"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!


"Best endless running game in the App Store… You'll love every minute." -

Literally makes my heart pound faster

This game is so addicting and GREAT. The best thing about it is that you can completely earn your accomplishments without any hidden purchases - you can completely beat it for FREE! Purchases make it easier, but I love that the free version is not impossible, unlike other games.

I can feel actual, physical responses as I get further and faster into the level. My heart rate goes up and I get so nervous because I want to beat my high score. I can feel fight or flight somewhat - except there's no fight..

The beauty of this game is in its simplicity. Temple Run 2 is a little "fancier," but I deleted it because it just had too much with the rivers, etc. I'll stick with running, thanks! This is a great pick-up-and-go game.. Unless you play it for hours like me.. I agree with the person who said this makes Drs offices more fun. Hands down, the best passer of time app on iOS that I've found thus far. Highly recommend.

Dread waiting in the doctors office with nothing to do

I have recently turned to games to keep me entertained while waiting at my doctor appointments - of which I have many - and have found that this is one of my favorites. It makes the time pass so quickly that I'm often wishing when they call my name that I had a few more minutes so I can finish the game I'm on. What I have found is that I now understand how my kids could spend hours upon hours playing. I have come home from an appointment and go back to the game only to find I have just spent two hours playing. I recommend this game for the "older crowd" for several reasons. A few of them are…it takes your mind off of the waiting and wondering, improves your motor skills, keeps you in touch of what your kids and grandkids are talking about, it is free - most of us are on a limited budget - and most of all it introduces you to a whole new world of entertainment.
