‘Temple Run 2’ Has Been Downloaded 20 Million Times Since Last Week

Imangi Studio’s Temple Run 2 has been a popular title on the Apple App Store since it was released last week. Reports now indicate the game has been downloaded over 20 million times since its debut.

That amazing number was achieved over the span of just a few days. Cinema Blend reports that gamers have logged over 210 million sessions of the sequel since its bow. The website took this figure one step further by stating the gameplay time logged thus far is the equivalent of 1,775 years. That’s certainly a lot of exploring.

As of this writing, the sequel is still the top free app available in Apple’s iOS store. The game allows players to take control of an adventurer who runs endlessly through a series of increasingly-difficult stages. The latest installment introduces the use of zip lines and mine carts.

According to Touch Arcade, Imangi is understandably thrilled about the success its latest adventure game has enjoyed thus far. Co-founder Keith Shepard said the popularity of Temple Run 2 was overwhelming. He added that he was glad fans of the first game were enjoying the sequel.

The Inquisitr previously reported that developers spent more time crafting, coding, and polishing the game than promoting the title prior to its release. Shepard explained that this luxury comes with being such a small studio.

He said:

“It’s one of the joys of being a small indie studio. We love making games, and plan staying small making games. That’s something you can do on this platform.”

Although the game is free to play, Temple Run 2 encourages users to purchase coin bundles. This in-game currency can then be used to a wide variety of extras. However, you’re under no obligation to do so if that’s not your thing.

A gameplay trailer for the title has been embedded below.

Android fans who feel as though they’ve been left in the dark will be able to download the title when it launches on the platform later this week.
