Temple Run Review

Temple Run is like a treasure hunting adventure movie where the hero explorer gets the treasure but needs to manage a maze of booby traps in order to survive, all while running in a speed which wouldn’t shame a marathon runner. Temple run is all about running, jumping and sliding through a temple and even collect coins to buy power ups that you use to cheat death constantly. Players control a character that is being chased by apes wearing skull masks and other baddies, and let me tell you this right now – they are not gonna stop chasing! You have a lot to do in this game such as sliding under flaming hoops, jump over drowned trees and find the way out to keep you alive. Rest assure your adrenalin levels are going to pump up!


The star of the game is a character that calls himself Guy Dangerous, and together with his fellow explorers they steal a rare idol from a very ancient temple, something very exotic. The game starts in the second you grab the idol as you take control over Guy, but in the second you do, a group of savage monkeys starts to chase you out of the temple, and this is where all the running begins. You can jump, duck and turn by pressing buttons or tilting your device. Temple Run is going to keep you on your feet, or better put on your hands for the entire session because the action is non-stop!
