Competing adventure apps just can’t match up with Imangi’s new Temple Run 2.

Temple Run 2 is an addicting game of endless running and is a sequel to the original game of the same name. It is growing in popularity and is said to have over 170 million downloads. 

It has the same basic plot and controls as the original temple run but introduces a new setting and obstacles. Another new thing is that instead of the three monkeys chasing Guy Dangerous, the protagonist, a single large monkey is the main antagonist of the game. New power-ups can also be purchased with the coins earned during gameplay.

Graphics are a major improvement from the previous version. One will encounter rivers, mine shafts, zip lines, forests and cliffs instead of the usual barricades just thrown out in the original Temple Run.

The ‘save me’ option where if one has enough diamonds that are collected during game play, can save the player’s life.

Imangi Studios still needs to improve upon the glitches such as the game restarting which occurs during game play but other than these small errors this game hit the mark.

Temple Run 2 is free for all users and allows unlimited access.

With Temple Run 2’s countless random game sequences, one is always surprised at what will come next.
