What took Angry Birds Space long 35 days to achieve; the same milestone was achieved my Temple Run 2 just within 13 days! Few days back, Imangi Studios, the developers of Temple Run announced that, Temple Run 2 was downloaded over 50 million times! 😯 These 50 million downloads were across the 3 platform ie Android, iOS and Kindle.
On 17th January, 2013, Temple Run 2 made its debut on the i-App store, and in no time it became the market leader with over 6 million downloads in a day! Later the Kindle and Android were showered with its millions of downloads. But still the sequel has to do a lot to overcome the records of its predecessor which has crossed over 170 million downloads! 😎
So What’s New In This Sequel?
How far can you run away from the Giant Cursed Idol, and when your way is full of dangerous cliffs and millions of twists? The mobile gaming is been redefined with the debut of Temple Run 2, where you have to save your life by collecting coins and moreover by jumping over the huge gaps and ducking under the low decks! 🙂 The best act that I liked in this sequel is, swinging over the ropes, it looks superb! 😉 But running in the jungle with all these above hurdles, a step wrong can demise you totally! 😛
The crispy graphics of the sequel have been working flawlessly over the high end gadgets. But the tablets and smartphones with low configuration have been facing problems to run over Temple Run 2! 🙁 Temple Run 2 needs high configured smartphones and tablets for its working.

Here Comes Vitamin M
Finally everything ends with Vitamin M; even Imangi Studio has started thinking in monetary terms! 😎 Looking at its competitor Rovio (Angry Birds Developer), even Imangi Studio has been seen dealing with Temple Run clothes, Temple Run cards, Temple Run board games etc… etc… The 10/10 rated free app, which has splashed water on the paid apps, will also be now minting, inspite of being free! 😉
