On Temple Run 2 Avatar Upgrade – A Smart Girl’s Perspective

The default runner is a man. It is free (and the game is free as well)


But take a look at upgrades that require to collect or buy coins (either way you expend effort or money as per freemium model). So if you want to choose a female runner you have to first collect 5000 coins (by running the man) or pay for it.

I see this as bad price discrimination – purely s a pricing practitioner as well as a dad. But …


My eight year old daughter, who has become a fan of the game, believes it isn’t so. She argues it merely says you have to pay more to be a girl because girls are superior.

What is your take?
