In theory, the best thing about the endless running genre is that it's endless - you can have unlimited entertainment for your money.
Conversely, the worst thing about the endless running genre is that there's no possible redemption if the core gameplay is flawed. If one bit's bad the whole game is bad, forever.
Need for speed
That's the problem with Action Driver, the latest casual offering from the ridiculously prolific minds at Donut Games - a publisher with more than its fair share of pick-up-and-play gems in its back catalogue.
Sadly, Action Driver isn't one of them, offering a highway sprint of miniscule thrills and mildly diverting spills as you pootle forwards in the single-minded pursuit of highscores.
An unexceptional endless racer that's competent enough for a few minutes busywork but far from the best the App Store has to offer
