Temple Run: Brave App Review

The interactive team at Disney presents an all new app featuring Merida from Disney Pixar’s Brave. We get our hands on it and see if it’s worth the download.

The Name of the Game

From Imangi, the makers of Temple Run, and Disney comes a new take on the most exhilarating app in the App Store. Join Merida from Disney/Pixar Brave as you run, slide, jump, turn and shoot your way across the wilds of Scotland on an endless running adventure!

New features just for Temple Run: Brave —
• 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

The Verdict

Addictive! Really, you start off with a quick tutorial on the controls which is pretty easy to get used to and then you start running from Mordu, the demon bear and try to earn as much points as possible.

With your figure (literally) you have to control the directions of Merida by turning left, right or jumping over stretches of water. Careful though, some parts of the map require you to slide under obstacles. I’ve been fooled many times.

Well I gotta say that it’s a very simple and straightforward game but it is highly addictive. You just keep wanting to go back and outdo your high score, earn points / coins to buy power ups which can make the game more interesting and you can unlock different outfits for Merida as well.

Graphics wise, the visuals are good and it runs very smoothly without lagging or hanging which can be a big disruption to the enjoyment of the game.

 Rating: 4 out of 5

Simply because that for the amount you pay, it’s really hours of fun as you try to beat yourself!
