This was the premise for the first Temple Run, a hit mobile game: Your character has stolen an idol from a temple, and has to outrun temple guardians (monkey-beast things) while avoiding obstacles and nabbing coins, for as long as possible. Now, just-released for iOS, is Temple Run 2, and that description pretty much sums it up, too.
"The plot is hysterical in both senses of the word, at the same time. Things are always happening, and there is always a blast door that must be shut on penalty of galactic holocaust, and there is a guy with evil intentions for humanity named THE DIDACT who looks like a dad in a bad Predator costume, but THE DIDACT may actually have understandably evil intentions for humanity, and your top-heavy computer program sidekick is going crazy, which for her means sometimes getting a bit sassy and turning red, which makes me wonder if I am going crazy, because I sometimes get a bit sassy and turn red, and even though you are eight feet tall and have repeatedly saved the world you have not received a promotion and no one trusts your instincts, and also your first name is John. John Master Chief."
So goes this excellent review of Halo 4 by friend of PopSci (and, um, roommate of me) Joe Bernstein over at Kill Screen. Read it, it's the tops.
This is how the just-released game Curiosity: What's Inside The Cube? works: Anyone with an iPhone or iPad can download the iOS app. With the app, the players connect on the Internet, furiously tapping on their screens to remove pixely chunks of a single, gigantic cube. The one player lucky enough to remove the final pixel from the cube gets to see what creator Peter Molyneux calls a "life-changing" secret. So naturally, the gamers have already worked together to chip out pixels that form swear words. But still. Pretty neat game idea. [Kotaku]
