..240 000, to put it better :) My point was that the game gets way more credit than deserved, imo

I disagree. Temple Run is a perfect blend of casual and hardcore, it is really easy to play and rounds are short which is good for casuals, but its good for hardcores because it is challenging, fast, and the free 2 play aspects dont cheapen the experience like they do with 99% of the free 2 plays. And how is that retroarch allowed on the google play store? LOL. I get emulators, but that comes with the games? Has it been pulled yet?

Well I would expect some basic creativity at least. That doesn't necessarily mean a change in the core of the game.. but just reshaping, refreshing and enriching it. Angry birds star wars is a good example of that

I agree. The game is garbage. I don't understand the popularity of it. I did the same the first. A simple watching of a video the second told me there was no need to waste my time.
