Here’s a treat for Indiana Jones fans. It’s called Temple Run, it’s free on the iOS App Store, and it gives you the chance to relive your Indy treasure-hunting dreams.
Just like the opening sequence in Raiders of the Lost Ark, Temple Run is about running for your life. You’re in charge of a strangely Indy-like hero who’s just emerged from a dank cave clutching a golden idol and chased by killer zombie monkeys (or something).
The goal is survival, for as long as possible. You’ll have to master a series of simple moves to turn corners, leap obstacles, and pick up coins as you run. Coins means upgrades, and upgrades means more fun to be had.
There’s not much to it, but then there doesn’t need to be. You’ve raided a temple, now you run. Simple. Even for a dollar or so I’d say this game was good value, but when you don’t have to even pay a penny for it, I’d say it’s a must-have.
Now, you throw me the idol, and I’ll throw you the whip. And mind those booby traps on your way out.
