Gameplay

Temple Run: Puzzle Adventure Review
Match-3 to complete the levels and get further!

The words ‘Temple Run’ on the app store is always going to grab my reaction, no matter what. It was one of the first games I ever played when I got my first iPhone so it makes me feel very nostalgic.

So when I saw Temple Run: Puzzle Adventure on Apple Arcade, I knew I had to try it out. Unfortunately, I wasn’t too impressed with the gameplay. When you think of Temple Run, you think of an endless runner, not a match-3 game. I feel like there are more than enough match-3 games on the app store, there isn’t a need for any more! Especially when nothing about it is unique from the rest…

Graphics

Temple Run: Puzzle Adventure Review
There’s nothing unique about the graphics but they’re not bad either!

I’m not huge on the graphics, although they’re not bad, they’re nothing unique. I’m a big fan of graphics that stand out from other games and this certainly didn’t do it for me!

Music & Sounds

The audio is very generic with nothing special to it. In all honesty, I would recommend playing this game muted as it’s quite repetitive and annoying!

Controls

Temple Run: Puzzle Adventure Review
Swipe to match gems!

If you’ve played a match-3 game before, you already know what the controls are. Swipe the gems to match 3 or more to complete the puzzle!

The Power of in-app Purchases

Temple Run: Puzzle Adventure Review
This game is included in Apple Arcade!

This game is a part of the Apple Arcade subscription ($4.99 a month) so there are no in-app purchases or ads.

The Verdict

Temple Run: Puzzle Adventure Review
What did you think?!

This game was fun, don’t get me wrong, but there was nothing special about it compared to other match-3 games. If I’m honest, this isn’t a game I’m going to keep on my phone.
