Temple Run 2 Arriving This Week
Temple Run 2, sequel to the 2011 hit mobile game, is arriving on iOS devices this week. It's already available in New Zealand and will hit the App Store in North America on Thursday.
TR2 is an "endless runner." Players control an explorer fleeing from demon monkeys. They'll have to duck and hop past obstacles to evade their pursuers. All the while, they'll pick up coins. These coins can be used to buy new characters and other extras in an in-game shop.
The premise is very simple but smartphone and tablet owners have been eating it up with a spoon. It was downloaded 2.5 million times this Christmas. A sequel seems like a no-brainer.
Temple Run 2, as you can see from the gameplay footage below, boasts much better visuals than its predecessor. It's also said to include additional power-ups and achievements for players to earn. Each character also has unique special abilities.
