    Infinite-runners might be a dime a dozen on mobile devices these days, but "Temple Run" provides enough fun and unique of an experience to be worth your time.

The reason it stands out is because of its complexity. Yeah you're still dodging obstacles and completing objectives, but things like buying upgrades and power-ups help give it depth. Also adding to the depth is the shear number of things you will do in order to avoid obstacles. You'll tilt and swipe your mobile device in order dodge, jump, turn, and slide your way to new high scores. The game is at its best when you have to do all of these things in a row at high speeds. The game also looks fantastic, but the sound is forgettable. Overall it might just be another infinite-runner, but thanks to its uniqueness it's still a lot of fun to play. Expand

    Temple Run is probably the most addictive App Store game you can buy. Even though it is a simple idea, there is a great amount of strategic work involved.Buy it!

    Best free Game out there. It is so much fun and very challenging. There are tons of unlocks and perks to help boost your character. I play this game everyday. It's not a game you can play for hours, it's one you will play for a long period of time, but only like 10 minutes here and there.

    Tired of Angry Birds or Fruit Ninja ? Then Temple Run is a definitive creative game that needs to be played. Tight gameplay, nice challenges, neat graphics which I preferred more a 2D look rather than a dusty, bland look, but Temple Run is a important game no matter what type of gamer you're.

    A great game of running jumping and swiping which becomes addictive, yet I have found doesn't dry out over time, and always feels fresh to play. You won't find a much better game for free.

    This is an extremely fun and addicting game. However, I'm concerned about the designs on this game. They're not very interesting and realistic, however the ones on its sequel are and that's why I liked it better. Grade: B.

    You do know Running-Games. It's as simple as hell : a character continually running forward, and your reflexes only to prevent him from falling into traps, holes, or any hasard coming his way. Temple Run is one of them, with an Indiana Jones take. It's a good and thrilling one, and it's still free with in-app purchases, so go get it!

    The "endless running" genre consists of many excellent titles, with the likes of Tiny Wings, DoodleJump and Grim Joggers receiving high acclaim. Temple Run goes above and beyond, offering gamers a superb, addictive experience throughout.

    All told, if this game isn't on your phone, you're doing yourself a huge disservice.
