The sequel to one of the most addictive running game, Temple Run, is now amongst us. Conveniently called Temple Run 2, the game is available on iOS now and will be available for Android devices next week (bummer!). The game can be downloaded for free for iOS.
Temple Run 2 brings with it a bunch of new features such as navigating perilous cliffs, zip lines, mines and forests as you try to escape with the cursed idol. The question remains, how far can you run?
The premise of Temple Run 2 is essentially the same as its predecessor. You have stolen the golden idol and must run as far away from the monkey as possible. There are many obstacles that will plague your path and you must swipe and tilt your device to avoid them. The addition of a zip line, twisting paths and a cart are definite improvements. Veteran fans of the franchise will feel right at home and the game is easy to pick up and play for new comers as well.
