[Review] Temple Run 2: Take The Idol If You Dare!

Temple Run 2, the sequel to the smash hit Temple Run, has now become the fastest-spreading mobile game ever. Undoubtedly, this is another “endless runner” where you run through never-ending stony ruins, pulling off impossible 90-degree turns, leaping impediments, sliding beneath jets of fire, and a baleful jungle beasts are coming after you.

Our Review

Temple Run has been downloaded and played by more than 170 million people across all platforms. After that kind of success, Imangi Studios has come up with Temple Run 2 that has added elements where the first Temple Run lagged. In this game, the adventurer (that’s you) swipes the beast’s precious idol and that doesn’t seem to go over too well. So now, you’ve to run for your life. Temple Run 2 is a perfect game to play with just a single free hand, for a few minutes at a time or for hours on end, as you tirelessly try to top your best run.


Sky temple environment of Temple Run 2 is awesome. Textures and animation, both help to make the sequel feel like a more visually refined experience. Three different environments have also added in this game, but I think, they could have added more environments to make it more attractive. Adding mining cart sections is a major improvement, focusing even more on split-second reactions; the mine cart will tilt as you take it through a set of tunnels. Another thing what you will notice right away is that you are no longer running down completely a straight path, instead most of it is curved.


Temple Run 2 brings back 4 playable characters to unlock. They are named as Guy Dangerous, Scarlett Fox, Barry Bones, and Karma Lee. Although they have totally different skins, they all play exactly the same! Each character carries a single special manual power-up. These power-ups can be used in the game any time as soon as your coin meter fills.


And the most wanted part of Temple Run 2 is “gems.” When you die, you have a few seconds to hit a “Save Me!” button, which will let you continue your run for a single gem. The cost to continue doubles in gems each time (possibly there’s a limitation of how many times you can use “Save me”) that I just haven’t seen yet. This gems are far rarer, and they also act as a means of currency. People who don’t want to waste a lot of time on the game collecting coins, can get 5000 coin pack for $0.99 (69p), and they can go all the way up to 400,000 coins for $19.99 (£13.99).

In the conclusion, with the addition of a new environment containing some interesting elements, as well as new obstacles during your trip, Temple Run 2 remains a very visually pleasing title that you’ll quickly find yourself picking up when you have few spare minutes.

I would suggest you not to start playing to reach to the top of the leaderboards. Just play! You will make it surely!
