Imangi Studios' hit game Temple Run 2 received a significant update today, adding a new water feature, holiday artifacts, and a limited-time playable Santa character.
Temple Run 2 now includes a water slide, which players navigate by tilting their devices left and right to dodge rocks. As with regular gameplay, swiping is used to change direction and duck under logs.
The game also includes several holiday additions, such as a Santa character unlocked with 60 gems that can be purchased or earned through gameplay. There are also holiday artifacts like presents and stockings to unlock, along with Santa hats for each character. Our sister site TouchArcade has posted a video showing some of the new features in the game.
