Screenshots 3 and 4 look interesting.. Maybe it's time for the fourth Temple Run app

Well, reading this, I'll put my thoughts up as someone dissapointed by Temple Run 2. I'm also basing this opinion off the description, as I don't want to get this game until I see videos of it (again, because of my TR2 dissapointment)

Honestly, it does catch my attention. Primarilly because it does something I haven't seen in a 3D endless runner (that comes to mind), which is change the entire environment in the area you are in. Do point me out on that if that has been done before

The hot air balloning part makes me think of both a mixture of the archery mini-game from Temple Run Brave and the mine cart from Temple Run 2. It does seem more towards the mine cart for me, though if someone could say what the life system for the hot air balloon segment, then it could be a worth addition

It's also nice that they are keeping the Temple Run 2 engine and not simply reverting back to the original Temple Run engine.

Also, by the look of screenshot 5, it looks like only the wizard Oz is playable in this, so if someone could confirm that, it would be nice. It would be better if we could switch into other charachters of the film and maybe even the orignal Oz movie

But yeah, seems like a nice game. Again, I'm being cautious due to the lack of videos about it, so don't trust this opinion yet

If you're one of the people who complained when Temple Run 2 came out, nothing will pretty much change your opinion on this, but if you're still into the whole Temple Run thing (as far as endless runners go, from a gameplay-standpoint, it's still the best in my opinion), you'll love this. There's nothing you can really say about the game. It's gorgeous to look at, just as fun as always, yet another natural evolution for the series and will most definitely end up being the top paid app within the next few hours.

Naturally. Comparing this to Temple Run 2, this game is what Temple Run: Brave was to Temple Run...in a nutshell.

That does make sense, right? >_>

Disappointed that they chose to name this "TempleRunOz" on our devices as opposed to the usual "Temple Run" with "OZ" in the icon...it is there afterall.
