1/ Launch the game. After a few seconds of loading, the game’s intro page will finally appear. Here, you can either tinker with the game’s menu or start the game immediately.
2/ Observe the layout. Temple Run 2 has a simple user interface, familiarize yourself with the buttons and other stuff on the screen before you make your first run. Once you start running – you won’t be able to look anywhere else except for the track ahead of you.
3/ Do the tutorial. Your run begins right at the very start of the game. Evil monkeys are after you so you better keep running!

The tutorial will teach you how to jump across gaps. This can be done by swiping your finger upwards across the screen.
To turn to either left or right, you just have to swipe the screen on the direction you want to turn.

5/ Get that power-up. While running, you will eventually find power-ups along the way. Grab these power-ups if you have the chance for they will give you certain skills that will help you run further into the game. These power-ups are temporary so better take advantage of their effect while they last.
