Make sure some of the rock jumps are in the centre of the screen otherwise you will fall and die.
If you hit one of the smaller tree roots it does't necessarily mean 'Game Over', you can still keep ahead of the monkeys as long as you don't hit another tree root.
To get a Head Start in Temple Run, you need to go into the store, scroll down into Utilities, and purchase the 'boost ahead 1000m' item for 2,500 coins.
To activate it, double tap the center of the screen.
To get the Mega Bonus, whereby you need to fill the bonus meter four times (I.e. Four lots of 100 coins), you need to collect 100 coins at a time without tripping. Repeat this four times in one run to get the Mega Bonus.
When trying to get these two trophies, which reward you for ignoring coins over set distances, it is a good tactic to pause the game at the start of the turn so that you can see where the coins are. Then, unpause it and try to get the trophy.
If you tilt to one side, it should give you more time to avoid the coins too.
Unlike most other games, there is no 'end' to Temple Run. As the levels are randomly generated, you can (and will) keep going forever!
You are given the option of buying multiple Explorers in Temple Run. Note, however, that there is no difference between any of them - you are much better off spending your money on powerups and utilities.
To get the Spartan objective, which is described as getting to 1 million points without using any power-ups, ensure you don't collect any power-ups (obviously) or use any resurrections.
Once you hit 1 million points, you can simply kill yourself to get the achievement.
If you use power-ups after 1 million points, it will not give you the achievement, so be sure to die, or kill yourself, as soon as possible after you hit the target score.
Tilt to the smaller part of the root and you do not nee to jump. You will not die eather!
