Subway Surfers – Download Grátis
Released in September 2012, Subway Surfers is my favorite running style game. You control some boys whose mission is not to get caught by the subway line guard. What draws attention in the game, in addition to the colorful graphics, is the fluid and precise gameplay that makes the pastime addictive.
Bad Piggies – Download Grátis
The game of the Angry Birds' arch enemies, got their own game in 2012. A different game from where they originated. Focusing on construction and creativity rather than destruction and repetition. Bad Piggies is a game that seemed silly to me at first, but over time it turned out to be great through the dozens of challenges that the game offers.
Jetpack Joyride – Download Grátis
This is one of the best running style games for iOS. Launched in 2011 for iOS, the game only arrived this year on Android. You control an upset salesman who goes crazy when he finds a JetPack. With music, graphics and cool gameplay, it's very hard not to like Jetpack Joyride, especially after the updates that included several new elements in the game.

League of Evil is a retro game with an air of Megaman from Nintendo 8 bits. With short but challenging stages, the game has only 160 stages. The great highlights of this one are the precise controls and the difficulty of some stages.
Angry Birds Star Wars – Free Download
The unlikely happened, Star Wars and Angry Birds have come together in a fun game for Android.

Happy Street is a game in which you'll have to take care of these cute little animals' homes. It might not be a lot of people's favorite style, but the game is a hit on Google Play.
