A number of dashing or running games swarmed the Google Play Store after the much-celebrated Temple Run. But, if you are looking for another variation with some uniqueness mixed in, check out Mad Dash.

Developed by CITY-GAMES, Mad Dash follows the story of Kuzco as he runs and dodge obstacles to pass his gym class. He shouldn’t flunk the subject or else, his right to rule his kingdom will be taken away from him.

These transformations will come in handy especially when you have to dodge obstacles that can’t normally be avoided by Kuzco’s human form.
