So while I was grubbing on some shrimp and broccoli, pork chow mein and fried rice, I was giving the newly released Temple Run 2 a try. Like the first game, this was also free, which I appreciate when it comes to kids wanting every game they see under the sun.
It controls much like the first game, with the biggest, most noticeable difference in the two in the level designs. The mountain landscape in 2 feels much more polished and cleaner. The game itself is still as frustrating as ever at some points, but in an addictive sort of way. Once you die, all you want to do is go back and try to get farther the next time. Thanks to the random path generator of the game, it's quite difficult to repeat your previous without a little bit of luck.
I'm not going to lie, either. I suck at it. Maybe I was just rushing myself, knowing how much was on my plate tonight, but my son's scores blew mine out of the water tenfold. Oh well, I can't be a master at everything I suppose.
Sorry again for the short post, friends. I have a clear schedule tomorrow night and plan to do some serious gaming, if all goes well. Or maybe I will just sleep. I guess we will just have to wait and find out.
