5 Games Like Temple Run

Updated on September 22, 2013

Temple Run - Endless Running Game

Temple Run is one of the most played mobile games to date. It is so successful that it's hard to find an iPhone or Android user that has yet to try out the game. The key to its success is its very simple gameplay. You take the role of an explorer who has stolen an idol from the temple, and subsequently gets chased down by monkeys. You either have to jump, duck, or turn in order to clear obstacles, all while trying to get as much coins and powerups as possible to gain the highest score.

Although Temple Run is undoubtedly a great game, it is not the only game in its genre that could provide you with the same amount of fun. Here are other games like Temple Run that offer just as much fun and excitement.

5 Games Like Temple Run


Subway Surfers

Subway Surfers is an endless running - or surfing, if you will - game like Temple Run. If you are tired of being chased by demonic monkeys, then maybe its time for you to hit the subways and surf all day.

Subway Surfers has very beautiful and colorful graphics. Similar to Temple Run, your goal is to collect as much coins as you can while trying to evade various obstacles in your way. It's very cool to see your character jump over from one train to another, dodge the oncoming trains, and use a cute little jetpack.

It wouldn't take very long for you to get addicted to this game. So if you need another time-killer, be sure to check out Subway Surfers.

Jetpack Joyride

Buckle your seatbelts and prepare for one fantastic ride! Jetpack Joyride is an extremely fun mobile game from the creators of the huge hit, Fruit Ninja. Join Barry as he enters a secret laboratory to check out some very cool jetpacks!

You'll begin the game with the Machine Gun Jetpack, but as you collect coins and complete missions, you earn cash which you can use to purchase new gear in The Stash. You can also get powerups inside the laboratory that transforms you into various vehicles, such as the Lil' Stomper and Crazy Freaking Teleporter. There is a huge arsenal of jetpacks and vehicles to unlock, so you are always going to find something to look forward to.

Jetpack Joyride is a very simple, yet highly entertaining game. Be sure to try this game out.

Agent Dash

Looking for a game like Temple Run with lots of action and explosive gameplay? Then suit up and take on the role of Agent Dash, as he takes you on a wild ride.

The objective of the game is to destroy as many villainous bases as you can. But it wouldn't be easy as many obstacles would hinder you: from lasers and flaming hot lava, to skidding trucks and horrid explosions.

But do not worry, as Agent Dash has a lot of gadgets you can use such as parachutes and jetpacks. Destroy the enemies' bases with your weapons and escape the scene like a true hero.

Agent Dash is overall a fantastic game you wouldn't want to miss.

Falling Fred

If you don't mind seeing limbs being cut off or bodies cut in half, then you wouldn't have any problems with Falling Fred. Don't blame me if you find yourself wanting to throw up after playing this!

In this game, Fred's fate lies in your hands, as you try to avoid various obstacles that all leads to his inevitable death. From spinning razors and flame throwers to sharp blades and some head crashing galore, there always seems like a new hazard wanting to get a piece of Fred. And the funny thing is you can watch a replay of your landing and enjoy it over and over again if you're really the morbid type. You can also share how Fred suffered his ill fate with your friends online.

Falling Fred is not for the feint of heart, but for those who have the guts to endure some bloody scenes, Falling Fred is certainly fun and addictive.

Temple Run: Brave

If you really like Temple Run but want some variety, then you should try Temple Run: Brave. This one's a fairly obvious choice, and this game might very well satisfy your addiction to endless running games.

With the release of the film, Brave, by Disney/Pixar comes this much anticipated app, Temple Run: Brave. It's basically the same as the original version, just with a few changes and a new feature. Instead of playing an explorer, you control Merida as you navigate your way past various obstacles. The environment has been changed, drawing inspiration from the movie. And in this edition, you get to shoot some arrows! That's right, you just wouldn't jump, duck, and turn all day. Certain targets appear during the game, and Merida shoots them if you tap them fast enough, earning you some nice bonus points.

Temple Run: Brave is quite simply a must-play game for endless running game fans.
