Temple Run 2 has now been downloaded 20 million times on iOS in four days
Temple Run 2 has launched just four days ago, but that didn’t stop it from climbing on top of the popularity ladder on both iOS, and now the stats are in - the sequel to the endless runner accumulated a whopping 20 million downloads in those four days.

Imangi Studios surprised everyone with the release of Temple Run 2 adding better graphics, a new and more challenging environment as well as added bonuses and powerups.

Temple Run 2 has now been downloaded 20 million times on iOS in four days
Temple Run (as well as its sequel) is a free game with no ads and no time limits, instead it monetizes on in-app purchases. It is a little known fact that initially the original game launched as a paid, $0.99 app, and only later the price was slashed to zero.

Now, the in-app purchases have obviously brought much more profit to the developers from Imangi Studios. And the popularity of Temple Run 2 is also proving that free spreads faster and tends to bring in more profits.

The sequel to the Indiana Jones-like endless runner started with 6 million download within the first 24 hours. Still, it will take some time until the second game reaches the 170 million downloads, the original Temple Run has.

Supposedly it's this week. I really like the original Temple Run, this one seems to improve on everything that the first one lacked in. It will do VERY well on Android also.
