"In pretty much every treasure hunting adventure movie there’s one specific scene in which the plucky hero finally gets his hands on the treasure but then has to navigate a maze of booby traps in order to get out alive. Temple Run is this scene and nothing else. And it’s amazing." -

Lots of fun, but too many ads

Temple Run was one of the first apps I got on my phone several years ago and I loved it. Stopped playing it for a while so after much deliberation I deleted it. Re-downloaded it today because I needed a fun game on my phone. Very happy with it, aside from ads popping up every single time you die. Yes, if you would like to continue the run you're on, watching an ad is appropriate to get that ability. However, if you press the button to decline the offer, you shouldn't have to watch an ad anyway to do anything else in the app. It's very annoying, especially if you're listening to music on your phone while playing- then every time an ad pops up the music stops and you have to resume it when the ad ends.

Huge disappointment

I enjoyed the game initially but I noticed more problems the more I played. First, I like playing skill based games not dependent on upgrades so I never go to the shop. I noticed the closer you get to 1m you will come to forks and whether you turn left or right the path has been cut off. The game doesn’t even pick up on me jumping although it’s going so fast most people wouldn’t even think to jump, I guessed the game would have one of those forks, jumped immediately, yet I still fell in the water. There are certain points early game where you are required to jump at a broken bridge but you don’t have the ability to even cover the distance because you haven’t built enough momentum. That’s the most idiotic thing about the game is the faster you run the more likely you’ll turn and the road has been cut off to quickly for you to jump. I’m not talking about going to a fork where you see the left or right has been cut off. I’m talking about both sides look viable to turn but all of a sudden it’s a cut off as soon as you turn. I know this game has been out for a while but I never was into phone games but I thought I would give this game a try and was very disappointed. Temple run 2 doesn’t even look good enough to try.

not even a minute into the game....

I remember playing this game all the time as a kid and when i saw it in the app store again, I decided to give it a go again. It downloaded in less than a minute and I entered the app, like any normal game. Not even a full minute into the game, I was going through the tutorial and my player kept on disappearing into thin air and it just restarted the tutorial again. I don’t remember this ever happening when I used to play this as a kid. I still really wanted to actually play the game so i restarted the app and still, it happens once again. I then restarted my PHONE, because maybe it was my devices problem. I load the app again and still, my player disappears about 20 seconds into the game MULTIPLE TIMES. I can’t even make it through the tutorial without it crashing!!!! I’m really disappointed because like I said, this game was so much fun to play as a kid and for it not even to work is just sad. Playing this years ago I would give it a 5 star review but playing this in the present is just a disappointing 1 star review.
