After 100 Million Downloads, Temple Run Celebrates With Retina iPad Update And More

One of the very few App Store games to reach Angry Birds-level popularity is Temple Run. Developed by the small team at Imangi Studios, the game has seen incredible success in Apple’s App Store and now on Android as well. In celebration of Temple Run’s one year anniversary, Imangi has announced that the game has been downloaded 100 million times across iOS and Android devices. That’s quite an incredible feat.

A Temple Run update has been released today that brings full support for the third-gen iPad’s Retina display alongside a new power-up. All of Imangi’s other paid games have also been made free in the App Store for a limited time too.

What’s New in Version 1.5

Thank you for helping Temple Run hit over 100 MILLION downloads worldwide!

In this update:

– Beautiful high res graphics for the retina iPad!
– New Powerup: PermaWings! Put these on at the beginning of the game, and you will resurrect when you die!
– Ability to disable and enable individual power ups!
– More achievements!
– Fixed a few bugs

Keep running!

The new Temple Run can be downloaded for free in the App Store. Check out Imangi’s website for links to all of its other iOS games.
