Temple Run 2

Temple Run 2 is out now on iOS. Be prepared to ignore teachers and loved ones in favor of running away from monkeys.

Developer Imangi Studios introduced completely new aspects into the sequel of their massively popular hit. Surprisingly, the developer had to create a sequel because the original Temple Run would not work with new features such as hills and curved paths. Rather than try to update Temple Run, Imangi decided to produce a sequel that is more future-proof.

The company worked with Fuzzycube Software in developing the game.

Temple Run 2 features more of the same pick-up-and-play gameplay that made the first Temple Run so popular. Players will be using their fingers to string together a familiar combination of swipes and tilts across their iOS devices.

The sequel has new, rich environments with hills, valleys and rivers, which make for a much more lifelike experience. Players will have to face new obstacles with zip-lines and mining carts. In addition, the game has four playable characters, each with unique special abilities that must be unlocked.

Visually, Temple Run 2 is much more aesthetically pleasing. The sequel also features a bigger monkey chasing players.

Like the original, Temple Run 2 is free to play. Players can make in-app purchases for powerups, such as Coin Magnet, Coin Value, Pickup Spawn and Boost Distance, or extra coins.

Temple Run was first released in August 2011. The forever running game has been downloaded over 170 million times and continues to have multiple million active players daily.

Since its release, the developer has been working on ways to improve Temple Run. Last June, Imangi teamed with Disney to release a crossover version of the game based on the Pixar film Brave.

There is no word on when Temple Run 2 will be released on Android but expectations are that it will be out soon.
