Temple Run was a massive hit, topping 100 million downloads back in August 2012 and now over 170 million. If you’re ready to run for your life once more, Temple Run 2 is now available for iOS devices. Without straying too far from the original, Imangi Studios have brought a few updates that should keep the game fresh.

It features a new temple from which to escape. You’ll make your way through forests and even have to use zip lines and mine cars in your bid to get away with the cursed idol. And chasing you will be a “bigger monkey.”

Like the original version, Temple Run 2 is free to play but in-game purchases wil allow you to play new characters and get new powerups faster than simply by collecting coins.

Temple Run 2 is now available as a free download for iOS devices. An Android version is expected to follow perhaps as early as next week.

Imangi Studios today announced that Temple Run has been downloaded over 100 million times since it was first released for iOS devices a year ago today. Apple iOS devices accounted for 68 million downloads and the Google Android version another 32 million downloads.

“We never imagined that the game we were making and loved would be so well received around the world,” said Keith Shepherd, co-founder of Imangi Studios. “The last year has been incredible for us, and we are grateful to fans of the game. We hope to be able to provide them with more entertainment from the brand for years to come.”

Temple Run also appears to be addictive (something I can attest to). Since it has been available, some 10 billion sessions of Temple Run have been played. These amount to about 54,000 years of game play!

Temple Run is a free download from Google Play and the Apple App Store.

Weekend fun: Temple Run now available for Android

The very popular iOS game Temple Run made the jump over to the Android platform this week. The game is reminiscent of adventure films such as Indiana Jones:

You’ve stolen the cursed idol from the temple, and now you have to run for your life to escape the Evil Demon Monkeys nipping at your heels. Test your reflexes as you race down ancient temple walls and along sheer cliffs. Swipe to turn, jump and slide to avoid obstacles, collect coins and buy power ups, unlock new characters, and see how far you can run!

Additional coins are available through in-app purchases to gain extra powers or unlock various characters.

As addictive as I found the game, I’m hoping for an update to fix some issues, especially as selecting main menu options often crashes the game. Keep running, don’t die and you should be fine though!

Temple Run is available for free for Android devices from Google Play. It is also available for iOS devices from iTunes.
