Temple Run: Spinoffs
In June 2012, it was announced that Imangi had teamed with Disney to promote the film Brave via a Temple Run-style game titled Temple Run: Brave. The game was released on June 14 for iOS and Android.As with Temple Run when it was initially released, Temple Run: Brave cost 99 cents to purchase. After Temple Run: Brave’s release on the App Store, the game topped the charts as the most-downloaded paid game.
Temple Run: Brave is set in the highlands of Scotland. The default character is Merida, and as in the original game, the objective is to keep running, avoiding the dangers along the way in an effort to achieve the longest time possible, while being chased by the demon bear, Mor’du.
The new feature for Temple Run: Brave is archery. During the run, archery symbols appear with some dots above them, acting as a signal that there will be bullseyes at which to shoot. The dots are the number of targets in the area. On the left and right sides, the player will then find archery targets, and by touching the screen, an arrow is shot accurately at the upcoming target. When the player finishes hitting all targets in the area, they get a coin bonus, and must then wait for another area with archery targets.
In an update, Temple Run: Brave received a new power-up, the “Will-o’-the-Wisps”, which appear in the game randomly. When the player grabs it, they are transported to a “dark” version of the game world, where glowing wisps appear in the player’s path. The player has to grab as many as they can, while still navigating the turns and jumps.
In 2013, Temple Run: Brave was ported to Windows Phone 8, and both Windows 8 and Windows RT (via Windows Store). In 2014, it was ported to BlackBerry 10
