It seems that Temple Run doesn’t need any more introductions, this game itself is one of the endless runner game legends and also one of inspiration for the game now. If you are a fan of Endless Runner, without thinking, Temple Run 2 is a game that is required to have. Well, for those of you who are already bored with the rise of Endless Runner genre games. So I’m here to explain why this game is required to be owned.
The storyline at Temple Run 2 is similar to Temple Run 1 (I wrote 1 for the previous version), where you have to run as far as the monkey chase. If TR 1, there are 3 monkeys chasing you, then on TR 2 there is only 1 monkey but it is jumbo. If on Temple Run 1 you will only run, then this time you will have a much more varied gameplay starting from gliding using flying fox or driving a vehicle in a mine full of dead ends.
The environment in Temple Run 2 is also much more varied both in terms of the background and the shape of the environment itself. You will run on a very high path located in the clouds, through the forest, a wooden bridge, and also through the caves. The use of this diverse composition of the environment makes the gameplay more interesting and not boring.
Regarding the controls, there is no change in Temple Run 2’s gameplay, you swipe up to jump, swipe down to slide, swipe right, swipe left, tilt to pick up coins, double tap to activate special power. The first time the game starts you will play as a Dangerous Guy with special abilities in the form of Shield, which serves to protect you if you hit wood, get hit by fire, etc.
Along with your increasing coins you can also unlock other characters with different default capabilities, and if you don’t want to use default skills then you can replace them with other abilities that are already open. Temple Run 2 has 4 unique characters and 9 skills that you can upgrade by paying a number of coins. Special special abilities carried by characters can only be upgraded using a gem.
If you are game over in Temple Run 2 then you can use the Save Me feature by paying 1 gem at the first death, 2 gems for the second, 4 gems for the third, etc.) This gem can be obtained through IAP or in the game, but of course Don’t expect this Gem to appear like a coin that you can easily get. In one play if you are lucky maybe you can get up to 3-5 gems. Unfortunately, you will receive this gem after you are game over and can be used for the next game, so even if you get 3 gems while playing, and you accidentally die, you cannot Save Me with the gem you just collected.
For Temple Run 2, you also need to complete the existing objectives to increase the level and multiplier score, unfortunately unlike the first series, the objective here is so permanent that if you cannot complete an objective (such as getting a score of 200,000) then you will have a little difficulty level up.
Previously, Imangi Studio had also worked with Disney to work on Temple Run: Brave. So that overall there are 3 different variations of Temple Run. And if I have to choose, then surely I choose Temple Run 2 with its free price, smoother graphics, diverse powerups. There’s no reason for you not downloading this Editor’s Choice app right now.
