Temple Run 2 is an exciting arcade game in which you have to run through ancient temples, dark caves and other exotic locations, avoiding all kinds of dangers on your way. Following the first installment of the series, this game brings you even more content, more fast-paced and dynamic gameplay, and more beautiful graphics.
Run Like Hell
Temple Run 2 has a pretty simple gameplay concept. As in the first game, you run through levels full of various dangers and sharp turns, and your job is to jump and turn at the right time. However, you are no longer limited to making just right turns: your path turns left and right – and goes up and down, making the game a bit more interesting to look at. Actually, everything in Temple Run 2 is visually better: there are lots of visual improvements like more detailed models, high-quality textures, and decorations which are much more varying now. All in all, the game looks beautiful, and it’s quite uncommon for an arcade game.
However, new visual style isn’t the only major change: Temple Run 2 features four different characters you can unlock, and each of them has a unique set of abilities and upgrades. This makes the game even more varying by allowing you to choose your own style – and motivates you to progress further. There are also many useful power-ups along your way which can help you gather coins, protect you from any threat or allow your character to turn automatically. These power-ups really come in handy since dying means you have to start the same level all over again – unless you have a green gem that sometimes get spawned on your way.
In addition to new power-ups and characters, Temple Run 2 features a variety of new levels that look a lot better than in the first game. They can feature special segments, including zip lines that allow you to slow down your character to gather coins more effectively – and mine carts that make you lean right or left to avoid obstacles. The game also features much more achievements you can earn, so it’s more fun to explore. However, these challenges usually require that you revisit the same level over and over, and failing makes you start the level all over again. You can pay real money to stay on the same stage after death, but it turns out to be quite expensive. This way the game seems to force you into buying another life, so keep an eye out for your kids is you let them play it.
