Why Are Infinite Runners so popular on mobile?

    I have noticed that lots of games on Android are infinite runners.

    Why are they so popular? The game mechanics are very restrictive (i.e. players have no freedom to explore) and the gameplay is often limited to one button for jump. Or in 3d cases movements for left, right, jump or duck (and fire gun for action games).

    I have tried a lot of them, such as Temple Run and that Panda game, but am failing to understand why so many people like them.

    Because they are easy to just start playing as the controls and goal is self explanatory (don't run into things) and can sometimes be very addicting if you're bored or just want something quick to play while you're waiting for something.
