For many years children’s films have been accompanied by video games usually multiplatform, and not very good; Hollywood studios recently implemented a new strategy when it comes to iOS games, as they pay for the rights of an existing one and add traits to it on the tape. This is how we have Angry Birds Rio or Fruit Ninja: Puss in Boots , and now it’s the Disney / Pixar turn with Temple Run: Brave .
The new animation giant Brave tells the story of a fiery redheaded princess who seeks to get rid of the spell she was forced to save her family. The history takes place in Celtic Scotland, so we will find wooded landscapes, magic and medieval action. As for the game with which this story will be combined, Temple Run was released for iOS platforms in 2011; The objective is to escape from some strange monkeys that try to catch you; No end, no bosses, just run and get as far as possible.
The most remarkable thing to begin to play this new fusion of intellectual properties is the impressive graphic improvement to which the original was submitted. Everything we’ve seen in Temple Run now has 3D graphics with high-resolution textures, shadows, and the implementation of fog that improves the sense of going into the unknown. As we expected, the protagonist was replaced by Princess Merida and the angry primates, by a ferocious bear that appears in the trailers of the film.
They also added a new feature to the gameplay: you must shoot with your bow to targets that appear during the race; Just touch the circles and if you succeed in all, you receive a bonus. During this stage there are no obstacles, only coins, so you can focus your attention on this goal and rest for a while from the logs, stones and gorges that you usually find on the road.
Unfortunately with the improvements also came some problems, as it is a game so fast new graphics affect its performance, and sometimes everything stops for a couple of seconds or does not respond to tactile commands, which causes you to lose, in addition Increase battery consumption. Another unfavorable detail of the game is that it costs a dollar, while the original was free.
Although it is practically the title that we know, the implemented improvements give a sense of novelty that make use of the dollar, especially for the followers of Pixar.
