''Temple Run'' is an arcade game for the [=iPhone/iPad=] and Android. In it, you play an explorer who [[ExcusePlot steals a sacred idol and spends the entirety of the game running from demonic monkeys]] [[EndlessRunningGame until he inevitably slips up on some obstacle and dies]]. It is notable for its addictive gameplay and attractive graphics, which are better than most other smartphone games. Not to be confused with the bonus round of a [[LegendsoftheHiddenTemple nostalgic Nickelodeon game show]].

* AndYourRewardIsClothes: ''Temple Run 2'' introduced "Global Challenges" in 2016, and the prize for the top bracket is often a new hat for your adventurer. Lower prizes are gold or gems (also the award for the daily/weekly challenges). Hats are also the reward for completing the holiday artifact collections.

* FollowTheLeader: There are many clones of ''Temple Run'' that have spawned in the App Store from time to time, such as ''Subway Surfers'' and ''VideoGame/RunNGun''. Opinions will vary on if they're better or worse.
** Similarly, ''Temple Run'' was arguably what started the big boom in "Freemium" games, causing many other iOS titles to adapt a similar currency system where you win money or other prizes based on how you perform in game and can spend real-life money to increase that amount to ridiculous numbers. Even the ''VideoGame/AngryBirds'' series could not avoid this.

* FakeDifficulty: The "Frozen Shadows" update looks great, but the backgrounds are so detailed and distracting that it's much harder to see turns and traps.
