Pyramid Run Android game Review

Read this review of Pyramid Run, an android game and also helpful tips for playing the game and gameplay video too.

Pros and cons of Pyramid Run game
Pros: Nice game for short time gameplay
Cons: Poor audio, poor controls, bad rip-off of Temple Run

If you have played Temple Run then this game is definitely not for you. An endless running game developed by LeTang, Pyramid Run is a cheap rip off of Temple Run game. Your character is a guy in clothes similar to Prince of Persia running continuously avoiding traps and mummies. Four control options- left or right swipe to move correspondingly, up swipe makes you jump and a downward swipe to give you a down swipe. Know why we did not like this game and what are the features of this game in our complete review.

Not to be too negative, let me start with a few positives of this game. The 3D graphics are praise worthy and the gameplay is an mindbuster with its intuitiveness. There is quite a difference in the graphics. Overall, a good game to play in case you just want a game to help you cover 5-6 minutes.

The game might be 3D but the graphics themselves are not too detailed when compared to Temple Run. The gameplay happens inside a pyramid which gives the game its name Pyramid Run. The audio is Egyptian, matching to the pyramid area of gameplay but the tuning looked mismatched with the gameplay. The audio is copied from Temple Run but sadly, LeTang did not make the effort to customize it for their game.

Worse than the audio is the controls of Pyramid Run game. I am quite sure that it was not just my tablet which was doing so, but many of my left and right swipes did not register which in this type of games is enough to end your session. There is nothing much in the gameplay, all you can do with your earnt coins is buy extra life, i.e. no power ups or anything else. Temple Run was much more complex in its gameplay, keeping you interested for a longer time but sadly Pyramid Run inspite of being a successor/rip-off, has made a barebone version rather than an advanced gaming experience.

Pyramid Run is really a disappointing title from LeTang who have previously given some good titles. They have taken the gameplay idea and skin from Temple Run but sadly did not add up any extra features from their own side. In short, with its barebone copying, bad audio and controls and with a better title available, Pyramid Run seems to have no future at all. Why would anyone play Pyramid Run when their is a better version in form of Temple Run available? The characterization of Prince of Persia like character in Pyramids of mideast itself sounds very strange.
