The sequel to the popular game “Temple Run” was released for Android & iOS recently. Here are some tips & tricks that I discovered while playing for how to get the most coins and the highest score in Temple Run 2!
- Upgrade the Coin Value ability as quickly as possible. At max level, the Coin Value ability allows you to collect double coins (red coins) after 1,000m and triple value coins (blue coins) after 2,000m. Upgrading this ability early will allow you to maximize the number of coins you collect on each run.
- Prioritize the Coin Magnet. The coin magnet allows you to collect a lot of coins you otherwise would have missed because of jumping or shifting too early or too late. Definitely upgrade the Coin Magnet ability as much as possible, which allows the magnet to last longer. Upgrading the Pickup Spawn ability will let you find the magnet bubbles more often, so this is also useful to upgrade. More importantly, once your character passes Level 5, the Coin Magnet will be available as a Power Up. If you enable this, every time the power meter fills up you can double tap the screen to immediately activate a coin magnet. Then, upgrading the Power Meter ability will allow you to fill up the meter more quickly, and therefore, use the coin magnet more often.
- Collect as many gems as possible and use them to resurrect yourself. The big green gems are very valuable because after you die, you have the opportunity to “save” yourself and resume the game where you died. It only costs one gem for the first “save” on any given game, but the cost increases from there. As a result, I usually only limit myself to using a “save” once per game. Only resurrect yourself if you are past where the double & triple value coins appear. That way, you will be able to capture the most amount of coins for the use of your gem.
You can’t collect any coins if you are dead! Some other tips to stay alive include: In mine cart mode, tilt your phone left and right at each fork instead of swiping. If the game is moving too fast, purposely trip over a roof or turn into a wall. The monster following you will start to catch up, but you will slow down and maneuvering will be easier. Just don’t trip twice!
More coins equals more score, so if you follow these tips, you will be able to collect tons of coins and score very highly!
