Temple Run

VictoriaHave you ever watched an Indiana Jones movie and thought "I could totally do all of that stuff. Easy!"? Well, thanks to Imangi Studios, creators of Temple Run, you can give it a shot! Just don't expect hundreds of thousands of adulating fans, actual fortunes gained, or a fine battle-worn fedora to suddenly appear on your melon.

TempleTemple Run is played from a third person perspective as you follow the hero running from an unknown danger. Swipe the screen to dodge, jump, slide, and change direction when a bend in the road appears. Be timely about it, because just like other jump and run games, one early/late move could mean the end of your little jog. Each time you play, the level is randomly generated and you're given a set of objectives to complete; things like collecting a certain amount of coins or running for a certain distance. The longer you run, the harder the level gets. This can be both fun and frustrating, because when you lose it can feel as though you've lost a lot of progress, especially if you have a hard time getting that far in subsequent plays!

Temple Run is a slightly different sort of arcade game, and not just because of its 3D layout and emphasis on being a handsome action hero. There are coins to collect, items to buy, and epic power-ups to use to help you stay alive and running. It's definitely a nice change from the majority of mobile games on the market. If you're searching for a fun action game, or if you're just a fan of Indiana Jones, make sure you check this one out!

NOTE: This game was played and reviewed on a Motorola Atrix. Game was available in the North American market at the time of publication, but may not be available in other territories. Please see individual app market pages for purchasing info.

I personally love how you've separated out the content - but would it be an easy fix to reflect this in your RSS?

[Yes, we will have separate RSS feeds for each division very soon. They're coming. -Jay]

Wait months for temple run to come to android. It's not supported on my phone. /siiiiigh

The Android version is great although it seems to be harder by an order of magnitude when compared to the iPhone one. They are identical at the start, but after certain distance instead of getting slightly faster the Android version switches to the "ludicrous" speed setting. Fun but... kinda impossible.

It doesn't detract from the experience though. The only problem is dealing with irritating iPhone people who boast about their high scores. :P
