Temple Run 2 was released as a free download on the App Store towards the end of last week, and has been downloaded by hordes of iDevice users. In fact, in its first day it was downloaded an insane 6 million times. Over its first 4 days in the App Store the title has been installed over 20 million times securing its place at the top of the free apps chart. Perhaps more impressively, it’s also sitting pretty at the top of the Top Grossing charts thanks to its attractive in-app purchasing of gems. With so many downloads in such a short time frame, it’s become one of the most successful launches of all time. The developers at Imanji will be delighted I’m sure.
It’s got a little distance to go if it wants to catch up with the original Temple Run, which has amassed an impressive 170 million downloads across iOS and Android devices. But, with number 2 still to launch on Android, I doubt it will take that long to catch up with its predecessor.
