Temple Run 2 and Subway Surfers are without a doubt two of the most popular mobile games at the moment.
Both provide users with ultimate fun and excitement. Here we will make a comparison of the two games and eventually decide on the better option.
Both apps can be played on iOS and Android operating systems. Both have one objective: run the longest distance and avoid or overcome obstacles along the way. Players will be able to collect coins and gems along the way as well as some power-ups.
When it comes to graphics, Subway Surfers is more engaging than Temple Run 2. It is also more visually appealing. How the character flies into the camera and slides down when hit by a train is simply astounding.
In terms of game play, Temple Run 2 has the advantage. It has more advanced power-ups and upgrades. Temple Run 2 has a simpler and straightforward mission set. On the other hand, Subway Surfers require the user to take several directions before completing a mission.
Subway Surfers has more pricey characters than Temple Run 2. A great example is Price K who is valued at almost a million coins. In Temple Run 2, the most expensive character is only worth 250,000 coins.
In Subway Surfers, all other characters can be unlocked by collecting items from mystery boxes, which adds difficulty to the game. It seems clear that Subway Surfers uses this strategy to monetize the game and encourage players to buy more points in order to play more advanced game levels.
Subway Surfers is more forgiving on the aspect of obstacles. In Temple Run 2, once you hit an obstacle, that’s it, you are dead. On the other hand, you get hit by an obstacle in Subway Surfers and you can still keep running.
Temple Run 2 has a more realistic touch to its visuals. It makes the player feel like Indiana Jones. Likewise, it is set on an imaginary setting (even with the South American ruins background). The monster chasing the character in Temple Run 2 is more menacing compared to the inspector chasing the character chosen by the player.
Subway Surfers has more cartoony characters. Its setting is set on animated backdrops of various cities. The characters and obstacles are not as serious as those found in Temple Run 2.
