Temple Run Oz is the second Temple Run game to be based on a movie. We have seen Temple Run Brave launch before this. Brave was an animated movie by Disney/Pixar and the game was launched for both, iOS and Android with the launch of the film. Temple Run Brave brought with it features from the movie such as archery – tap targets to shoot a bulls eye and earn extra coins, more vibrant visuals, new environments inspired by Disney/Pixar Brave and the wilds of Scotland and Outrun Mordu, the demon bear, to earn running glory. You can take a look at the details of Temple Run Brave here.
Seeing the success of the Temple Run franchise, it is a no brainer that Disney would launch Temple Run Oz to tie in with the release of the movie and cash in on the franchise. The mechanics of the game are simple and intuitive where users swipe and tilt the device to make the character on screen avoid obstacles and keep running in this endless running game. Gamers can also target the high score on the leaderboard to show soff their gaming skills in front of their friends.
