Recently Temple Run Was released for android. The game has already got thumbs up in the Apple App Store and became a user and critic favorite. It has been ported for android but once again the question rises about whether the high-level iOS experience has been preserved in Android or not. Well, the developers have certainly done a very good job.
When installing Temple Run it required the following permissions:
- Network communication: full Internet access
- Memory contents of the USB memory and the SD card, delete / modify
If you are not already so familiar with this game: Temple Run is a very addictive classic platform game. The player takes on the role of an adventurer, on the run from monkeys and monsters. Exactly they neither look like monkeys nor monsters and cannot be defined exactly, So we will call them monstrous apes.
On the run, everytime you will get a diverse path and have to avoid obstacles and overcome them. The race will run automatically, the Dodge is accomplished by swiping on the touch screen: Left or right, you turn like a wiper in the appropriate direction, jump or crouch is accomplished by wiping gestures up and down. That’s about pretty much everything you need to know about the controls.
During the escape coins must be collected, which you can trade for power-ups The frequency of arrival of the obstacles increases, the farther you get in game. At some point, a good reflexes and skill is required. The graphics are well worth seeing. Thanks to constant change of environment we don’t get bored watching same graphics.
While playing, there may be occasional slight stuttering, especially in the entry level smartphones or older devices might encounter this problem. Otherwise, the game ran smoothly and without crashes. The touchscreen responded accurately to all inputs, and prepared for the operation, no problems.
With Temple Run for android the developers have done excellent work. The game runs smoothly and largely without glitches. The game world is not revolutionizing, but succeeds in something else that is often a side effect of simple games: It’s addictive!
If you like games that are based on a simple principle, and yet doesn’t bore then Temple Run is among the best choices.
