The game received rave reviews and racked up good scores from Metacritic and IGN. After its success on iTunes, the developer released the Android version of the game on March 2012, which also garnered over one million downloads in just three days. In June 2012, Imangi Studios teamed up with Disney to launch ‘Temple Run: Brave’, a paid mobile game to promote Disney’s movie ‘Brave’. Temple Run: Brave was an instant hit among the masses and was reported to be the most-downloaded paid game at that time.

In March 2012, Imangi Studios reported that it had started the development works for the sequel game to Temple Run in order to bring back the thrills and spills of the company’s flagship game. After nine months of development works, Temple Run 2 was finally released on January 16, 2013 for iOS and January 24, 2013 for Android.
The new sequel game comes with appealing graphics, fascinating organic environments, new obstacles & power-ups, extra special powers and a bigger ape.

You score points and gain powers on the way, but it is immaculate for you to react quickly or seed the demise of the character by crashing, falling over or being caught by the ape.
