    mobmarkymark's Temple Run (iPd)

    [October 2, 2012 12:00:19 AM]
    Temple Run is a free game that can be played on the iOS or Android platforms. It immediately became an extremely popular game and rose to the top of the application store charts. The theme of the game is basically that the player is an explorer who steals an idol from an ancient temple. The objective of the game is to gain as many points as possible by collecting coins and covering as much distance as possible. The mechanics of the game are fairly simple. The player swipes the touchscreen in order to control what the character does. The player can swipe right to turn right, left to turn left, up to jump, and down to slide. He or she can also tilt the device to the right or left in order to run on the right or left side of the jungle paths. It should also be noted that the player does not control the running of the character; the character is automatically running and gaining speed the entire duration of the game. The art in the game is just right for the type of game that Temple Run is. There aren't any fancy graphics or vast landscapes. In fact, most of the scenery in the game is extremely repetitive. However, the game is not made fun by a big world with many different environments and characteristics. It is the mechanics and the quick-reactions required in order to succeed at the game that makes it fun and addicting to play. There isn't much of a narrative aspect to the game. The player knows that they have just stolen an idol in a temple in the jungle, but thatís about it. Other than the evil monkeys chasing the player and the fact that the player is escaping a temple, there isn't much context to the situation. However, a game as addicting and entertaining as Temple Run does not require an engrossing story in order to keep the playerís interest.
