The Temple Run games have virtually become the flagship endless runner, so it’s fitting that virtual reality defines the latest entry, Temple Run VR.
Developed for the Samsung Gear VR, which is a more portable version of the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset that uses a Galaxy Note 4 for its screen. Temple Run VR puts you into the first-person view of an explorer who steals an ancient idol and is subsequently hunted by Arctic Demon Monkeys.
Well, it won’t win any awards for best writing, but sometimes you just want to get straight into the action.
Keith Shepherd, Imangi Studios co-founder:
“We’re thrilled to see this new virtual reality technology in the hands of consumers, and are inspired by the potential for new game experiences. It’s been a pleasure working with Samsung and Oculus to bring Temple Run VR to life, and we can’t wait to see what players think of the chase.”
Temple Run VR is now available to download via the Gear VR’s digital storefront for free.
