Description

In Temple Run the player takes on the role of an explorer name Guy Dangerous. He took the precious idol away from the temple and as a consequence he's relentlessly pursued by a demonic and shadowy group of monkeys. The player must guide him out of the temple to escape from the monkeys.

The player must jump, slide and turn at the right moments to avoid dangers on the way. Falling down a pit or crashing into an obstacle usually causes death. The demonic monkeys can be outran easily, but tripping on a root, or failing to turn while running down a stony walkway, causes the hero to stumble, allowing the monkeys to catch up with him - at that point another stumble means death.

The game only ends when the player dies. While running the player can collect coins, which award additional points and can be used to buy items (both power-ups that randomly appear during play, and one-use items that the player can use at any time after buying) and unlock new characters from the in-game store. The game also has a number of "objectives" (achievements) which the player can try to attain, such as reaching a specific minimum score during a run.
