Temple Run 2 out now for iOS, out next week for Android

Temple Run 2 is available now for iPhone and iPad, and will hit Android next week.

This sequel to the original 3D endless runner has been one of the most eagerly anticipated follow-ups for any smartphone platform. Some 170 million people have downloaded the first game, so news of a sequel is big news indeed.

Temple Run 2 features a host of improvements over the original. It contains more varied and organic environments, including ziplines, mines and forests. All of these have been clothed in much-improved graphics.

The goal is still the same, of course. Your intrepid adventurer must escape from a temple with a cursed idol, Indiana Jones-style. This involves tilting your handset left and right to dodge and swiping up and down to jump and duck over/under obstacles.

You’ll find fresh additions to the playable character roster, and each has a special power to help with their progress.

That’s iOS sorted, then, but what about Android users? Whilst it’s not available just yet, Polygon reports that Temple Run 2 should be making its way over to Android as early as next week.

Apparently the game has been made on the Unity platform, which makes such swift ports easy. It also means that the game should be far more smooth and stable for the majority of players – some Android users experienced technical issues when running the original.

Are you excited by the news of Temple Run 2, or have you had enough of the premise thanks to all the Temple Run clones that have appeared over the past 12 months or so? Let us know on the Trusted Reviews Twitter and Facebook feeds, or via the comments box below.
