So Android fans finally rejoiced when Temple Run for the Android platform was announced as available … and free! So I never played this game and do not plan to because games like this do not interest me.
I mean, a game that has no goal or climax other than getting a high score is no fun for me. Sure, I did play Doodle Jump and enjoyed it when I went up against my wife but even I had enough of Doodle Jump.
I kept hearing this game from my friends who kept on suggesting I download it for iOS and Android. After seeing the game, I said to myself “not another Doodle Jump”-a like game.
I am not saying this is a bad game. The graphics are pretty good and overall I think the company behind Temple Run did a good job making this game.
The game forces you to keep on avoiding obstacles as you run away from evil demon monkeys because you have stolen the cursed idol from the temple. Sounds easy? Perhaps. But the pace of the game is what makes this challenging.
The moment you blink could be the moment the game is over so this game tests your reflexes as well. However, this is not my cup of tea so enjoy it if you will.
