If you love mobile gaming but have been waiting for the next big thing to hit the iOS App Store then it looks like Imangi Studios have you well and truly covered. With over 170 million downloads since launch; the Temple Run game has proved to be one of the most successful titles to be released on the iPhone and iPad, but the fun just doesn’t stop there. Imangi Studios are back and they have most-definitely upped their game, with Temple Run 2 starting to become available in App Store markets across the world.
The official sequel to the smash-hit game comes directly from the same development team with a little bit of help thrown in from FuzzyCube Software, and it looks as fantastic and addictive as ever. The second iteration of the Temple Run franchise brings the same infinite runner, playform gameplay with fast-paced chasing, high jumping, cliff navigating and ground sliding action that kept gamers coming back for more. But is accompanied by stunning graphics and extremely enticing environments.
The original Temple Run was so successful that it’s difficult to imagine how the developers could take it to the next level and make things better, but they’ve managed it. New danger is to be found on the verge of extremely daunting cliffs as well as the new skills that need to be mastered to successfully fly down zip lines that randomly occur during the chase. Running away from evil enemies shouldn’t really that difficult a task to accomplish, but when random mines are placed around your characters feet, it can prove a little problematic.
As well as the set of new environments, Temple Run 2 also offers a whole set of new obstacles to overcome as well as different power-ups to collect and buy using collected or purchased coins. A new set of achievements are also included with Game Center integration as well as special powers for each player character and a new and extremely daunting larger monkey to run away from. It’s got a great reputation, a large and evil monkey, perilous cliff edges and it’s free of charge to download – what more could a mobile gamer want?
Temple Run 2 will be a free of charge download when it hits worldwide stores with an in-app purchase being available to double collected coins.
