Your favorite endless-runner games on Windows Phone

With dozens of endless-runner games available on your Lumia, we wanted to know which was your favorite via a very unscientific poll. Here are the results.

Topping this poll, with 22 percent of the total vote, is the free game Lara Croft: Relic Run.


In true Lara Croft style, you control the English archaeologist by making her jump, swing, dive, parkour, and run as she tries to save the world from impending doom.

With breathtakingly beautiful locations, crystal clear sound effects, and a multitude of different moves that include shooting bad guys and riding a quad bike, it’s no wonder this is a favorite of many.

Launched on Windows Phone in May, Crossy Road (free) is your second favorite endless-runner game with 20 percent of the vote.

Crossy Road

While Crossy Road is what the developer calls an ‘endless hopper’, rather than a runner, the aim is to move your character as far as possible dodging traffic, jumping rivers, and avoiding trains, all the while collecting coins.

The more coins you collect, the more money you’ll have to purchase new fun characters within the game.

Subway Surfers (free) makes it to the number three spot on this poll, with 14 percent of the vote.


A modern classic when it comes to endless-runner games, Subway Surfers is about a boy (or girl, depending on the character you select) who doesn’t just ride the train, he rides the train. On top of it!

Of course this isn’t condoned in any part of the world, and that’s why the ticket inspector gives chase to try to stop you.

Power-ups make your getaway easier, but get caught and it’s game over.

Thanks again for voting. Are you surprised by the votes?
