Your character stole an idol from a temple. Because of this, the monsters are now running after him. The game is set to auto run so all you have to do is avoid the obstacles, while collecting coins and power ups along the way. Bumping on obstacles like walls would slow you down. Though this would not kill you, this would risk you from being caught by the enemies. The game will end once you are caught and killed. Look ahead to have a better view on what’s about to come so you can decide what to do next. Be careful when turning as you may be facing a cliff without you realizing it. Falling off the cliff will also put the game to an end.
This is one of the online games that are somewhat similar to Temple Run. To start playing, select a character by clicking on it.
