Run games for the iPhone have become very popular in the last few months, and a lot of good one’s were released aswel. The concept of a running game is that you need to by-pass obstacles, and at the same time you need to collect coins, gems or points to buy upgrades or boosts. The higher your score gets the faster your character will move, and the harder it becomes to keep passing obstacles. These games are very addictive, and they are also a lot fun to play, so here are the top 5 running games for the iPhone. Please be warned that these games are extremely addictive!
1. Subway Surfers
In Subway Surfers you need to jump on trains and rail roads to collect coins, and to get a higher score. The longer you run, the higher your score will be. You will also get coins, which you can use to buy new boards, characters, boosts and boxes with a surprise present in it. Coins will also give you a point boost at the end of the game, depending on the ammount of coins you collected. You can also link up to Facebook and Game Center to see which one of your friends has the higherst highscore.
2. Temple Run 2
The very succesful game “Temple Run” has come out with a sequel called Temple Run 2. The goal is still the same: Get as many points as you can by jumping and sliding over and through obstacles, while you collect gold as you go. You can spend your gold to buy boosts for your character, like the ability to attract coins longer with a magnet. This game is very addictive, but it also takes up a lot of your battery.
3. Rail Rush
In Rail Rush you are doing something else then running, you are sitting in a mine cart, and you are riding down rails, to collect golden nuggets. You can also unlock special characters, which sometimes carry a special power. Nuggets can also be used to buy upgrades for your mine cart, to prevent crashing into obstacles. You can play this game on your iPhone and Android phone, and it is also available for the PC.
4. Tiny Wings
While all the other running games discussed in this top 5 were in 3D, Tiny Wings is made in 2D. You are playing a little bird who doesn’t know how to fly, so instead it has to jump from hill to hill to collect coins. You have a certain ammount of time per “day”, untill the game runs out. You can level up by completing challenges and you can unlock different nests for your bird.
5. Jetpack Joyride
Jetpack Joyride is a very intensive and hectic running game, that will certainly amuse you. Just like Tiny Wings this game is in 2D, and it is from the same creators as Fruit Ninja. You are playing a guy with a jetpack who needs to fly by all kinds of obstacles who are getting in his way. You can collect coins on the fly, but they are sometimes tricky to get! Nice game overall, with a varied gameplay.
