Temple run by Imagi in short is highly, superbly and shockingly addictive for me. I am no gaming junkie but this is something that I have got hooked onto. It is basically a running game in which your explorer has to collect coins and avoid obstacles. But there is something about the situation that the game puts you in, the narrow lane and the demonic spirits chasing the character, added with the background music of drums beating that gets you into the competitive mode. The character actually steals an idol from the temple and then the spirits start to chase him outside the temple. Hence, would give it the title of Temple Run. The more distance that you cover, the faster the speed of your character gets and more difficult it becomes to protect the explorer from hitting into an obstacle.
The game has a built-in store from where you can buy different additional benefits that will boost your score in some way or the other. You have to achieve high scores, which will add certain amount of coins into your account to enable you to buy things. Apart from this there are objectives that need to be fulfilled. For each objective you fulfill, your score gets a higher multiplier which in turn gives you a higher score. Increasing the multiplier makes it easier to increase score every time that you play.
The game developers came up with newer variants of temple run to entice the audience. It now has Temple Run: Brave too. This one game has made the Imagi studio so popular that it is even more well-known than Zynga.
Some of the perks of Temple Run are that there are no multiple stages or a constant storyline that needs to be followed. You can just keep increasing your score to beat your friends. It does get quite repetitive after a while. But for a beginner it is usually something that is hard to let go of.
Other games on iOS that are like temple run are Subway Surfers, Aby Escape, Nosferatu, Mega Jump, Falling Fred, Canabalt, Jetpack Joy Ride and many more! All these games have one thing in common. They are full of never-ending fun! I am trying to get my hands on the new iPhone 5 so that I can try all these games on it and see what the hype is all about.
