Straight Line Cheat

There is a cheat where you can glitch the game into allowing you to run in a straight line. This is quite tricky to do but to perform it (which although doesn't allow you to save your score, you can take a screenshot on some phones to show off to your friends!) follow these instructions:

1. Enter the options menu and turn on the Tutorial. This gives you a simple set of turns and allows the glitch to be performed.
2. Start a run. As you approach the firt corner, double swipe on the screen as quickly as you can. You need to make sure the game registers both swipes, but do it very fast.
3. Your character will spin around and begin running in a straight line. It is still possible to die by swiping into the wall and letting the monkeys catch you, but you should be able to just leave the game alone and your character will keep on running!

You really need to have purchased some power-ups in advance to allow you to get big points on this, as otherwise you won't really come across any.

It only works if you haven't gotten the newest version, which most people have. If you get the updated version, it will get stormy and you will get the objective 'The Glitch'

The new update does not allow you to successfully get a high score using the cheat. if you do all the steps after 100 metres or so the weather turnes stormy and tutorial is shut off so you have to play to survive.
The creator became aware of the cheat and created an objective called 'The Glitch" that is why if you haven't updated, don't.

Well it DOES work. the owner of temple run even made an achievement called the glitch and I got it. Look for it if you don't think it works.

It does work, but since it is still in tutorial, and you simply restart if you die, you cannot redeem your score or coins.
