Temple Run (iPhone) Review

A friend of mine recommended Imangi’s Temple Run for the iPhone and as it turned out, the game has become my most played game during my trip at Hong Kong. The key here lies in the gameplay, which takes traditional 2D endless running games like Chop Chop Ninja and shifts their core mechanics into 3D.


The result is an Indiana Jones-like adventure running through beautifully realized temple ruins. Running away from what exactly? The 3D models don’t tell much but they look to be primates. Players need to slide their finger up or down the screen to cause their intrepid hero to jump over or slide under obstacles.

It’s a pretty cool game and ideal for casual gameplay whether you are commuting on a train (which I’ve done a lot during the past few days) or while waiting for your spouse during on of her shopping sprees (which I’ve done more so than commuting during the same past number of days). The game comes with Game Center achievements and that makes the game a compelling one for those seeking out achievements.

Nine Over Ten 9/10 rates Temple Run at a 4.5 out of 5. Highly Recommended. Check out the game over on the iTunes App Store.
