Sometimes life throws a pack of mummies and raging bulls at you, and the only thing to do is run like heck. I Hate Running Backwards is an endless runner that mixes close call dodges with loud weaponry. As the screen fills with enemies and explosions, it gets harder and harder to run away. It's a furious race for safety and a great way to blow off some steam.

Void Wisp is an arcade game all about soothing soundscapes and living life as close to the edge as possible. Players control a small mote of light floating through an obstacle course of shapes and laser beams that create noise the closer you get to them. In order to get the most points, players need to grind as close as possible to obstacles and narrowly avoid projectiles. It's tricky but also soothing.

Endless runners are simple games. The genre, popularised by titles such as Temple Run and Jetpack Joyride, has players running endlessly and grabbing coins. Well, for one young man in China's Macao, the endless run's earned him a pay cheque of over $3700.
