It’s a given that Disney would release a video game of some
kind to complement a big movie release. Disney Pixar’s Brave is set to come out
on June 22, and Disney Mobile was looking for something that would have
longevity, not just an app that would be downloaded and forgotten in a week. That’s
why, instead of building their own game from scratch, they teamed up with
Imangi Studios to create Temple Run: Brave. Imangi is the tiny three-person studio that developed the hit iOS game,
Temple Run. The game boasts a whopping 80 million downloads to date and has 16 million
Temple Run: Brave is a collaborative effort between Disney
Mobile and Imangi Studios and will play the same as the original game, but with
the addition of archery, where you tap targets to earn extra coins. As Merida,
the feisty, red-haired princess, you weave and dodge your through the vibrant highlands
of Scotland to escape the clutches of Mordue, the demon bear. Along the way, tapestries that you collect will unravel the story.
Like the original Temple Run, you can use your coins for
power-ups and compete with your friends for leaderboard scores. Temple Run: Brave will cost $0.99 to download,
which comes with 2500 bonus coins and will be available for the iPhone, iPod
touch, iPad and Android on June 14.
