What a fun game!

I like this game! It's very creative--the graphics are very pretty. If your child has seen "Oz the Great Powerful" (and enjoyed it), they will certainly love it! The different worlds are creative, and fun. It IS .99 cents, but that is okay because the game is very nice, and a little harder than temple run. My 12 year old loves temple run, but wishes it was a little harder. I got this for her and she loved it a lot, and I'm pretty sure she's playing on it now. I say violence because, like Temple Run, the character can get captured (by a flying monkey this time), fall of cliffs, trip, etc. It's not bad--but still there. Anyways, I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys Temple Run!

Too much violence

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (3):

If you liked Temple Run 2, you're probably going to like Temple Run: Oz. That's because they're essentially the same game. Built on top of the engine for the recently released sequel to the popular franchise, this movie-tie in adds just a few small changes to the formula -- and one mid-sized one with the addition of the hot air balloon sequences.

There's nothing wrong with that, of course. Everything that worked there works here. If you've recently grown tired of Temple Run 2 and were hoping this game presented some new challenges and changes, you may be disappointed. But if you enjoy the earlier games and want to play in a new setting, you'll love it.
