If someone walked up to me on the street and told me that Temple Run: Oz the Great and Powerful was going to be coming out, I’d have told them that they were nuts. And it’s not that I’m slighting the movie folks for wanting to exploit what is arguably one of the most successful mobile franchises ever, but damn, could we come up with a better name? I know, I know, “What’s the point of a movie tie-in if we don’t have the name of the movie in the game?” The point is that right now it takes me longer to say the name of the game than it will to play the damned thing. But I digress.
Coming out hot on the heels of the explosively-popular Temple Run 2, TR:OtGaP (maybe I can get away with calling it “TROTGAP”) doesn’t have much confirmed press other than a mention on Twitter, a recently taken-down FB post, and news sites like Destructoid that I read about this on. But how is nobody talking about this atrocious name? Maybe TROTGAP is good enough.
TROTGAP will be for iOS, Android, and probably not Windows Phone on February 27th. You’re probably looking at shelling out around $.99 US, but if you want to get some endless-running in for free, check out Temple Run 2. TROTGAP is jealous of its clean, easy-to-speak name.
