With over 50 million downloads and almost a million 5-star ratings, Temple Run has set the bar rather high for its successor, Temple Run 2.
As is the case with most successful games, the basic premise of Temple Run 2 is the same as the original: you're in possession of an idol that's been stolen from an ancient temple, which has angered a particularly murderous monkey who wants to get it back.
So what's changed? Well, the maps are more elaborate - this you can tell straight away as you zip-line your way into a brand new environment. However, the basic swipe controls remain the same as the original game. Read More
The original Temple Run was a huge hit on Android when it came out, following an already successful splash on iOS. Now, Imangi Studios is hoping it can pull the same feat off again with Temple Run 2. The title just launched on Apple's App Store today. Don't adjust your television sets, folks. Partly because you're probably not reading this on a TV so adjusting it would be silly and partly because, yes, this is still an Android blog. The developer has said that the new game will arrive on Android next week. January 24th to be precise. This does mean we can get an early look at it now:
The new game will feature a brand new Temple to Run through (I get it!). Read More
After countless bad copies, the official Temple Run game has finally hit the Google Play store! Like the iOS version, it's available for free and contains no adverts anywhere in the game. You can, however, make in-app purchases of coins to help you buy various items from the store as you progress. We'll cover that in a bit more detail later on, but for now, let's jump right in to the review!
When you load Temple Run for the first time, you're thrown straight into a game with a few pointers that allow you to get to grips with the controls and the aims of the game. Read More
After countless fakes, the real Temple Run is finally here. That's right - it is legit and available right on schedule, March 27th (looks like it happened Eastern time).
Even better news - it's free. Presumably, there are in-app purchases or ads, but we'll figure that out once we give it a go.
Update: No ads so far, but you can purchase coins for $0.99 or more (see the last screenshot below).
In the meantime, why don't you do that as well? I'll see you back here in a few hours. Or days. I won't judge.
Just remember to register for Google I/O in the morning, if you're thinking of going - don't forget, registration starts 7 a.m. Read More
