Temple Run 2 Gameplay and Controls

After you start the game, you will have to complete a short tutorial. You will see your character running out of the temple. There will be a great monster chasing him. Your mission is to run for as long as you can. While running, you will have to avoid different obstacles, for example, lava rivers, fallen trees, etc. The game will teach you all the controls. You can avoid objects by jumping or sliding. For that, swipe up or down with your finger (depends on the move you want to perform). You can also swipe left and right in order to make a turn. If you do that when there is no turn ahead, you will crash and the beast that is chasing you will be closer. It should be also mentioned that you can tilt your device in order to make your character run on the left or right side of the road.

Purchases and Boosters

While playing, you will be able to collect coins. If you collect the required number of coins, you can see the bar at the top left corner becomes full. After that, perform the double tap, and your character will run faster and avoid obstacles automatically, but only for a few seconds. 

If you go to the “Store”, you will be able to upgrade your abilities. You can improve shield duration, double coins, coin magnet duration, boost distance, etc. You can also select the character in the menu. However, some of the characters are locked. To unlock them, you have to spend near 5000 coins. 
You can also select power-ups by tapping the related button. If you tap on the “Outfit” button, you will be able to see the alternative outfit for the character you selected. The game also provides users with different challenges and objectives. For example, you have to run 1000 meters, collect 250 coins, etc. The game will reward you and give you a new level.
