A great game, but some flaws

I’d like to start off by saying I really love the game. The concept is fairly original, and it’s simple and fun to play. But there are two things I don’t like. For starters, the fact that you have to tilt your device to get the coins. It seems unnecessary and I feel it would just be easier to swipe left and right. The other thing I dislike is how it gets faster and faster as time goes on. It gets quite hard to use and I feel myself getting stressed. Other than that though, I absolutely love the game. One of my favorite things it that you can customize your avatar. I also really enjoy the landscape design, it seems random but it’s really beautiful and detailed and and it brings the perfect idea of a jungle. One other note I have, however, is that the obstacles become repetitive and boring after time goes on, so maybe add different obstacles each time you unlock an achievement. Overall though, I love the concept and the game is just so much fun to play. Thank you to the developers for making it!

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.

This game is fun and the concept is original. I like that you can upgrade your upgrades and change your character/avatar, but there is one major downside to the game as well. First off all, After you die in the game, you are offered 2 options; 1. Quit/Don’t revive, or 2. Watch an Ad to revive/Keep running. Even when I press the first option, an Ad is played. I don’t know why there is even an option when this happens 95% of the time that I press the button. It is aggravating that I am spending more time watching ads than playing the game. But even though that is a major issue, I do think the game is fun and exiting. It’s very similar to some other endless run games like Subway Surfers, but I do also appreciate how simple Temple Run is. Thank You for reading my review! 🖤
