Temple Run 2 released for Android
As promised a week ago, the sequel to the most popular never-ending running game, Temple Run has arrived for Android users, who can now head over to the Google Play Store to download Temple Run 2 and start running again!
The game, which launched for iOS last week has already crossed a whopping 20 million downloads in just four days. Fans have already played the game 210 million times. That's over 1,775 years of gameplay. The free app reigned the charts of the App Store as the 'top free app' for 12 hours after its debut.
"The response from fans has been overwhelming. We are thrilled players want more of the Temple Run universe, and we hope to grow and expand the game over the coming months," says Keith Shepherd, co-founder of Imangi.
Developed by Imangi Studios, the original game was an instant hit with over 170 million downloads across the App Store, Google Play and the Amazon Marketplace.
In June last year, Imangi Studios had teamed up with Disney for a special edition of the game and brought Temple Run Brave for iOS and Android, with the the locale and character based on the Disney - Pixar movie, Brave. You are in control of Merida, the main protagonist - helping her run, slide, jump and turn and shoot your way across the wilds of Scotland.
Temple Run 2 promises beautiful new graphics, more vibrant environs, new hurdles, more power ups and achievements. The basic gameplay stays true to the original game, which means you still are the thief behind the stolen cursed idol and continue running. But this time round, there's one huge weird-faced monkey chasing you down the temple cliffs and ruins instead of three as seen in the original game.
The sequel has also introduced rope swinging and mine trailer riding sequences reminiscent of a game called Pitfall! Nevertheless, the game is even more exciting and colourful than before.
