"In pretty much every treasure hunting adventure movie there’s one specific scene in which the plucky hero finally gets his hands on the treasure but then has to navigate a maze of booby traps in order to get out alive. Temple Run is this scene and nothing else. And it’s amazing." -

From the makers of the award-winning best-seller Harbor Master® comes the most exhilarating running game on the App Store. Test your reflexes as you race down ancient temple walls and along sheer cliffs. Swipe to turn, jump and slide to avoid obstacles, collect coins and buy power ups, and see how far you can run!

Very fun game 👍 but there is one thing I would like to complain about ! When you are running and you jump up to get a boost ... (It's a red picture of someone, the picture is floating in the air) it then goes really fast and boost you up a bit, and for a little time after the boost had slowed down it has a blue glowing floor that fills the gaps up that if the blue glowing floor wasn't there your character would fall down the gaps in the ground, when the blue glowing floor starts to flash it means it is going to run out and your character can now fall into the gaps, everytime it does I am always running over the gap, it ran out and I fell into the gap because nobody can help how fast their character goes so sometimes the character isn't fast enough and doesn't make it, I think it is unfair ? Because one time I was on a really high number and I was running over the gap as the blue ground was flashing but I can't stop so I had to risk it and I fell into the gap, I would like some changes in that. Apart from that the app is really good ! I would consider getting it if running away from massive monkeys is your thing. The graphics is really good and clear, not to many adds, they don't tend to come up during the game, beware, the game is very addicting ! Enjoy :)

Improvements needed. 👎

I downloaded the app and the first thing that came into my mind is the graphics and the features this app has. For example, the graphics are a little strange and if you compare Temple Run and Temple Run 2 together the graphics are completely different from each other. ❓

Here's something I didn't like: the controls are very confusing as you have to swipe to turn, turn your device over, etc. I guess you can earn more experience over time but this app isn't recommended for you if your a slow learner and not use to confusing instructions. ❌

I am not here to just criticise this app. I still enjoy the apps purpose and I like the story line. 👍There's a lot of characters to choose from and I love the options you can have when playing this game. Sorry to say but this app isn't for me though. I honestly recommend Temple Run 2 and Subway Surfers, when needed improvements are made and the graphics are fantastic. 2/5 ⭐️ until these improvements are made but 2 stars for the excellent app you have provided.


This game is the worst game i have ever come across. This game is teaching children to run away from scary monkeys that are like about to eat them. I do not think this sort of behaviour is recommended for persons trying to be part of society. The characters are revolting and are basically telling our children about cleavage. Stop this game before it destroys many hearts for good. Otherwise i could sue many good people if u do not do something about it. they are just following your instructions so give them a break for once. They could use a coffee break once in a while if you don't mind. these poor innocent people are slaves of your imagination that needs to be locked in a cage so just shut this stupendous game down! Ciao ciao all!🐞
