Temple Run 2 has now became the fastest downloaded mobile game ever with over 50 million downloads in just a fortnight. Previously the prestigious title of the fastest downloaded mobile game was with Rovio’s Angry Birds Space which surpassed 50 million downloads mark in 35 days.
This Thursday, Developers from Imangi Studios proudly announced the success story of their game and told the press that since the release of Temple Run 2 two weeks ago, it has been collectively downloaded over 50 million times on Apple, Android and Kindle devices.
On the very first day of its launch on Apple store on 17th January, 2013 it quickly rose to number 1 slot in Free Apps category of iTunes app store and garnered more than 6 million downloads within the next 24 hours. It also rose to number one slot in Google Play store and Amazon app store when it was later released on these platforms.
Surpassing the 50 million downloads mark for TR 2 within the span of just two weeks, is no less than a feat by any given standard. If we analyze these download stats in further depth, the figures are simply outstanding – the game has seen 3.85 million downloads a day, 160,000 downloads an hour, 2,671 downloads a minute and 45 downloads every second.
The downloads stats of the original Temple Run, that was released back in 2011, are equally impressive as it has now been downloaded for almost 170 million times. Given the awesome response of Temple Run 2, hopefully it will surpass the downloads of the original title within a much shorter time span.
Among the Imangi Studio team, no body seemed to be more surprised and amazed with the response of the game than Keith Shepherd, the co-founder of Imangi, who said:
“Temple Run has evolved into something so much bigger than us. The game has performed beyond our wildest dreams, and we are thrilled that gamers and fans have embraced Temple Run 2 in such a short period of time.”
The gameplay of Temple Run 2 is almost the same as the original Temple Run, but features an increased difficulty level with additional hurdles and cool powerups. The user experience in TR 2 is also much smoother and offers quite superior graphics than the previous game.
