"Temple Run" is an endless running game in which the player navigates obstacles and collects coins in order to achieve a high score. It is available for phone and tablet devices running Android, Windows Phone 8 and iTunes systems.
In "Temple Run," the player controls an adventurer attempting to escape from a group of demonic monkeys after infiltrating a forbidden temple. The adventurer is presented with several obstacles to jump over, slide under or simply avoid as he runs along a path that twists and turns unexpectedly. Along the way, the adventurer can collect coins that can be used by the player to purchase power-ups and additional character skins in the game's menu. The game has no ending and only comes to a stop when the adventurer hits a wall, falls off of the course or is slowed down enough by obstacles to be caught by the monkeys. Players move the adventurer left and right by tilting their device. By swiping up or down, players make the adventurer jump or slide, and swiping left or right allows the player to turn onto branching pathways. "Temple Run" has spawned a sequel and two spin-offs based on the Disney/Pixar film "Brave" and the Disney film "Oz: The Great and Terrible."
