We’ve heard a rumour (from a trustworthy source) that a new version of Temple Run is on the way very soon. No word on what the update might contain but we hope it at least fixes the “double swipe” bug that people still seem to be using to get insanely high scores.
In case you haven’t heard about it – sometimes if you swipe the screen (as if to turn) twice in quick succession, you can cause your Temple Run character to turn back the way they came, running back towards the temple! You never actually get there though, the level usually seems to just continue as normal, but sometimes you can get stuck running forever down a perfectly straight path, with no danger of dying. As you can imagine, this racks up a high score very quickly and, in our opinion, ruins the game for those of us trying to legitimately get high scores!
So, here’s hoping that gets fixed in a new version. What features would you like to see in the next version of Temple Run? Let us know in the comments below and we’ll publish the most popular suggestions in another post. To get the ball rolling, how about… new temples to escape from? Or maybe special abilities for each character. Fingers crossed!
