Step 3. Complete the training

The race starts from the very beginning of the game. Demonic monkeys are chasing you, so it's best not to hesitate! The object of the game is to escape from demonic monkeys by overcoming obstacles in your path. There will be a short tutorial at the start of the race, so don't worry.

  • You will be taught how to jump over obstacles. To do this, you need to swipe up.
  • To turn left or right, just slide your finger across the screen in the desired direction.
  • To slide, swipe down. This is required to pass low places.
  • You can also tilt the device itself so that the runner moves to the sides or in the center of the path.

When you see the coins, tilt your phone in the right direction. Coins are very important for improving bonus items, skills, and other factors that improve your running skills. They can also be used to get additional content!

Step 5. Collect bonus items

During the run, bonus items will be encountered on the way. Always try to collect them, as they give you certain skills to run further. The action of bonus items is limited in time, so hurry up to use them while they are active.

Step 7. Over and over again

Since the main task of the game is to run forward, we can say that it is endless. Just run forward and pretty soon you will fall into an abyss or crash into a tree trunk. In other words, you have lost. The game completion screen offers several options to choose from.

  • You can publish your statistics on the Internet via Tweeter or Facebook.
  • You can go to the upgrades page and use the collected resources to improve your running skills.
  • You can change the settings through the menu.
  • You can also just get up and continue playing.

Step 1. Take a ride in the cart

Temple Run 2 has dungeons that you can run or even drive through. In order not to run, you can ride in a cart and explore the mine workings! In this part, the controls are slightly changed.

  • Moving your finger downward makes the character duck rather than slide.
  • The tilt of the device changes the track of the cart.
  • Jumping in dungeons is not possible.

Step 1. Explore the bonus items

Like the first Temple Run game, the second installment also includes bonus items to help you progress further in the game. All of them can be improved to enhance their effect or duration.

  • Shield The shield is a default bonus item that protects you from hazards like fire, spinning sharp wheels, stone blocks, and wooden beams.
  • Coin Magnet The magnet becomes available at level 5. It attracts coins to you without having to move in their direction.
  • Boost Acceleration helps you run with wind speed! With it, you can go through any obstacles, including cliffs. The downside is that running faster will make it harder for you to collect coins.
