Temple Run

Hey guys! I know I haven't blogged in a while but I'm not giving up on you. A lot's happened to me since my last two extremely short posts, but I don't find any of it particularly interesting, so I doubt you will.

A Paragraph About My Life Lately: I got a new guitar for my birthday, I'm currently playing Lemon Drop by The Pistol Annies, Cold As You by Taylor Swift, Drops of Jupiter by Train, and Last Kiss by Taylor Swift. I'm in my school play, Leaping Beauty and Other Animal Fairy Tales. Which is based on the book of the same name by Gregory Maguire, author of Wicked. The show is actually the story Leaping Beauty and the within that story, they tell The Three Little Penguins and The Big Bad Walrus. I'm in The Three Little Penguins and The Big Bad Walrus. I play the middle penguin. The other penguins and Mama Penguin are played by my friends I, L, and G.

Anyways, this post isn't actually about my life, it's about a popular game for iPads, iPhones, and iPod touch's, Temple Run.

Random Fact About Temple Run: My sister's friend's math teacher's daughter invented Temple Run.

Incase you don't what Temple Run is, here's a short summary of the game: You're running through an outdoor temple collecting coins. Sometimes you have to jump, duck, and tilt. There are weird sound effects.

Lately, Temple Run is one of the, if not THE, most popular game played on Apple products(it comes to Android this month). Almost everyone I know is addicted, including me. I'm pretty good, my high score is 3.3 million . Which, is better then most people's.

So here's my confusion: Why is a game that is as dumb as it's title applies, SO popular? What are your thoughts? I personally think it's the addictiveness of the game. And yes, I do know that addictiveness is not a word.


  1. Addictiveness is a word and that sounds right to me. I wonder if people get especially addicted to games in which you move things around or games in which you always think that maybe you'll do better next time or both - like Temple Run and Tetris which I was soooo addicted to a long time ago. Then again I also got addicted to WordTwist and FreeCell, neither of which has you move around. Anyway, good question!

    1. Well, according to Blogger addictiveness is NOT a word. And I get what you're saying.
