This reminds me a lot of Zombie Highway.

Interesting - so it's a cross between Temple Run and Zombie Highway. There are turns like temple run (though not as frequent) and instead of collecting stars, you run over zombies. It also has a similar shop to TR with powerups as well as weapons and cars. Like ZH, there are car obstacles to avoid, and apparently zombies can hang on to your car (haven't seen that happen yet).

Will give it a try, but no achievements is a downer

It doesn't have achievements, but it does have missions and leaderboards. Also, the guns are automatic, so it's more about the driving and collecting coins like Temple Run. However, the mutants do make it a bit of a challenge - some hang on to your car, some explode if you hit them, some just walk around, ready for you to run over em.
