Temple Run is a fairly straightforward game, that being said, it may take a while to get master it. The purpose of temple run is to run as far as possible, without dropping into an ever-slope or fall of water into the fire, wood, or a gap.
There are no real bad guys on Temple Square, with the exception of the evil masked monkey Run [from Agrinthorn] that you will hunt, if you make a mistake – and eat you if you slip back. These guys wear after a while – but you continue to hunt.
The real headache is all barrages of blockades, patched the game progresses.
There are four important ones:
Firewalls – you have to either jump or glide over.
Wood-slips – If you hit them, you stumble, but you will not die. But if you travel back and the monkeys are behind you, they eat you.
Wooden walls – Got to slide below them, smacking off of them will lead to death.
The Endless Water – Generally, you need a 90 degrees each time you come to a turning point. You can do this by flicking on the screen. Otherwise will result in a dip in the water.
In Temple Run they have a power up items to help you along the way, they can be pick up in some nice little parcels. You can also collect coins/gold, which may help you in unlocking new adventurous character, and upgrade for increases health regeneration and better packages.
Here are the 4 power ups in Temple Run:
Gold Coins – If you pick this power up, you will get money.
Magnet – While using the Magnet power up, all of the coins that you see will fly toward you. If you have upgraded the magnet, the coins are more valuable to.
Invisibility – you can walk through fire, wood and it would do nothing to you. But you must resist going into the water =).
Speed / Invisibility – Giving you a boost in speed, then a little invisibility.
How to Get a Highscore!
Here are a few tips I’ve learned along the way that I use consistently use in order to achieve the best score.
Tips #1 Score> Coins – If you are starting to get a good score try to forget the coins. Focus on only aiming a higher score. The coins will come if you keep on going. So basically, you do not push your runner to the side of the game, try keeping your runner in the middle.
Tips #2 Slide-hop Slide – Basically, you’ll sometimes slip through a barrier, then there is a gap immediately after. Fear not! You can hop right after you and take your character in moving from his stubborn position to jump.
Tips #3 Danger, High Speeds – After you’ve used the speed upgrade you will have a few seconds with invisibility and normal speed. During this time, the game may automatically move you around the board, to fit their needs. If you’re too hectic and move your player when he is still in invisibility, the game may glitch and you will be sent into the water. It’s better if you just wait until invisibility is completely eradicated, then you start playing.
Tips #4 Double Jump – In temple run you can find that if you run into a difficult task of double jumping in between two gaps. Normally, you’re allowed one second to flick twice, or you fall into the water. Diligence is what you need, to be able to quickly understand you must jump twice.
Tips #5 Speeds – You can buy high speed for an amount of coins, I think it’s 2500 for the small-speed and 10000 for the large. They’re pointless and once you’ve finished you’re running faster than you would be at regular pace, so technically, you’ll be gaining more speed than you usually would.
Tips #6 Coin Collecting Early- At the start of the first 3000 meters, it’s alot easier to collect the coins and this will get you at least 300 coins in each round. I would try to get every coin, before it gets too hard. Collecting any coins will also add bonus total score for your highscore.
After awhile on getting your highscore, you would have a serious cramp in my hand/wrist. LOL
