It's called Before the Nexus, and is sort of a prequel to the Ratchet & Clank game released last month for PS3.

BtN popped up on iTunes and Google Play recently, with very little fanfare (I guess the game descriptions are fairly enthusiastic). You jump between grindrails, dodging obstacles and ruining enemies' day along the way. Standard endless runner fare. You also collect Raritanium, which can by synced to your PSN account to be used in Into the Nexus to buy upgrades with.

Yay for sony developing for mobile so that even they don't have to make games for the vita.

An endless runner seems like a major downgrade for ratchet and clank, and kind of takes away what the appeal of the franchise actually is. It's not a terrible idea to put versions of your franchise on mobile, to introduce them to new audiences or let adults who've known them for a while play away from home, it's not like you have a struggling handheld or anything. It's not like you have a playstation mobile platform that you've completely failed to even get off the ground. Yay for sony.
