Temple Run is a very addictive game. When this game first came out, one of my friends was one of the first 50 people to download it. My friend showed me the game which looked pretty neat and better than most other run games, then not long afterwards, everywhere I looked people were playing the game. This game has become infectious, as it has good replay value.
You can swipe upwards to jump over an object, or swipe downwards to slide under an obstacle. The swipe controls are quite sensitive with minimum lag for good responsive game play.Â There are a host of hazards that you meet on your escape run, such as sheer drops, tree roots, low tunnels and fire.Â The idea of the game is to collect coins to upgrade your character. The upgrades include such upgrades as: mega coin, coin magnet, invisibility, double coin values and boost.Â There are many objectives that are given in the game, such as Novice Runner, Adventurer and Treasure Hunter objectives, to name but a few.
The 3D graphics are excellent and you never get tired of the game, less so than other run games. This game reminds me of the addictive replay value of games like ‘Infinity Blade’, where even though you are running around the same scenery many times, it seems like a new game every time.
When you pause the game, the developers have put in a really neat countdown feature which gives you time to prepare yourself before the game plays again.
This game has definitely made it into the featured section, as it is one of the most addictive run games I’ve ever played.
I would have liked it even more if the controls were easier.
