Review : Temple Run: Oz by Disney
Official Site: Disney
Disney has started to ramp up the promotion of “Oz the Great and Powerful”, their new movie being released this week. They have partnered with Imangi Studios to make an Oz rendition of Temple Run.
If you have played Temple Run, you will find this game to (obviously) feel very familiar. The game play is the same, but the challenges have changed. You have to jump over obstacles that pop-up in your path at the last moment. You can also jump on to a rope that takes you up in a hot-air balloon. When you are in the balloon, you can collect coins while avoiding the green crystals.
Overall, I think it is a great addition to the Temple Run series of games. The graphics are great, although my iPhone 4 does struggle sometimes with all of it. I am sure the iPhone 4 is on the bottom of their list of targeted phones, so this is understandable. I think they did an impressive job of adding the movie elements into the game play. Even if you haven’t played the Temple Run games in the past, this is worth the $0.99 to give the game a try!
