Here we have a very dynamic arcade game for Windows Phone, Temple Run. At one time, it was one of the most popular games of the category of runners on almost all mobile platforms, and this clearly illustrates that the game turned out to be really of high quality and extremely addictive. The events of this game takes place somewhere in the wilds of a jungle.
The main character, being a treasure hunter, stumbled in the jungle on an ancient temple which was built by representatives of a vanished civilization. People disappeared but the treasures kept existing, and the temple was not empty. Monkeys settled there, and it was so long ago that primates considered the temple their home, and everything was in there their prey. Perhaps they were intentionally left to care for the treasures. History is silent about it. Be that as it may, the main character entered the temple and tried to take the golden idol out of it. The monkeys did not like it, and rushed off in pursuit of the thief.
Now the fate of the main character is in your hands, and it depends on you alone whether he will get out of the maze or not. Scared to death, treasure hunter forgot the way back and got lost in the maze. It is clear that the game does not provide a way out of the endless corridors, but it's in your power to make the main character live longer. All you need in this game is agility and excellent response. While running you need to jump over obstacles or slide under them on the back, cling to the walls, and turn at intersections on time.
ControllingControlling in the game is carried out by means of accelerometer and touch screen. With the help of accelerometer our hero is able to dodge the path avoiding an abyss and collecting gold powerups that increase your score along with the distance traveled. With vertical gestures you can make the main character jump over the obstacle and fall back to slip under another obstacle, and with horizontal gestures you can turn at intersections.
ResumeObstacles and powerupsAs obstacles there will be precipices, fallen trees and their roots, fiery gates, and intersections. Points earned in the game can be used as currency in the embedded store for the purchase of a variety of bonuses. This way you can speed up the main character and make him invisible, or allow to collect all the coins even from a distance. The game features three-dimensional graphics of excellent quality, thanks to which you can admire the beauty of the wild jungle and other elements of the landscape. You can download Temple Run for free and enjoy the game as more than 200 million users do.
