The Temple Run

Amanda started by running to the Crypt. She was lucky to pull the right book first, and advanced to the The Pit of the Pendulum. Unfortunately, she did not have enough power to hit the column and instead had to jump off to knock it down. In the The Tomb of the Headless Kings, she encountered her first temple guard. She found the head and had to place it on both skeletons to open the door to the The Jester's Court. It took her three tries to open the door that led to the The Dark Forest where the temple guard spirit in the left tree caught her. Gator entered the temple with about a minute and a half left. He finally broke through the wall to the The Quicksand Bog and climbed the ladder up to the The Shrine of the Silver Monkey with a minute left. A temple guard happened to be in this room and Gator gave up his pendant. After assembling the statue, the door leading to the The Room of the Ancient Warriors was delayed in opening up. The third set of armor worked opening the door to the The Chamber of the Sacred Markers where the Mussel Shell Armor was, where he grabbed it and quickly ran out of the temple. He ran across the Pit, through the Crypt and escaped with 10 seconds left.
