'Temple Run: Oz' Movie Tie-In Goes Live on App Store




Temple Run: Oz has hit the App Store, the second movie tie-in for Imangi after Temple Run: Brave last year. Both movies are Disney flicks, with the latest version set in the land of Oz. Oz the Great and Powerful takes place before the famous 'Wizard of Oz', setting up the backstory for how the Wizard made his way to the land.

Gameplay is similar to other Temple Run titles -- the latest of which has been downloaded more than fifty million times -- an endless runner with a few special power ups added in. Our sister-site Touch Arcade gave this description of the changes from the other versions of TR:
Quote:
Temple Run: Oz is built on the same engine as Temple Run 2, so the visuals are top notch and there's a much more natural and flowing feel to the landscape in its levels. Like Temple Run: Brave and its arrow shooting mechanic, Temple Run: Oz also looks to add its own personal touch with a hot-air balloon flying segment, which is really just a tilt-based coin collect-a-thon but breaks up the action and has a cool epic feel. There are also dynamic hazards you need to be careful of, like a crumbling statue that will block your path or an enemy that swoops in from the sky that you'll need to quickly duck under.
Temple Run: Oz is a universal app available for $0.99. [Direct Link]

They gotta keep updating, otherwise each version gets stale after a while =/

Thought this was the Australian version! You think you're heading in the right direction but end up in the middle of nowhere and need to be rescued by the police.

That video is painful to watch. It's like they don't know about the Oz books, and they don't know how to play Temple Run 2.

This new game is pretty awesome. I was surprised, but it is.

couldn't resist

Been playing Temple Run 2 steady for the past 2 weeks. For 99 cents, I couldn't resist Oz. Nice update to the game. I think worth the 99 cents.

I hate these Temple Run games. Visually they are great but just couldn't get on with the game play.

My six year old is a junkie for the Temple Run Brave game. I still don't understand the appeal, but I'm sure she'll love this one as well.

I really hope Temple Run doesn't turn out to be like the now-extremely-annoying Angry Birds franchise. They have potential, but they're overdoing it imo.

AppStore should have a special section just for fleeing from unrelenting and inevitable doom games.

They're truly games that put the "fun" in "futility".

Funtility.
