Temple Run 2 Is The Fastest Downloaded Mobile Game In History

iPhone-2

In my review of Temple Run 2, I called it an “awesome sequel.” Millions upon millions of people seem to agree. Temple Run 2 has become the fastest downloaded mobile game in history with 50 million downloads in just two weeks. The previous record was set by Rovio’s Angry Birds with 50 million downloads in 35 days.

Temple Run 2 for iOS hit 20 million downloads after its first week on the App Store. Imangi Studios, the company behind Temple Run, has since brought the game to Google Play on Android and the Amazon Marketplace.

Temple Run has evolved into something so much bigger than us,” says Keith Shepherd, co-founder of Imangi. “The game has performed beyond our wildest dreams, and we are thrilled that gamers and fans have embraced Temple Run 2 in such a short period of time.” The game has been at the very top of the charts in all three app stores.

Like Angry Birds, Temple Run has turned into a full-fledged franchise with t-shirts, mugs, and iPhone cases.
