Temple Run 2 features the same controls as its predecessor. However, the gameplay itself is slightly different insofar as it introduces new obstacles, such as zip-lines, mine tracks, sharper turns, waterfalls, and jets of fire. The game also features new power-ups, and players now have the ability to save the protagonist from death by using green gems that are collected while running, or purchased online. The game is set in a different location than the first game, and the main character runs faster. The three monkeys that chased the character called Nuwan in the original game have been eliminated. Now, a singular enlarged monkey called Cuchanck is the sole antagonist.The controls and the overall game theme of Temple Run 2 are similar to the first game. Players who are unable to collect these gems have the option to buy them online. On the other hand, those who have been annoyed by the monkeys that chase their characters in the previous Temple Run will be glad to know that these pesky primates have been removed in the new game. However, the sequel now has one monkey antagonist named Cuchanck. Well, this adversary is similarly cumbersome but you get to experience a different kind of trouble with it.
