Games are not ranked in any particular order.
1. GrimJoggers by 10tons Ltd
GrimJoggers is an innovative interpretation on the classic side scrolling platformer. You control 15 joggers and escort them through different areas full of various fatal obstacles and gaps as the joggers speed increases as you cover more and more ground.
What makes GrimJoggers so special is that you are controlling all 15 joggers at once. You must account for how your jumps affect each individual jogger based on where he is in the line. The game doesn’t end until all your joggers have perished. The controls are extremely simple, tap to jump and double-tap to double jump. This is a must have but just a warning its highly addictive especially when you have someone who constantly tries to outscore you.
