Temple Run 2, Imangi Studios' sequel to its endless runner classic of the same name, is a great example of what to do with a second entry into an arcade series.

Can I never get these monkeys off my back?

In Temple Run 2, you must again try to escape with the cursed idol that you stole from the temple, while still being chased by the Evil Demon Monkeys. While you'll still be running (of course), jumping, sliding and turning, you'll also have to navigate cliffs, zip lines, mines and forests.

The game has power-ups and unlockable content that can be bought with coins earned in the game, or you can purchase currency with microtransactions. Temple Run 2 does not really force purchases, but taking the easy way out by buying a pack of coins is tempting.

Input detection issues

Controls in Temple Run 2 are the same as the original. You tilt to move horizontally and collect coins, swipe up to jump, and swipe down to slide. To change directions left or right, you swipe in that direction. If you played the original, jumping into Temple Run 2 is easy.

There are some input detection issues with Temple Run 2 though. Occasionally when swiping to jump or slide, the game did not register and I crashed into a tree or wall. Other times, it would register a sideswipe incorrectly and I would lose. This can get frustrating especially when you have progressed far into a level.

Bigger and better

While the original Temple Run's visuals were a little stagnant, Temple Run 2 adds a lot of higher quality graphics and effects. The stages look and feel bigger, plus there's more variety in the levels as you progress.

Never stop running

If you enjoyed Temple Run, Temple Run 2 is going to eat all your free time.
