'Temple Run 2'
Welcome to 'Temple Run 2,' released a little more than a year after the original blockbuster game.
Temple Run 2 features the same swipe controls as the original, making the gameplay easy for anyone to pick up.
This new game is a huge graphical improvement over the original Temple Run. The world is set on a floating temple, and the game takes place just before sunset; the clouds look like sherbet.
The game has far more obstacles than before, so you'll be jumping and ducking a variety of natural and dangerous formations.
Want to feel like Tarzan? Temple Run 2 loves sending you down zip lines and over vines.
You'll also have to tilt the phone to stay on these rickety minecart tracks, another new feature.
Instead of running from a horde of angry monkeys, your new monkey foe is huge, and scary. Don't let him catch you!
Need More Gems
After each death, Temple Run 2 offers you the option to revive and not lose your spot in your run. You can do this if you've snagged a gem during your runs, but you can also purchase them from the store.
The game's store has a multitude of coin purchase options to get new characters and power-ups earlier, as well as gems to revive your character.
You can level up your character's abilities with the coins you collect.
Just like Temple Run, you level up your character by completing objectives in-game.
Clever Death Page
You'll also get different messages at the end of your run, depending on how you died.
Each Temple Run 2 character includes his or her own special power than can be activated during runs.
