Canabalt HD is the remastered original platform action game which gave its name to the genre
Lots of Android games are Canabalt-like games, only one is Canabalt itself: Canabalt HD. It has been remastered to let you choose between classic 2D artwork or new 3D artwork. No matter the time since its first release, it's still such as addictive as it used to be. It isn't a coincidence that it became a genre by itself.
Canabalt HD is a platform action game in which a man is running over buildings. The purpose is keeping the guy running by jumping gaps, avoiding obstacles and get as far as you can. Yes, through endless levels that are randomly generated. If you fall down the cliff you'll have to start again, if you hit an obstacle the guy slows down. Although the distance of the gaps depends on the running speed, so if you fall down it's not because the running speed but that you jumped ahead of time.
And that's it, simple retro-graphics and simple gameplay and, however, as addictive as always. For nostalgics and newbies, this game is timeless

I not really much into games but this one is definitely an exemption along with Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP. I fancy the look and feel and not to mention the overall gameplay.
One of the nicer, more impressive android games. The only drawback is the "one mistake and you're dead", but it's the nature of this type of game. It plays differently each time, too. --Bugfix: Ringtones from the game stopped working recently. My Nexus 5 didn't show them if I used an Android file manager to copy them (rebooting didn't help). FIX: Use a PC and a USB cable to copy the MP3s to the a
