mythical film, but the game is extremely fun and complete. Enjoy it from our website without worrying about any geographical restriction. [Download]

Adventure Time Run

The number of endless runners based on famous franchises is crazy. Everyone seems to want to hop on the bandwagon, although often these titles don’t end up as good as they might have hoped. But Adventure Time Run is different, since it comes with so many details that you can indulge in endlessly. Without a doubt one of the best Android games about Adventure Time. [Download]

Sky Dancer

We are quite used to moving horizontally in endless runner games, and that’s precisely what’s needed in this game. However, it contains an extra layer of depth by adding jumps, which you need to time correctly in order to get from platform to platform. It might sound difficult, but don’t let that turn you away. It’s a truly spectacular game, as you can see from its gameplay. [Download]

Sky Dancer


When developer Mediocre (sic) first thought of mixing endless runners and pinball games, there were surely some who thought they had lost their minds. And yeah, it is crazy. Absolutely nuts. But it’s one of the best cyberpunk games on Android to date, and one of our newest favorites. An audiovisual delight reminiscent of 80s synthwave, which has been coming back lately, as exemplified by Drive. [Download]


Dashy Crashy

A premise as basic as turning an anthropomorphic being into a car has led to this gem called Dashy Crashy. It’s an endless runner full of possibilities, cars to unlock, and other amazing situations. The game features an amazing array of possibilities since each car can be played in a different way. Once you have it on your device, it’ll be really hard to stop playing! [Download]

Temple Run 2

Years go by and Temple Run 2 continues to stick around. We could have included games like Subway Surfers, Bush Rush, and other classics of the genre, but we think that Temple Run 2 best captures the basics of the genre: running for as long as you can while avoiding obstacles with an ever-increasing difficulty. Long live the classics. [Download]

Amazing Katamari Damacy

The arrival of Amazing Katamari Damacy was a breath of fresh air in the endless runner genre. Bringing the magic of the Katamari saga to the genre feels natural once you sit down to play it. Your goal will be to grow your Katamari as much as possible while dodging all kinds of objects. But that’s not all, since if you manage to make your Katamari big enough you will even be able to gather some of those objects. [Download]


Alto’s Adventure

There is no description that does justice to Alto’s Adventure, a game praised by people from all over the world. And it’s no wonder. Alto’s Adventure is one of the best games available on mobile devices thanks to its simple premise, well-balanced difficulty, and excellent graphics. If you haven’t tried it yet, you have no idea what you’ve been missing out on. [Download]

Dash Quest Heroes

Tiny Titan Studios has done it again with a sequel to Dash Quest! This title goes beyond the usual themes of endless runner games to provide an experience that’s in some ways more similar to an ARPG. It’s a retro-style game with hours and hours of entertaining gameplay. It’s hard to find such well-made genre mashups, but its endless runner inspiration is readily apparent. [Download]
