Imangi Studios just released a brand new runner called Temple Run Oz. The entire game is inspired from the upcoming movie “Oz the Great and Powerful” by Sam Raimi. While the movie features James Franco as the main protagonist, the game lets you play the same infinite running adventure with an animated version of the hero. The basic gameplay is pretty similar to that of Temple Run 2 with a few tweaks and enhancements to suit the Oz world theme. One key area where I saw a bit of an improvement is it’s graphics. You will run through huge wild trees, yellow brick road, dark forests etc. The game also signifies a brand new collaborative marketing strategy that is currently trending between the gaming and movie industry.
Earlier, we all saw how Temple Run Brave was marketed as an extension of the original animation film. Looks like the bond between these two industries will strengthen over the next few years as more producers invest on game based marketing and attract new audiences. Anyways, I started playing this iPad game and I will post the full review within 1-2 days. Below are some cool new features listed on their official app store description. If you download the game today then you can earn a bonus of 1500 coins for various upgrades.Enjoy!
