Temple run...

I have to say ever since I have got this game I have not taken my eyes off my phone!
It is a very addictive game and is a really good and fun way to cheer you up if you are sad or give you something to do if you are bored!
Although there are some negative points and reviews I would like to add...I find sometimes it is too addictive as my friends and family are physically glued to there phone.
They used to love there walks or imaginary games but now they are sat on there phones.
I would love for them to pick up a book or take our dog out for a walk etc...
If you are looking for a game for your friends,family,children or yourself and you want to be on it for ages then temple run Is for you but if you want a game that you can play for no more than 15 mins then temple run may not be up your street.
It’s a fantastic game but is very addictive and I found I was on it once for 1hour 28 minutes when I thought I was on it for only a couple of minutes.
Ending this on a high,I love the game and recommend it to all you wonderful people who have trouble finding games that you will do thoroughly enjoy then download temple run...what’s your highest score?...can you beat your family and friends?
Good luck 😀

Temple run review


I’ve been playing temple run for a few weeks now. I wouldn’t say it was the worst , but I wouldn’t call it the best. See what I mean? Anyway, for an adventure game, it’s pretty good, tho. I’d definitely recommend it for people with concentration problems, as it is very demanding and if you trip your basically done. There are no levels so the game is anonymous, but it is very addictive and very fun. However, I do think we can CHOOSE are avatars as we are the players. Otherwise, this is a really fun game and always cease to impress. That is why I’m giving this game three stars, not bad.

What did you do!?!


I hadn't played the game since before the April 10th 2018 update, but after starting it up today I have to ask: why did you change anything? The menus are darker and the text has become harder to read, the models have become less detailed somehow, the invisibility in particular both makes the character look like a blue jelly baby and doesn't let you know when it is about to wear off and the controls have become so over-sensitive that it is near impossible to control. This game was once one of, if not the best games on the AppStore. Now, however, it looks like just another Temple Run knock-off that looks and plays like crap.
