SEAL OF APPROVAL WINNER

Holiday 2012

Temple Run Board Game

The app Temple Run has established itself as a runaway hit and quickly become a guilty pleasure of just about anyone with an iPad, iPhone, tablet or Android device. Spin Master decided there was more to be mined from this cultural phenomenon if they turned it into a board game. According to our testers, they accomplished their goal. Game play is really quite fast so if you have just a few moments before dinnertime you can squeeze in a quick one. Just as with the app you need to go through a series of obstacles to escape the dangers that are right on your tail, namely some really nasty monkeys. There is an electronic element that really amps up the adrenaline nicely as it simulates the sounds of the chase. Here is one more example of an app making the jump from the small screen to a table top game. Not every attempt will pan out, but this one does.

HOW IT WORKS

A Seal of Approval review involves a multi-step process conducted over an eight-week period.

Parents and children, experience and review submitted products and services either already released or coming to market.

Participants fill out questionnaires for each product or service they test. They score based on 13 levels of criteria including quality, appeal, design, price, packaging, directions, desirability, stimulation, replay factor and more. Results are based on both statistical averaging and comments received by testers.

There are three testing periods each year:

It is non-refundable and has no bearing on the result of the testing. Additionally, we require three samples of the product or access codes for online submissions.
