Temple Run 2 has taken the mobile gaming world by storm since it launched two weeks ago, hitting 50 million downloads in its first two weeks of availability. According to developer Imangi Studios, that makes Temple Run 2 the fastest-growing mobile game of all time!
From the press release:
Imangi Studios today announced that Temple Run 2 has been downloaded over 50 million times on iOS, Android and Kindle devices. Reaching the milestone in 13 days breaks the previously set record for the fastest growing mobile game*. Temple Run 2 originally launched exclusively on the App Store on January 17 and quickly rose to the #1 slot in Free Apps, earning over six million downloads in less than 24 hours. Following a release on Google Play and Amazon Marketplace, the sequel continued its record-breaking success, racing to the #1 spot, respectively, in each store. Following in the footsteps of Temple Run, which has been downloaded over 170 million times, Temple Run 2 has cemented itself in mobile gaming history.
*In April 2012, Angry Birds Space became the fastest growing mobile game with 50 million downloads in 35 days.
It’s pretty amazing that any mobile game could dethrone Angry Birds as the king of app downloads – but it’s been a long time since anything new has come to Temple Run, and I suppose fans were pretty darn excited to check it out. Very impressive, indeed!
For those who haven’t tried it yet, Temple Run 2 is available now as a free download from the App Store.
