If you love Temple Run for iOS and Android and you have Windows 8, you are in for a treat! A new Xbox Game for Windows 8 is available called The Gunstringer, which takes the Temple Run concept to a whole new level.

Run as fast as you can to get away from the ghost and catch up to your target. While running make sure to avoid obstacles by jumping, sliding, or turning. Shoot targets or treasure chests for extra points and achievements. You can collect coins on the way to save up to buy things from the in-game store.

This game has two modes: one is story while the other is endless. The story gives you various levels and bosses to beat while the endless mode is like Temple Run in which you run as far as you can and break records.


***On Sale for a Limited Time Only!***
The Gunstringer returns on Windows 8 in this all-new sprint-to-the-finish twist on the wildly successful Xbox Kinect game!

Hit the trail at a dead run as you race through three sprawling Wild West locations and 15 levels as the Gunstringer, the legendary skeleton cowboy marionette bent on vengeance. But as the ol’ saying goes—if you climb in the saddle, be ready for the ride! Avoid deadly obstacles, take aim in fast-action shootin’ challenges, collect tasty loot, and battle outlaws—all while being pursued by the hands of Hell!

Complete the level-driven Story mode, and then challenge friends for braggin’ rights and loot payouts in three Endless Run levels. Exchange hard-earned loot for new customization options such as weapons, power-ups, and more to aid in the Gunstringer’s quest for the evil bandit!
