Temple Run is addictive, mindless, endless and free, as noted in Get App-y today on NewsOK.com. But it’s not the only one that fits this description available on the iTunes app store. (Some have Android versions, too.)
In a recent talk with sixth-graders, all agreed that they loved the running, jumping, swiping and coin-collecting from Temple Run, but they’ve moved on to Jetpack Joyride (free, Halfbrick), starring “Barry Steakfries,” who is riding a jetpack through some sort of scientific lab facility. He flies, collects coins and crashes into obstacles, an act that ends the game.
I also have laughed at “Sky Burger” recently, which involves creating a hamburger to order from the lettuce, tomatoes, patties, pickles, onions and bread that fall from the sky. The level is over when you add the top of the bun, but if you add it too soon, you lose. It, too, is free.
I’ll post more later, but here are two to get you started if you’ve already achieved all the objectives in Temple Run.
Then again, these are endless, too.
