You can see Temple Run in action in the video below. This video demo is for the iPhone version, but you get a good idea of what to expect in this fast paced game.

To control your character, you swipe up, down, left or right, so there are no buttons to miss and screw up your escape. This is one of the reasons that Temple Run works so well. It’s not just a good idea for a game, it’s executed well.

Temple Run is free to play, but there are in app purchases if you can’t wait to earn the in-game currency to upgrade your character. According to many reviews of the iPhone version, you can play just fine without spending any real cash, so don’t worry about getting hit up for a dollar here and there just to advance.

  1. You are a liar. It is not in google play and I cannot get it so I am having to save up for an ipod touch. I am sad about this with my samsung galaxy ace.

  2. Got to laugh at these people with low powered Droids expecting a game like Temple Run to work on it and then giving the developer a hard time. HTC Wildfire? C’moan. its got a 500mhz CPU and a screen rez of 240 x 320 pixels. Wake up!!
