‘Temple Run: Oz’ Movie Tie-In Goes Live on App Store [iOS Blog]
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:
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]
