If you’re a fan of Temple Run, then you’ll want to grab the all new Temple Run: Brave game for Windows Phone 8. The game follows on the heels of the Windows 8 version released a few weeks ago and much like its predecessor, goes for $0.99 without a free trial.
We’re not sure why the devs at Disney and behind Temple Run are so against trials, but we bought the game and tossed together a quick video presented below. Off the cuff, we have no complaints about the game (well, it could use a double wide tile, we suppose). Graphics have been updated, it runs smooth and the touch response seems good to us at these early stages.
In case you’re curious, the game is a mashup between the Temple Run franchise and the Disney movie Brave. The backgrounds have been updated with lush forest greens, the main player is now a female lead (who seems to have lost her voice from the Windows 8 version) and you can shoot arrows from your trusty bow at some targets.
Overall, it’s quite fun and a great time waster. Like all Temple Run games, it features in-app purchasing via gold coins you collect or you can opt to “cheat” and buy packs of coins to enhance your character.
Other features include:
- Introducing ARCHERY – tap targets to shoot a bullseye and earn extra coins
- New, amazing visuals. It looks better than ever!
- All new environments inspired by Disney/Pixar Brave and the wilds of Scotland
- Play as Merida from Disney/Pixar Brave
- Outrun Mordu, the demon bear, to earn running glory
You can pick up Temple Run: Brave for Windows Phone 8 here in the Store. Note: Devices with 512MB of RAM are not eligible to play this game! Let the developer know you want 512 MB support by tweeting to @kshepherd and @imangi.
