Top 5 Free Running Game Apps to Download on Your Android and iOS Devices


There are several running games for Android and iOS devices these days. These games involve an odd and sometimes weird looking character who runs in some kind of graphically designed situation. Different games have a different set of missions and different graphic appearance.

The character that runs on the game can be customized to the players likes. The places and the paths where the customized characters run, keeps changing accordingly when the player advances to the higher levels of the game. Most of these game apps are available fee of cost on Google Play Store and iOS Store.


However, it all started with a video game where a character much like a midget cloaked in Blue dungaree and a red full sleeve t-shirt with a hooded cap in his head ran across all the way throughout the game to rescue the princess. The runner in this game is named Mario and this popular game is called Super Mario accordingly.

Moreover, to talk about the modern Android and iOS gaming interface which can be called motion gaming involve gesture control rather that pressing and snapping the buttons of the game controller of X-Box or PlayStation.

The Android or the iOS devices with touchscreen display may involve swiping, tapping, shaking or turning the device in the desired direction where the player wants the character to go. However, gone are those days when Mario use to be the hot chocolate cakes for most of the kids. Just for the record, Super Mario is also available for Android devices but it has failed to retain the popularity and charm like it use to have before.

Anyways, leaving behind all the nostalgic Mario memories which many of us have had, Gizbot has lined up 5 most popular running games for Android and iOS which are available for free on Play Store and iOS Store.
