The Temple Run
games have virtually defined the endless runner genre, so it's fitting that virtual reality defines the latest entry, Temple Run VR
. Designed for the Samsung Gear VR
(a more portable version of the Oculus Rift
virtual reality headset that substitutes a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 for its screen), Temple Run VR
puts you into the first-person view of an explorer who steals an ancient idol and is subsequently hunted by Arctic Demon Monkeys.
Well, it won't win any awards for best writing, but sometimes you just want to get straight into the action.
"We're thrilled to see this new virtual reality technology in the hands of consumers, and are inspired by the potential for new game experiences," Keith Shepherd, co-founder of developer Imangi Studios said in a press release. "It's been a pleasure working with Samsung and Oculus to bring Temple Run VR
to life, and we can't wait to see what players think of the chase."
Temple Run VR
is now available to download via the Gear VR's digital storefront for free.
