Temple Run 2 Gameplay and Graphics

The most noticeable upgrade in Temple Run 2 is the vastly improved graphics. Vibrant colours and much more detailed environments add to the appeal of the lost city in the sky setting. 

Built using the Unity development engine, the Temple Run 2 landscape has been improved throughout, with curved roads and hills replacing the more angular terrain of the original game. Waterfalls and other scenic additions also appear periodically, adding a more realistic feel to the often-monotonous setting of the original.

The game world has also been upgraded to include new zipwire and mine cart sections. Players will periodically have to slide down rope ziplines or hop into minecarts and navigate a web of mining tracks deep within the caves. 

Although some users have found that the new upgraded graphics have come at a performance cost, with any incoming texts, emails or notifications causing the game to lag, Imangi has been quick to issue a patch. That said, such delays have cost the lives of many a plucky adventurer in our experience. 

Temple Run 2 benefits from retaining the original game’s control mechanics. Players must utilise a tried and tested swipe control system. Swiping left and right to make turns, users have to swipe up and down to avoid various hazards along the route, including fire-breathing statues and precariously placed rocky outcrops. Tilting the device controls the mine carts as well as letting users pick up power-ups and the coins and gems that make up the currency for Temple Run 2.
