5. Temple Run

In Temple Run, the character starts off running at a reasonable pace through a linear maze. With time, the character's speed and the maze's complexity increases. If your character stops running at any time (e.g., because of stumbling twice), the game ends. 

It is a game that is easy to learn but hard to master.

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

The aim of the game is to outrun a train inspector while dodging oncoming trains, barriers and other objects. Collecting coins on the way gives players advantages such as hover boards and high scores.
