What is BlueStacks App Player?
BlueStacks App Player is an application from a software company based in Silicon Valley called BlueStacks. It allows users to run Android applications like games on any computer like they were made to run on them. It works as an emulator for Android apps like Temple Run. This app player is available for free so you don’t have to spend a single dollar for its download. Go to BlueStacks’ official website to download the program. The file size is 125Mb. It should take a few moments depending on the speed of your connection. Once done with the download, install it on your computer to start running Temple Run, as well as other Android games.
How to Install Temple Run on Computer with BlueStacks
Launch BlueStacks App Player after the installation. When you first open the app, it will ask you if you have an Android device. If you do, enter the information asked like your e-mail address and phone number. You will be sent a pin number that you can use to sync apps from your Android device to the BlueStacks App Player installed in your computer. However, in order to perform syncing, you need to have another application from BlueStacks installed on your Android device. This is called BlueStacks Cloud Connect, which is also available without a cost. An e-mail will be sent to you containing the instructions on how to sync your apps. If you have Temple Run on your Android, then you can easily play it on your computer by syncing.

Click on the game to download and it will automatically install on your computer. Launch the game from the dock of the player. If you already downloaded a PC version of the game on your computer, extract its zipped file. Run the extracted file of Temple Run with the .zip extension and open BlueStacks to start playing.
How to Play Temple Run
Now that you have the emulator and the game installed, it is time to finally have fun playing. It is the same as playing it on mobile devices. The only difference is that instead of swiping on different directions, you will use the arrow keys on your keyboard to make your hero move. Temple Run is an endless running game. The game will eventually end when the character falls from the cliff or it was killed by the enemies. The goal is to reach as far as you can on the game while collecting as many coins as this will add to your total score. It is set to auto run so you do not need to do anything to make your hero run. Your job is to control it to avoid obstacles and make it turn on the right directions. Turn left or right using the left and right arrow keys. Jump or slide by using the up and down arrow keys. Aside from coins, there are also power-ups that you can get along the way, which will help you get a higher score including megacoin, coin magnet, invisibility and value coins. Utilities can also be purchased like wings, boost and mega boost. Upgrades can be made to help get more coins, as well as make the effect of the power-ups last longer.
Temple Run Tips
Here are some helpful tips that will help you achieve a high score in the game. Keep practicing as it will get easier once you are already familiar with the controls.

- Focus on upgrading coin magnet and double value coins from the start of the game to help you earn quickly.
- Complete objectives in the game as this will increase your score multiplier.
