Temple Run by Imangi Studios, LLC is a treasure hunting adventure that has taken over the app world! Not only does it rank as the NUMBER ONE top-free app, but it also ranks as the NUMBER ONE top-grossing app! These statistics, alone, are reason enough to download this addictive phenomenon.
Temple Run is a running game that uses your iPhone’s touch screen as a controller. Quickly swipe your finger to turn, jump and slide! Similar to an Indiana Jones theme, beware of booby traps and curses! During your Temple Run adventure, you are given a list of 36 objectives to try and achieve. An example would be the following:
Objective Title: Goal (to achieve the objective): Reward:
Sprinter Run 1,000 meters 10 points
Fantastic Four Unlock four characters 5 points
Your stats, including your highest score, longest run and most coins, are recorded within the app. Coins are used to unlock power-ups, characters and wallpapers. If you’re out of coins and impatient, you can use an in-app purchase to advance yourself more quickly.
Through your Temple Run adventure, you will have to duck under trees and fires. Jump over ruins and other obstacles to survive. Use sharp swipes to keep yourself (who doesn’t stop running) on the temple’s bridge without falling off into the water. You even have to get away from the demon guardians who sometimes chase you. There are coins lined up on the temple’s walkway, be sure to tilt your iPhone to whatever side they are on, to get them!
Not only is Temple Run’s game play extremely addictive, always giving you more challenges to overcome, but their graphics are awesome! The water below the bridge you’re running on looks 3D as it moves showing depth like real water does! The animation is ideal, giving you a solid Indiana Jones feel with the temple, bridges, ruins and fire!
