Temple Run 2 has been launched for Android gamers after iPhone users. Temple Run has been a darling of everyone who owns a Smartphone. The game is highly addictive and fun to play. Most of us are aware of what Temple Run is all about; let’s see how it came into being.
The Temple Run was conceived and developed by Imangi Studios; a small team of dynamic members; husband and wife Keith Shepherd and Natalia Luckyanova. They implemented and developed the technical side of the game. The graphics of the game are designed by the brilliant Graphics Designer Kiril Tchangov.
The game is an endless run; the player grabs an idol from the temple and runs to save his life from hellish monkeys. During the run, a number of obstacles are faced. They could be avoided by sliding from under them or jumping over them. A tilt of the gadget makes the player change his position. The longer the player runs, the more points he makes. He can also grab the coins on his way. These points then in turn could be used to shop in the Game’s Store. The store offers many upgrades for the power and other perks to improve the game play.
All these qualities make Temple Run a ridiculously addictive game. The thirst to run for coins never ends!
Temple Run was initially released for a price of $0.99 but soon it became a freemium.
Temple Run was released in August 2011 for iOS. It has been gaining popularity and fame ever since. It was then released for Android in March 2012. It has achieved more than 50 million players worldwide and it is quite a record. Imangi Studios has become as popular as, if not more than, Zynga Studios which is one of the most popular Software Houses of the world that makes games.
In Jaunary 2013, Imangi Studios released Temple Run 2. It has achieved more that 40 million downloads within a few weeks.
Temple Run 2
Temple Run 2 is different from Temple Run in terms of graphics and the setting but the game play is quite similar. You still have to duck and jump and turn left and right corners.
But the second version of the game I mean Temple Run 2 is set somewhere high up in the mountains where you may fall off the path and down into an unknown depth if you take a wrong turn. This makes the player feel that the stakes are very high. After running for a few hundred meters, a tunnel appears which has a railway track and you jump into a cart. Then you must turn the cart left and right in accordance with the direction the track is turning in.
The characters are the same as those of Temple Run. Guy Dangerous is available, while Karma Lee, Barry Jones and Scarlett Fox are unlocked by using “Coins”.
The two versions of the game Temple Run and Temple Run 2 are very similar to each other in terms of game play. The character runs away from a Temple with a stolen idol. A monster chases it through paths. The player must jump over obstacles and voids and duck underneath other hurdles. Then you also have to turn left and right when the path turns different ways. The further you run before either the monster catches you or you fall off the path, the more points you score.
Android is defined by its Play Store and iOS is defined by its App Store. Both of these Stores’ game section is defined and enhanced by the availability of Temple Run! Temple Run and Temple Run 2 has been a success story. We hope that Imangi Studios keep on producing Apps and Games of this quality in the future!
