Now it is free, I also download it.
I thinks it is not better then temple, but also i can get fun with the game.
If you like some kinds of game like temple run, you can try it.

Temple Run is surely becoming a runner subgenre. LOL

Heh he, this one looks kind of funny.
That's two TR clones I seen today, right next to each other.

Edit:
Actually, after playing some of it,
it doesn't feel like temple run at all.

I have nothing to add except...I just dont get the popularity of these endless runner games. They get boring after a few minutes of gameplay.

Jetpack Joyride blows Temple Run out of the water in my opinion....and even thst game has only so much gameplay until...Zzzzzz boredom city. Subway Surfers is a decent clone.

It's all about preference. Your signature suggest you favor the pretty games. That's your preference.

Dont get me wrong, i like those titles in your favorites too, but in short bursts, i prefer the quick action and satisfaction i get from Endless Runner games. That's just my preference.

Oh and right now, for me, the best runner games (not in particular order) are Zombie Carnaval, Axon Runners, Subway Surfers, Necrorun, Monkey Ninja, Run Roo Run, Mega Run, Tiny Wings, Crazy Control 2 and Probe the Humans. There are others which i myself would say are better than these titles, but these are the ones i enjoy most currently.

Don't be so quick to judge. Escape Bear isn't an endless runner (though it does have an endless mode for people who prefer that); it's level-based, and each of the 99 levels will have a finish line.
