Long Distance Runners

After buying that Swipe 3D Tablet, gaming has come back to me. It is not about any other game though, as they have all been running games, except for My Emma about which I shall write later. It all started with Temple Run 2 which was already installed in the tablet and then I needed a few more games. So I installed more of the similar games and ended up having so many games within never-ending running worlds. All seemed so similar, but I really wanted to play them all as our heroes keep running and running, and here is the list of my endless running games 😀 All the images used in this blog post are from Google Apps Store.

1. Temple Run: As the beginner game of them all and the most played Android game which I have seen on the phones of almost all my friends, challenged only by Angry Birds, this one makes us feel that everything else are just random imitations, especially with the second part of the game released. Everything seemed perfect with this game, and just after installing it, I had played it so many times. Now I have both parts of the game, and it seems to me that no other game can have the perfection of this one. Sooner or later, the protagonist in the game will realize that he can’t get away after stealing artifacts from monkeys 😀

2. Spirit Run: This is the closest neighbour to the one above. The setting remains a temple, but just that it is more of an Aztec pyramid temple instead of the original. There are no adventurers here though, and instead there is the native spirit running around to save nature – this person can transform into a wolf and go invincible instead of the original shield option of Temple Run. There are also other unlockable characters who turn into other creatures. Its advantage is that the graphics happen to the best of them all. A lot of options need internet though including the scores.

3. Zombie Run: The one real bad thing here is that there is no exit button. But otherwise, this is a fine piece of running game which has a zombie with a Santa Hat running from the evil humans who have started a bar on top his swampish resting place. He keeps running away from the dangerous alive creatures, collecting magic potions and fishes. The game has a nice environment, lots of details and high collection of statistics. This one scores with a zombie and does well.

4. Subway Surfer: Temple Run changed and made suitable to the modern age and further interesting for the new age kids, this one includes a kid who runs away from the police and the cop dog after doing something really stupid with a graffiti in the subway. There are trains which keep coming, and block which will end his run, and also being caught by the police who does the job of the monkeys in Temple Run and a monster in Spirit Run. There are some nice, stylish areas in the game, but the need for the internet for daily challenge and some extra advertisements ruin the time. And the exit button is not found yet.

5. Zombie Chasing: They can’t even make one nice zombie for the start-up screen here. But the game manages to be better than the impression that it gives. Yes, there are zombies chasing our hero and this time we go through the dark dungeons collecting coins and trying to get rid of the monsters. The problems are all there and we have to jump, slide and turn. The graphics is less due to its setting, but still fine, and it is pretty good with this background. The cleaning softwate does have some problem with this though. But a lot more statistics please?

6. Tomb Run: Even though this one impressed me with the app page, there was not much there in the game. From the first screen itself, it seemed kind of out of order. But I liked the variety in traps which were there and death thus had some more style. It is good to be in the tomb of monsters and traps which can kill us in a nicer brutal manner. There are not even much options here, and the absence of a detailed status hurts as we are rather unclear what to unlock when, and if there is any advantage of the continuous running that we put up during our joblessness.

7. City Zombie Run: This movie has a protagonist with a gun which he starts shooting if there is a zombie in front of him. Set in the city with all signs of a zombie apolcapyse, this game is not that easy to control, and movement remains pain for most occasions. There are not enough score details to add to the motivation or a better collection of instructions here. But this can surely remind you of Resident Evil as you go through the infested city after something like a virus outbreak.

8. Lost Temple: I downloaded this one and found out that it was Lost Temple 2 – so there was a part one? This one begins with a huge protagonist who can somehow move, and has a hook on his hand – not really the best starts there. The game also has no scores being saved, and there is no user-friendly menus, forget the friendly controls. This one surely has the need to be like Temple Run, but is nowhere close to it. This is mostly a lost game, and should prove useful if the other games are not available and you really need to run.
