Temple Run 2 Fastest Downloaded Mobile Game Ever, 50 Million Copies in Two Weeks

Templerun2In the two weeks since Temple Run 2 launched on the App Store, Google Play, and the Amazon Marketplace, the app has been downloaded more than fifty million times, the fastest downloaded mobile game in history.

The previous fastest downloaded game was Angry Birds Space, selling 50 million copies in under six weeks -- though Angry Birds Space was a pay app, not a free download like Temple Run 2.
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.

“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.”
Temple Run 2 is available as a free download from the App Store. [Direct Link]

Great...I hope they are able to fix a few of the bugs before long

1. When you get a power up while it is already active the new one doesn't reset the duration, it still ends based on the length of the original.

2. I went past 1,000,000 meters and it didn't give me any exp and has a duplicate 1,000,000 meters achievement still saying I'm only about half ways done. Once I completed then it gave me a second 500,000 coins achievement so I'm sure I'm toast on that one as well.

3. My lifetime coins are not anywhere close to correct. it says I have 128,884 total in 292 runs with a single run high of 14,228. Also it shows I'm over half ways to 500,000 lifetime on the achievement.

Yea I really like playing this game, not sure what draws me to it. It's like Forest Gump I guess you just want to keep running and then maybe one day I'll stop.

The mechanics interaction w/ the environment are not as good as the 1st, but is easy for it to get lots of downloads when it's free though.

It's certainly a nice update to TR1, but they dropped the iCade support in TR2! This was one of the best features. Two steps forward and (at least) one step back. Hope iCade comes in an update.

It's too laggy for me. I have to put it in airplane mode to play. I have a 4S.
