Temple Run 2 Beginners Tips
a) BECAUSE CHARACTER MATTERS:Unlike the older version, in which all the characters were having similar powers and only difference between them was their appearance , there are certain power associated with each character in Temple Run 2. Default character is “GUY DANGEROUS”. For him, the default POWER is Shield. So when you start the game, check the top left corner. There is a power meter and with each coin you collect, power meter will increase. Once it is full , just double tap the screen to activate the power instantly. Once activated ; after sometime, power meter is reset and power is gone. You can again activate the power once the power meter is full again. If you hit any obstacle, in that case also POWER meter is reset and you have to collect the coins again to fill the Power meter from start.
b) DON’T LOSE YOUR COINS:If you have more than 2500 coins , at the start of the game you may see a prompt on your screen to utilize 2500 coins for 1000m boost run. Initially you should avoid using this option and use coins to unlock/increase the POWERUPS.
c) EASY RESTART:While running and collecting the coins, you may come across GREEN COLOR gems. Collect these gems as it will help you in restarting your game. For first restart, it will take 1 Gem then 2 Gems for second restart and 4 gems for third restart then 8,16,32 and so on. You may also collect the gems via power meter at the later stage when that POWERUP is activated. Unlike older version, where you have to buy the wings before the game start and activate it by double tap the screen for 30 seconds , in Temple Run 2 you can restart the game after it is over. Once your game ends, you will see SAVE ME icon on screen along with the gem it needs for restarting, click on it and you game will start from that place again.
d) FOLLOW OBJECTIVES SEQUENCE:Unlike previous version where all the objectives were open from starting, in Temple Run 2 you have clearly defined objectives at each level. You have to complete those objectives to move to higher level. With levels, there are more powers associated. For example: To unlock COIN MAGNET POWERUP for POWER METER you need to reach LEVEL 5. So keeping track of objectives is also required.
e) NOT A STRAIGHT ROAD:You may take time to get used to curve road and automatic sideways movement of the character while running.
f) INVEST COINS WHERE:Preference should be given to increasing the coin value and increasing the coin magnet powers initially.
TEMPLE RUN 2 TRICK to COLLECT MORE COINS:
In Temple Run 2, coins are everything. It will help you in unlocking few powers, completing few objectives, unlocking new characters SCARLETT FOX, BARRY BONES, KARMA LEE and powerup associated with these characters. So is there a way by which you can collect more coins ? There is no cheat however there is a trick to collect more coins. Complete your objectives and reach LEVEL 5. In the meantime upgrade COIN MAGNET in abilities to full. Once you reach LEVEL 5, COIN MAGNET as POWER METER Powerup will be unlocked. Select the POWERUP and chose COIN MAGNET as new power. This will be activated once your power meter is full. Now start the game. Once the POWER METER is full, trigger the COIN MAGNET power by double tapping the screen. Once the coin magnet power is activated , trip intentionally. This will make power meter empty however your COIN MAGNET power still be working. Now collect as much coin as possible. By the time, the power will finish you would have your POWER METER almost full again. In this manner, you can continue using COIN MAGNET power throughout your run and can collect as much coins as possible. The only problem with this trick is you will be followed by a giant ape every time you trip. You can also invest on POWER METER in abilities which will let POWER METER to fill more quickly.
Update: This trick don’t work on new update Version 1.0.1 Now the power meter remains full if power is activated and gets empty only after the power duration is over. Tripping won’t empty it.
