Despite the fact that almost nothing happens but running, turning, jumping and sliding, Temple Run is one of the most popular games on mobile. In fact, in just a month on the platform the Android version of the game saw 10 million downloads. But there’s gotta be more to life than jumping over overgrown tree roots and sliding under bridges, which is why a new version of the game has been brought to life within the App Store and Google Play.
It’s a collaborative project between Imangi Studios, makers of the original Temple Run, and Disney/Pixar, which has a big new movie coming out soon titled Brave.
The game is pretty much the same in terms of features, save for a new feature called Archery which will net you points should you hit the target. Graphics have also been much improved to offer a more three-dimensional experience.
The Brave new world also happens to be much greener than in the original, gold and brown Temple Run, with our fearless runner being replaced by the little girl from the movie, complete with blue dress.
It was only a year or so ago that Rovio teamed up with Twentieth Century Fox and Blue Skies Studio to build an Angry Birds Rio version of their ever-popular game to coincide with the launch of Rio, the movie. That turned out to be quite the success, as Angry Birds Rio saw 10 million downloads in its first ten days on the market.
Perhaps the same growth spurt will occur with Temple Run: Brave. In the meantime, check out the Temple Run: Brave trailer:
