The End App
Free | iOS
The End App is a very ambitious take on the endless running theme. It is a lot more complex than the others, as the street is wider and the twists and turns are more intricate. The End of the world has arrived, and you are running away from lava and nuclear wreckage as you collect green duct-tape, which has apparently become the currency with which to buy items for your survival camp. Jump over overturned police cars and street-side lava pools until you can’t handle the speed any longer. The End App is heavily based around specific challenges that you can overcome one-by-one, but if you prefer less structured gameplay just keep running forever in “Freerun” mode.
