Going outside my usual topics, here’s how to beat a certain smartphone game. 🙂
The short version:
* Unlock Scarlett Fox as quickly as possible, to get the “boost” power-up.
* Once you have it, always use Boost.
* Once you have bought everything else, use the big head start as often s possible.
* You will reach level 9 once you have been running 10.000.000 meters.
* You get levels by doing achievements. There are three available at a time. Eventually you will only have one achievement left to do: Infinirunner, which is to run a total of 10.000.000 meters. Thus, when you are level 8 and the bar to level 9 is almost full, you may still actually have three quarters of the actual way to level 9 left.
Hi there. This video is for people who play the smartphone game Temple Run 2, and want to reach level 9 as quickly as possible. If you haven’t played the game, you might want to try it out. It’s free. By the way, leveling strategy is all I’m going to talk about in this video. No social commentary this time.
So, okay. You want to get to level 9 as fast as possible. And there’s really only one strategy for that. You need to run ten million meters, that’s it.
If you are new to the game, buy a few cheap money power-ups first. And then as fast as possible unlock the character Scarlett Fox. You don’t need to play her, you just need to unlock her. Because theer are several different power-ups in this game you can use one at a time. And you need to have the one called “boost”, the one you get from unlocking Scarlett Fox.
You need to have Boost on at all times, or almost all times. If you need another power-up for some achievement or whatever, go for it. But switch back to Boost as quickly as possible.
Once you have Scarlett Fox, buy all the regular upgrades, then unlock all other characters. Once you have bought everything, just keep using the big* Head Start as often as possible.
The key here is to avoid the temptation to use the coin magnet or the shield as your pre-selected power-up. Doing so would make your early game easier, you don’t have THAT much use for boost. But it would come back and haunt you later. Keep using boost instead, and you will reach level 9 much quicker. Good luck.
To make it less simple, the game works like this. You reach new levels by completing achievements. There will be three achievements available each time. So you must complete them a bit in order. And it goes quick at first, less and less quick later. But eventually there will only be one achievement left to complete, and that will be the one called “Infinirunner” – where you’re supposed to run ten million meters. You will complete ALL other achievements much faster: You might have three quarters left to do on infinirunner once you have completed everything else. So, just keep running… just like the name of the game says.
In general, there are three kinds of achievements. It’s the “Do something” achievemnents, “do something now” achievements, and “do something in your lifetime achievements”.
The “Do something” achievements are very simple. For example, it can be “run a thousand meters”. And if you only run five hundred meters, then just run twice. No problem.
The second kind is a bit trickier. If it’s about running a thousand meters, you have to do that in one run. So you might have to practice a bit. I don’t really have any advice here, just “practice makes perfect”. And use different preselected power-ups if you have to. Just remember to switch back, once you are done with that achievement. And use the daily challenges as well… I mean, they can be fun, and they give some extra money for head start and such.
So, that’s pretty much it. Have fun.
( * = This is assuming you gather enough coins on your runs. If you can’t affoard the big head start every second run or so, it’s better to use the small head start.)
