    Amazing Game!!! ❤️👍🏻😇😃

    When my friend realized that I still play "Subway Surfers" at the age 13, she decided to "tease" me about it. I was upset but I really like games like that so I decided to start looking for other games like that for "older kids". I found a bunch of games including this one. I tried them all and they didn't work very well, there were so many ads on them and too many In app purchases, so eventually I decided to try out this game, I said to myself "this is amazing!!" I love how you can not only decide what path you take, but also have more obstacles, like trees, fire, etc. I also like how there are no ads (for me at least). Whenever my mom tells me to go to my room or something because I'm too crazy from my ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) I pull out my iPad and play this for a half hour, it's really fun and does't have any annoying glitches or ads, it's easy to play, and it's just overall an amazing game! I hope you make more games like this!!!!! ❤️😇🙃😃😛😝😋🙂😊😀😄

    A great game, but some flaws

    I’d like to start off by saying I really love the game. The concept is fairly original, and it’s simple and fun to play. But there are two things I don’t like. For starters, the fact that you have to tilt your device to get the coins. It seems unnecessary and I feel it would just be easier to swipe left and right. The other thing I dislike is how it gets faster and faster as time goes on. It gets quite hard to use and I feel myself getting stressed. Other than that though, I absolutely love the game. One of my favorite things it that you can customize your avatar. I also really enjoy the landscape design, it seems random but it’s really beautiful and detailed and and it brings the perfect idea of a jungle. One other note I have, however, is that the obstacles become repetitive and boring after time goes on, so maybe add different obstacles each time you unlock an achievement. Overall though, I love the concept and the game is just so much fun to play. Thank you to the developers for making it!

    Playing Temple Run is fun and bad

    Hi there, I played your game a long time ago. And then recently I decided to play Temple Run. I love playing Temple run. I have been playing with the game a lot. It’s super fun and interesting to play. But, the one thing that does annoy me is that, when I bump into to something and then I die it asks if I want to run again to watch an add. However, whenever I press the red ex button there still is an add even though I said no. And there is just way to many adds for no reason. And I don’t mind tilting your device but it would be easier just using your fingers and thumb to go left or right to get the coins. Please fix all of that. But other than that, I still love playing this game and it’s very fun & enjoyable! Thank you! Hope you have had a great morning, afternoon, evening, or night!

    temple run is pretty cool

    I like this game. There are very few minor things that could be fixed but other than those things, (I will list them here) it is a good game 1: It is glitchy. I guess this just comes with the fact it is old though. 2: The obstacles get a little boring after a while. They keep reapeating so I would suggest maybe updating as you get farther into the game. 3: The timing on the jumps for coins and over obstacles is impossible sometimes! It is just... terrible sometimes... 4: So when I get acheivments it will tell me after I got it. But when I go to objectives, it says I still havent gotten that acheivment so fix that please. 5: A lot of the times when there is a fork in the road, it doesnt detect it when I swipe left or right and it thinks i swiped up. 6: This is the thing that makes me the most mad. 😡 After I die it gives me the option of whether or not to watch an ad to continue. EVEN IF I CHOOSE no IT SHOWS ME AN AD!!! It is so annoying! FIX THIS please!!! Overall it is a fun game to play in your freetime. I remebered playing it when I was little and now it is something if I am bored I can just click on and have fun. Thank you for reading and considering my review!🙂

    This game is fun and the concept is original. I like that you can upgrade your upgrades and change your character/avatar, but there is one major downside to the game as well. First off all, After you die in the game, you are offered 2 options; 1. Quit/Don’t revive, or 2. Watch an Ad to revive/Keep running. Even when I press the first option, an Ad is played. I don’t know why there is even an option when this happens 95% of the time that I press the button. It is aggravating that I am spending more time watching ads than playing the game. But even though that is a major issue, I do think the game is fun and exiting. It’s very similar to some other endless run games like Subway Surfers, but I do also appreciate how simple Temple Run is. Thank You for reading my review! 🖤

    WHY SO MANY ADS?!?!?!

    Ok so I haven’t played this game in a long time and I’m playing it now and there are a couple of bugs. 1. Whenever I start I get chased by the crazy monkeys like always. But on that first turn you take to get away from the monkeys I slide the person on my screen and he doesn’t turn! 2. SO MANY ADS!!! There are so many ads for everything! It’s ridiculous! When I die a little scroll pops up saying I can revive myself. I usually don’t revive myself because I know there will be an ad for that. There’s another scroll under the first scroll that says restart or something like that. And I figure that if I press the second scroll then won’t be any ads. NOPE!!! There’s still an ad! Please lower the ad range a lot because it’s getting really annoying! Sorry I said so much! Peace! ✌️

    Lots of fun, but too many ads

    Temple Run was one of the first apps I got on my phone several years ago and I loved it. Stopped playing it for a while so after much deliberation I deleted it. Re-downloaded it today because I needed a fun game on my phone. Very happy with it, aside from ads popping up every single time you die. Yes, if you would like to continue the run you're on, watching an ad is appropriate to get that ability. However, if you press the button to decline the offer, you shouldn't have to watch an ad anyway to do anything else in the app. It's very annoying, especially if you're listening to music on your phone while playing- then every time an ad pops up the music stops and you have to resume it when the ad ends.

    Love making the Demon Monkeys fall into the water

    In this game your character runs frantically from a gang of hideous demon monkeys. By simple swipes you must direct your hero over a series of random obstacles and a maze of perilous pathways fraught with dangers, where one small slip sends our intrepid explorer plunging to his death or stumbling into the jaws of the monkey horde. I enjoyed this game immensely; however it becomes an easy task to reach the end of the maze once you discover how to trick the monkeys into falling into the water. After that, you can take your time getting to the maze’s end without fear of your hero being chased. I still love watching the money’s fall into the water. The developers did an excellent job with the graphics of the monkeys smacking into the water like a parade of possessed lemmings.

    Not a good as it once was

    I used to play this game several years ago when it first came out. Although simple, it was addictive and fun. I recently redownloaded it, but I’m sad there have been some not so great changes made. 1. The ads. Oh goodness, the ads. I can appreciate the need to make money with ad revenue, but this game has literally been taken over. The irony of pushing “no” when it asks if you want to watch an ad to continue playing and then getting to watch an ad anyway is not lost on me. 🙄 2. It no longer tells you your distance. I only know how far I’ve gone after I’ve lost? 3. I played yesterday and then logged on today to find that it forgot all my data. All the powerups and achievements from yesterday’s games were gone and I had to start all over. The premise of this game is great, and it’s still fun, but the changes have most definitely left it wanting.

    If you want to watch ads all day and hardly play the game, this is for you.

    I felt compelled to review this, as it was such a fun game when I was a kid, I could play it for hours. I downloaded it again recently and first of all, the game is overwhelming with ads. If you die, you’re forced to watch an ad even if you decline to watch an ad to continue. Second of all, the ads sometimes have music that blares through the speakers and I have my phone on silent always. I don’t need to be bombarded by loud, obnoxious game ads that look boring anyway. So going out of the app and refreshing it clears the loud ad out of the way and you can start over in the game. However, after doing this, the game will glitch and freeze, and immediately if you’re at an edge, your character runs off the edge and dies because you don’t have time to swipe to make him turn. Then once again, you get the “watch ad to continue?” And you’ll be watching an advertisement even if you decline. Feels like it’s fixed just to make you watch boring game ads. Shame.

    gone downhill

    this game used to be super fun, I played it back when I got my first ipod in 6th grade. I got pretty good but ultimately stopped playing for a few years. I’m a senior in high school now and I decided to play again for nostalgia’s sake but I didn’t expect all the ads! when you die, there’s a popup that asks if you want to continue by watching an ad. if you say no, it still plays the ad! there doesn’t seem to be a way to buy your way out of the ads, not that I would if I could. they’re also the worst kind of ad on a mobile game: the kind that bait you to interact with it and after a few taps redirects you to the app store. these are 30 second ads that get really boring. I don’t want to play kim kardashian hollywood and never will. I also no longer want to play temple run. the game itself is still the OG of this kind of game, but it’s gone way down in quality due to the ads.

    not even a minute into the game....

    I remember playing this game all the time as a kid and when i saw it in the app store again, I decided to give it a go again. It downloaded in less than a minute and I entered the app, like any normal game. Not even a full minute into the game, I was going through the tutorial and my player kept on disappearing into thin air and it just restarted the tutorial again. I don’t remember this ever happening when I used to play this as a kid. I still really wanted to actually play the game so i restarted the app and still, it happens once again. I then restarted my PHONE, because maybe it was my devices problem. I load the app again and still, my player disappears about 20 seconds into the game MULTIPLE TIMES. I can’t even make it through the tutorial without it crashing!!!! I’m really disappointed because like I said, this game was so much fun to play as a kid and for it not even to work is just sad. Playing this years ago I would give it a 5 star review but playing this in the present is just a disappointing 1 star review.

    This game is terrible no hate..

    So when I was a kid I used to love this game, but as I got older it’s kinda bad like, lemme explain. 1st one day it forgot all my data like my power ups disappeared all my progress just GONE!!! 2nd, ok this started like just a year ago. It was just a normal day and I load on to the game like a normal person then as I started playing ads were popping up I had no problem with it, but when I died they game asked me a question it said “ do you wanna watch a ad to get some coins” and I clicked no because I already had lots of coins, and it still made me watch the ad it kinda made me mad but I just kept on playing the game until it started doing it again. It made me mad so I got of the game. 3rd, Another day, I started playing the game and it started lagging I checked my WiFi and it was just fine so I just said “ oh it’s probably just the game” until it started happening again, and again, and again it made me mad so I just got off. I will have to give this game 1 star…

    Removing ads doesn’t remove ads

    I’ve not played the game in a few years and decided to try it out again. This time my experience has not been so great. There’s an ad for when you die and if you want to keep going you have to watch it, if you don’t you still get hit with an ad. If you want to double your coins there’s an ad for that. There’s an ad for everything. So I decided I would pay the $1.99 to get rid of ads. Well that didn’t work either. You still have to watch an ad to keep going if you die. The only thing I can tell I got for my $1.99 purchase was I no longer have to watch an ad when I die and go back to the menu instead of watching an ad to keep going. The whole point of making the purchase was so I didn’t have to watch an ad when I die to keep going. Very disappointed and fell like I just completely wasted $1.99. Dont remove the ads unless you want to waste your money and still be forced to watch ads.
