Glitchy in certain ways
Hello and welcome to my review on Temple Run.
Temple run is a "phenomenon that took the world by storm", and is made by Imangi Studios, LLC. In Temple Run, you are running from these evil demon monkeys that want to kill you and eat you. The further you run the better score you get, and the more coins you get the more upgrades you can get. There are multiple upgrades, but I won't get into that just yet, or maybe I won't at all.
This is a fast paced game, and the only way to stay up to speed with it is to have no distractions. I will admit, it starts off slow, but once you get the hang of it and are getting over 500k points, it will go fast. Let alone, at that speed sometimes the controls get confusing, you have about 3 seconds to think what your going to do before a tree hits you, or you fall off a cliff. "What should I do", "Up or down", "Wait... Too late".
The controls are simple, tilt, up down left and right. You use these controls to, well, control your character to collect coins, power-ups, and to avoid obstacles.
This game has Game Center connectivity, so you can challenge your friends, try and beat each others score and have fun. There is no real multiplayer in this game, which is kind of annoying, since I could see a lot of people having fun if there was 2 player.
That's enough good stuff about the game, now lets get onto the not-so-good stuff. This game doesn't have as good as what I've seen in other games. Temple Run 2 has better graphics, and is the sequel to this game. This game is also glitchy in parts of the game, like turning. Sometimes when you want your character to turn, it waits 1-2 seconds before it responds. But saying this, sometimes this glitch can be useful if you accidentally swiped your screen too early and are regretting it.
Coins, coins, coins. Coins is the currency in this game, and can be used to buy power ups, utilities, new characters and even wallpapers for your device. Some of the utilities offered are revival passes and head starts. The power ups include mega coins, coin magnet, invisibility, boots and coin values. Revival passes aren't called 'Revival Passes', and are actually called 'Resurrection'.
Over time, this game does get kinda boring, since, really, all you do is touch your screen in directions.
Temple Run 2 brings a whole new aspect of fun into this series of games, and if you ever get bored of number one, but still want to play a game like this, try out Temple Run 2.
This person can somehow run for over 3,000 meters and not get tired.
Ya know what, screw logic.
