Folks, it seems we have yet another addicting smartphone and tablet game on our hands. A year after its launch, Temple Run has had 100 million idol-snatching fans out there eager to collect coins while dodging wild demonic monkey attacks. Imangi Studios has just confirmed that a third of these are Android users. To be exact, 32 million of these downloads are from Android devices, while 68 million are from iOS.
Since August 2011, more than 10 billion sessions of the game have been played, which results in an average of about 100 games per user. Imangi says these amount to almost 54,000 person-years spent playing. That’s a lot of years [...]
In yet another game and movie tie-in, Imangi has teamed up with Disney to release Temple Run: Brave, the sequel to the wildly popular game Temple Run.
In Temple Run: Brave, you will be taking on the role of the bright-haired Merida. She’s the main character on the upcoming Disney animated feature Brave, who happens to be a skilled archer.

Almost every high-end Android smartphone released this year will feature a quad-core processor and with the announcement of project “Kai” by Nvidia, it looks like in the tablet arena, this might be true for even low-cost devices. Along with the increasingly common availability of high-resolution HD displays and the advances in processor technology, gaming on a handheld device has become an incredibly popular activity.
We are seeing the growing trend of optimizing classic PC games for handheld devices, with made-for-mobile games also becoming more graphic-intensive, and featuring full story-lines and “campaign” modes. But sometimes, it is the [...]
Good news for Temple Run fans. In preparation for the release of the latest Pixar flick, Brave, Disney has joined forces with Temple Run makers Imangi Studios to give the cult game a new twist. And by twist, we mean a new game – Temple Run: Brave.
The folks at Inside Mobile Apps who were able to play Temple Run: Brave during a private preview event last week said that the game is very similar to the “original” Temple Run. Obviously, the original main character was replaced by Merida, the heroine of Pixar’s movie.
The gameplay remains the same, with Merida continously running along various paths, with a demonic bear named Mordru [...]
I am not a huge gaming fan, probably because I just don’t have enough time. But there are moments like standing in a queue or waiting for someone, when a little mindless distraction is welcomed. And that is where Temple Run comes in.

You need to escape from some nasty looking Monkeys who are upset because you stole some treasure from the temple. The gameplay is simple – swipe left to turn left, swipe right to turn right, and so [...]

To celebrate the milestone, Temple Run’s game developer, Imangi Studios, has decided to update the app by adding a new social media feature, as well as by fixing some bugs. Thanks to newly implemented Twitter integration, you can now flex your narcisstic top-score sharing tendencies easily amongst yourtwiends. As for the bugs, they have fixed a bug that makes it harder to get points, a bug that made the runner accelerate too fast, and a host [...]
