The Good Temple Run Oz has lush environments, a tried-and-true game mechanic, and unique new worlds and mini-games that differentiate it from other Temple Run games.

The Bad Strange progress bars when you enter a new world are distracting, and it seems silly that the game would have them at all.

The Bottom Line Anyone who likes endless runners or who has enjoyed Temple Run games in the past should check out this game for the new worlds, obstacles, and mini-games.

Temple Run Oz (iOS | Android) is another movie-themed version of the mega-popular running game, but just like Temple Run Brave, the developers managed to add enough original content to make it worth your money.

In Temple Run Oz, you play as Oz while attempting to outrun the evil flying baboons from "Oz the Great and Powerful." Like Temple Run 2, you'll need to swipe to jump, turn, and slide under obstacles and you can tilt to move Oz from side to side on the path. But with this themed remake, the scenery has been completely redesigned to fit in with the movie, and there are new game elements you'll have to tackle in order to survive as long as possible. In other words, you're not just getting an older game with a new "skin"; Temple Run Oz uses the same core gameplay, but adds plenty to make the game unique on its own.
