Temple Run is an addictive running game for iOS where you must escape a hoard of flesh-eating monkeys by charging through a maze of booby-trapped temples.

Run for your life

The game starts with a scene of you being chased out of a temple by a pack of scary screaming monkey creatures, and from here on you have to keep running for as long as you can. Imagine Usain Bolt playing Indiana Jones and you get an idea of what the gameplay is like.

Along the way you also need to collect coins in Temple Run which you can use to upgrade with new power-ups, utilities and characters. It's great that you can upgrade without using real money, like many freemium iPhone games (though you can if you want to).

Temple Run is a very more-ish game where you'll want to keep restarting in order to beat your furthest run and complete the many and varied challenges.

Keep on running

The controls in Temple Run are simple to pick up. You tilt your device to weave along the paths and swipe sideways to turn corners. Swipe up to jump over a gap or obstacle and down to slide under something.

How does it look?

The 3D graphics in Temple Run are very good and have an Indiana Jones feel to them. The Aztec bongo soundtrack fits well with the exotic vibe too. Perhaps the only complaint you can make about Temple Run is that there is little variation in the scenarios. It would be nice if there were a variety of locations available rather than just the temples.

The verdict

Temple Run is a fast and furious endless running game that will keep you coming back time and again.
