Temple Run 2 Sets New Mobile Game Download Record

Imangi is giving Rovio a (temple) run for its money. According to a press release, Imangi Studios’ newest game, Temple Run 2, was downloaded 50 million times in 13 days, besting the previous record held by Rovio Entertainment’s Angry Birds Space, which crossed the 50 million threshold after 35 days last year. It’s worth pointing out, however, that the main version of Angry Birds Space costs 99 cents, while the Temple Run games are free. Rovio’s game has been downloaded more than 100 million times, and was the most popular paid app on both iPhone and iPad in 2012.
