A mobile game which has reached over 170 million download isn't just a game, it's a phenomenon. A sequel of such successful game has been globally awaited as a great event. That day has come. Temple Run 2 is hitting our touchscreens keeping the essence of its successful formula and adding some interesting new stuff.
Thus, gameplay is still the same: a 3D endless running game in which you have get as far as possible avoiding obstacles or gaps by jumping (swipe up) or sliding (swipe down). Actually, part of the success of Temple Run is due its mobile-native controls: use touchscreen gestures to jump and slide and tilt controls to move sideways and collect coins. Coins collected are kept in your bankroll and you can use them to purchase power-ups and items that will help you to get even further.
What about the new stuff? First off, Temple Run 2 has been graphically enhanced. 3D textures and outline are now neater. Actually, there's a smoother feeling due to both enhanced graphics and more natural environments: instead of those typical rigid gridded paths, in Temple Run 2 there are more curves, slopes and blind hills. A needed touch of reality.
In addition, the stage seems to be a floating temple where, besides gaps, obstacles and sudden changes of direction, you'll have to handle mine carts, zip lines and a bunch of new power-ups. In fact, one of the new features I liked most is its renewed upgrading menu, where you can see your level-up bar, achievements left and coins/gems in your bankroll. Use the latter to unlock new skills and characters: now there are up to new four characters to choose among.
In a few words, this is one of the best games you can currently download. Why is it getting a 4-star rating then? The core of the game hasn't been touched: the improvements introduced could have been perfectly added on an update of Temple Run. In my opinion, all this new stuff isn't enough for a sequel.
