Temple Run 2 Comes to Android Next Week

temple run1

That’s right, a sequel to Temple Run is finished and should be released on Android next Thursday. Dubbed Temple Run 2 (so clever), the new game has been built from the ground up, contains the same simple controls that you enjoyed from the first, and will likely be just as addictive. The small 2-person Imangi Studios team has grown to five, to take the game to another level. Since they now serve 170 million players on the original TR, this new venture has a lot to live up to. 

The run takes place in a temple this time around, with ropes, clouds, beautiful scenery, and mine cart rides. There are HD graphics, multi-tiered abilities for characters, special skills, and goals for each level, rather than the long list of achievements. All in all, it’s said to be mostly the same, just spiced up a lot.

It should be a blast, especially since it’ll be free again.

    The question is….. will this pull me away from Subway Surfer?


    I have it on my phone and it seems really buggy. Turns aren’t as smooth and it had some freezes. Maybe they should have waited to release it on any OS, but it’s free, so who am I to complain.

  • My Droid 3 is much too slow and buggy for this game or its predecessor version. {{v_v}}

  • SD_Scott

    Welp. There goes about 20 hrs of my life…

    Hopefully it is better than Temple Run Brave which was a complete disaster. Loved the original Temple Run. Still play it from time to time.

    • after several updates, Brave did get better. I’m kinda looking forward to TR2 though, maybe it’ll ween me off Hill Climb Racing.

      Would love Temple Run to have Multiple levels than one continuous that starts over every time you die.

    I prefer the new Pitfall! myself. It’s pretty awesome. I think Temple Run 2 took some ideas from it, like the mine cart rides.

    • zepfloyd

      This gameplay is very much inspired by Pitfall for sure, right down to the cart.

    • anezarati

      what i cant stand about pitfall is that you start back at the beginning when you die, but the beginning is always the same.

      • EvanTheGamer

        Also the “Back” button does not work either. lol

        Other than that though, Pitfall offers way more in the gameplay/features department than Temple Run offers.

  • Why android always have to be 2nd to iOS with new apps release. I been running this on my iPhone for the pass 2 weeks now. And loving it. Can’t wait to play it on my GN2

      While Android may have a straightforward SDK and not nearly be as ‘fragmented’ as haters try to claim, iOS essentially has 3 devices to worry about, and 2 (ipod and iphone) are nearly the same. Taking an extra week to flush out testing across a multitude of resolutions and SoCs for Android is not a big deal. Development still had to be side by side.

    Cool, wasted many an hour on the first ones.

    Definitely a day one download even if it did cost.

  • Nice. Temple Run is my favorite time waster. I retired after 6.2 million points.
