"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!

Didn’t stand the test of time


Back in the day I would play this game nonstop, however re-downloading years latter I found the controls to be clunky and awkward, and that’s because most endless runner style games moved to a three lane format which works heaps better then tilt. Aside from being a fun nostalgic trip down memory lame it hasn’t aged well and just isn’t worth playing today.

Best app ever

Best fun free game ever!!! With no pressure to get in app purchases you have the freedom to enjoy the game without pesky setbacks. Also you Collect coins which actually give you a reward in return and enhance your gameplay making it very addictive with real goals like buying a certain power up. You Also have objectives to master as an added bonus and you can change characters!! The good thing about this is it's easy to get the hang of and will never get boring. Great graphics and very original. You won't be seeing me put down this game any soon and I don't expect anyone else to as well! :)

Pure fun . . . and genius


I had my doubts when I first looked at Temple Run, but then I thought whatever, it's free so I might as well try it– one of my best app decisions!
It's so simple, but so addictive and fun; the creators of this app deserve a huge clap.
Do I have any suggestions? Well, maybe add more things to the shop, and have new places like African plains, temple in Antarctica . . . things like that would really add even more fun and extra spice to this game.
Anyone who's considering Temple Run for their iPhone, iPod, or iPad should definitely give it a go– it's immensely satisfying!
